He Doesn’t Want to Marry Me
Dear ASK REAL GUYS: My boyfriend and I are both 23 and have been dating for a little over four years. We recently spoke about our future together and he said that he doesn’t want to break up, but that right now he can’t imagine getting married. He’s mostly scared of only sleeping with one person for the rest of his life. I’m positive that he’s never cheated on me, and I know he loves me. I just don’t understand why he is so afraid if we have been together for a long time.
Matt Landsberg: His sexual encounters are probably limited given your age and time together, so it’s a reasonable thing for him to think about. I wouldn’t let it consume you, as this is just one of the things people consider when thinking about long-term commitments. Women can be similar in this regard as well.
