John Mayer is reportedly ready to take the next step in his relationship with Katy Perry, according to friends of the couple.

Life & Style reports that the singer, whose new album "Paradise Valley" dropped on Tuesday, has been asking Katy's friends for some tips on how to go about popping the question.

“John has been asking Katy’s friends tons of questions, like what kind of engagement ring she would want and what the best way to propose would be,” a source tells Life & Style. “They’ve been so serious about each other ever since they got back together (this past June)."

Mayer hasn't splashed out for a ring yet, but according to the source he plans to make his move by the end of the year.

“John wants to do something special, probably around the holidays,” the insider said. “There are a lot of options on the table. Nothing is ruled out. It could happen on a romantic getaway or during a family dinner.”
