Dating before relationship
If not, you may find yourself like Jennifer Aniston’s character in Bruce Almighty (she repeats this long-suffering role in “He’s Just not that Into You”) whose boyfriend needs literal divine intervention from God to get him to propose.
In real life God doesn’t make such obvious house calls.
You are not a used car salesman trying to get rid of shoddy goods.
It might hurt to be alone, but it’s better for you in the long run than being in an unhappy marriage.

They have seemingly great mates who have jobs and call their moms and open doors to restaurants- but haven’t yet popped the question.
