Dear Queenie,

  My girlfriend and I have been going together for a couple of months and I want us to start living together and think about getting engaged, but she doesn’t seem to be very enthusiastic about the idea. She says we should wait a couple of more months and then talk about it again. That’s a long time to wait and not even be sure anything will happen.

  Queenie, how can I get her to start moving along?—Impatient

 

Dear Impatient,

  There is a very good reason for the old saying “Marry in haste, repent at leisure” or in your case “Move in together in haste …”. You get the idea.

  Do not press your girlfriend to do anything she is not ready for. That would be begging for an ending you might not like.
