“I can’t cope with losing her”

My girlfriend whom I live with and was prepared to propose to, cheated on me and left me. She’s older than me but decided she needed independence.

“Will he ever propose?!”

My boyfriend and I have been dating for 5 and a half years now (we are 23 years old), we have been living together for a year and do everything together. I have hinted a few times that I am ready to get engaged and he has agreed (even my family has been hinting).

But it feels like it is never going to happen. We get into fights about it all the time. I have expressed to him how I don’t want to be an “old” bride and would love for my aging grandparents to still be around when we tie the knot. He doesn’t seem to be interested and I’m over bringing it up as we just fight.

Do you think he will ever propose or am I just going to be someone’s 40-year-old girlfriend?
