If you and your girlfriend have gone through each relationship milestones successfully and in your heart you know already that she’s the right one, then maybe it’s high time you pop the question.
First, let’s clear out some things . . .
Do you recall several of those proposal videos that have gone viral where the girls seemed more surprise at the question than the act of proposal itself thereby putting them in hot seat? Well, you knew what happened; these girls rejected their boyfriend’s proposal right there and then! Frankly, this is not a good memory to bear; the humiliation may even petrify you forever. The point is to never, ever make a creative attempt in making a proposal unless you’re sure you’ll get a “yes” from your girlfriend. You don’t stage a proposal so daring you’d think that because of that she’d say yes – no, you don’t want it that way even if it worked. Because if she isn’t sure of her feelings but just said “yes” for the sake of humiliation, chances are she’ll take it back soon after. And that, my friend, is as painful as being rejected the first time.
If she’ll say yes anyway why go through the fancy trouble?
First of all, if you know in your heart it’s something she’s been waiting for a long while now, then you owe it to her to make her feel good about asking her to be your eternal partner. The good feeling will allow her to justify in her mind that everything was worth the wait after all. You sure want to witness that priceless show of emotion on her face, and that can only happen if you make your proposal right and precise.
Prepare your tools, commission your board of advisors
If you’d like to stage a grand act then you’d better call for help; this is your first time so you have no stock knowledge of these things. What kind of ring to buy, what’s the proposal concept, what do you need to prepare and where do you do it? With the help of some families and friends your anxiety level will start to mellow down making you feel more excited than nervous.
Once everything is ready, it’s now time to plan your act
Would she like a public proposal? Unless she thrives on attention, she may, otherwise stick to an intimate few like common friends and important relatives. How about an in-house proposal to keep her from public view of her unexpected hysterical cry? Would she be proud to show off a tech-prepared proposal like a podcast, or a live streaming of this main event? Has she hinted somewhere in time that she’d love a fine romantic dinner cum proposal? Whatever the concept, make sure it’s done well so as not to ruin the highlight of the night.
Popping the question is one event in your life as a couple that should create a romantic and lasting memory. Knowing that you’re doing it for the one you really love makes all the trouble worthwhile.
