... if you feel like the relationship is going nowhere, why continue wasting your time?

I have been in this position before and I broke it off... Although it was hard it was the best decision I made and were both happier for it.

This.

I typed out a longer response but accidentally pressed "back" so it got deleted.

Anyway, the one piece of advice I really remember my dad giving is "never date anyone you can't see yourself marrying"... I listened, and have now been happily (I don't say that lightly) married for five and a half years.

I agree.

If marriage if something that's important to you and you can't see yourself being married to this person/don't want to marry this person, why waste your time? Happiness is what's most important and if you feel you would be happier in a different situation, don't say in the current one.

For me if I saw no future with the relationship I would end it.

Do you have issues in your relationship? I'm asking myself the same question. Been with SO almost 6 years but if he asked me to marry him idk what I'd say. We have a 3 year old. He's wonderful and we are very compatible, I'm just not attracted to him the way I used to be.

Yes I don't look at him like before our relationship feels different i don't look at him as that appeal i feel i just want company and he helps with the bills but more the company.

Maybe you should break it off. Otherwise you would just be wasting his and your time. No offense, but I don't think I've seen anyone be with someone they didn't want to eventually get married to, unless they're together and both agree that they don't want to marry each other (Brad Pitt Angelina Jolie). If your heart is somewhere else, then you should already know what to do. Good luck !

If you know you want to be married but don't see him as a potential husband then yes break it off. Like pp said you'd just be wasting both of your time otherwise
