Are you waiting on your other half to start searching for yellow gold engagement rings, but have the feeling that your partner hasn’t even given it a second thought? Angelic Diamonds has four solutions to get him geared up to pop the question:

1. Be his go-to guy

The one point in your relationship that you want to avoid is when you and your boyfriend have assigned individual roles as a couple. If it has already developed to this point, it’s time that you become your other half’s go-to guy as well as girlfriend instead. If you’re constantly being left behind for the guys, then this is going to put a strain on his ability to propose and take you seriously.

Taking an interest in your partner’s passions and hobbies is one way to become his go-to guy, as is choosing to exercise as a pair. If you can be part of his whole life, rather than just someone he spends time with, then he’ll feel like you’re indispensable. Once you get to this point in your relationship, then he’ll feel like proposing, as he can’t spend his time without you!

2. Take the honest approach

Sometimes, the best possible solution here is to simply sit your partner down and just have a chat where you discuss how you see your relationship going. It needn’t be an awkward conversation; just discuss with your partner why you want to get married and he should soon start to understand just how much he means to you. Sometimes people have the same fears and doubts within a relationship, but they are just too afraid to address them with each other. By talking about your future together, he’ll know that you want to be a part of it.

3. Take a tough stance

If honesty doesn’t sound like the best option for you, then there’s always the option to go to the other end of the scale and be cruel to be kind. If you don’t see your relationship heading in the right direction, and things are flatlining, try and find his pulse again by telling him you may move out.

A step too far for you? A gentler approach that still shows that you’re taking a stand is to start going out with friends more or changing careers without getting your boyfriend’s advice. Although he knows that you’re always there for him, this will make him feel that he isn’t being as included as he should be, and he’ll start to wonder why. Keeping him on his toes in this way will make him realise that he needs to put the effort in (by proposing!) so that he can get your undivided effort and attention in the future.

4. Arrange more things with married couples

Consider this — your boyfriend may have put off asking for your hand in marriage as he may be worried or anxious about life as a married couple. Try to resolve this by hanging around with friends who are happily married, as well as family members who also have children. This will make him realise that you’re comfortable with him being around others in more serious relationships.

Take caution that both the ups and the downs of married life are likely to be seen the more time that you spend with couples who are married. However, at the very least if should also get your boyfriend picturing a wonderful married life with you. Although men who have parents that are divorced sometimes struggle to trust this commitment, replacing negative feelings with positive ones in this type of environment may help to bring him around to your way of thinking.
