my friend (she's 24) is dating a 46 year old man.. He goes to the bar alot to hang out with a guy friend from work.. he says that he loves her and they spend about 3 nights

together a week, I'm worried for her though. She gets depressed sometimes and feels

isolated. He hasn't even asked her to marry him and they've been dating for about 15

months. any suggestions for advice i may give her.

The fact that he hasn't proposed to her doesn't necessarily mean anything (DH and I were together over 3 years before he proposed!). Are there other signals he's giving off to her that he may not be serious about her? Does she feel isolated because of something he's doing (spending a few nights together each week sounds fairly reasonable), or is it more she thinks he should be spending more time with her?
