I get asked a lot of relationship-themed questions given where I work, and one of them is from women with boyfriends who want to know how long to wait for the ring.
Decades ago the statistics ranged from six to fourteen months.

Yes, you probably are, but does he get to see that?
And (because we’re woefully shallow beings) does he get to see other people seeing that in you, too? Are you still making an effort with your appearance?
