It sounds like he’s reluctant because he’s dealing with his own stuff and he wants to make sure that both of you are ready for a relationship.
Now, in the context of when I said it, the gist of the situation was the girl wanted more and the guy seemed comfortable where he was.I understand your concerns though – you don’t want to waste your time with a relationship that won’t work out, especially since you want to be a mother someday.I can’t really help you make the call on whether to stay or leave.It still raises the question of how long that will take, but it’s a much different situation than an apathetic guy passively seeing a girl with little effort or interest in the future of the relationship. Try your best to be rational and to avoid jumping to conclusions…Having a title sounds like it would be reassuring, but if you were forced to choose between having an amazing relationship I would say that it would be a good move for you to take a look at what your thoughts are on the matter. I say this because when you mentioned that you proposed leaving the relationship after he didn’t want to call you his girlfriend, it struck me as kind of an extreme, all-or-nothing type of response.I have been dating a man for about 5 months and everything is pretty good.He was married for 10 years and has been divorced for about 2. We go out often, I’ve been introduced to the family and he to mine, and he treats me like I’m his girlfriend.But I believe that things can change as time goes on.I can’t guarantee it in your situation specifically, but generally speaking things can work out as long as the guy is working through his issues.It sounds to me like he wants to have a good relationship – he talks about the future, he introduced you to his family, he treats you like a girlfriend.From what you said, it doesn’t sound like he’s trying to avoid commitment so that he can see other women.
