A single woman in her late twenties or early thirties may find herself looking to find a husband sooner rather than later.With her self-esteem on the line or her biological clock ticking in her ears, she may be on a one-year timeline, meaning that after one year of dating, she’s expecting a proposal of marriage.
One thing to look for is that he shares the same level of what psychologists call “conventional thinking”: If you’re looking for a man who is likely to do traditional things like buy a ring, ask your father for your hand, propose marriage and set a wedding date relatively soon after the engagement, then understand that you’re looking for a man who is clear, organized and conventional.

If the man you’ve started dating isn’t clear and forthcoming about wanting an exclusive relationship leading to marriage, or seems to have trouble even defining when he’s asking you for a date, it could spell trouble for the pace and timing of the relationship.
In my next blog, we’ll discuss what a woman can do to ensure her new romantic interest sees his future with before she becomes emotionally invested.
And we’re not even close to getting engaged or arranging our parents to meet (eeek).
But we kissed at the end of our first date and (Mom close your eyes) my boyfriend was the one who was all gentlemanly and holding back by our second date.
