I'M READY FOR THE NEXT STEP BUT SHE ISN'T

Dear Willie D:

My girlfriend and I have been together for three years, and I'm ready for the next step in our relationship. I want to marry her, but every time I talk about long-term commitment she changes the subject and says stuff like, "Let's just live in the moment" and "Anything can happen." I'm not satisfied with just dating. I'm 32 years old; she's 31, and neither of us have kids.

I thought the idea of being in a committed relationship was to get married and build a future together, but she seems to be on a different page. I love her a lot, but I'm starting to feel like I'm wasting my time. What in the hell does she mean by, "Anything can happen?"
