Ask a man what he wants he'll tell you what YOU want to hear. Men start off telling you how different you are JUST to turn around and treat you the same as the last chick. Another situation, another heartbreak, another frustrated cry of "why me!?" How many tears are you going to cry trying to figure out males, when the answer is clear: You aren't his top choice, you're a placeholder.
If a man is dragging his feet, then that's a form of rejection. This shouldn't make you try harder to make him see you as special, or to prove yourself worthy of his dusty ass. It should make you confront the reality of your relationship so you can evolve and do better the next time around. "G.L. why do so many men play games and waste out time?" Because immature men are about survival, not integrity!
In reality he can't be honest and say "I want to settle down with someone, but that someone isn't you." He can't say "I can see myself getting married, but not to you." In order to keep the peace, keep you on his roster, and keep you filled with hope, men choose to lie and too many women choose to believe in that lie. Not in Sparta!
Understand the game and stop being so blinded by potential! It doesn't matter if you just started dating and he has no reason to lie, he will STILL lie to fuck you. It doesn't matter if you're the mother of his child, he will STILL lie to keep you from making his life hell or putting him on child support. It doesn't matter if you're a ride or die woman that has shown him...
