Boyfriend wants to marry me but doesn't seem excited. Why?

He wants to marry me cause he loves me and asked if I wanted to get married. Weve only been together for a year but I told him I wanted to wait a year before getting engaged. I dont understand why, but he wants to get married sooner.

Although when I show him wedding dresses, his face doesn't light up nor does he seem interested. The first time I showed him something online he fell back asleep. Second time he just says "yeah" and third time I sent it over text and he just likes my text.

🙁 I dont understand. He wants to marry me but doesn't seem excited.

  • It's a big risk for a guy. For the woman? Not so much.

    And being married isn't about the ceremony, but that's what women are keyed on.

    You're learning the difference between men and women - this is one of them.

    Don't be in a hurry. And the amount of money you spend on the wedding day is in direct proportion to the likelihood the marriage will fail - the more the more likely.

    • She’s not in hurry , she wants to wait. He is the one who wanted to marry after just a year and asked her.

    • The money you spend on a wedding the greater chance it will fail. This is because women lose sight of what's really important - for many, the ceremony is WAY more important that her husband to be. He becomes ancillary. And adjunct to it all.

      And he should be excited. I'd like to know more about why you think he's not. If he doesn't show excitement about shopping for dresses, don't be surprised. It's ONE day. It's a WAY more bigger deal for the woman. Trust me on this.

      A guy isn't interested in marrying a woman unless HE IS. I would not read a lot more into it that. Women do this with EVERYTHING. Everything has a hidden meaning.

    • *... The more money you spend...

  • Then do not marry him yet. Why marry him if you are happy still engaged? Just tell him you want to wait another year or so til you know for sure.

  • He is probably aware of the risks involved. Lot of risks for the man, very little for the woman.

    • What part is risky?

    • Everything from spending a lot of a money on a wedding that will most likely end in a failed marriage to losing everything in a divorce and a million other things in-between.

    • Thats not risky for a woman? I dont want want to be divorced yo

      That why I told him i wanted to wait another 1-2 years. He could get tired of me

  • He want YOU, you want all the GLITZ and GLAM! Think of it that way. Girls plan their wedding YEARS in advance! Guys probably don't start "planning it" until their fiance starts actually planning it! <3

  • Maybe he's more into marrying you and not the whole process of wedding plans and stuff.
