With Valentine's Day less than a week away, love is definitely in the air. And if you're waiting to tie the knot with your special someone and don't know what's holding them back, here's what you need to know.

Our friends at Daily Mail shared the six reasons their relationship experts think he hasn't gotten down on one knee yet.

    Desperation doesn't turn him on

    Nagging and begging him is a HUGE turn off. That's probably the fastest way to get your partner to turn and run.

    It's not him, it's you

    There is a reason he fell in love with you right? Well, maybe you should ask yourself if you're the still that person.

    It's not you, it's him

    Guys can be pretty intimidated by commitment. Just give him time to come around.

    It's not you or him

    It could be marriage itself. If either of your parents are divorced, maybe marriage in general has left a bad taste in both of your mouths.

    He's more sensitive than you realize

    He could be 100% down to marry you. But there is always that 'what if' in the back of his head. What if she says no? What if I get hurt?

    He has tried this before...

    If he was in a previous long-term relationship and it didn't work out, he could still have a lot of baggage.
