Is your BF acting like a total fruitcake? He’s jittery, slams his laptop shut when you walk into the room and now he’s having lunch with your dad. What on earth is going on!? Don’t worry, he’s not off his rocker, he’s just about to propose!
This week TheDiamondStore.co.uk, UK’s award-winning online jeweller specialising in diamond engagement rings, asked their female customers to tell all when it comes to proposals. According to the poll there are 7 dead giveaways that your man is about to pop the question.
1. He’s penny pinching
You nearly faint in shock when he announces he’d rather cook you a spag bol than order “one of those expensive takeaways”. But in fact 27% of girls notice their future husbands being cautious with spending when they are saving for a ring.
2. He’s having lunch with your sister
47% of women agree that if your man is having secret convos with your parents, siblings or best friend, it’s a massive hint he’s asking for your hand or researching what kind of ring you’d like.
3. He books a weekend in Venice
Twice you’ve almost missed a holiday flight because he didn’t pack his suitcase on time. Now he’s organised a romantic weekend, seeing to every detail himself. Suspicious? Yes, but in a good way. 17% of girls say their hubbies whisked them away to a foreign destination so they could propose in style!
4. His revealing Google search history
A rookie mistake: 67% of men research engagement rings online. Then one day you borrow his iPad and “engagement rings” pop up his Google search bar because he forgot to delete the history…
5. He’s interested in all things “diamond”
No, he’s not finally got in touch with his feminine side. 36% of girls started noticing their partner commenting on celebrity couples’ or their friend’s engagement rings, “subtly” gauging their reaction to ring styles and designs.
6. He asks you to get a manicure
A crazy 17% of men totally ruined their surprise proposal by hinting their girlfriends should go and get their nails done! Although really, it’s quite sweet. These beaus knew their Facebook-fanatic fiancés would immediately want to post a pic of their bling ring online… and would want their French manicures in tip top shape for the occasion.
7. He’s down on one knee…
You’d think you couldn’t get much more obvious than this, right? But one woman confessed she thought her boyfriend was just kneeling down to tie his shoelace. The waiter turned up and she started chatting to him about the wine list while her poor blokey was on the floor trying to propose!
