IF you ask us, there’s nothing more exciting than the early stages of a relationship – you know, when you’re thinking about them constantly and counting down the minutes until you’re reunited.
So why would you want to go and ruin that with a big scary discussion about the future?

But while most couples end up having that awkward chat maybe a few months in, one woman was left devastated after her ex strung her along for YEARS.
Earlier this week, TikTok user Lauren explained how she’d been in a relationship with her ex for three-and-a-half years when she broached the subject of marriage.
Although the social media star put her heart on the line and thought he was The One, the bloke sent her world crashing down with a particularly brutal text.
In a viral video that’s racked up more than 775,000 views, Lauren shared a screenshot of the absolutely savage message which effectively ended their relationship.
In response to Lauren’s question, her boyfriend replied: “I don’t see us getting married.”
She then used an audio clip saying: “Okay… this is going to hurt like a mother-f***er”.
Trying to see the funny side of things, Lauren captioned the video: “Saw that conversation going differently in my head…”
While one viewer said the conversation would make them drop over a stone in a week, Lauren admitted: “It definitely shattered me at the time.”
Unsurprisingly, Lauren’s heartbreaking video struck a chord with hundreds of viewers.
One replied: “Why do men continue to waste our time ?!?!??!? I don’t get it.”
Another added: “I don’t understand how it takes someone 3.5 years to realise the person their dating isn’t the one for them.”
“I’m sorry babes,” a third wrote. “It sucks to say but it’s better than getting married and having to pay for a divorce.”
Meanwhile, a fourth reassured her: “He did you a favour, your husband is looking for you.”
