You have had the talk a few times… Maybe many times.
You have fought.
You have cried.
You question what is he waiting for.
He is ready to do everything- live together, have a baby, buy a house BUT he is hesitant when you speak about marriage.
You know your man best so take my advice with a grain of salt but don’t let him waste your time. If you are in your 30s, do you really need 3+ years to “wait”…?
I have spoken to a number of men and they all have been quite frank with me- men go for what they want. If Beyoncé or Ivanka Trump (just pointing out two beautiful ladies; nothing more by that reference) dated them- they wouldn’t wait to put a ring on it.
Well guess what YOU are a Beyoncé or an Ivanka Trump to a good man. So don’t let the one who doesn’t see it waste your time.
This is a post I recently read. His girlfriend is waiting for him to propose.What would you tell her knowing how he really feels?
Again- you know your man best but don’t let him waste your time.
Me [35 M] with my SO [32 F] of 7 years. Not sure if proposing her is the right thing to do (Long) from relationships

It makes me so sad to read things like this. I get the guy doesn’t want to hurt because he genuinely cares about her and loves her as a best friend but it is selfish and sad that he doesn’t see he is keeping her from a man that will worship the ground she walks on.

I think this guy is probably a good guy at heart. But he’s made some really poor asshole decisions. Do her a favor and let her go meet someone that actually wants to be with her.

Sometimes, I think people talk themselves into relationships because they think that person is their only option, despite what reality actually is. This was certainly the case for that reddit poster, and I know I’ve personally fallen into that sort of thinking in my past relationships. It’s essentially an insecurity that most people don’t realize, often until it’s too late.
In that poster’s case, I think it’s pretty shallow that he wants someone with values, and yet wants to dump her just because she doesn’t tickle his pickle the way he’d like. This woman has practically given the prime of her life to him, her virginity, her loyalty…and he wants to throw that away over mere physical attraction?
I agree with the OP completely. If you have to keep questioning what he’s waiting for, stop waiting…you’re only wasting your life. I feel so sad for the woman in the reddit post…if she had questioned him sooner, she could have spent the past 5-6 years with her prince charming instead, and then the reddit guy would be free to find a relationship that satisfies him. People shoud just be more honest with each other the moment they start doubting…not 7 years down the line.

RobbieAndJuliahaha : I find her to be very beautiful. Lots of men fall over her in real life. But as I stated earlier:
Just pointing out two beautiful ladies, nothing more meant by that reference.
