Wedding bells

i have depression and anxiety and I know sometimes it can be quite bad. My boyfriend puts up with a lot from me. Lots of our friends are married/engaged/having babies. I mentioned getting engaged to him (the next logical step in our relationship) and he pint blank refused to even consider it. He said he wasn’t happy and “why would you want to marry someone when you’re not happy?” It was absolutely devastating I feel like such a failure. I know I’m a lot to deal with but I thought that he at least loved me. Now I’m not so sure. He says he does but how can you love someone you aren’t even happy to be around? I feel like he’s just too comfortable and settled so we’re in this stagnant relationship.

well, it's a two way street in a relationship, so don't only blame yourself, if they are not happy, your not happy, then its time to take steps for you to get happy.....may not be with him....find happiness doing something else. Sure we have a few extra things on the table, but I believe there is someone out there for everyone. If I can find someone when I was turning 60, anyone can. Been with them for 7 years now.
