I’ve been going steady with this man for six years. We see each other every night. He says he loves me, and I know I love him, but he never mentions marriage. Do you think he’s going out with me just for what he can get?
When you’ve known, loved, and have been dating someone for six years, things can get serious very fast. You two love eachother, it’s obvious, but also you have to realize marriage is a big step. Some people wait a while to get married, even longer then six years. I understand your worrying, you have a valid reason to worry. Put your trust in him, he may want to wait till the right moment to propose. When a guy wants to propose they don’t want to mess up, they want it to be perfect. He may be surprising you, you never know. However I do believe you shouldn’t let this worry you, if you feel like he’s just using you for what he can get, then talk to him. Ask him if he’s ever thought about marriage, if it’s something he plans on sharing with you. You two have known eachother for six years, and you both love eachother. I have high hopes that everything will be fine, don’t stress sweetheart. No matter what happens, don’t through those six years away. That’s a long time full of memories, happiness, joy, and most importantly, love. Keep your head held high and don’t doubt your relationship. Talk to him about it, you have six years wrapped up in him, don’t let those six years get away.
