Tired of playing the guessing game with your man? Here are eight signs that say he’s ready to go down on bended knee and pop the big question.
1. He introduces you to everyone he knows.
Almost everyone in his circle knows who you are and that you two are an item–his friends, family, and co-workers, everybody. Guys are usually careful about introducing their girl to the people they know. If he’s not ashamed to tell the world about you two, he’s a keeper.
2. He invites you to family gatherings.
You're always his plus one to family outings and special celebrations. Why would he let you get close to his family if he doesn’t want a full commitment with you?
3. He considers you a part of his team.
Some say that a man’s career is a big part of his identity. If he starts opening up to you about work, then you must be someone he sees as an equal and a person he can trust.
4. He starts talking about having children with you.
If he has no plans of marrying you, even the idea of having kids with you might be enough to scare him off. But if your man openly talks about his plans to have kids in the near future, then he might be popping the big question soon.
5. He has married friends.
Is he surrounded with guy friends who are already wearing a band? It could be a sign that he’s ready to take the risk as well. Maybe he’s already asking around for proposal ideas!
6. He asks for your opinion on critical decisions.
Whether it's about a big career opportunity or a major business investment, he always consults with you about it. This only means that he’s arranging his life around you and wants you to be part of his future.
7. He wants you two to move in together.
Have you ever seen your man browsing the internet for affordable units for two? Leaving his own pad (and freedom) can mean that he’s ready for the next step.
8. He hangs out with your family.
Not only is he close with your siblings, he also makes it a point to spend time getting to know your parents. When he's with your family, he's making an effort to bond with the people you are closest to.
