Going from a shared lease, to a shared last name. From evening walks, to walking down the aisle. The signs are everywhere. It’s time to pop the question. And together, we’ll make that happen this Poptober.

What is Poptober? Poptober is that little tiny nudge some partners need in order to pop the big question. And we're talking about the "Will you marry me?" question - not what should we order in for dinner tonight! Poptober is a great time for a proposal - and here's why!

It Shows You’re Paying Attention to the Signs There are all kinds of little clues or signs that lead to the decision to pop the question. Some of these signs are obvious, some are much more subtle. Have you noticed that...

And the most important sign of all: You can't imagine living without her. It doesn't matter whether you've been together for several years or only a few months. These signs and other little hints are signals that it's time to pop the question!

Why Poptober?
The question should be: Why NOT PoPtober? You've already been thinking about getting engaged. Maybe you've even talked about it. Maybe you've been shopping for rings or thinking about a ring budget. Maybe she's been dropping little hints about timing. Maybe your Mother has been dropping bigger hints!
