Cupid’s Advice:

Getting engaged is a big step. Whether you’ve been dating for a few months or several years, it’s sometimes hard to know when the time is right. Cupid has three telltale signs to consider:

1. You bring out the best in each other: Whether it’s making your partner constantly smile or helping them achieve new success at work, it’s important to always bring out the best in each other. Friends and family will see that, and you’ll be sure to get their stamp of approval.

2. You share similar values: You should be on the same page as your future fiancé. Whether it’s how many kids you want or where you want to live, it’s vital in any relationship to agree on the big issues. If not, one of you may ultimately end up disappointed.

3. You enjoy every moment together: For a relationship to last, you need to enjoy each other’s company, no matter what you’re doing. Marriage doesn’t mean fancy dinners and expensive gifts; you’ll have to be content with just hanging out sometimes. Whether it’s going to the grocery store or doing the laundry, you need to be just as happy doing these boring chores as you will be on date nights. The Bachelor runner-up Lindsay Yenter’s instagram tells us her and celebrity love Karl Swanson enjoy spending time with each other no matter where they are.
