That men are not always the best at spotting the nuances of human interaction is not exactly news. If this were not the case then no woman in the history of women would have ever shed a tear after receiving the wrong response to the question, “Does my butt look big in these jeans?” The point? There are ways you can tell it’s time to get engaged without ever actually being told. If there’s no ring on her finger yet, but she wishes that there was, she may be dropping hints that you aren’t picking up – subtle ones and not-so-subtle ones. For instance:
When she talks about her future, you’re in it.
She has broached the topic of buying a house together.
She has talked about having kids with you.
She calls your mom just to chat.
She brings up marriage frequently in conversation.
She gets overly-sentimental at weddings.
There are five bridal magazines laid out on her coffee table.
You’re reading this blog because she sent you the link.
There’s a big white dress in her closet.
The other day she asked you, “When are we getting married?”
Her dad came to you with his permission to marry her.
