Don’t you hate wondering why he hasn’t popped the big question? I can think of lots of reasons why a guy would be hesitant about asking for a woman’s hand in marriage. Here are some suggestions as to why he might be dragging his feet. The following list contains 8 reasons he has not proposed to you. Of course, the easiest way to find out is to simply ask him what the hold up is!
8. He Can’t Make up His Mind
I know plenty of guys that want to get married, but they also want to stay single. It’s like they are having in inner war with themselves. One day they are gung-ho about marriage and the next day they are perfectly happy with the way things already are. You just might have a fickle man on your hands.
7. He’s Scared out of His Wits
Guys always act all tough and macho, but there are plenty of things that they are scared of. Marriage happens to be one of these things. I’m not saying all guys are terrified of marriage. There are a select few who relish the idea of getting married to the woman of their dreams. Others tend to break into cold sweats at the thought of getting married.
6. He’s Changed His Mind, but Doesn’t Know How to Tell You
In my opinion, this is one of the most heartbreaking reasons of all. I’ve been fortunate enough to not have to experience this reason first-hand, but I’ve felt empathy for the ladies in movies who are on the receiving end of this type of news.
5. He’s Seeing Someone else
I guess it would be better that he decided not to propose because he’s started seeing someone else rather than propose and continue to cheat on you. Either way, it’s a crappy scenario. I sincerely hope this never is the case in any relationship, but I know it does happen.
4. He’s Unsure as to How He Should Go about It
I’ve had a few guy friends who would drag their feet because they weren’t sure how to actually pop the question. They wanted to, but didn’t want to come across as a dork when they finally came around to asking. I remember telling one of them that I didn’t think the words ‘Will you marry me’ could ever come out wrong. I didn’t see the big deal, but then again, I’ve never been faced with the task of asking someone to marry me. I guess it can be a complicated situation for some men.
3. He’s Been Listening to His Friends Too Much
Friends generally mean well. However, there are times in life when they need to be completely ignored on certain subjects. If each friend is giving your man suggestions as to how to pop the marriage question, he might be more confused than he ever was in the beginning.
2. He’s Content with the Way Things Are Right Now
You just might have a guy who’s completely happy with how your relationship is currently going. He might be so pleased with the way you two are that he doesn’t see any reason to alter the course with talk of marriage. While you might see marriage as the next step in your relationship, he might see it as a side-step that will mess the great thing you two have right now.
1. He’s Waiting for the Perfect Moment
Some guys are true romantics when it comes to popping the big question. The timing has to be completely perfect. To the romantic type of guy, there’s only one chance to get it right, so he’s waiting until he’s positive that he’s come across the right moment to ask you to marry him. The best part about being in a relationship with a romantic is the amazing display he’s capable of when he finally does ask you to marry him.
Out of all these 8 reasons he has not proposed to you, only number 1 is one I wouldn’t be upset with. If you are waiting for your man to ask you to marry him, then I hope it’s because he’s coming up with the perfect time to ask you. Have you heard of any other reasons why a guy decides to drag his feet when it comes to asking a woman to marry him?
