The marriage proposal is one of the most talked about phenomenons in dating. Everyone wants their marriage proposal to be special and men go out of their way to try to make it “the best.” In today’s world, with our ever-expanding access to other people’s media, we see all different kinds of marriage proposals. Don’t believe me? Just head over to Youtube and see for yourself. With this visibility of other marriage proposals, men are often worried about making the proposal. Not only are they worried or nervous about being rejected, but now they are worried that the wedding proposal will be less than satisfactory. What’s a guy to do? What is the perfect marriage proposal?
Luckily for men, the perfect marriage proposal isn’t as daunting as it may seem. While some women really do want the biggest and grandest gestures, it’s likely that you’ll already know if you have one of those women. Most women don’t care about the grandeur of the proposal itself, but rather about the emotion and love behind it. In other words, they want to know you care and they want to hear you share how you feel.
When looking for ways to propose, think of ways to make it special and unique. A woman wants to know that you’ve thought about it, that you mean it, and that you are excited for this next step in your relationship as well. Look for places that mean something to both of you. Perhaps there is a park that you first walked through when you began dating? Or maybe that restaurant where you had your first date? How about the location where you first told each other that you loved each other? Find a place that holds a special memory. It will automatically make your wedding proposal more romantic because romance, is really all about care and thoughtfulness. It’s a connection.
Then you have the words. What will you say to this woman that you want to spend the rest of your life with? It’s up to you. The pressure is on. I’ve found it works best when guys focus more on how they feel rather than trying to make something witty, clever, or romantic. She wants to hear about why you first fell in love with her, why you want to spend the rest of your life with her now, and some of the special memories the two of you have created along the way. Don’t make it more difficult than it has to be. Speak from the heart and she’ll be happy. If writing poems or songs is something that you do a lot, it’s okay to use one in your proposal. However, it isn’t necessary. If you aren’t an artistic guy, don’t worry. She already knows that about you and she just wants you to be you. That’s the best advice I can give to someone looking to craft the perfect marriage proposal. It’s about remembering the special moments that you’ve had together, it’s about speaking from the heart, and it’s about being you. After all, it is YOU she fell in love with.
