If you’ve been dating your man for more than a year, you, your mother and everyone else around you are probably wondering when he’s going to propose. If you’re a typical girl, you are likely to have thought about marriage and kids at least once in your life Come on, you know it’s the truth. If you’ve been dating your man for more than a year, then you, your mother and everyone else around you are probably wondering when he’s going to propose.
As a matchmaker, I meet women all day long. I hear so many stories of women who say they wasted their time with Mr. Wrong. Sure, they have some great memories from the relationship, but they wish they could get those precious years back. If you don’t want this to happen to you, and you’ve been dating for more than a year, familiarise yourself with these nine tell-tale signs that your man is unlikely to put a ring on it:
1. He avoids weddings like the plague
When a guy isn’t squeamish about marriage, he’ll be comfortable attending weddings and he’ll want to you to come with him. If your man hates going to other people’s nuptials, that’s a good sign he isn’t ready for his own.
2. He doesn’t talk about getting married
If you bring up the topic of marriage and he changes the subject asap, marriage isn’t something he’s thought about. If your man has an aversion to the M-word, he’s subtly letting you know that marriage probably isn’t part of his plan in the foreseeable future. Likewise, when you’re with other people and the topic of marriage or children is brought up, pay attention to how your boyfriend reacts. Does he quickly change the subject (bad!), or does he say things like, “When I get married…” (good!)
3. He doesn’t plan
Is your boyfriend allergic to planning? Does he only make plans for the immediate or short-term future? If so, marriage isn’t likely to be a priority. He might be ready to make a date for this week or the weekend, but if he’s hesitant to make plans for six months from now, your future together may not be a sure thing in his mind.
