If he proposes. I'm not sure you understand how much soul-searching goes on in a man before he pops the question. There's a lot to consider, and a lot to lose.
-Do I really want to sacrifice my free time and independence for her?
-Am I willing to be exclusively with her, pretty much for the rest of my life?
-Am I willing to make the adjustments to my social lie, like lessen hanging out with my male friends?
Those are things that can't be easily answered. Plus, there's the horror of getting denied and all that. So once he actually asks, he's serious. Before then, it's anyone's guess.1
