15 signs you should POP the big question!
Are you wondering if now is the right time to propose? Well they say, “when you know you know” BUT you might be missing signs that it is time to take that next step.
1. You speak in "We" vs. I
Do you find yourself answering "We're great” when someone asks how you’re doing? Or always finding a way to mention your partner in conversation? If you haven’t noticed yourself doing this, look out for it. Your general desire to talk about “us” shows that your thinking has expanded beyond just you, which is a great clue that you might be ready for marriage.
