It’s one of the great paradoxes in life that men are pretty easy to read except in the one matter when you really could use a hint — when he decides he wants to marry you. Fortunately, there are some clear signs there’s an engagement ring in your future if you know where to look and what to look for. Here are 10 hints that could mean your boyfriend is ready to pop the question and ask you to marry him.
You start hanging out with married couples
One thing guys don’t like is being around married couples without a wife of their own. So if you’re his other half for couples-related outings, especially with his married friends, that’s a good sign he’s going to propose soon.
He wants his family to get to know you better
One of the best signs that he’s looking to strengthen his relationship with you is that he invites you to his family gatherings. Birthdays, weddings, or family picnics — it doesn’t matter. If he wants his family to get to know you as he knows you, that’s a pretty good sign to you (and to them) that you’ll be walking down the aisle together soon.
