Hey Shannon! Relationship Question for Feb. 13, 2014

"Hey Shannon, I have been with my girlfriend for a little over a year. I know she wants me to propose and with Valentine’s Day coming up I think she is expecting a ring. She's been dropping not-so-subtle hints since Christmas. I love her, but I am just not ready to take that next step. I don't want to disappoint her and I don't want to fight about it. I can see us getting married down the road but I want to make sure I am in my career and financially ready for that kind of commitment. How can I make her understand where I am coming from? Or is it time to buck up and buy a ring?"
