I’m having a bad feeling about my relationship with my boyfriend, because he has refused to do the Needful

My boyfriend and I have been in a relationship for more than three years, and we have been living together for two. Last year, he started dropping hints about possibly proposing to me soon, and I was filled with excitement because we both knew from early on in our relationship that we wanted to spend our lives together.

During that time, he jokingly added a date and a ring emoji in his Instagram bio to play a prank on his friends. However, as time went by, no proposal happened. He then mentioned that he would propose when both of us completed our degrees, but even after we achieved that, nothing happened. He also hinted at proposing on my birthday, but it didn’t come to fruition.


Now, a year has passed since he first mentioned proposing, and some time ago, I couldn’t hold back my tears and confessed to him how I felt like a joke that was no longer funny.

He still had his bio “prank” in place, which served as a constant reminder of something I was excited about but wasn’t happening. I explained to him that it was disheartening for me. He understood my perspective, removed the bio, and assured me that he still wants to get married, but he didn’t think it had to happen immediately.


Now he’s hinting at proposing during the summer, but at this point, I am starting to question whether it is still something I truly want after having my hopes raised and then shattered multiple times.

I have discussed my feelings with him, and he seems to understand where I’m coming from. However, he also feels like I am pressuring him. Do you have any advice on how I can move forward from this situation?

    I don’t know how old you are, and if that has a bearing on why you obviously want it faster than he is ready to. Or perhaps you feel insecure in the relationship. But if you have none of the above, keep your dignity and stop this pouring yourself over him. You might rush him into marrying you when he isn’t set, and when life normal hiccups show up, he begins to see you as the devil who threw in the spanner into his vision of life. Many rushed into marriages get into problems later bc the of psychological transitioning deficit. Besides, living-in relationship b4 marriage has its Godly unapproved and human anaesthetic feelings-the latter due to familiarity-induced de-sensitization.
