I am in the same situation! It is a horrible feeling. I tell myself everyday that I will not text or call him. But, by the end of the night, I do it anyway. At this point, I am telling myself that this is not the kind of relationship that I want to be in anyway. So, why am I waisting my time and energy even thinking about it.

You and I both deserve better. Be strong!! Hang in there and know that there is someone fabulous for you (and me) out there that will not leave us wondering were we stand.

That is so true...he should make time for you and be concerned. I don't feel like it should always be up to us as women to always be the one who calls and shows concern. If he's leaving you out of his him that you are not going to wait around and that there are plenty of men out there that will appreciate you :)

Did you meet online?

Your bf sounds so much like the guy I dated for 3 months.

Hi. I see you haven't been with him that long--just 3 months--yet he has told you he wants to marry you. It could be at first he was extremely impressed with you, but after knowing you better, he is having doubts. Considering that he hasn't had that much time with you to get to know you, it is not so ridiculous for him to have doubts. "Stringing you along" is more terminology I'd use in a longer relationship, not for

He loves you and wants to marry you after only dating for 3 months? I would be very careful about getting involved with someone who said to me after such a short time. I would say from the effort he seems to be putting into seeing you, he is just not that into you. A man that is into you would be in contact with you and spending more time you then he is.
