So I may have caught a little wedding fever with so many friends and cousins getting married lately, but are these signs that my manfriend is thinking about a proposal?
1)Playing with the ring I wear on my right hand and asking questions about the stones and how light the metal is.
2)In the past year he’s become a huge proponent of weddings, saying, everytime one is brought up, even around his friends, how much fun they are.
3)When I mentioned a friend wanted her boyfriend to ask her father for her hand before proposing, he asked if he should ask my dad, and said he thought my dad would appreciate it.
I know I’m going to marry this man eventually, and whether its sooner or later doesn’t really matter to me, but it’s exciting to think about it. So what do you think ladies, should I be prepping for something here or is this just par for the course?

A lot of people would say that yes, those are signs. But my SO talks like your SO, and I’m still not engaged (we’ve been dating for 3.5 years). Take it with a grain of salt, otherwise you’ll drive yourself crazy, lol. I mean, if you notice large chunks of money missing from his bank account, or find a jewelery store business card, then ya, I’d get excited. But so far it just sounds like talk, and actions speak louder than words.

I’d imagine that just like you, he knows you’ll end up married eventually. But I wouldn’t read into ANYTHING as a ‘sign’ until he’s literally proposing. You’ll only drive yourself nuts, you know?

Why not just ask him what’s on his mind? I don’t understand why women pretend like they aren’t wanting it or waiting for it! It’s a marriage – essentially a decision both people have equal part in. You should talk about it.

Yep I agree with GwenvonD
