While some of you gentlemen may have popped the question over the Thanksgiving holiday (leave us a comment and tell us how you did it!) we’ve got more tips for those of you who are still waiting for the perfect moment. Today I want to tell you to be yourself.
She fell in love with you. She wants to marry you. And she wants you to be the one asking for her hand in marriage.
I understand that this can be a nerve wracking time. It’s a big step. Nerves are totally acceptable but don’t let yourself get so carried away in thinking about and planning to propose that you start neglecting her or forget to be yourself. Many times a woman will sense a proposal coming (thus ruining the surprise) because her man starts acting weird. Don’t act weird! Be the man she fell in love with!
This also applies to the proposal itself. If you have never worn a suit in your life and the thought of even putting one on appalls you, then make your proposal more casual, but still just as special, because that’s your style! If you love nature and she loves you for that, incorporate the outdoors into the event! Make it you. Make it her. Make it y’all!
And ladies, we don’t want to leave you out today! Did you get engaged recently? As hopeless romantics, we’d love to hear your story!
