When it comes to proposals, there are a lot of things that you need to think about. One of the most important things to consider is whether your partner actually wants you to propose. While this may seem like a given in this day and age, it’s important that you and your partner are on the same page. 

So, before you go shopping for an engagement ring, and plan a big proposal, you need to where your partner stands. If you don’t want to make your intentions obvious by asking your partner outright, keep an eye out for the following signs. 

They often talk about the Future

If your partner keeps bringing up the future and mentioning marriage, this is a sign they want you to propose. Don’t be alarmed by these conversations. They are actually a key part of a healthy relationship. 

It’s important that you’re both open and honest during these conversations so you can ensure that you both feel the same way. 

They want a family with you

For a lot of people, marriage means family. If your partner mentions that they want a family, more specifically a family with you, then it’s likely they want you to propose to them. 

If you share their feelings and want to start a family with them in the near future, this may be your sign to pop the question. 

They talk about other engaged couples

Seeing other people do things tends to raise questions about whether you want the same things for yourself. This will happen a lot to your partner if their friends start to get engaged. 

If they start bringing up these engagements, how they feel about the rings, and what they would want for their own wedding/engagement, this is your sign that it’s time to pop the question. 

They play social media games with you

If your partner spends a lot of time on social media, especially TikTok, they’ve likely seen the “which would I rather” games. These are often games like “which number wedding dress would I choose” or “which of the following rings would I like”. 

If you find that your partner is playing these games with you, it’s likely that they want to propose in the near future. 

They tell you

This is the most obvious hint that you’ll receive. Again, this isn’t a red flag. If your partner tells you that they want you to propose, this is actually an amazing compliment and a green light to start planning! 

Final Thoughts

If you’re ever uncertain if your partner wants to propose, keep an eye out for these signs. If you start seeing them more often, it’s highly likely that your partner wants you to get down on one knee!
