  How to propose a guy?- by Editor

A girl can propose a guy. Here is a guide on how to propose a guy which will make the task easy for a girl to confess her love to a guy.


It was her first day in the college. Pooja bumped into this cute boy on the first day of college. They soon became friends. As time passed she realised that she had a soft corner for him. Slowly it got hard to ignore the hidden feelings. She wanted to confess to him that she considers him more than a friend but she did not spill the beans. She kept thinking that it is unusual for a girl to propose a guy. She always thought that proposing is a man's job and girls should not make the first move.

If you have the feelings you should make way for them instead of hiding them beneath your heart. It is better out than in. Girls may hesitate to propose a guy as they do not know how to propose a guy? It is believed that men do not cry but men too are emotional beings and who knows you may be dating the guy of your dreams after learning how to propose a guy.


Is proposing only a man's job?

Many women still wonder if it is right or wrong to propose a guy. It is 21st century and we believe in men woman equality. Tradition believes that it is a man who first asks out a woman for a date but now the scenario has changed. People raise their eyebrows in astonishment when they hear stories of a girl proposing a guy. But it is perfectly all right for a girl to propose a guy. Just consider some important things before you pour out your heart to the man you love.


Choose the right time

How about proposing a guy on Valentine's Day? Choosing an appropriate day to tell your feelings to a guy, it will make proposing easier. Apart from 14th February you may pick up some other important days such as his birthday, a New Year's Eve or any other jolly occasion to let him know you love him. If you are going to propose your boyfriend for marriage the day you first kissed or the day you first met will be the ideal date to pop the question.


Choose the right place

Guys can be really sentimental at times. Avoid picking up a crowded place to propose him. Proposing at crowded place may put both of you in an awkward situation. Places like shopping malls, coffee shops and theaters are not the right places to propose a guy. Choose a place that would be quiet. Make sure the spot you have chosen to make your proposal should provide some privacy. Places like gardens or beaches can be perfect to propose a guy.


Make it romantic and memorable

It may sound clichéd but bending down on your knees and proposing to your love with a ring is still considered very romantic. Doing so will definitely melt his heart and he might express his love for you right there. You may toss a question at the place where you met for the first time. The fond memories will flood both of your hearts embracing you with the truest feelings of love. Your proposal should be passionate and romantic. A yes or a no is may be dependant on the way you propose.


Ask the question

Be calm before asking the question. Tell him that you want his full attention as you want to tell him something important. Make him prepared for the moment and then pop the question. Look into his eyes and make way for your feelings. Tell him that you love him. Tell him why you love him. Ask him what he thinks about being in a relationship with you. He might need some time to digest what you said. Do not force him to accept your proposal. He may need some time.


Say it with a love letter

Love letters can never be passé. In the age of e-mails a love letter is a rarity.One can put forward his or her feelings elegantly through written words. If you are feeling awkward to tell him your feelings you can always use a love letter. You need not use flowery language while composing a love letter. Just write whatever you want to convey him. Lay your emotions on the paper. He will get time to think on your proposal. It will make it easier for you too.


Be prepared for rejection

Make yourself ready for rejection too. It is not necessary that a person whom you love will love you back. Respect his decision come what may. If he is destined to be with you, he will be with you anyways. Otherwise accept the rejection and move on. You may get someone much better.


Ideas to propose a guy

When you have feelings for someone, you should convey them to the person you love. Here are some unique ideas to propose the man you love.

  • Go on the beach together and write the words 'will you marry me? Or 'will you be mine?' on the sands.

  • Bake him a cake and engrave your feelings with cream

  • Send him flowers with a love note.Who said boys do not like flowers.

  • Go traditional. Bend on one knee, present him the ring and say those three magical words.

  • Order some juice and put the ring at the bottom of the glass. He will be amazed to find the ring.
An anonymous author has said that love is like a war, easy to begin but hard to end. If his answer is a no then it is obvious that you will feel terrible for few days. Time is the best healer. If he accepts your proposal, it will be a dream comes true. Nurture your relationship with love and care. So churn your mind and come up with a creative idea to propose him. Let him remember the day through out his life. So stop waiting for Cupid and shoot your own arrows of love.

Comments:   If you love someone you should tell a concerned person. Our marriage was a love marriage. Before our marriage we were seeing each other for around four years. It was my wife who proposed me. I was a shy kind of boy in college and she was quite talkative. We were good friends at first. I liked her personality. Actually I felt something special about her at first sight but I did not have the courage to say ‘I love you’. One day out of the blue when we were in the library she walked to me and confessed her love for me. I was confused and bit nervous to answer her back. But I was very happy that she asked me out. Otherwise I would have lost her for ever. Of course I said that I love her too at the very moment when she said I love you.

Comments:   I think girls can propose a guy. According to me when a girl proposes a guy she proposes in an innovative way. My best friend proposed her boyfriend when they had rose day in their college. She told him that she loves him a lot and what he thinks about it. He asked for some time to think and within two days they both were very much in love with each other. But it will not be always like this. One should be ready for rejection too. It can be very hurting for a girl when a boy says no to her. But she should take it sportingly without forcing him or begging him to say yes. If he is the one for you, you will get him come what may. Otherwise you should accept the rejection.

Comments:   Who said that girl can not propose a guy. Of course they can. I think it is important to make him your friend first. A friendship can be a good base before putting your proposal in front of him. You may get some hints whether he is interested in you or not. But you have feelings for someone then you should let him know. You may regret later for not telling him how you feel. I am going to forward this article to my friend who has crush on a boy in her class and she is confused if she should propose him or not. But I think she will do it after reading this piece of advice on proposing a guy. In fact I believe that boys are straight forward. They will tell you yes or no without any hesitance.

Comments:   I am a middle schooler (8th grade) and I really love this guy. I know it may seem foolish to be "in love" when this young, but I am CRAZY about him (in fact, i want to spend my whole life with him). We chat on facebook and hang at school, but I don´ t know for sure if he likes me back. He talks to three other girls (and kind of flirts, too). He invited me to trickortreat with me and this other girl. His birthday is on Halloween, by the way. Should I get him a present and tell him my feelings? I am desperate for this guyhelp!

Comments:   As a guy, my opinion is if someone not proposing a girl only if he is not enough confident about maturity in relationship. Give strong signals to guy that u love him take some time after giving few signals...it will definitely work.... or it will be comfortable for both... when u propose him.
