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.

We are both perfectly content with our relationship. Marriage is not a priority for me. Who says you have to be married to be committed? Who says you have to marry at all? At our 3rd year he proposed to me and then 4 months later he called the wedding off. You are sooo right! I think someone knows if it will work out barring any major mental issues within 1. If a man or woman is unable to commit at this point, it is time to let them go. They are trash, and KNOW they are trash.
Most people I know who are married, said they could tell within 6 months if this was the right person or not. Relationships are built on trust, respect, and shared life goals and interests.

HOW TO BE FRIENDS WITH YOUR EX - Breakup After 7 Years - 1 Year Later
No commitment, no security, no future! I kick myself all the time. Thanks for your honest and insightful post. His primary relationship is with his older sister, and his future plans include family, but not me.
If I really want a commitment, then I need to make my timeline clear and stick to it. I am curious as to what you finally ended up doing and what your situation is now.
We truly love each other and vaguely talk of spending our lives together, however things have reached a point where they are comfortable for him and I do not see much of an effort on his part to take things to the next level. It seems that there is always something that deviates his focus from moving forward.
He has his business, an older sister who spends a couple of days a every week at his place, his hobbies and activities that keep him busy, and his dog who is like his second child.
He thinks that the longer we wait, the better our chance of staying together forever. I just wish I had some idea of when he thinks he will be ready.
I know that he is the type of person who would be fine without someone special in his life. He has made that clear a few times. Like I said, he has a fulfilling life even without me.
However, I would very much like someone to share my life with me more than just on the weekends. Thank you. Hi Meg I am in the same position that you are I have been in a 5 year realtionship with a man who says he wants to commit but here I am still waiting.

Hope this reaches you and let me know how you are doing! Hi i am in a similar situation. I have two young sons who adore him.
