Why he hasn't proposed to you yet

23 June 2015, 11:33 Winnie Mwirikia

Nairobi - If you had your heart a little broken these past few months because you thought he was going to get on one knee but didn't ... oops!

So, when is it going to be your turn? Don't freak out; your time is coming.

There are many reasons why you are in a seemingly perfect relationship with a man who isn't taking it to the next level.

Here are some:

1. Influence

If none of your bae’s friends is married, he might not want to be the first to quit bachelorhood. If he has mostly married friends, they are likely to encourage him to get married.

2. Financial stability

A diamond ring comes with a price tag, and an expensive one for that matter. Probably he is taking time to save upto buy you a worthy ring or plan the proposal. Most guys want to be financially settled before starting a family - at least have a house and maybe a car.

3. He is a bit scared

It takes boldness for a man to propose-marriage is not a walk in the park even if he knows that his proposal will be met with a definite "yes! He imagines that you are to be his only woman forever and ever and ever: the woman he would grow old and grey with - for better for worse. There might be that fear of commitment but eventually, he has to man up and pop up the question.

4. You are not his type!

Sounds harsh, right? This bitter pill is very hard to swallow but let us face the truth; some guys will string a girl along forever and ever till she figures out that she needs to move on. They have no plans of getting married to you and are just enjoying the comfort zone. How long are you planning to stay? Wake up and smell the coffee - it is time to move on and stop clinging on that relationship!
