bax874 Posted August 27, 2011 Share Posted August 27, 2011 I have been dating my boyfriend for 10 years now. I really love him and I know he really loves me. We are always talking about when we get married what our wedding will be like and how many kids we want to have and how we want to raise them. So I know that he wants to have a future with me, but I have been waiting such a long time for him to propose and it feels like its never going to happen. Whenever we have "the talk" he tells me that he just isn't ready yet, and then asks me why I want to get engaged. The truth is that I love him and I am ready to start the next phase of our lives together, but then the other part is that all my friends and family members are getting engaged and married and I am jealous. They are all moving on in their lives and I feel like I have been stuck in the same spot ever since I graduated from college. I don't know what to do or say anymore. My cousin recently got engaged to a man that she has been dating for about 4 years now and while I am happy for her I am just so depressed. I think the part that kills me the most is the tag line that all my friends throw into their messages. "I'm engaged!!!!!! Now we just have to work on your boyfriend". Its the worst feeling ever when someone says that to me. I just don't know how to handle this anymore. Link to comment
