7 Tips For Proposing

March 31, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 158

Every guy is nervous during the build up to the proposal. Why wouldn't he be?? What if she says no or something goes wrong with his elaborate plan? This is supposed to be one of the best days in our lives. It needs to be perfect! Well here's 7 tips for proposing to your girlfriend.

1. Getting the "YES!" Before you propose, you need to be 99% sure that she's going to say yes. Have you talked about marriage before? Is this something you both want and are looking forward to? Or does the word marriage stress your girlfriend out? You'd be surprised how many men pop the question assuming that it's what their girlfriend wants. Isn't that what every girl dreams of?? Not always. Make sure you know what your girlfriend wants.

2. What day should I propose? This can be a difficult choice. You want the day to be romantic, so should you propose on Valentine's Day? Maybe if Valentine's Day is special to your girlfriend, that could be a good choice. For others, that day is all about marketing and not for real romantics. Her birthday could be a great day to pop the question. An anniversary is always a safe bet as well as memorable. It could be your first date, your first kiss, the day you met.

3. Location. This is important. What kind of girl is your fiance to be? Does she love attention and crowds? She might love for you to ask her in front of all your friends on a night out. If your girlfriend's a little shy or a private person, she might prefer a quiet dinner, followed by a walk on the beach. Another great idea is to take her on a vacation to somewhere she's always wanted to go. Asking her in a romantic location while away together is sure to get a "yes!"

4. Don't forget to be romantic! However you choose to propose, it needs to be a romantic occasion. Getting down on one knee is traditional but also very romantic. Make sure to tell her all the things you love about her and how much you want to spend the rest of your life with her.

5. Be confident. You don't want to seem nervous when asking your girlfriend to marry you. Just relax, stay calm, and maintain eye contact. Prepare your words ahead of time. Practice them so you don't leave anything important out on the day.

6. The ring. Ah, the all important ring. Do you have one yet? Make sure you have one when you ask her! If you're not sure what she'll like, you'll have to do some research. Pay attention to the kind of jewelry she normally wears. Does she prefer silver or gold? Is her jewelry simple or glitzy? Ask her friends if she's mentioned what type of engagement ring she wants.

7. Things to avoid. Don't spontaneously pop the question. You have to think about the date you choose and the way you will spend it together. It needs to be special and romantic. Don't hide the ring in her food. A broken tooth is not what you want your fiance to remember about the day.

The day you propose to your girlfriend should be a special day for both of you. For more information on engagement rings visit
