At the same time, open communication about marriage is the best way to get a feel for his views on it and when he might actually be ready for it. One way NOT to get him to propose:  Repeatedly bringing up marriage in a snarky, sarcastic or back-handed way will not encourage him to bring up the subject. If you feel like you have to pull some tricks out of your wedding veil to get your man to propose, chances are he’s not the one. I think when a man or woman decide to start dating they should make clear to their partners what they are looking for. Enter your info below so I can send you 3 secret training videos that'll help you get the man you want!
Smart, successful women make 3 huge mistakes that absolutely kill their chances with the alpha males who are looking for committed relationships. Now, if this plan doesn’t net you a proposal within the next week, or if he somehow annuls the marriage you conducted “against his will” (no it wasn’t, because he subconsciously wants to be married, or he wouldn’t have dated you for a year and a half), then just dump your idiot boyfriend and find another guy at your best friend’s wedding. At Dating with Dignity we call this “leaking.” When a woman “leaks” without being direct, it can actually push a man away. If he thinks you should never disagree on anything or argue EVER, this is a red flag that he’s not going to be ready to propose anytime soon. As long as both parties have realistic expectations of how a relationship works, you’re on the right path to marriage.
And you’re welcome to try making “engagement chicken” in the hopes he will propose, but our Dating with Dignity advice is to skip the chicken and go for communication. Make it contingent on a proposal immediately after climax and a written contract to change the proposal story to one involving a beach at sunset and your Labradoodle with a ring box tied to his outfit. The Dating with Dignity Guide to Getting Engaged and are wondering if there are any steps you can take to get him to go to the next step, you’ve come to the right place. Most men are on their own timeline and internally need to make darn sure they’re ready before popping the question.
Make sure you can articulate why it’s important to you in detail; “just because it is” won’t cut it!
It would be best to bring it up in an open and honest discussion and articulate what you want for your future, asking him what he sees for both of you. But that's not enough to push him over the edge, according to clinical psychologist Alon Gratch, PhD, author of If Men Could Talk. You want to spend the rest of your life with him, but he just hasn’t gotten down on one knee yet.

Tell him when you’re engaged, you will be too busy being happy and planning your wedding to ever cry again. Remember, life is not a romantic comedy or reality TV show, and most likely your proposal will not look like a scene from The Bachelor or The Bachelorette.
Just tell him that you want him to be in your life, but if he can't make a decision in the next couple of months, you'll have to move on. Also, you will be super-happy and never be mad at him for not texting or for vomiting on your rug. Probably just show up and go along with it, like he does when you buy tickets to the ballet so you guys can be cultured and not just drink all the time now that you’re technically in your mid-20s. Also, he’ll realize you’re teetering on the edge of emotional and mental collapse and he’ll feel bad enough to propose. But a lot of men are afraid- or should I say petrified- of the thought of marriage, and would rather avoid it altogether. You need to make sure you know him well enough to be able to spend the rest of your life with him.
After all, if you find out something you absolutely despise later on in the marriage, it could be grounds for divorce. But now, he realizes that this is as good as it gets, though it took him several relationships to finally understand that.Having unrealistic expectations makes it impossible for a man to develop a close bond.
If you’re both on the young side, it might be best to wait it out a bit longer to make sure there’s no problems. Perhaps there was a traumatic event in one of your lives which would halt you from giving 100 percent to the wedding and marriage. If your man is floundering careerwise or struggling to make ends meet, it might be in your interest to bide your time and wait for him to become ready.
This is not only scary to him, but is also a big turn off as you may come across as a needy gal. Don’t talk about your perfect wedding, don’t talk about when you want to get married, and most importantly don’t ask him when he is going to propose.
But more important, with everyone around him getting more serious about their relationships, he's more likely to reflect on what he wants in life. He wants to be the man and make that huge decision on his own, so don’t pressure him! However, if you do want to say at least one thing about your wedding dreams, let it be something in regards to your dream wedding ring. A lot of men halt their proposals for the simple fact that they don’t know what kind of ring to get their lady.

Subtle hints are the best and it also gives him the confidence to ask for your hand in marriage.
That would be like proposing to his best friend, his mom, or whatever else he may think of you as. This means you need to cut down on the nagging or controlling nature you might have, and let him take the reigns.
This simply means that he feels he is the strong, protective man he is, and you are there for him no matter what. 6. You need to make sure that you are that loyal, encouraging gal he’s always dreamed of, but be careful not to go overboard and act as a mother towards him.7.
Which to me is just a nice way of saying gaining weight, wearing less makeup, and throwing your hair up in a ponytail every chance you get.
If you want to keep him intrigued and enticed for many, many years to come, you need to keep things interesting and always look your best.
You are always by his side no matter what, constantly giving him the compliments and encouragement he needs- I mean, you even helped him get that huge promotion at work! He could have some evident reason he hasn’t asked you to marry him yet, or he might just be waiting for the perfect time. Marriage is talked about alot and our families bring it up all the time but he says financially he’s not ready to buy a ring and have the wedding I deserve. Hope my situation and story helps some of you girls to be a little more patient and make sure your both completely ready for a long term commitment. Plus, getting married would not change your life terribly much right now–if you cannot afford a wedding or a ring, you would have to wait for a house and children anyhow. It takes a lifetime to get to know someone, and I agree with you that more time before marriage is generally better.
He ssys he would marry me but he never makes the move the other night he said the idea scares him cuz of his last relationships. Often, people will date for a couple of years before they propose because it helps them to really know the person before they make a commitment. With so many marriages ending in divorce, I would rather make sure that my relationship is strong enough to last before getting married.
