How do you know when it’s the right time to get engaged?

Cupid’s Advice:

Knowing when it is the right time to get engaged is more than confusing. Not only is it confusing however, it is challenging to determine. Some people say ‘when you know, you know’ yet, this is not always the case. You may know, but not entirely know. It really is simply a enormous, confusing process. Cupid has some advice for this:

1. Trust: Do you trust your mate with your entire life? Can you tell your partner anything, no matter how they will react or what the circumstance is? If you answer these first two questions with a ‘no’, you may want to reconsider getting engaged right time. You know it is the right time to get engaged when your mate knows every little aspect of your life. What your favorite pizza topping is, how many people you have dated, your deepest darkest secrets, the entirety of your life.

2. Love: Love is all you need ladies and gentlemen. Of course there are a few exceptions where the love is not reciprocated and an engagement may not work out. However, it most cases, if love is evident, go out and buy that ring darling! The type of love present needs to be specified in the books. This is not some silly-little puppy love we are talking about, the love present needs to be full blown true love. If you have that, go for gold! Literally!

3. Happiness: Does your beau make you happier than you’ve ever been in your entire life? Do you make your partner happier too? Is the happiness between the two of you equal? Hopefully if you’re considering engagement, these answers are a ‘yes.’ If you can not see a life without your mate because you will be miserable, you know. You know you’re ready when your sad when your partner leaves for the bathroom.
