- Wedding: October 2012
I had gotten online looking for how long a woman should wait for a proposal and saw a few of the blogs.
I have been dating my boyfriend for 2 1/2 years. He talks about marrying me, he says every week that goes by gets him closer and closer to popping the question. He tells my friends that i am the one. He tells his friends he couldn’t see his life with out me. He already has a successful business so money isn’t the issue. He even says he already has the ring.
Yet, I am STILL not engaged. He recently moved in with me “temporarily” since he just rented out his place on a spur of the moment kind of deal. He is expecting me to move with him when he finds “us” the perfect house. However, I don’t plan on moving with him unless he has committed to me. “why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free” Right?
He doesn’t want any kids, which is fine with me. I was already married for 13 years, divorced and have one kid out of the house and another on her way in 7 years. What is bothering me is this, we were talking about priests and how they may be changing the rules on them being able to get married and have kids. I said i had always thought that it was a strange rule anyhow. His response was, ” why, if you’re not having kids, what’s the point in getting married?” All I could think in my head was, ” Wait…are you kidding me? All this talk about getting married to me, knowing we weren’t going to procreate, and this is how you feel?”
Is this my answer as to WHY he hasn’t proposed yet? Am i being strung along? I surely hope not!!!! He is not the BS-er type and i feel what he tells me is true and we are on the same page. However, all this waiting around to move forward is becoming frusterating! What do you guys think?
