According to RadarOnline, Funny People’s Seth Rogen popped the question to longtime girlfriend, Lauren Miller last week.  After coming back from a family visit in Boston, the actor bent down on one knee to ask for her hand in marriage.  Dating since 2004, a source close to the couple reveals that Miller was beginning to give up hope for a proposal.

If your man seems reluctant to pop the question, how can you tactfully find out what he’s thinking?

Cupid’s Advice:

If you’re looking for a ring by spring, perhaps some good old-fashioned subconscious mind tapping will do the trick:

1. Get his reaction: Bring up the subject of marriage indirectly.  For example, if a mutual friend of yours recently got engaged, make a casual comment about it, like, “I wonder where they’ll have the wedding,” or “They look even happier than they did before.”  Does he unknowingly smile when you say it, or does he roll his eyes?  His reaction could be all that you need to solve the proposal puzzle.

2. Channel Josephine Bonaparte: The empress of France knew what to do when Napoleon was dragging his feet.  Rumors that she was spending her free time in the likes of powerful, rich men, jolted Napoleon to put a ring on it.  By letting your beau know that you’re a hot commodity, it could give him just the push he needs to go to the jewelers.

3. The ultimatum: In today’s society, things move fast.  Technology has caused us to think quicker, act quicker and question things a lot more than we did in previous decades.  So, it’s no surprise that you may need to ask yourself, “Where is this going?”  Pick a time when both of you are alone and relaxed to bring it up. But don’t flip out if you don’t get the answer you want.  Sometimes its better to move on.
