I can’t see a good reason to be engaged for more than a few months or for as long as it takes to plan your perfect wedding. And by the way, the same applies to guys dating girls that won’t commit.
Unless the guy is in the middle of med school (or the equivalent), he shouldn’t need more than 6 months to at least make a to marry you in the near future. If you can’t get clarity by then, chances are extremely high that it will never happen.
You think you have been liberated but truth is you are still living in a mental prison as you keep thinking about the person and past memories.

Whatever you do, you will definitely be making progress every step along the way.
