Dropping Hints To Your Partner That You’re Ready For Engagement

If you are ready for your partner to ask you the big question, then you might want to let them know. Some people like to leave it up to their partner and just wait to see how long it takes them to do it, whereas others like to let them know they are ready by dropping hints. If you are the latter kind of person here, then this article has been written especially for you. We’re going to be taking a look at some of the hints that you can drop to let them know you’re ready.

Leave Up Hints On The Computer

First, have you thought about leaving hints up on the computer? If you share a computer or laptop, you can go online and look at things wedding related, like a diamond jewelry blog to let them know what kind of ring you would like, and then leave it up. If they ask you about it, you can just say that you forgot to close it down and that you were just browsing. It’s likely that they won’t question you about it, but you will know that they have seen it and that’s all that matters.

If you do this a few times then it should start to register that it wasn’t an accident at all and that you are actively looking at all things wedding related. 

Talk About Your Engaged Friends

If you have engaged friends, then you can up the amount that you talk about them. Talk to your partner about the beautiful proposals that your friends have experienced, when they are thinking of getting married, show them photos if there are some and so much more. Of course, this doesn’t come across as too bold or too straightforward as you are talking about the people that you call friends, meaning that you are happy for them anyway.

Bring them up whenever you get a chance, and try to get your partner actively involved in the conversation as much as possible. You can then start saying things like ‘when I get engaged I would love…’

Watch Marriage TV Shows

Finally, you can start watching reality TV (which you might fall in love with so be careful) to do with weddings. There are so many shows right now relating to weddings, so it’s well worth looking into. Even if it doesn’t work as a hint, at least you will find something else that keeps you entertained other than the regular hobbies that you opt for. Could be a nice relaxing way to end the evening!

We hope that you have found this article helpful, and now see some of the ways that you can drop hints to your partner that you are ready for them to pop the question. The only thing that you have to be careful of is that you don’t want to push too hard and push them away. Be as subtle as you can, and if they are ready for the same step, they will pick up what you’re saying.
