Can we make a list of possible signs that a proposal may come soon?
I realize this will be different for every guy/relationship, but for those who are engaged, was there anything that tipped you off beforehand?
I keep thinking he’ll do it soon, but I don’t want to get my hopes up if I’m totally off.

1) He puts a ring on your finger.
2) The words “will you marry me?”
Sorry, just teasing a little. But other than those things, it’s hard to say concretely if you are about to get proposed to or not. I don’t have any signs earlier than that because seriously who can know? Every guy is different!

I didn’t notice the signs at the time, but my guy was a little extra mushy the week leading up to the proposal.

My guy was pretty sweet right before he did it. Nothing I did got him upset- he was just extra sweet and started trying to do extra things for me like buying me a dress for our outing.

Planning any sort of trip thats all about the things you love. We went to Hershey Gardens to see the butterfly house and walked through all of the gardens. He proposed to me at the end of the day in the Rose garden 🙂

I have one that is probably going to apply only to me.
The Boyfriend or Best Friend and I have been talking about moving for a long time. Awhile back I told him that I didn’t want to get married if I didn’t have a job. Well, we are moving to a new city next week and I will be looking for work. Well, the other night he told me he may just propose if I don’t have a job. That he doesn’t really care. (It was him not caring in a sweet way. Not a disregard of my wishes.) I told him that was OK. So I’m thinking by the end of the year. 😀

I told my Boyfriend or Best Friend that I prefer to park in a garage, he cleaned out his garage this last weekend and is fixing the garage door. His mom also told him that she wanted my car in the garage- his ex can get a little nutty. So I hope this means something, but I try not to think about it.

@lostbee1234: When my Fiance proposed, we had been talking about plans, and where each of us fit into the other’s vision. It doesn’t usually come as a “total surprise” that your Fiance is contemplating marrying you. With any luck, you have good communication, and understand respective visions of the future.
With that said, I knew he was serious about me when he did the following:
- Began talking about OUR children
- During vacations (we didn’t live together until engagement, as per my rule) he commented about how well we worked together, and liked the “test” of us living together
- Began getting SERIOUS about his finances, and investments– especially over the long term. (Men are notoriously pressuring themselves to be good providers)
Pay attention to his language, and when he talks about the future. Are they more, “We will…” or “I will…” kinds of statements? Does he act especially more loving to you? Is he talking you up to friends and family?
The clincher for me was when he took me to various jewelry stores to look at rings with his parents. I knew a proposal was coming down the pike, but it was a nail biter, because he had the ring for WEEKS before he figured out a special way to propose.
Good luck to you. I remember how nerve wracking it is waiting for your special moment to pop up, but enjoy it when it happens. Everything becomes a whirl-wind after that. 🙂
