11 Things All Men Do When They're About To Propose (And 11 When They're About To Breakup)

It's hard to think of a more exciting time than when your boyfriend pops the question and the two of you are engaged. Whether you know from the very beginning of your relationship that things are going to go in that direction, or whether it took you a bit longer than that, you've waited for this day for at least a bit of time.

Everyone is going to have a different proposal story and every couple is going to decide to take the next step at a time that is right for them. One thing is for sure, though: there comes a point in the relationship when you either get engaged and take that next step... or realize that things aren't right and that you should break up. Hopefully you get engaged, but if you know that this guy isn't the one for you, it's so much better to move on and find the right person.

You can tell when a guy is ready to either ask you to marry him or tell you that it's not working out. Read on to find out 10 things all men do when they're about to propose... and 10 when they're about to break up with you!

Propose: Spend A Lot More Time Texting

Propose: Spend A Lot More Time Texting

When your boyfriend is getting ready to pop the question, you just might find him spending a lot more time on his phone than usual. You might wonder if something is up, but it's not what you think because it's not anything bad.

He might be texting friends or family and making plans for the proposal. He could also be texting his friends, his mom, or his sibling(s) to let them know what's going on. He might be nervous about proposing so he wants to let people know ahead of time and get their advice and well wishes.

Of course, you won't know that he's going to propose unless you two have been talking about getting married, so when you see him on his phone, you might worry that he's bored with you or talking to another girl (even if you're not the jealous type and you have no reason to think that way). Hang in there and before you know it, you'll be engaged and realize what he was up to all along... and he'll definitely tell you that, yup, he was texting his sister and his best friend about the proposal. Awww. They will probably tell you, too, since they'll be so happy and so excited that all they'll want to talk about is your brand new engagement.
