Signs He is Ready to Propose

Has your boyfriend been acting strange? Nervous energy, secretive meetings with friends and relatives and he suddenly gives off a different vibe. A safer, more secure vibe.

Ladies, your man may just be getting ready to propose. But just in case, for you to be doubly sure, here are 5 signs that show he is getting ready to make you his number one in life.

1: He starts to act nervous or needy for no discernible reason

The time of life when a guy is most nervous is either when he is asking a girl out on a date, or asking her to be with him for the rest of his life. Imagine how terrified he is that you might reject him. A man's greatest fear is of rejection. Inside, his guts are squirming, his mind is working overtime and he has to try to keep everything under wraps. Chances are he will begin to act weird because it is almost impossible for a guy to hold all this inside and yet act as if nothing is going on. The biggest thing to look out for is his change in attitude. He will likely put in extra effort to tell you how much he loves you, how he adores and appreciates you. He is hoping very much that you will reciprocate his feeling and it is his way of assuring himself that when he does pop the question, your answer is a resounding 'Yes!'

2: He starts to scrimp and save

Weddings are, to say the least, expensive. The location, paying the people who will bind the two of you in matrimony, guests, food, drinks, the cake, clothes, the car. The list goes on and on. The cost of this is guaranteed to burn your man's pocket away. The ring is possibly the most important part of the wedding and the average engagement ring can cost more than $4000. Ouch! If he suddenly starts acting like Scrooge Mcduck, you'll know something is up.

3: He no longer complains when you ask him to go to a wedding with you

We all have a general idea of how weddings are like, but there is nothing like some firsthand experience whereby we are actually taking in detail as opposed to just being there because your great aunt's second cousin's half brother decided to marry some girl he met at work. If your man begins to follow you to weddings and seems to be showing a great deal of interest in the proceedings, chances are he is planning one of his own.

4: Your family is suddenly his family

You're out with your family, and suddenly, so is he. He's never gone out with them before... But it continues. Shopping, barbecues, hell when your sister had a baby shower, he showed up with diapers and a pacifier for her new kid! Your parents are commenting on how wonderful it is that your boyfriend has suddenly taken an interest in spending quality time with you. What brought about the change?

5: He starts to act like a husband

Its dinnertime and he is slaving away in the kitchen cooking your favorite dishes and after dinner, he does all the washing! You find cleaning agents in his wardrobe that weren't there before and in the mornings after you're done washing up, you find that the bed is already made. Gone are the CDs filled with heavy metal music and in their place is Frank Sinatra and Michael Buble. What he is trying to show with this is that he is ready to handle a domestic style of life and is prepared to go the extra mile in the relationship. His old life is a thing of the past and he is ready to move on and become a more responsible and mature man.

Spotting these signs and knowing how to interpret them will save you a whole lot of confusion as to whether your boyfriend has gone off the deep end or not. If he exhibits these signs, it will save you a ton of trouble trying to get him to propose when he is not ready. Maybe you're not sure whether he is ready to move forward or not, but in any case, try not to give him a hard time when he is acting weird as all he might want is to propose & spend the rest of his life with you [:

Thanks Mac! Though I'm still kinda young, I'm trying to prepare myself for the future. Writing this has also helped me understand myself a little more and give me new perspective.
