I just heard about a young woman who ended a 10 year relationship with her college sweetheart. She wanted to get married. I was shocked. Ten years. That story has a happy ending, when Ben overcomes his nuptial fears and proposes to Jennifer.
He promised end of Still no proposal. He promises we are getting married and having children, but still no proposal.
My boyfriend and I were together for five years, which is a pretty long time for a lot of modern romances—so much so that I thought we'd be tying the knot soon.
I brought it up again tonight after he had worked 12 hrs. I even told him mos ago just get me a fake ring idc you can get me something better down the road. He talks about the future, but still no proposal. Saying that out loud is so embarrassing!!!
We have been dating for 5 years, living together for 4. She's my best friend, we do everything together and I never resent a moment of the time we spend. We've. Oh freaking yes, you should leave the relationship. If he is not sure after 5 years, he will never be sure. Do not waste your time. You already. Lessons We Learned from 5 Years of Dating. It's my pleasure to hand over this space today to Daisy from?Simplicity Relished. If you don't know her, make sure.
I love him so much but love myself more. Well with so many women nowadays that are so very picky and looking for Mr. Perfect which definitely has a lot to do with it today, especially when many women now want men with a lot of money. This is a really useful post. I have been going through the same thing for 7 years.OUR 5 YEAR DATING ANNIVERSARY
Promises that never took place. Him disappearing on me for weeks. Why on earth would someone non stop tell you to move in with them and at the same time within a couple of days say it was just a thought.
Over the years I have changed as a person. Its like I do not care anymore.
5 years dating
And I want to leave him, but it is hard. Why didnt he tell me from the beginning he was just fooling around. I mean we are both over Why must I put in all the effort all the time. Then suddenly he will make a joke about proposing and once again he will say oh it was merely a thought.
So now I have resorted telling him I will not move in with him anymore and no marriage as well.
We can't date forever. At least that's what I told my now husband on year five of our dating relationship. I was sure he was the one, I felt ready. My boyfriend and I have been together for 5 years and been living together for I actually posted here in June with the same question. There's no rulebook or strategy when it comes to dating someone and knowing the You could date for six years and feel too chill about making any sudden move 5. I'm kind of keeping my options open. I've been in a long.
He wants to stay single to see others behind my back, then go ahead. Still, I find it hard to walk away. And in the end women like us are mentally screwed. I have decided once this is done if it is ever going to get there, I do not want to date ever again. Well at least reading these, I dont feel so dumb. Others are in the same boat. He knows I want to get married and just goes silent when I try to talk about it. The most he says is, he just doesnt want to get married again.
Wont give a reason.
Hard to leave after so many years, what seem to be wasted years. I talk about moving, and he doesnt even suggest living together. I guess I know what I need to do, but its so hard. Why Marriage so freaking important to tell everyone they are committed to someone.
The love and loyalty you share with someone is 1st priority. But if it is important to one or both, then you need to respect that and recognize the importance. The thing is Mandy, women give. They put in financially eyc. They have their own homes too. So taking care of 2 households because he wont move in or let you move in is financially destructive for women. So is feeling used.
And once there is a break up, he is secure as she maintained a lot whereas she lost so much money especially if over And you cannot claim it back. I suggest to women ja, date him but pay only your share nothing else. You be amazed how many men then walk away.
I was very open in the beginning advising him I will like to be married again. I was previously married for 8 years and it ended. The interesting thing about this situation is he has three kids 4,7 and 25 by three different women.
I have a child of my own 13 and do not want anymore children. All of his relationships have been anywhere from years with no marriages.
Keep in mind this man is 48 and I am Just need some advice. Thank you so much for this article! I have bin with my man for almost 10 years … I have had to watch my friends and family one by one walk down the aisle… and it has caused me a great deal of pain.
We lived together for 5 years, and were together for 6 years. In summer I said: 6 months to think — lets get married or lets break up. One year after break up he wrote me letters, we talked… In spetember he proposed to our common friend and in he married her!!!
How long should you remain in a dating relationship without it I personally know several couples who dated for five years or more and finally. You’ve probably heard of couples who’ve been dating for years before marriage, and then it takes only one year of marriage to send them scrambling for divorce, citing “irreconcilable differences” as a reason. Then after the wedding, she notices that those traits she hated were. In the spirit of Valentine's Day, here are the top 5 things I've learned from 5 years of dating (these are not in any particular order).
We broke up a few years back due to disagreements of marriage and when. We got back together with a compromise but 3 years later still nothing. Reason being we need to be financially ready- meaning a house. We ended up moving for my job and getting close to buying a house, only to have him relocate for a promotion in his job.
What hurts is he has to think about it. Please help! Been waiting since year 3. He had me pick out a really affordable ring. We got pregnant which was fine at the time because we were getting engaged anyhow. It never happened. If I could go back I would have left when I found out. I feel all alone like a single mom except for finances. At baby shower I felt ridiculous without that ring and him being there.
At the babies birth I debated not having him there. I ended up giving the baby his last name. Huge mistake. Our son is almost two now. Since his birth I have no stopped asking him when when when.
He looks at me quietly. He insists we are getting married. Nothing ever happens. Last year his aunts embarrassed me putting me on he spot calling me his wife and asking when the wedding was. Our son was a few months then. And the year before I was there 7 months pregnant! Why is he even with me???
Wondering Why He Hasn’t Proposed Yet? Remember These 5 Things
Thousands of dollars. This would seem fine if A. I don't have time or money. Weddings are expensive and take up so much time to put together. It's like we've already lived together for over three years now and we're just trying to work hard at our own careers that we, or I at least, feel like a wedding right now would just be such a stressor on ourselves and our bank accounts.
I'm kind of keeping my options open. I've been in a long relationship with my girlfriend for close to three years now. I love her, don't get me wrong. But a part of me, a very small part, is kind of keeping my options open.
Like, I don't know for sure if she's the one and I don't want to get a divorce later on. If, in a few years from now, I'm percent sure she's the girl forever, I'll make it official. She's not into the idea of marriage.
It's weird with us because I'm all about getting married but my girlfriend is not about that at all. She's pretty beat up from her parent's recent divorce, so about a year into our relationship she made it clear that marriage is not on her cards and that I shouldn't even bother proposing. IDK, I haven't thought about it. Everyone asks me this question about when I'm going to propose.
The truth is, I don't know. I never think about it. Maybe if she tries to break up with me or give me a marriage ultimatum, I'll propose.
But until then, it just doesn't cross my mind ever, unless someone asks. We're still in an LDR. Hi there! I'm glad you made it to my page! I love talking to people and helping people with any sort of situation. I grew up surrounded by my family who all work in the medical field, and I enjoy educating people on womens health so if you have any questions feel free to ask away! I also love food, traveling, and a good mystery television show or movie! Skip to main content.

Just go with the flow Being in any long term relationship while being in college full time requires a lot of patience and compromise. All images courtesy of Unsplash.
