There’s no crystal ball that can tell you when your boyfriend is going to pop the question.  It stinks, but it’s reality.  Some men will get down on one knee in six months while others don’t ever want to do it.  You can date someone for three months and feel like they’re the one, and you could date someone for six years and still be unsure. You’ve been together for a very long time, you know he’s serious about you, and you’re serious about him.  So why hasn’t he popped the question?  Why are all your friends getting married while your relationship seems to be going nowhere?

If you’re wondering why he has yet to pop the question, our Dallas matchmakers have the answers you’re looking for.  Read on and see if any of these reasons hit home.

1. He got too comfortable in the relationship.

Maybe he is a little too comfortable with your dating situation.  Do you have a house together?  Do you cook, clean, and do his laundry?  Are you doing all the wifey duties without having the title of a real wife?  Unfortunately, sometimes living with a man before getting married can delay the marriage proposal.  Maybe he’s gotten too comfortable with the arrangement you have right now, so “Why buy the cow when he can milk it for free?”

If he is already being treated like a husband, then he’s definitely comfortable—maybe too comfortable.  Have a talk with him and tell him your desires to get married.  It won’t be easy to bring it up, but this will tell you where he stands.

2. You’re obsessing too much about getting married.

Maybe Facebook is to blame for putting it in your face every day that all your friends are getting married, buying houses, and having children.  Maybe you attend every bridal expo that comes to Dallas.  Maybe you already did the dress shopping and cake tasting without a marriage proposal.  Maybe you’re on Pinterest a little too much and obsessing over “everything” weddings.  Or maybe you subscribe to every bridal magazine.

If you can’t seem to go a day without talking about your perfect wedding or badgering him about why he hasn’t proposed, then you might be to blame for why he’s holding out on you.  He might just want to do it at his own time without feeling so much pressure from you.  Men don’t like to be bullied, pestered, or nagged, so keep that in mind the next time you feel the need to talk about your ideal wedding.  If he’s thinking about it, he’ll come around.

3. Your relationship is on the rocks.

Are you constantly fighting with your boyfriend?  Does it feel like you can’t go a day without a major fight?  If your relationship is on the rocks, then you can’t expect your boyfriend to come riding in on a white horse and sweep you off your feet with an expensive engagement ring.  In order for your boyfriend to get down on one knee, your relationship needs to be solid.  Your constant fights are definitely influencing him on this major life decision.  Are you fighting over finances?  Then it’s time to get your finances in order?  Are you fighting about family drama?  Then fix the problem.  Are you fighting about bad habits?  Then change them.  If you want your guy to propose, you need to work out the relationship issues and show him that you’re marriage material.

4. He wants to test the waters.

Unfortunately, some men don’t realize they have a good thing going until they lose it.  If you suspect that your guy wants to play the field a little more, we feel for you.  If for whatever reason your boyfriend doesn’t see your true worth, why would you want to force him to marry you?  It won’t work.  You have to decide whether it’s worth staying or not.  If he truly loves you, then he needs to wake up and realize what you’re worth.  You don’t want to waste your time with someone who doesn’t value and respect you.

These are four possible reasons why your boyfriend hasn’t proposed yet.  If you realize that it’s not going to work with him and would like to meet marriage-minded men in Dallas, contact our Dallas matchmakers and let us help you find your Prince Charming.  To reserve your FREE (90-minute) matchmaking consultation, simply fill out the confidential form at the top of the page today!
