Would she say yes? Maybe she can say no. What if she changed her mind? I’m having doubts if I’m going to push this. But I want her to be mine; I want to have a family with her. What would I do? Can I just ask her to marry me? Or maybe I can be more creative and do something better…
Here are some tips that you can do when you are already thinking about popping the big Q.
While you are both enjoying your trip having a good laugh inside the car, pull over, step out of the car, go down on your knees, and ask her the question that she’s probably waiting for a long time. (turn off the car engine just to make sure that she doesn’t run you over out of excitement 😉 )
Go on a mountain hike
What a better way to put an a analogy to your proposal than this. You can be a little cheesy like telling her “my love for you will endure the terrains of this mountain” or “i’ll go up any mountain just to get your YES”
NOTE: Be sure to time the proposal perfectly where she’s not catching her breath or you do not smell like your wet socks… otherwise you won’t get the answer that you want.
The sunset probably signifies a very romantic ambience. Imagine yourself with the one you love walking while holding hands, pa-sway sway pa, while the sun is about to go down. Then you stop to a halt, go down on your knees, take out the ring and ask her “will you marry me before it totally gets dark?”.The best part about doing this during a sunset is that you get her full attention all thru the night.
NOTE: It’s best done seaside, bay-walk or park.
Add a little grandeur
Ask your woman to dress up elegantly and make sure that you are dapper yourself. Get that coat that you haven’t worn for years. Wear a tie if you have to. Get your shoes shiny where you can see clearly the reflection of your nostrils and bring her to a theater, an opera or a concert.
NOTE: It pays if you know people in the event. You can give them a heads up of what you plan on doing after the whole shebang.
Keep It Simple Stupid. If you are 100% sure that your partner really loves you, you don’t have to go uber extra-ordinaire. She was probably thinking about strangling you already because you have been dating for a long time and you haven’t given a hint that you want to spend the rest of your life with her. So a simple dinner will do.
Have you ever imagined yourself doing something that will kill you? Well if you’re thinking about proposing, some people say marriage is like killing yourself slowly; but that’s according to people who grow old alone. But for hopeless romantics like us spending the rest of our lives with the one we love is like a leap of fate. So go skydiving!
NOTE: Make sure that you follow safety precautions and that your ‘chute will open otherwise that part in your wedding vow that says ,”Till death do us part” is fulfilled even before she says YES”
You’ve probably seen a lot of these in youtube. They are the most popular for millenials and you can emulate the same or add your own flavour and style to one.
Take Note: You may need a lot of help from both of your friends.
Theseare some of my suggestions and there are a lot of ideas out there that you can still do. But remember this: popping the big Q or asking someone to spend the rest of her life with you is not a walk in the park. In fact it’s just a beginning of the new chapter in life. At the end of the day how much you love her and how much she loves you back is what lasts a lifetime.
