How Do You Propose?


How Do I Let Him Know I’m Ready?

Okay, you’ve talked about where you’ll live, the house with the white picket fence or maybe the split level ranch, and how many kids you’ll have (or not have). Chances are he’s just as ready as you are to get engaged.

Well almost as ready. But maybe he needs a little hint.

There are plenty of ways to let him know. You could just come right out and ask him if he’s ready to get engaged soon and how he feels about it. Or, you could print out pictures of engagement ring styles you love and leave them in a convenient place. Hmm, not too subtle.

Okay, maybe take him to a restaurant that happens to be near an engagement ring store and then “just have a look around” and see how pale he gets. OR… just go ahead and tell him how much you’d like to be married to him. He should pick up on that.


How Do I Give Her The Proposal She Wants?

The perfect proposal is made of three ingredients:

The first ingredient is YOU! There’s a reason she’s been with you all this time and wants to be with you forever. You love each other. Have faith in that.

The second ingredient? You’ve found the perfect engagement ring. It fits her finger. It fits her style. It fits your budget. Maybe you even bought it with her. No matter…she wants it, and you’ve got it. Nice going.

The third ingredient? You know how to make this moment and proposal personal. You’ve actually written down some words about how you feel. Thought about the places and things you’ve shared. Thought about who you want to share this moment with…the world, your family and friends… or is it an intimate moment that is only shared with each other?

Don’t worry… with these 3 ingredients, all of the answers are right, because this is your time and this is meant to be.
