I want my boyfriend to propose sooner. This is something that I see all the time in various online forums. Someone wants their boyfriend to propose and they ask for advice on things they can do to make their boyfriend propose more quickly. While you cannot make someone do something they don’t want to do, there are techniques to help speed the process along if your boyfriend really does want to marry you. Women that ask questions about what they can do to get their boyfriend to propose are in one of two scenarios. They have either been dating their boyfriend for a relatively short period of time and feel like he is the one, or they have been dating for a very long time and he still hasn’t proposed yet. We’re going to take a closer look at each of these scenarios.
If you have been dating your boyfriend for a few months and you feel like he really could be the perfect man for you, there are some things you can do that will help get him to propose sooner. Relationships are built on trust and respect. He should trust and respect you and you should make sure that you let him know that you trust and respect him. When a man trusts and respects you, he will feel comfortable talking to you and communicating with you. One thing you don’t want to do is allow him to get too comfortable, to the point where he is happy dating you forever and does not want to propose marriage. When the two of you communicate, you should make it clear that you are looking to get married someday and not just looking for a friend with benefits. If the two of you trust and respect each other, if you are in love, and if you communicate well and you know that each of you are looking forward to getting married and starting a family, it’s only a matter of time before he proposes.
The other scenario I mentioned above is one in which a woman is in a long-term relationship with a man who still has not proposed. I’ve seen countless posts in various forums from women saying that they have been dating their boyfriend for four or five years. The man knows that his girlfriend wants to get married but still hasn’t asked. Sometimes the couple has lived together for a couple of years but the man seems to be content maintaining the status quo i.e. living together but not getting married.
If that is your situation, communication is critical. You have to tell him how you feel. I would never recommend giving him an ultimatum because an ultimatum will either push him away or he will feel pressured to get married and resent you for it later. However, you must communicate your feelings. You have to tell him that you want to take your relationship to the next level. You want to get married, you want to start a family, and if you have been dating for five years and you don’t want to put things off any longer, you need to ask him how he is feeling. Ask him if he really does want to get married. Ask him if he wants to have children. If he says yes to these questions, ask him what his timeline is. A lot of women in their 20s would like to start having children before they turn 30 but if you are dating a man for several years, the clock is ticking.
Maybe your man is waiting until he gets that big promotion or feels more stable in his job. If you can communicate with your boyfriend and he can give you a good reason why he is waiting, you may want to stay in the relationship a little longer. However, if he gets annoyed when you bring up the subject or he can’t give you an answer to your questions, it’s possible that he doesn’t want to get married or start a family. If these are things that you want and he doesn’t want the same things, he may not be right for you and you may have to be willing to end the relationship and move on. If you want to get married and have children it’s very important that you are in a relationship with a man who wants the same things. If you are still in the early stages of a relationship, don’t let things go on for four or five years without talking about your future plans. If you are in a relationship that is several years old, you need to figure out what your boyfriend wants as soon as possible and see if the two of you are on the same page.
