Are You More Than Ready to Be Married?
Wondering if your guy is ready to take the leap and ask for your hand? Reading his signs is surprisingly simple. Take this quick quiz, and get a feel for when and if he’s going to pop the question!
1. Have you talked about marriage?
a. Absolutely. We know we want to marry each other and have spoken about it in detail.
b. Sort of. We’ve both said it’s something we want, but not necessarily in any meaningful way/in reference to each other!
c. Yes. He said he didn’t ever want to marry… but that was a long time ago!
d. Does going to someone else’s wedding count?
2. Are you in a committed relationship?
b. Yes. I’m just not sure he’s ready for this last big step.
c. I think so. But he did get annoyed when I asked for a drawer.
d. He says he loves me but… define committed.
3. How much time do you spend together?
a. We do a lot of things together, but also make sure to spend adequate time with our friends and alone sometimes.
b. Every single second when we’re not at work!
c. We get together once or twice a week.
d. However much he wants.
4. Does he include you in future plans?
a. Regularly! He even mentions saving for our retirements!
b. Nothing specific, but yes, there’s mention of next Fall, that sort of thing.
c. Does Friday count?
d. Not that I can remember… but I do, all the time!
5. Are you putting pressure on him to propose?
a. No way. Our timelines are in synch, and I wouldn’t press him one second before he’s ready.
b. I’ve mentioned that I’d like to get married soon, but not a lot or with any pressing deadlines.
c. Yes. He just needs to put a ring on it already, dammit!
d. Does incessant hinting count?
Odds are, a proposal is forthcoming. You’ve talked about marriage, seem genuinely committed to each other and have a healthy attitude toward relationships in general. Maintain this level of maturity in your approach toward each other and yours will be a healthy, happy partnership!
You probably aren’t getting a proposal anytime soon, but that doesn’t mean it won’t happen eventually. In the meantime, try to focus less on getting hitched and more on being present in the moment. There’s a carefree feeling in a pre-engaged relationship—a spontaneity that may not exist later on when you are married. So enjoy that excitement, and use this time to get to know each other fully, before either of you makes a decision you might regret!
“Once we change our mindset to: ‘I do deserve a great relationship, because I am a good person, and I have love to give’ that’s putting them on a better road to manifesting what they want.” – Psychic Peyton ext. 5312
Relax and lay off. You’re settling for the attention he’s willing to give or the commitment he finds acceptable. When neither of those things meets your wants and needs, that means you’re probably in the wrong relationship. And even if he is okay for Mr. Right Now (we all need practice relationships after all), he is not your Mr. Right. It could change, but not because you force it… so stop trying.
“Let’s look at you, what we need to do to move forward, by letting go of that past hurt… Because we’ve got to get you out of that cycle.” – Psychic Peyton ext. 5312
Put the Tiffany’s catalog down and back away from the male. This guy isn’t interested in being your boyfriend on any meaningful level, nevermind your fiancée. It sounds like you’re so concerned with settling down that you’ve forgotten what it means to get engaged and/or married—the idea is a lifelong commitment. Why would you settle for a life of uncertainty where you’re hoping for love instead of getting it unconditionally? The answer is simple: you won’t! So don’t.
