How to Drop Hints That You’re Ready for the Ring

Are you hoping that your partner will pop the question soon? While you can’t force your significant other’s hand, there are things you can do to help move things along. If you’re worried that your partner may be dragging his/her feet, here are a few creative ways to drop hints that you’re ready for them to “put a ring on it!”

 

Make it known

If you’re ready to take the next step with your significant other, make it known! Your partner may not even realize that this is something you’ve been thinking about, so don’t just hope that he/she will read your mind. Proposing to someone is a huge step in a relationship and the fear of rejection can be scary and intimidating. Be sure to talk about your feelings and all of the things that you’re looking forward to experience with your significant other in the future. Rather than forcing the idea of marriage, you want to gently nudge your partner in the right direction. It’s important to make sure that your significant other understands how secure you feel in the relationship.

 

Flaunt your ring style

Your engagement ring is a symbol of your love that you’ll wear with pride every single day, so it’s important that it suits your style. If you have a preference or even a specific ring that you love in mind, there are a few ways that you can drop hints to your partner without saying a word. One way to do this is to leave a picture of your desired ring open on your partner’s computer. Online jewelers make this particularly easy to do by offering their selection of engagement rings online. This allows you to easily find your desired engagement ring and alert your partner of it without having to do much work! You can also enlist in the help of your friends and family to let your other half know which style ring your prefer.

 

Discuss future wedding detail preferences

If you feel comfortable having an open conversation about the future with your partner, try talking about what you’d like to see at your future wedding. From vendors to food and decor, take time to discuss which details you’d like to include in your special day. Has a friend or family member recently got engaged or married? Take this opportunity to discuss what you liked about their proposal or wedding and what you’d do differently. If you don’t feel comfortable being so direct, try placing catering menus on the dinner table for your significant other to read or suggesting a tasting. Then you can ask your significant other what kinds of foods or drinks they’d like to have served at an important event. You can even look into a caterer and check out their special events menu to see the different serving options. Perfect idea for date night!

 

Be patient

There’s nothing less romantic than rushing or demanding a proposal because you have a deadline in mind. Consider this: when you get married will it really matter if you got engaged in the Fall or Spring? Give things time and see how they play out before you make a move and avoid giving ultimatums. It may seem like your significant other is taking things slow for no reason, but in fact he/she may be trying to save up money for a ring or waiting for the right time to ask your family for permission. Of course, there are some circumstances where deadlines are important, like if you want to have kids. In this case, if you’ve been patient and aren’t seeing any signs of commitment it’s important to have an honest and open conversation with your partner about where they see your relationship going.
