It’s a sad reality that this economy is really setting the timelines for us waiting ladies. I’m sorry he didn’t get the job…I hope he gets one soon! Until then, just keep supporting him the best you can. Things will definitely speed up once he feels financial security. Good luck to you! I know it’s hard to wait! >.<

Sucks.

Its commendable (and typical) that your guy doesn’t want to put a ring on it until he is comfortable financially.  There is a relationship book out there called Act Like A Lady: Think Like a Man by Steve Harvey that states that men need three things before they can pop the question. They are concerned with who they are, what they do, and how much they make, and won’t be comfortable taking the next step until they have reached that next level in self-fulfillment.

Regardless of what people think and how much they claim love should come into the equation, we all need to keep climbing that cliche (but kind of true) Heirarchy of Needs by Maslow. A man SHOULD know his path before he proposes spending the rest of his life with you, out of fairness.

Anyway, I’ll get off my soapbox. Keep strong, lady. Hopefully he gets a job soon.

@LuckyJuls: The Heirarchy of Needs is an excellent point. Love a good psychological argument! I think many people take these steps for granted. Good post.

@LuckyJuls: I never thought to apply the hierarchy of needs to waiting, it makes sense.
