Jessica Simpson is worried her boyfriend will never propose.
The singer-and-actress has been dating American football quarterback Tony Romo for around 16 months, and is becoming increasingly frustrated at his unwillingness to commit.
A source claims Jessica said: "I know Tony loves me, but I don't know if he'll ever propose."
Jessica, 28, was convinced Tony, also 28, would pop the question on Valentine's Day (14.02.09) and was left devastated when he failed to do so.
A source said: "Jessica was really hoping she was going to get an engagement ring. She wanted one for Christmas, then she thought maybe New Year's Eve (31.12.08). Her last hope was that Tony would propose on Valentine's Day - but he didn't."
Jessica was not happy. He just wasn't picking up on the fact that she was starting to lose her patience.
The star was also said to be furious after Tony took her for a meal at exclusive New York restaurant The Waverly Inn but spent much of the evening texting on his phone.
A witness said: "Jessica was not happy. He just wasn't picking up on the fact that she was starting to lose her patience."
Jessica has been discussing her relationship woes with her 24-year-old sister Ashlee - who has three-month-old son Bronx Mowgli with her husband Pete Wentz - and her friends, who are also concerned Tony will never make her his wife.
A source told America's OK! magazine: "Ashlee has always been the more realistic, the more practical of the two sisters. And Ashlee knows how much her sister wants to be married and have a baby of her own. But as wonderful as Tony is, he is not the marrying kind - probably not for years."
