  • Well every guy drops hints differently I think. My husband wasnt to settle about it. He just kept talking about having kids and if I wanted to be with him forever.

  • looking at rings

  • I would think you would have already discussed marriage and you are thinking in that direction. He may act sneaky and wierd because he's looking for a ring. If he goes out to eat with your parents alone he might be asking permission.

  • When my DH asked me I had no clue. We'd talked about it before, something for the future I thought. Until Valentines Day (well the night before) we went out for dinner. The whole night he was acting strange, so at that point especially once dinner was finished and he hadn't said a word to me that something was up. Sure enough he took up to this spot that over looks the city, and asked me to marry him.
