You might get a hint that your wedding proposal is coming soon


You both have been together for long enough, gone through all the motions, such that the next logical thing is for him to ask for your hand in marriage.

He’s caring, sensitive, and God-fearing. Deep in your heart you are sure he is the one. But he hasn’t proposed yet and you are starting to doubt his good intentions.

Perhaps he just wants to chop and clean mouth? Or maybe he is married? Could he be planning a wedding with someone else?

Well, fret no more, he just might be thinking about that same thing too!

Here are 4 signs that you’ll find helpful in knowing whether to be expectant of an engagement ring soon, or not.

Note that the presence of these signs is not conclusive evidence that the proposal ring will come soon or come at all because humans [especially men] are totally unpredictable.

However, there are chances that it'll come when you notice these 4 signs

He plans his future with you in it

More often than not, one sign you will get when your man is planning to propose is the way he refers to you both in the few months or weeks prior to the proposal.

If he’s speaking about his life plans with you directly in line, he's ready to commit to you for the long haul, and don't be too surprised if somewhere in the not-too-distant future, he goes down a knee and proposes.

He doesn't dismiss your hints

Sometimes, ladies drop little, coded information which point to an expectation building up in them.

So when you start dropping those hints about ring styles you love, he just smiles adoringly, or says stuff like “let’s see what happens” or “there’s nothing God cannot do” looks at you with adoration and not, "Not this nonsense again," he might be ready to buy you a sparkling gem of a ring.

He's somehow being secretive

If he starts to keep tiny little secrets from you about where he is or what he is doing, he just could be hunting for that ring that will make you happy. He just might.

His friends are getting hooked up

When you have been dating for quite a while, and all his friends are getting married, dear, you are most probably in line for a proposal.

Yeah, nothing is certain, and the fact that his friends are getting married does not mean that he is going to just whisk you off to the altar if he’s not really ready.

However, there’s a huge chance that if he keeps himself around married guys or have friends who are about to walk down the aisle, he will most likely be thinking about settling down with you, too, especially if you both have gotten to that point in your relationship where a proposal seems only the logical next step.
