Another Dead End?
After years of dating around casually, I finally found a man who makes me happy. He is fascinating, kind, sexy, and non-judgmental, and he takes very good care of me. We are deeply in love, and we've talked very seriously about getting married.
I feel very ready to get married. I have a good job, my finances are in order, I've given myself time to gain life experience, etc. I've told him that, as soon as he proposes to me, I'll say yes. But it's been years and he hasn't proposed, and even though he says he wants to marry me eventually, he keeps telling me that it can't be soon because he's not making the kind of money he wants to be making, he has a lot of debt, and his credit is terrible.
I'm worried that this is never going to change. He keeps saying he's looking for a new job and that he's going to meet with my accountant about getting his finances in order, but it still hasn't happened. Meanwhile, my heart is breaking because I really think he's the one, but I don't know if I can wait around forever for him to get his act together.
I don't need a big flashy ring or a fancy wedding. All I want is for us to be together. But what if this is another dead end?
