Waiting For Him to Pop the Question: Is it Worth the Wait?
Being an intelligent young woman of class and morale, I am one of many, if not millions of women, stuck in the push-and-pull position of trying to change someone else for my own benefit. In Utah years, being twenty-four years old and unmarried almost gives me a spinster status. To make matters worse, I have been dating the same devil-may care, yet truly lovable guy for the last four years, who adorably struggles his way towards being the man of my dreams, and also happens to be nearing the brink of turning twenty-five years old.
Now, If I lived in New York, my complaints would be almost laughable as everyone takes more than enough time weighing their options, and stretching out their wistful, carefree twenties, well into their thirties.

You can now see how this would cause intense anxiety and stress at my late-bloomer boyfriend's expense, and I'm sure many of you feeling this have suffered much longer, hoping, praying and wishing, for Call of Duty to be taken off the market, or better yet, a ban to make beer illegal. The daunting question has always plagued our minds, will this become the story of our lives? A life of endlessly cleaning up empty beer cans and listening to the offensive drone of 'guy talk' filling up our brains with nonsensical rambling.
On the other hand, will your man randomly wake up one day and decide to trade his mind-numbing existence for one with meaningful substance and the family-man reality, hey, It's happened before, right? When you think of the few lucky women who tamed the beast and won, it feels hopelessly futile, and frankly, pretty exhausting. Admittedly, it comes down to a gamble, where the frustration of the unknown will drive you to either fold and walk away, or place your bid on the helpless, infantile man, who you can't seem to shake as an amazing, prospective husband.Continued on the next page
