My letter to the woman of the world.
Hey everyone—have you ever had a life transition that was so big, but felt like it was drawing itself out so much, you thought it would never end—this is where I am right now. I know that my life is at the brink of new beginnings with getting married in the next few weeks—insert transitions and big changes. My life is already starting to change with doing big girl things like looking into houses to purchase, and taking my career seriously, amongst other things. It has been a crazy but very rewarding season of transition, because I have learned so much. I know that my “singleness” season will be permanently over soon, and it kind of freaks me out and excites me at the same time.
All right, guys and girls who are on the verge of popping the question, this one is for you. While there is no right or wrong way to ask for your love's hand in marriage, there are certainly many romantic and creative ways to propose—marriage proposal ideas that will leave your partner crying and screaming from excitement, shock, and pure love. This is a moment in your lives that will be remembered forever, a story told to friends and family until the day you die. You want it to be everything he/she dreams of and more. However, for many, just the idea of getting down on one knee is so nerve wracking that people actually postpone out of fear. Is this what she would want? Where should I do it? When should I do it? Should we be alone or surrounded by friends and family? These are just a few of the fears of putting a ring on it that will cross your mind; however, I have got to say, even with the perfect ring and out of this world proposals, at the end of the day, it is the question and answer that truly matters most. Once that word "YES" is said, you two are officially on your way to being married, a monumental and life-changing milestone. With that said and understanding that it is the love and commitment that matter most, let's get to the fun part, which is popping the question. Remember, these are all just ideas and past engagement stories, but with a few personal tweaks to make it original. You can turn any of these suggestions into an incredibly romantic and creative proposal for your love anyway you wish!
Men are complicated human beings and they make everything harder than it needs to be, shocking right?
Asking someone to marry you is one of the most important things in life. Therefore, the timing and setting of this event should be carefully considered. You are convinced that they are right for you, and have asked for your parents’ blessing and advice. Do your families get along? If so, you are ready to marry your future spouse. There are several things you must keep in mind when you think of a way to suggest marrying someone. First of all, this is a memorable moment that will be talked about by your friends, family, children, and grandchildren over the years. Make it a worthwhile story to tell.
Chances are that if you've got making the proposal on your mind, you've probably been with your partner for a while. You might be going into the proposal with near complete confidence that they're going to say, "Yes!"
I've been with my boyfriend for almost six years now. While we have had our ups and downs in the beginning stages of the relationship, I like to think we are far stronger than ever before. Most people who have met us usually say the same thing. They also, after finding out how long we have been together, are shocked that we have not tied the knot already. Usually, I bypass this comment by mentioning how young we are, how we have a lot on our plate with moving, and how it just isn't the right time for us.
Most girls fantasize about their perfect proposal from a young age—the ring, the setting and most importantly the dream person! However, the timing of a proposal is what could make or break the whole experience.
The ring has you the most excited.
Wedding season has come and gone, and you’re still with your beau. He hasn’t proposed, and you’re starting to get nervous. Does he just not want to be with you? Couldn’t he say something already? Are you going to stay unmarried, just because he’s being a stubborn prat?!
