My boyfriend have been dating 8 years sheridan smith dating
(Even though I've told him I find this very hurtful).
We always had a long running joke that if he didn't propose before our tenth anniversary I would propose to him.
A responsible couple talks these sort of BIG life decisions out long before a proposal happens.
And in your mind that might "kill" the romance or your dream idea of how you'd be proposed to but this is reality girlfriend and it's better to be a responsible adult then a once upon a time princess.
Tell him that you want to be married, and what the timeline looks like for you, and ask him what it looks like for him. You don’t have to rush to get married, wait it out and tell him you’re okay with a long engagement (if you are).
And I totally understand why you'd want marriage. If you really love someone you would want to make sure they are secured and protected in the event of something happening to you. It took my husband 9 years to propose and we waited 3 years to get married.
We've lived together for 9 of those years, we've both got good jobs, a home, great sex life, we enjoy each others company, my only complaint is that he still hasn't proposed.
I really hate that Hollywood has pushed this idea that proposals are this magical thing that men spring on their girlfriends in a romantic surprise when in reality a proposal shouldn't happen unless both individuals have sat down and discussed their mutual desire to be married.
From the sound of it he doesn't want to be married which leads me to believe that you either need to find satisfaction in the way things are now or come to terms with the possibility of your relationship ending.
It's 2018, plenty of couples don't get married now a days.
" And he normally makes a joke or pulls a jokey panicked face and the subject is quickly changed. This was the first time he'd half admitted being ready for marriage and I got my hopes up.
About two years ago, after the 29th February passed (the day when traditionally a woman can propose to a man) he told me that he had thought I was going to propose to him. About six months later we went on holiday and on an evening out, over some drinks, he admits he had been planning to propose on this holiday but had fallen ill with the flu before we went and didn't manage to get out to buy a ring, but Christmas and New year's are coming up so probably then (his exact words).
