Getting engaged is a very exciting time, and a natural progression when two people have been in love for a while. A lot of ladies are hoping it will happen but are very surprised when their partner does propose. Here’re some signs you can watch out for to know he’s about to pop that all important question.
It’s your anniversary
If your anniversary is around the corner, there’s a chance that he will pop the question. When we are celebrating an anniversary, it makes us think back on the relationship, and where we are seeing it going in the future! Therefore, he might have decided, if it’s been a considerable amount of time, that it’s time to get hitched. As this survey says, 20% of men think that the day they met their partner is the best time to get engaged. So if he mentions he thinks you should go back to the place you met for your anniversary, you should be prepared to be surprised!
Starts asking you about the future
If your partner is asking you where you see the relationship going in the future, it could mean he is thinking about proposing to you. If he doesn’t generally talk about your relationship and his feelings, then you know something is up. As this article explains, he may suddenly ask about your five-year plan. He will ask when you want to buy a property, and when you are thinking of having children. He may even mention about weddings, and talk about what he would like for your big day. If this does occur, a ring could be on your finger very soon!
He’s spending more time with your friends and family
It’s nice if your partner wants to spend time with your family and friends, but there might be a more meaningful reason he’s doing it. If he’s planning to propose, he’s likely trying to get to know them all better as he will soon be part of the family. He will want to make the best impression possible, as he might ask your father for his permission to marry you. You may be invited round to his families more, so they can know you better too. When planning your big day, he may ask your friends for help and ideas of what you will love. If they act nervous around you, this is a big sign that they know about the proposal!
Hasn’t got as much money recently
If he seems to be suggesting some nights in rather than going out, he could have made a big purchase recently. Diamond engagement rings are a costly purchase, so he may have used some of his savings to buy the stunning ring. Therefore, he won’t be able to afford to go out as much with his friends. If he also suggests not booking a big holiday this year or next, it might be due to wanting to save for the wedding!
If he’s gone more quiet and reserved, then there is also a chance he is about to pop the question. And once he does propose, you can start planning your big day!
