"Then, in the same week, I’m dealing with another friend who’s tapping her foot, waiting, shaking her udders in his face. ”At the one year mark, if he doesn’t ask me to move in, I’m moving out of us.” I hate this. I hate when women are forced into manipulation mode to get their needs met. I guess I really hate when two people aren’t at the same place at the same time, especially when my friend is left wanting more. I get angry for her because I’ve been there. And it feels horrible. She deserves to be with a guy who’s falling over himself to be with her, to hold her hand in public, to kiss her like he means it. I hate that she wants more than he does. I don’t want that for my friend. When you want to be married, and he doesn’t move the relationship forward, doesn’t mention moving in, when can you just end things without feeling regret? Can you walk away without feeling like a failure after a year of dating? My friends have been going through this. And it makes me a little angry."
