Dating for years and hes not ready to get married
Now you need a crash course in deciphering dead languages because he just told you he is not ready for a serious relationship.
Well, sister, I have been there, and I am going to tell you what it really means when a guy says, “I am not ready for a serious relationship.” Most importantly, I am going to tell you what to do about it.
I don't see why money is an issue for him, especially since he owns two rental properties which are a source of income for him. If you are sure you want to get married, and want to start a family as a life-plan, it might be time to move on. I dated my husband forever - we were both in school, but we had a definite time plan - the spring we graduated was going to be the wedding.
So we were together 5 years before getting married, but there was always a timeframe we were working with.
We are looking to make a connection with someone who is on the same page as us.
Besides, even when he is ready, there is no guarantee you will be the girl he wants a relationship with.
It is safe to assume nine times out of 10, “I am not ready for a serious relationship,” is better translated as, “I am not ready for a serious relationship with you.” When a man finds a woman he is crazy about, he will want to take her off the market posthaste.
This gives you the option to back out before involving any pesky romantic feelings.
A good way to figure out if your dude falls into this category is to look at what he is doing.
Did he just experience a major life change, such as parenthood, a career or the dissolution of another serious relationship? Your guy may recognize that he is not in a position to give you what you deserve in a relationship. It does not make sense that a man who is not ready for a relationship is looking to date someone.
He told me that he was dating with the same intention. He told me that he is not ready right now and doesn't picture himself getting married for another 4-5 years.
He says that he loves me and that I am the love of his life, but there are many things he wants to accomplish before he gets married and he wants to make sure that he will be able to provide for wife and kids. I don't know if I should wait for him to become ready. He is an amazing man and he is everything I ever wanted in a husband.
