-by Editor



Although, the act of proposing someone is already labelled as a guy's job, you as a girl should never feel hesitant to do it. Today, girls are ahead in all walks of life. So, if you have found that perfect someone, go ahead and propose him. Listed below are some interesting ideas.

It was her first day in 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 feeling 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 the 21stcentury and we believe in men's 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. Here is the list of things that you can consider.

1. Choose the Right Time

How about proposing a guy on Valentine's Day? Choosing an appropriate day to tell your feelings to a guy, 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.

2. Choose the Right Place

Guys can be sentimental at times. Avoid picking up a crowded place to propose him. Proposing at the crowded place may put both of you in an awkward situation. Places like shopping malls, coffee shops, and theatres 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.

3. 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 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 dependent on the way you propose.

4. 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.

5. 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 to him. Lay your emotions on the paper. He will get time to think about your proposal. It will make it easier for you too.

6. Be Prepared for Rejection

Make yourself ready for rejection too. A person whom you love doesn't need to 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.

7. Think of the Ways of Coping

If you feel that you won't be able to accept the rejection, you can think of the other ways to convince your guy. Think about the second step in case if your first proposal gets rejected.

8. Get Into the Shoes of the Guy

It is very important to get into the shoes of the guy you love to understand how he will feel when you propose him. Before saying those golden words to him, do a thorough study of his background, his choices and his temperament.

9. Make Your Guy Feel Better

When you will be proposing your guy, make sure that you make him feel better. If he is already pressured or stressed, try to make him feel easy. Send him positive and cool vibes. Discuss a few things that will make him feel comfortable and relaxed. Always focus on trying to make your guy feel special and important.

10. Stay Positive

Although, you must have thought about 'Plan B' always stay positive. Create good thoughts before you propose your guy. Always think about positive outcomes.

Comments:   Seriously, just go for it, via text, a note, email, whatever. Just say you like them. As simple as that. Worst thing that could happen, "meh, I don´t like you". That´s all. Perhaps, you could be friends. One important thing, don´t be disappointed if he´s hesitant. He´s just probably insecure. He´ll say yes, even if it´s later. Try asking later if you doubt this.
