Apologise, dating for 8 years and no ring taste
Posted in And dating
My boyfriend and I have sure been to hell and back in this relationship. And we have. Now Im 24 and hes 27 and I feel we finally have gotten to a point in our relationship where we are mature and moving foward and buiding towards something serious. All my friends around me are getting engaged and it upsets me sometimes because they've only been with their bf's for like 2 years or so. I know my boyfriend loves me to death. He decided to go back to school and get his associates which he graudated in May after going PT for 3 and a half years We even lived together for a year and it was so great, but due to financial circumstances we decided to move out when the lease was up and save for a house. We've talked about getting married plenty of times, but I dont wanna bring it up too much because I dont wanna make him feel pressured into it.
A walk date? Is the absence of a ring the only issue here? I completely understand if no one else does! It's like what's the hold up?! It doesn't take that long to figure out if you want to marry me esp we've been together this long -you know if I'm the one or not.

Life doesn't always work by the numbers. I never really understood why "he" holds the key to the door that unlocks a proposal of marriage.
He must understand that a firm proposal of marriage isn't like menstruation - it doesn't just "happen when it happens"; it happens when one proposes and the other accepts. This is your life, OP. If this a deal breaker for you, it's time to get serious.
Tell him you're not sitting around waiting for it to happen.

I told him how much marriage meant to me, but I would not force him or threaten him. I made the decision that being with FH was more important. Two years later after me telling him how much it mattered to me - in his own time-he asked.
How is the relationship otherwise? Any recurring fights? If he proposed, is everything else good or is the focus on that masking other things? My FH was kinda the same way. We have two kids together 7 and 7 months and we've been together 9 Years.
He dragged his feet and talked in circles about getting married. Finally after 9 Years and Two Kids he proposed. I've been wanting to get married since year one. Long story short I kinda nagged for years and then I stopped. I knew he was gonna marry me I just didn't know when. Well eventually he got it together and gave me my dream proposal. I'm glad I waited.
