The idea is to do it yourself if you think it is worthwhile to do. Well, when it comes to popping the question, several ladies of today are already considering this option. This means, there is now a trend among women of today to get down on their knees in front of their boyfriends. This is because most women are said to be tired of waiting for they men to propose to them and so they are more than willing to take this matter of proposal into their own hands.
If you are the type who can go against tradition, and you think that you will be happy to do the proposal yourself to hear those wedding bells, then it is better to have some guidelines when doing this action.
The number one that you have to make sure is that your boyfriend is ready to tie the knot. It is not meant here to ask your boyfriend outright about your proposal as this could ruin the thrill of the move. It is better that you take notice of some signs that will give you hints to know if he is ready or not to settle down. Considered as the biggest signs if your boyfriend is positive about marriage is how he reacts to wedding in general, and if so, then you will have a successful proposal.
When you propose, you do not need a ring considering that a male engagement ring is not the in thing today. You can either give a diamond bracelet for your man as a great option to a ring, or a pair of cufflinks which are less demure. Whatever you will give, do not be so stressed about it when you propose since we are sure that it will put a smile on his face once you give him this surprise.
The location is another consideration that you have to be mindful when you make the proposal. For example is if the location is ideal because it is the place that has extra meaning for both of you because it is where you had dinner first in that restaurant, or it is the hotel where you had a weekend anniversary. Therefore, it means the place will bring a kind of sentiment so that when you get down on one knee, there is more meaning and special feeling that will be added to your proposal.
Because it is not a trend for women to propose to men, just expect some contradictions from some people like your nearest and dearest, who will tell that this is not the proper thing to do, and thus just wait for your boyfriend to be the one to propose.
