11 Signs He Wants to Marry You (Even You Are at the Early Stages)

11 Signs He Wants to Marry You (Even You Are at the Early Stages)

When in a long-term relationship, sometimes it gets difficult to decipher the subtle signs that a significant other is sending. If you think that your partner is entertaining the idea of marriage, look for these signs to clue you in.

1. He is Making Future Plans

Guys don’t bring up things that they really would rather not talk about. But when a man brings up future plans, it is an indication that he would like to know your opinion on them, and your opinion does carry weight with him.

2. You are Invited to Every Occasion

You have become his plus one to all special events and family holidays. This means that he sees you playing a huge part in the big picture of his life. He wants to introduce you to his family and make you feel like you are a part of it.

3. He is Punctual

If your man is always on time, he is definitely into you. When a man is in a serious relationship, he will make sure that his woman does not have to wait for him. He will let you know if he is running late and he won’t ever leave you hanging.

4. There’s an Increase in Touch

It will almost feel like when you first started dating. Your man will be way more touchy-feely, touching your arm while you’re cooking or taking the time to massage your neck while you’re working.

5. He Misses You

You will feel like nothing can get in the way when your man has made the decision to make time to see you. When he makes a promise about plans, he will follow through, and this is a great sign. On the flip-side, if he is always calling to break plans, this means you are not at the forefront of his mind. Someone who does this is not feeling committed at all.

6. He Only Sees You

He will not have a wandering eye that will make you feel jealous or uncomfortable. Your man will be focused on you even in a crowded restaurant.

7. He Wants to Live Together

When a man wants to share his space voluntarily and not only as a way to save money, he’s thinking toward the future. This can also happen if he suggests opening a bank account together or getting a pet. Moving in together is one of the most obvious signs he is ready for marriage.

8. He Opens Up to You

If your man opens up about something that’s upsetting or bothering him, this means that he trusts you and your opinion has value to him. This is a level of closeness that is definitely leading down the path to marriage.

9. He Doesn’t Run Away During the Hard Times

There will be challenging points in relationships and they can get more difficult with time. During these times, if your man stays by your side and doesn’t run away, this is a good sign that he will want to be by your side on your wedding day.

10. He Can’t Get Enough of You

This includes staying the night together if you don’t already live together, taking vacations together, and inviting you to events like company parties. He wants you next to him for everything.

11. He Has Said That he Wants to Marry You

Even if he’s joking when he says that he wants to marry you, it means he is comfortable enough to mention this and wants to see how you feel about it.

Men aren’t always the greatest at explicitly saying what they mean, and oftentimes when they try it comes out wrong. Whether your guy has or hasn’t verbally expressed his interest in marrying you, keep an eye out for these signs that it’s on his mind.

7 Ways To Deal With Negative People

7 Ways To Deal With Negative People

Some people will have a rain cloud hanging over them, no matter what the weather is outside. Their negative attitude is toxic to your own moods, and you probably feel like there is little you can do about it.

But that couldn’t be farther from the truth.

If you want to effectively deal with negative people and be a champion of positivity, then your best route is to take definite action through some of the steps below.

1. Limit the time you spend with them.

First, let’s get this out of the way. You can be more positive than a cartoon sponge, but even your enthusiasm has a chance of being afflicted by the constant negativity of a friend.

In fact, negativity has been proven to damage your health physically, making you vulnerable to high levels of stress and even cardiac disease. There’s no reason to get hurt because of someone else’s bad mood.

Though this may be a little tricky depending on your situation, working to spend slightly less time around negative people will keep your own spirits from slipping as well.

2. Speak up for yourself.

Don’t just absorb the comments that you are being bombarded with, especially if they are about you. It’s wise to be quick to listen and slow to speak, but being too quiet can give the person the impression that you are accepting what’s being said.

3. Don’t pretend that their behavior is “OK.”

This is an easy trap to fall into. Point out to the person that their constant negativity isn’t a good thing. We don’t want to do this because it’s far easier to let someone sit in their woes, and we’d rather just stay out of it.

But if you want the best for this person, avoid giving the false impression that their negativity is normal.

4. Don’t make their problems your problems.

Though I consider empathy a gift, it can be a dangerous thing. When we hear the complaints of a friend or family member, we typically start to take on their burdens with them.

This is a bad habit to get into, especially if this is a person who is almost exclusively negative. These types of people are prone to embellishing and altering a story in order to gain sympathy.

Why else would they be sharing this with you?

5. Change the subject.

When you suspect that a conversation is starting to take a turn for the negative, be a champion of positivity by changing the subject. Of course, you have to do this without ignoring what the other person said.

Acknowledge their comment, but move the conversation forward before the euphoric pleasure gained from complaining takes hold of either of you.

6. Talk about solutions, not problems.

Sometimes, changing the subject isn’t an option if you want to deal with negative people, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still be positive.

I know that when someone begins dumping complaints on me, I have a hard time knowing exactly what to say. The key is to measure your responses as solution-based.

You can do this by asking questions like, “Well, how could this be resolved?” or, “How do you think they feel about it?”

Use discernment to find an appropriate response that will help your friend manage their perspectives.

7. Leave them behind.

Sadly, there are times when we have to move on without these friends, especially if you have exhausted your best efforts toward building a positive relationship.

If this person is a family member, you can still have a functioning relationship with them, of course, but you may still have to limit the influence they have over your wellbeing.

That being said, what are some steps you’ve taken to deal with negative people? Let us know in the comments.
