I'm 25 and have been with my boyfriend for 10.5 years. My boyfriend is 26.
Still no ring.
Is it because he doesn't love me enough?

You kind of have to decide for yourself how to react. If it were me, I wouldn't want to contaminate our relationship with an outside custom. But maybe in his case it's more a matter of being with you for as long as possible until you get fed up and leave him.
One radical departure would, if you really want him to marry you, is to propose to him. And if he says no, the leave him. If marriage is critical to you. Or you could just keep waiting and see where things go. After 10 years though, a ring seems dubious. Three years is about the longest it should typically take, although for some relationships, there is a wiser dynamic that doesn't fret over jewelry.0
