You’ve been seeing this particular guy for quite some time now. You’ve gotten to know him pretty well and you’ve really enjoyed your time together. Sure, things haven’t been perfect. But you know relationships are never designed to be perfect to begin with. You’ve had your share of obstacles and problems along the way but the both of you have always found a way to just pull through. You have always been able to work through whatever problems you might have as a couple.
And you’ve somehow managed to find yourselves in a place of stability and comfort with one another. You love your partner and you are even probably sure that this is the guy you’re going to want to spend the rest of your life with. However, you’ve been really frustrated as of late. You know that you love him and that he loves you in return, but why hasn’t he popped the question yet? Could it be that he’s still unsure about spending the rest of his life with you? Is he having second thoughts? Will he ever come around to asking you to marry him?
Well, the fact that you’re reading this article now is proof that you’re desperate. You probably really want him to lock you down already; and it’s really frustrating to you that he hasn’t done anything yet. You’re so disappointed that he hasn’t initiated the first steps to taking your relationship to the next level. Are you wasting your time? Is there a reason for you to be worried? Could your relationship be stuck in limbo and there’s no escape for either of you? What if you’ve been in a relationship with someone who never had any intentions of marrying you in the first place?
There must be a million questions running through your mind and you need to just find some inner peace. Calm down. Relax. There’s no need to panic just yet. You can’t be jumping to conclusions right away. There’s no need to worry about things that you’re unsure of. Just because he isn’t proposing to you yet doesn’t mean that he’s never going to pop that question eventually. There are many possible reasons that could explain as to why he hasn’t gotten down on one knee yet. Maybe he’s still trying to plan the entire event. Maybe he’s still trying to save up some money before he does ask you to marry him. Maybe he’s just going through a lot of things at work for now.
Whatever the case, instead of just being anxious about everything, it’s best for you to just focus on all the signs that he does have intentions of marrying you. If you notice that these things apply to him, then don’t worry. Just sit and be patient. He’s going to propose to you when he’s ready – and you better be just as ready when he does.
1. He talks to you about his desires to settle down and have a family.
If he’s talking to you about ideas of settling down in life, then you can best bet that he has plans of marrying you. He wouldn’t be bringing up these things with you if he didn’t have plans of eventually tying the knot with you. He’s already foreshadowing the kind of lives that you’re going to have together.
2. He never even entertains the idea of being in a relationship with someone else.
You know that he’s always going to stay committed to you. He’s always going to make it a point to stay loyal to you. He’s never going to make you feel like he will replace you. He’s never going to make you feel like you don’t have him locked down. If you know that he’s straight with you, then you don’t have much to worry about.
3. Things are still moving forward in your relationship no matter how slowly.
Keep everything in perspective. Just because he hasn’t proposed to you yet doesn’t mean your relationship isn’t necessarily moving forward. So as long as the both of you are still maintaining a strong passion and intimacy with one another, then you can always have something to be happy about.
Marriage is something that you can never take lightly – and it’s certainly something that no one should just be rushing into. There are many factors that go into determining the strength and potential of a marriage. And these are all things that really need to be taken into consideration before anything is solidified. You wouldn’t want to be pressured into going into a marriage that you’re unsure of. So you shouldn’t be doing the same with him either. Your time will come. And the both of you just have to make sure that you’re both ready for it when it does. And if you play your cards right, your marriage will be the most amazing experience of your lives.
