Cupid’s Advice:

Deciding when you should propose can be tricky, even if all the feelings seem to be there. Here are some signs that can help making your decision a little easier:

1. Your heart: Follow your heart. If you cannot imagine your life without your honey and are madly in love, you should take the next step without hesitation.

2. Hints: Hints are a girl’s best friend; whether she’s ready for a ring or wants a specific birthday present. Taking advantage of these moments can prove helpful in the future.

3. Long relationship: A pair who has been together for quite some time knows each other inside and out. Don’t waste any more time, and go after what you want while you have it.
