1. He won’t give you a straight answer
He changes the subject whenever marriage comes up. And if he does address it, he only talks about it in a jokey, snarky way. You really have no idea where he stands at all, which is a huge red flag in a relationship.
Common responses you get when you try to talk about it are: He needs more time … He needs things in the relationship to change … he needs things in his life to change … Why are you bringing this up now? ….Can we talk about this another time? …Everything is so great, why do you need to wreck it? …I’m stressed at work, I can’t talk about this right now, etc. etc.
