  • I suppose when he is ready, but I wouldn't waste my life waiting.

  • I wish I knew!

  • Probably not. I know I won't change my view on commitment, why should I assume my partner would?

  • No! no way...(but that's just my opinion).

  • Someone very wise told me a long time ago that if a man (after you've started a steady permanent dating relationship) hasn't proposed to you within two years, the chances get dimmer and dimmer every year after and most times they never will. Hope this helps.

  • Anyone can change, but it has to be their idea, and they have to see a need to change...

  • Yes, when he meets the right woman who makes him want to commit to only her.

  • I've been married to a non-committal man for the last 22 years. After his first marriage ended, when he caught his wife in bed with their neighbor, he said he swore he'd never give his heart away again, or get married. And, for 10 years, he didn't. He said everytime he'd feel himself getting close, he'd drop the woman. But, 22 years ago, he and I met. He is 11 years older than me, and I was a 23 year old, with 2 little ones, and had just gotten separated from my 1st husband, and the last thing I was looking for was a relationship. But, after him not committing to anyone for 10 years, we had our 1st date on July 23, my divorce was final on October 11, and we got married on December 5th, and I have never once doubted his fidelity to me, I know I can trust him 100%, and he and I are happier and more in love today than we were then. When it's right, you know it.
