Are you ready to propose and share your life with your partner?
Are the words engagement, wedding, and marriage on your mind? Before you ask her the big question, ask yourself these questions and see if you have the signs of a person who is ready to propose.
Today we focus on three questions to ask yourself.

#1 Your Friends and Family Accept your Choice
Your main squeeze shares car care tips with your dad and sends birthday cards to your grandma. If the people who know you best give your sweetheart two thumbs up, then that’s a green flag to pop the question. -E-Harmony
Is your significant other friends with your friends? Do they feel like an extension of your family? Chances are your mom, sibling, and/or best friend have nudged you once or twice before and hinted that you should put a ring on it, because its so glaringly obvious to your loved ones that you two belong together. When the people you love most get along, you’re looking ready for proposing.
#2 You’re Thinking Long Term
You start brown bagging your lunch and put the savings into a “rainy day” bank account. When picking out new furniture, you opt for the king-size bed so there’s room for two. You make long-term plans together, like booking a ski trip for next Valentine’s Day, because you assume you’ll still be a couple. -E-Harmony
You no longer think in terms of “I” and “me” but “us” and “we” – you don’t even think twice about checking off a plus one on a wedding invitation that’s months away. If this sounds like you, you are already thinking long term and have shed your single-guy-mentality for good. If you have gotten this down you are proposal material.
#3 You’d Elope
Do you want a wedding or do you want to be married? The event is fun, but it lasts only one day. Would you still want to spend the rest of your life together even if there were no dress, cake and Cha Cha Slide? If so, then your desire to get hitched is probably coming from a pure place. -E-Harmony
Isn’t it amazing to be in a relationship with someone you really love. You feel like you’re already ready to spend the rest of your life with this person. You can’t wait to be married, to wake up next to each other every morning, to share your life with your best friend. Does this sound like you? Congratulations, this is very important and you should considering proposing.
