Being a man, first and foremost, and being something of a serial monogamist, I'd say that a guy will know if you're the one for him fairly quickly, if he's ready to get married at all. Now this doesn't apply in 100% of all cases, obviously, since everyone is different, but in my conversations with other men, guys like that comfort zone of a good girlfriend, but could go without getting married for a really long time, and then they'll realize you're not the one for that step. Then they'll be in "search and marry" mode, perhaps without realizing it, and for the longest time before this I never even wanted to get married.Originally posted by Thalia
I have had three relationships that all ended after about 2 years. None of these men were ready to get married. Now that I am older and will date men older than those three (the oldest of which was 23), how long should I wait before I try to get on the same page about where the relationship is headed, if it could lead to marriage? I don't want to waste years and years with men I am never going to marry.
So, especially for the men, at what point does a guy start knowing that he is open to marriage or that he knows he has no plans for that at all? (of course evey guy is different, just want some general advice)
