Hey Hey Hey!
Well this week will be different. Since my background is part Love Doctor, as seen on the recent Bachelor in Paradise episode, I feel it is only necessary that I give all the guys advice on how to propose to their ladies.
This is a very special moment that you and your best friend are going to remember forever, so don’t screw it up! Just kidding, but really. As you are thinking about what you should do or say, remember that you want it to be personal. The person most important is the one you are asking, not putting on a display for everyone else to see. (I know, I know it’s hard to hear me saying that, but my situation was different. I didn’t have the option of taking her aside without cameras to propose. But, aren’t you happy you got to share in that moment with us?) Some of you may have thought about what you want to say or do for months. Others, days. But one thing is certain. Mean what you are going to say or do. If you are at this point in your relationship, don’t be nervous, be excited! She is going to say yes. Right?!
Here are my tips in no specific order, besides #1:
1. Make sure you say her full name! It’s respectful and shows you are a gentleman, even if you aren’t.
2. Relate your proposal to a positive experience you had with her. This will get her excited about recalling the good memories you shared.
3. Know 100% what you want and that you are committed to this proposal.
4. Make sure you give her a kiss (given, duh)
Not a long list right, but it will go a long way. I promise. Now before you do that, you obviously need some sort of symbol to show her that you are committed to her. Most people give a ring, but maybe that’s not your thing. Let’s just say it is. Personally, I am not a fan of going and picking out engagement rings together. Rather, you should find out what she likes through her friends, family, subtle nuances and hints that she gives you. Then, when you have enough information, you can go ring shopping by yourself or with a friend. Going with one of her best girlfriends is not a bad idea either, just don’t get caught haha.
And that is all I have for you right now. Let us know how it goes! We’d love to hear that she said yes.
Take it easy and Go Seahawks!
Not sure the different styles of rings, let me help you with some choices below.
