As we say goodbye to Christmas and welcome in the New Year we enter a time when nearly a quarter of all relationships break down. If, by the 23rd of January you’re still madly in love you may be considering popping the question by Valentines. If you’re not, she’s probably hoping you do but how can you spot the signs?Here are a few things to look out for:
Our Site is Bookmarked
If she’s been looking though our UK Hen Dos, whether it’s being a pop star for a day or indulging in a chocoholics dream, she’s thinking about the wedding bells. Before the question is popped it’s natural to focus on the Hen do rather than the big event, just in case it doesn’t go to plan.
She Wants to Watch Rom Coms
At first your girlfriend may be quite happy watching rom coms when you’re not around but if she’s getting ready for a wedding she’ll insist you watch them too. She’s hoping you’ll get a warm feeling deep down that will make you realise you’ve met the one, so be warned if you’re just there to eye up Cameron Diaz’ behind.
She’s Asking Stupid Questions
When a woman wants to know if a man is ready for commitment she’ll read magazines, take online quizzes and basically embrace anything that helps her find the answer. From the film “He’s Just Not that Into You” to asking you if you’d prefer a bungalow or an old folks home when turning 80, every little silly reference is primed to see if you’re committed. Tread carefully but try not to worry as once you do pop the question it will all be forgotten (even if you said you’d like to live out your remaining years in the Playboy mansion).
She’s Having Alone Time with Your Family
Even if your mum and girlfriend don’t see eye to eye, when she thinks you may be spending eternity together she’ll make one last effort to take on your family as her own. She’ll invite your mum for lunch, arrange shopping dates with your sister and accept all family invitations.
She’ll Make an Effort
Many women think that when men don’t pop the question it’s because they worry that as soon as they marry their girlfriend will turn into a slob. In a bid to show you that this won’t happen, your almost fiancé will start working out again, wearing new underwear and basically showing you how great your life will be if you married her. For many women this actually backfires as the bloke thinks, “If it’s this good now there’s no need to change a thing”.
She Pulls Out Grandma’s Ring
Of course, if she’s expecting a proposal she will have pointed out so many jewellery shop displays, you’ll find H Samuel on the PC every time you hit the internet and there’s probably a few jewellery catalogues knocking about. The most determined will bring out Grandma’s ring, this is to show you that you don’t have to spend a fortune on an engagement or wedding ring as it’s already bought and paid for.
If you’ve noticed any of these signs, you may want to relieve the stress a little by checking out our UK Stag Do’s, from paintballing to Lap Dancing, clubbing to beach beauties, you’ll see another advantage to popping that big question.
