So my gf and I started dating senior year in HS and continued through/after college until now. We have taken time off one time before, but that was while we were in school. Anyway, the point is, we had gotten to the point where marriage was the only step forward for us, but we weren't ready for that for a number of reasons, so we ended up breaking up. I love her and I know she loves me, but I think she's hurt I didn't want to get engaged as early as she did. I don't think we're ready to get married, if we are meant to get married at all, but I can't stand to not be with her. WTF do I do?
