Asking Your Partner To Marry You : A Short Guide For Men

Author : Callum Leslie Walters

Getting engaged is an extremely exciting time in anyone's life, but for the man who does the proposing it can also be quite nerve-wracking. This is why it pays to think about the proposal before you do it. For some top tips on the matter, read on for the things for men to consider when getting engaged. One thing you need to think about is whether you are going to tell anyone you're proposing before you do it - will people be able to keep it a secret?

Another thing to think about is the ring as this is vital for any proposal. Having a budget for what you can afford to spend is a good idea, as is spending some time thinking about what she likes so you can get the perfect ring. Finding out her ring size is also advisable so you can be certain it will fit her. Alternatively, some women prefer to choose their ring themselves so you could always wait until after the proposal to make the purchase.

Another important issue to consider is the location you are going to propose. What do you think your lady would like? If she likes to be wooed, then a romantic meal out could be just the thing for you. If she likes her privacy then proposing at home in candlelight could be a good option. The important thing is that you are both going to feel comfortable in the location you choose so it is definitely worth giving this considerable thought before making your final decision.

Once you have decided where you are going to propose and have dealt with the question of the ring, you need to decide what you are actually going to say to her when you ask her to marry you. One option is to keep things very simple and to the point. Another option is to make something of a speech before you pop the question. Which option you go for will depend on her preferences as well as how you are feeling at the time.

One last thing to consider when getting engaged is what is going to happen afterwards. Basically, as long as the two of you are happy with everything then nothing else matters, but some people like to arrange a party so they can tell everyone their happy news as soon as possible. Others still like to keep things quiet for a while so they can enjoy their newfound status together - whatever you do, though, just make sure you are happy and that you enjoy it!
