Signs He Bought An Engagement Ring Already Or Thinking of Buying
- He starts asking you more specific questions about your future together
If he does this or makes comments like: I would love to spend the rest of my life with you, I know you’ll make a great mum, or I can’t imagine my life without you in it. Then it’s quite clear that he has most likely considered popping the question.
- He pays attention to details at other people’s weddings
If your partner suddenly develops an interest in weddings and starts asking you questions like: What did you think about the venue, did you like their wedding theme? Then chances are that he is likely thinking about a wedding of his own, with you.
- He develops a sudden interest in your jewelry
It’s obvious he needs your finger size to get a perfect ring. So, he will start showing interest in your jewelry all of a sudden. In addition, he’ll start asking about your preferences in jewelry. That could be a signs he’s about to pop the question- will you marry me?
He may ask your friend if he can’t get the answer from you. Besides, a ring is a major investment and he wouldn’t want to mess it up by getting the wrong size.
- He no longer spends as much
If you notice his shopping habits have changed and he no longer buys whatever he wants whenever he wants it, then he may just be saving up with the intent of surprising you. When a man is planning and ready to settle down, he makes plans and saves not just for the ring, but your future family
- He makes an official introduction to his parents, family, and friends
This is different from just a casual “meet my parents”. A man who is not ready to commit will hardly think of showing you off to his friends and family. Although this does not always mean that a proposal is imminent, the good news is that he is very serious about you and has considered marriage.
- He makes efforts to get closer to your family
As long as your partner has made up his mind to propose, he will make efforts to get close to your family, friends, and the people you love especially your dad.
- He has become suddenly secretive without reason
Don’t fret. Secrecy is not all that bad if he’s there are other signs indicating he’s about to propose. If you notice that your man does not want you to be part of certain things he does when you’re together, then he may be doing some research on that perfect ring or making hotel reservations for the surprise engagement and obviously does not want you to find out about it.
Maybe that’s one of the signs he’s hiding a proposal.
- You stumbled on a ring
This could be the biggest sign. If you saw a ring you’ve never seen before, hidden somewhere either when you were arranging his closet or doing laundry, then you’ve most likely ruined the surprise. That’s one of the surest signs he bought an engagement ring already and he’s planning a surprise proposal.
Never mind, just pretend like you didn’t see it. (Smiles)
- He suddenly starts acting super nervous around you
Women have a natural intuition and know when there is a change in their man’s behavior or demeanor.
If you observe that your boyfriend starts to act more nervous around you, give him some slack; he’s probably panicked and thinking about popping the question soon.
- He hides his cell phone from you
I do know that this could be bad but, I hope you both trust each other enough not to bother about stuff like this. He’s most likely hiding from you, texts with your mom, sister, or best friend, notifications for what he’s paid for (like a ring), or his proposed romantic location.
So, relax. He may just doesn’t want to ruin the surprise that he’s planning.
- He plans a surprise romantic getaway
This is possibly the biggest sign that he’s going to propose. A romantic weekend or reservation, probably to a special place that holds a lot of meaning to both of you? Then, it’s pretty much been decided. That’s one of the obvious marriage proposal sign.
- He is receiving a lot of texts and calls from family and friends
If he suddenly starts receiving a lot of calls and texts from family and friends, both his and yours, then it’s possible he’s making plans for the engagement surprise party, especially if you don’t have a birthday or anniversary coming up.
