My boyfriend said he fell in love with me at first sight, and loves and adores me to this day. The other day we were talking and he said that he doesn't see us getting married.. I'm not understanding why he's dating me. He doesn't wanna talk about it anymore and he says he didn't mean it like that. I mean.. if we're still together in 2-3 years, I kinda expect it to turn into a marriage. He also said I'm all he wants in a woman and I'd make a great wife. What did he mean? Why would he date a girl he doesn't see marrying? Isn't that the point of dating.. to find a wife? I'm just confused and he doesn't want to talk about it anymore.. should I just drop it and move on?

I think you should talk to him about this. Sounds to me like he is confused himself.
He said you couldn't see himself marrying you, but that you would make a great wife. That to me sounds like he isn't planning on marrying you, maybe didn't want to say it but it slipped and then tried to save himself by trying to pass you a compliment?
That's really all I can think of. But maybe he's just not ready for marriage yet?
Either way, I think you need clarification. It's okay to have this conversation with him. He should be clear when he says stuff like that.
Sometimes people date people because they like them. Even if they don't see a e with the person. But if this is not the kind of relationship you want, then you need to tell him.
Perhaps he's not sure he is ready to marry now, but might be ok with it in 2-3 years?1
