6 Signs She Is Ready for You To Ask The Big Question

 

Making the decision to commit is hard—and oftentimes daunting. Maybe you think you have found the love of your life. You can see yourself spending the rest of your life with her. But does she feel the same way about you? Is she ready to make such a monumental decision? Deciding to pop the question is a huge step, and with it comes the fear that you’ll be rejected. And if she says no, you may ruin the whole relationship. Luckily, there are a few ways to tell if your partner is ready for an engagement ring. If she’s consistently doing any of the following, she might be ready for you to pop that life-changing question.

She thinks talks about your future together a lot

Including you in her future plans and talking about the two of you in terms of “us” and “we” are sure signs that your partner is thinking about the long-term outlook of your relationship. She might frequently ask you about your future plans and goals. And not just your personal goals, but objectives that the both of you can achieve together. Maybe she sees some neighbors moving to a larger house and asks you when the two of you are going to moving into a bigger house. These kinds of conversations are a sign that she is thinking a lot about your future together.

She gets excited and emotional about engagements and weddings

How does she react when her friends get engaged or married? A woman reacts differently to such events based on how she feels about long-term commitment and about her current relationship. When she is not ready for commitment, she might make comments about how her girlfriends are now “stuck,” and she might be reluctant to attend engagement parties or weddings. When she is ready for commitment, however, she will likely be really excited to attend the celebrations and might make comments indicating that she is ready to be in the soon-to-be-bride’s shoes.

She plans more family activities that include both of your families together

This is a dead giveaway. When two people marry, they don’t join just their lives—the two join their families. However, this assembly can be stressful for everyone involved, especially if the families don’t particularly get along. If she makes an effort to bring your two families together, smooth out the differences, and get the two families to like each other, she might be setting the stage for an engagement and marriage.

She thinks and talks about other married/engaged couples, and compares them to you two

Now we are getting to the more obvious signs. She has probably dropped subtle and indirect hints about other couples before, but you might have been oblivious to them. Be on the lookout for comments like “Oh, they have such a great marriage. I can’t wait for that.” They are clear indicators that she’s ready for a lifelong commitment.

She is highly interested in wedding dresses, engagement rings, and other symbols of weddings and engagements

When she goes to a wedding, does she ask you questions like “How do you think that wedding dress would look on me?” or “Do you think this is the right ring to go with that wedding dress and shoes?” Those are some very obvious signs that she cannot stop thinking about marrying you.

She asks you directly

If she is asking you “When are you going to marry me?” or “Why are you so afraid of commitment?” or similar questions, these are not only obvious hints; they are warning signs. She is likely running out of patience, and she is giving you an ultimatum. If you procrastinate, you may lose her. She is telling you that if you are not serious about your relationship with her, she will find someone who is.
