It stings reading this feature, but if you’re looking it up, well, it’s not looking too good for you. Here are all the signs he will never marry you.
I know so many friends who spend their time waiting for their guy to “be ready.” Years and years go by and then suddenly the guy breaks up with them, saying that they don’t think she’s the one.
This isn’t some unheard story, this is really common. So, instead of hanging around, waiting for that day to come, it’s better to pull out before then.
It’s not easy, especially when you love him. But, if you notice that he’s not fully invested into the relationship like you are, then you need to re-evaluate what you’re doing. Men can hang around for years without feeling the need to seriously commit to you, which is fine, if that’s what you agreed upon.
Sometimes it’s hard to see the signs he will never marry you. Some of these signs are obvious, and some are a bit less so. But even if you keep nodding “yes” to yourself as you read this, don’t worry. Someone does want to spend the rest of their life with you, it’s just not him.
#1 All his exes are “crazy.” He’s had a couple serious relationships in his past, which is a good sign for most women. But when you ask him why they all ended, he claims that they were all crazy. All three of them were apparently completely nuts.
Maybe, in reality, they wanted something more serious, and he bailed out. That’s a huge red flag that he has commitment issues and won’t be settling down anytime soon. I know you think you’re different from all the others, but you’re not. [Read: 22 warning signs of a really bad boyfriend]
#2 You’re laying down some hard hints. Guys aren’t stupid, they know what the hints are. And if you’ve been baking him a cake every week that says “where’s the ring” written on it, well, he gets the hint. You shouldn’t have to make obvious hints for him to propose to you. If he wants to marry you, he would do it on his own.
#3 He keeps pushing the wedding further and further. Maybe he proposed, but when you talk about the wedding, he keeps delaying it. That’s one of the huge signs he will never marry you.
#4 “He’s waiting for the right time.” It’s not the right time. He and his mother had a fight last week and who knows how long that’ll take to get over. He’s just swamped with work. It’s just not the right time. Listen, if someone really wants something, they’ll do it no matter the obstacles. It’s never going to be the right time for him.
#5 You haven’t met his family. Does he have brothers or sisters? You wouldn’t know because he doesn’t talk about them nor have you met them. Not a good sign, really, not a good sign.
If he really liked you, he would be showing you off to his family because he’s proud to have you by his side. Trust me on this, if he’s into you, he’ll be showing you off as if he won a Grammy.
#6 He acts very distant. You’ve noticed that he’s somewhat distant from you, almost as if he’s wanting to break up with you. Well, maybe you should get the hint and just do it for him. This guy is obviously immature and not willing to talk about his feelings with you. [Read: All the signs your boyfriend is no longer in love with you]
#7 He downplays your relationship in public. Maybe he’ll hold your hand in public… maybe. When he introduces you, he says only your name and not your relation to him. He doesn’t want people to know where you two stand because that would mean he’s off the market.
#8 There’s no you in his future. He doesn’t actually plan anything in advance with you, there are no summer holidays together or plans of moving in. Actually, there’s no you in his future.
#9 He doesn’t care to meet your friends or family. He hasn’t met your friends or family and he’s not pushing to. Well, if you were interested in marrying someone, wouldn’t you want to know who their family and friends are? Bingo! So, if he isn’t willing to get know your friends and family, he’s not really interested in you.
#10 He doesn’t focus on pleasing you in bed. He doesn’t actually care if you orgasm or not. What his main concern is, is that he orgasms. Now, if you orgasm, that happens to just be a bonus. In other words, he doesn’t give a shit about you. You’re a tool for you. If he really loved you, he would be concerned about your sexual experiences with him.
#11 You can’t be seen on his social media. He has Facebook and Instagram, but you can’t be seen on any of his social media. That’s not a good sign. Actually, it’s one of the signs he will never marry you.
If he was really into you, he wouldn’t be finding you like you’re a troll. He’d be flaunting you all over his Facebook and Instagram. But if this isn’t the case, he doesn’t want other people, mainly other women, to know that he’s taken. [Read: Backburner babe – 14 signs you’re just his backup lover]
#12 He’s full of “I love you’s” right away. When you first met him, he threw the phrase, “I love you” out to you like it was nothing. He’s not serious. It’s easy to say I love you to someone, but it’s much harder when you actually mean it. He won’t take this relationship seriously if he’s claiming his feelings to you on your first date.
#13 The discussion of marriage has him sweating. You can’t even bring up the topic of someone else’s marriage without him becoming anxious and short-tempered. If that’s his reaction, he’s not ready.
#14 He’s indecisive. He can’t even decide what color shoes to wear, so what makes you think he can decide whether or not he wants to marry you. Marriage isn’t a pair of shoes, it’s a serious commitment you’re making to someone. So, if he can’t decide for himself, he won’t make a serious move like this.
#15 You’re a “maybe.” When you ask him, it’s a maybe. To his mother, he says he’ll maybe marry you. Listen, if you’re his maybe, ditch him. Who wants to walk down the aisle knowing that you were his maybe? You want someone to grab you and say, “this is my girl.” You’re no one’s maybe.

#16 It’s all excuses. When you bring up the topic of marriage, he already has twenty different answers available. Maybe he wants a better job, or he just got a new job and needs time to adjust.
Maybe his friend is getting married now, so he wants to wait until that’s finished. The point is, there’s an excuse for everything with him. It’s because it’s one of the signs he will never marry you.
Now that you know the signs he will never marry you, you’ll be able to take a step back and look into your relationship. Is he doing these things? If so, then maybe it’s time to sit down with him and see what you both want in life.
