"Cosmopolitan" magazine loves nothing more than getting your poor, marriage-crazed panties in a wad by saying that things like your boyfriend "guarding his phone" are surefire signs that he's about to propose. Well, sorry, but that's probably not the case.

The women's movement has made it easier for us to crush through many a glass ceiling, have children if and when we want, and enjoy casual hook-ups, but one effect doesn't exactly seem like something to celebrate: More women are popping the question. According to a poll from the online dating site Swoon, one in 10 gals have asked their guy to tie the knot, because they were fed up with waiting for him to do it himself. Gah!
Honey Davenport was in character, performing his usual set at a Manhattan drag bar. Clad in a rainbow leotard and platform heels, he took a swig of his drink and ripped off his wig—sweaty and exhausted from the hourlong performance. Suddenly cheers erupted: New York's state legislature had legalized same-sex marriage, and on the eve of gay-pride weekend. Davenport's boyfriend made his way to the stage and got down on one knee. "Will you marry me?" he asked.
Holly Madison wanted to marry Hugh Hefner for a very long time. She was his long-term "main" girlfriend for seven years, and for awhile that was enough. Pretty soon though, she wanted more. She wanted a wedding, and children and the ever-important privileges of being a someone's wife. He was unwilling to tie the knot. After seven years, Holly finally packed her bags. We can see why the girl might be a little peeved about Hugh's engagement to Crystal Harris after less than two years of being together. But for Holly, and women everywhere, this should serve as a wake-up call. Even Hugh Hefner will get married if he really wants to, no matter what he has said in the past to the contrary.
Our relationship had never been boring. After meeting on Friendster two years earlier, I immediately began dragging him along to a series of Moroccan restaurants, dive bars, and techno clubs I was reviewing for a nightlife guide. Now, he was standing beside me, wearing a full Santa suit, clutching a hat and fake beard in his fist, and staring pointedly at his spat-clad sneakers. This time, we were trying out Santacon, an annual dawn-to-dark mass gathering that celebrated spontaneity, ingenuity, and riotous holiday cheer. What more could you ask for?
Men discuss the careful timing when it comes to getting married.
Decisions, decisions. Anybody who's ventured down the candy aisle at Target knows that the more options you're presented with, the harder it is to pick one of them. Apparently, the same philosophy applies to single men, who put off proposing when they have a surplus of single women to choose from. Forget romantic locales, the best cities for singles are the ones with the most available men.
A modern woman shouldn't break down over a marriage proposal. But despite all the gender-role changes over the past decades, men asking women for their hand in marriage is a tradition that has remained strong. And for a woman who wants her man to get down on one knee, waiting for that one little question is stressful and nerve-wracking. But can waiting for a proposal really drive you crazy?
The season finale of 'The Biggest Loser' had us rooting for everyone. (It's difficult to choose "the best" when every contestant shed so many pounds. Luckily, the scale was impartial and chose Danny.) But even more heart-grabbing was the romance that Alexandra (voted off in week one) and Antoine (voted off in week two) found at the ranch. In fact, the show has produced two marriages and even a baby (take that, Bachelor) and several relationships. Here, our top three 'Biggest Loser' couples.
