The excuse can continue indefinitely no matter how life changes.Even if you've saved a chunk of money or have reached a milestone at work, the excuse can always be made that these are merely steps along the path to reaching that "perfect time" for marriage.Men feel there is nothing wrong with continuing to date since both of you are "having a good time." Many women are unaware of this dating element with men and end up staying too long in a relationship that is going nowhere.It is very important for a woman to know how the man she is dating feels and whether he will eventually step up and propose.
These aren’t women who have been dating for two months, but rather women who are in long-term relationships.
A man who enjoys your company and has fun with you will avoid rocking the boat to keep you around for as long as possible.
Even when he knows for sure he will never marry you, he will keep dating you until he finds the "right one." This may seem cruel to you, however, men in general look at dating very differently than women.
Of course, there are times when these long-term boyfriends do raise a valid concern or two that needs to be addressed before you can seriously consider spending a lifetime together.
The challenge is to identify when an excuse or two has turned into serial stalling.
