So, you've been in a relationship for a while, you know it's serious and you can't wait for him to propose!3

Trying to read the signs of whether or not he's ready to propose can be quite exciting and frustrating at the same time.

Here are guest contributor Adrian Barber's list of signs that he's ready to pop the question!

"When are you two going to get married?" If you're like a lot of women, you probably hate it when well-meaning relatives and the occasional friend ask you this question.

Not only does it leave you and your beau feeling awkward, but if you've been dating for a few years and have been hoping for a ring, this question can be a painful reminder of your long wait.

So how long should you wait around for the man in your life to propose?

That, of course, varies from couple to couple.

However, if you're looking for a number to give you an idea of the average "wait time," consider that a study conducted by an eHarmony relationship expert revealed that couples were together for an average of about 2.8 years before marriage.

If you've been dating for several years, it's possible that you're closer to a proposal than you realize.

But how can you tell?

Here are a few telltale signs:

1. Have Most of His Bros Settled down?

If most of his buddies are now married or are in serious relationships, he'll probably hear the "call of the wild" less often.2

And even when his buddies do call, he's not as eager as he once was to join them.

2. Does He Often Absentmindedly Talk about Future Plans?

Possibly even about his desire to have children someday?

If his conversations revolve around more about the two of you rather than just what he wants to do in the future, that is a good sign that he is committed to staying in a long-term relationship.
