I Can't Believe She Did ThisJun 6th, 2008 | Author: admin | Category: Fly Letters
Dear Fly Guy,
I asked my girlfriend of six years to marry me, and she said no. When I asked why, she simply said that she wasn’t ready. I’m so confused by this. How much time does she really needs to fully commit to me??? What are your thoughts Fly Guy? Do I need to start thinking about Plan B?

Dear Dazed and Confused,
First of all, let me say that I’m sorry you had to endure the experience of your proposal being turned down. Asking someone to marry you takes a lot of courage, so I can only imagine the wide range of emotions that you are currently experiencing. However, her answer may be just what you needed to finally turn the page, and start a new chapter in your life. By saying no, she sent a clear cut signal that even after six years, she still isn’t convinced that you are the one for her. Before I offer my perspective, I’d like for you to answer the following questions:
Did it take six years to discover the truth about Milli Vanilli? No.
Did it take six years to uncover Ben Affleck’s lack of true acting talent? No.
Did it take six years to determine that George Bush was a really bad president? Hell No.
What I’m trying to say is this: Six years is more than enough time to size a person up, and make your determinations about them. So stop allowing her to string you along in a relationship that is obviously not going to progress past this point. If you do, then you’ll probably be writing me five years from now, telling me how she still won’t marry you after ELEVEN years. If marriage is what you want, then she may not be the one for you. It may be time to make a change. I hope this helps.
