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.
Take it from me, sometimes a guy can really love a woman and not be ready or in a position to have a relationship.
His ex still gives him a hard time, but he says that he has moved on. Last week I bought up the subject and the answer wasn’t what I expected.
He told me how great I was and that he loved what we have, but at this time, he didn’t have the capacity to commit to more.
I would bet there were assumptions that you made that upset you that very well might not be the case.
It is quite possible that if you talked with him calmly and rationally, it would put both of you at ease. it really depends on how easily each of you can have a calm, understanding discussion to let the other one know where you stand.
For all I know, he might have committed to his ex-wife and once he did, it was all downhill.
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.All I can say is (from what you’ve told me) is that he sounds like he probably had a rough time with his first marriage and wants to be extra careful this time around.Or maybe he believes that the dating dynamic works a lot better for him than the committed relationship dynamic at this point in time.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.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.He said that he expected me to pull back, but not cut it off completely.Then, he back peddled and said he prays daily for god to release some of the things in his life.
