8. You love her quirks
In past relationships, you've always ended up being irreconcilably annoyed by your girlfriends' little habits. Whether it was a constant need for shopping sprees or leaving her hair all over your bathroom, there was always something you could not get over; but not with this one. The way she teases you playfully or makes fun of your complete collection of Pittsburgh Steeler bobble heads, in your eyes, is all good. In fact, you find yourself laughing along with her more often than not. This is a clear indication of how much you've come to appreciate her character.
7. You consider her family your own
You've met her parents and she's met yours. You've attended holidays, birthdays, barbecues and even the occasional tragedy together with her family. As they have embraced you as someone important in your girlfriend's life, so too have you come to care for them more than any other group of people (with the exception of your own kin, of course). When you get this intertwined with her, there's only one place left to go
6. You already know what ring to buy her
So you've started looking at diamonds and rings? Surely this must mean that you've been paying some attention to your lady's hints. Even more amazing to you, this is a process that feels less like a "chore" and more like a labor of love. You want the ring to really reflect your taste and your commitment to her. If this doesn't tell you you're ready to propose, then umm... what exactly are you doing it for?
