When Is He Going To Propose?

John Gray

Dear John-

My relationship with my boyfriend of 6 years now is like a fairy tale! I am 22 and he is 26. I know i am young, but we talk about marriage and kids in the future. He’s currently in law school and real estate, while I’m going to school and have a great full time job. All his friends are getting married or engaged (most of them are his age).

Is there a reason why he hasn’t proposed to me after 6 years?

Even though we are comfortable with each other, i haven’t touched that subject because i don’t want to scare him away.

Any advice on why he's holding back? And why men wait, or at least certain men...



Congratulations on your happiness, Bunnie. Enjoy it. It sounds like you have a great guy.

It also sounds like he just wants to get to a place in life where he feels he can provide for you. Law school is not easy and requires a great deal of time and energy. I am sure his work in real estate takes up even more of his time and energy. Add in your age and he probably feels that he has time before proposing to you. He might just want to get through law school before adding a ring to the mix.

Ultimately, it comes down to him believing he is capable of making you happy. Many men are so concerned about making a woman happy that they will often not want to be in a relationship if they think they cannot provide for her. So before he proposes, he needs to feel confident that he can provide for you and make you happy.

However, there are some things you can do to let him know he makes you happy and you are ready to get engaged, without actually telling him.

Grow in love,
