He keeps letting you believe that he will change, and he won’t let you go despite knowing that he is unable to give you the thing you desperately want (marriage).

my boyfriend have been dating year-70

I’m a 27-year-old female, and I’ve been with my 31 year old boyfriend for over five years now.

We have made a happy and loving life together, including sharing a home, sharing our finances, being closely involved with each other’s families, and we even have two cats and a puppy together.

This weekend we talked and cried, and ultimately decided to try to work through this.

But I am at a loss as to how to actually do that, because he has no idea why he’s not ready to get engaged now.

Soon after this he met my family little by little from my mom, sister, nephew and dad and any other family members.

We spent thanksgiving and Christmas together and everything.I met his mom and step dad and step sister, and also some more of his immediate family during this period.After I began to be around his family I fell in love with them and they took my son in as their own.He has been making great progress over the last six months, and though it has been difficult to delay our engagement, I truly felt it was all worth it to make sure we’re both in the right emotional place.Finally, he felt that he had “gotten there” emotionally, so last weekend he took me ring shopping, and we picked out a beautiful engagement ring! Well, instead of proposing, he absolutely shocked me by announcing that, though it would break his heart to do so, he thinks we have to split up because he’s still not ready to get engaged.When we first started out we were just dating, it was nothing serious.
