Ladies, these are the signs that your partner just isn't THE ONE for you.
So you have been with your partner for a few years now and it's getting pretty serious? You're both happy, finally getting ahead at work and his family absolutely adores you? So, why hasn't he asked you yet?
Now before any of the boys reading this get their boxers in a twist, of course there are plenty of legitimate reasons to wait to get married, but how do you know if it's never going to happen? Ladies, these are the signs that your partner might just be wasting your time.
1. He doesn't prioritise you
It goes without saying that guy time is important, but so are you. If he's constantly choosing his mates over you and cancelling that ever important date night for the next poker night, football game or drinks with the guys, it's pretty safe to say that he doesn't have his priorities in order.
2. He always says 'I', never 'we'
A few years down the track, you guys should pretty much come as a package deal. Whether it's a wedding, a work function or a weekend away, if he's only thinking of himself, he probably only ever will.
3. He doesn't take an interest in your life
We are well aware that every little work related whinge and whine aren't exactly riveting for your man, but if he never asks you how your day was, or listens when you speak, it's pretty clear that he just doesn't care.
4. He doesn't make an effort
We're not asking for a fairytale, but the little things he does for you are definitely indicative of his feelings. Does he ever bring home flowers just because, or offer to rub your feet after a bad day, or rearrange his day to just take you out for lunch?
If you answered yes, you know how one little gesture can make your whole week. If you're sitting there wishing he did, you definitely deserve a guy that will go that extra mile.
5. He's uncomfortable with commitment
Have you ever had that cringe-worthy conversation when your grandma innocently asks about grandkids or a friend jokes about your wedding and he instantly changes the subject or laughs it off? We're sorry to say but if he can't (or won't) talk about your future, there probably isn't going to be one.
As heartbreaking as break-ups can be, if these signs resonate with you as you read this article, he's probably not the one. Don't waste your time on a guy that doesn't treat you right. Every girl deserves to be treated like a princess – including you!
