It’s Valentine’s Day! Such a fabulous, (and popular) time to get engaged! For those of you wondering if this day of love will finally find him on bended knee, puttin’ a ring on it, here is our ultimate checklist of bride approved, sure signs that he is planning to propose.
1. Miserly Behavior
It’s Saturday night, and instead of heading out on the town, he suggests you both stay in to make dinner and watch an old favorite on Netflix; All the boys are off to Vegas for the weekend, but he opts out for no apparent reason. If you have been noticing a lot of this sort of behavior lately, then chances are good that your man is penny pinching for a sizable purchase!
2. Travel Agent Wannabe
He books a trip for the two of you, all on his own, without consulting you about any of the details. Mmmmmm, you can almost SMELL the diamonds in your future!
3. Your BFF’s New BFF
He had a lunch date with your best friend. He’s getting text messages from your sister. What was up that quick conversation stolen in private with your mom? These are all very good signs that he is doing his research on what kind of ring you want!
4. Bling Brain
He compliments the waitress on her engagement ring, or comments on the ridiculous size of the diamond your favorite celebrity is sporting. In the same way that you will see white cars everywhere when you happen to be in the market for one, this is a sure sign that he is shopping for your ring. He’s got bling on the brain!
5. Jewelry Thief
Hmmmm, you could swear you left that cute little ring you always wear right here in your jewelry box! Now it’s missing! Don’t panic just yet. It is probably because he has taken it to the jeweler to get your engagement ring properly sized!
6. Channeling Martha Stewart
He seems to genuinely enjoy attending your cousin’s wedding, and comments on their choice of wedding colors, cake, or first dance song.Normal men do not care about such things. He has YOUR wedding on his mind!
7. Google Goof Up
Is your man sneaky or smart enough to clear his Google search history, thus clearing his tracks of any evidence of ring shopping? Have you been sneaky or smart enough to check?
8. Digits Need Doing
He suggests you go get a manicure with the girls. He might even offer to pay. If this is regular behavior for your man, then WOW, you are a lucky girl! But if it’s out of character for him, then there may be some new finger bling in your future!
9. What A Weirdo!
He snatches his phone out of your sight when it rings. You walk into the room, and his lap top slams shut. He’s nervous, jittery, clumsy. If your fella is acting like a total fuitcake, cut him some slack. He’s probably just gearing up for one of the biggest moments of his life: Asking YOU to marry him!
If many of the items on this checklist have resonated with you, then let me be the first to congratulate you on your engagement! This is sure to be a Valentine’s Day you will always remember!
