Before you propose to somebody, there are a few things you need to consider and do. I mean, getting married is a huge commitment, and when you propose to somebody that’s what you’re promising to do. People seem to almost propose on a whim these days, but showing you’ve put actual thought into it is a must. Here’s what to do before you propose:
Check With The Parents
You don’t always have to check with parents. It isn’t the rules in a lot of families these days, in fact, it’s very traditional and old fashioned. That being said, if you want them to know you’re serious or get on their good side properly first, you could let them know your plans. In the past, they used to have a say in whether you wed or not. These days they don’t, but it can still be nice to give them a heads up if you feel everybody would like that. If not, feel free to surprise them with an excited phone call after the proposal.
Ask For Advice If You Need It
If you need advice from your other half's close friend or something, ask! Proposing can be so overwhelming, and the internet will tell you all kinds of things. At the end of the day, each situation is unique and nobody knows your other half like you, her friends and family. Ask for advice from somebody who knows your situation and you might get a better result.
Buy A Beautiful Ring
It isn’t all about the ring, but it’s an important part of the proposal. It’s the only thing that will last forever, and you can bet everybody will want to see it when you tell them you’re engaged. Take your time doing a little detective work and choosing the right one. By reading this Whiteflash review and similar reviews, you can get an idea of the best rings and diamonds out there.
Plan The Proposal Properly
Take your time planning a proposal with oomph. Don’t feel pressured to hide the ring in food and do it at a busy restaurant. You don’t have to write her name in the sky with a blimp or propose at a huge game, unless that’s what you think she’ll like. It’s ok to have the proposal just the both of you. Some like to do it on holiday, with a picnic - there are a ton of ways. What will you remember forever? What suits you as a couple? You don’t want to put your other half under pressure even if you’re sure she’ll say yes.
Make Sure You’re Both Ready
Getting engaged is a big deal. Make sure you’re both ready for the commitment. Never ever get engaged in the hopes that it’ll fix relationship problems. It won’t. Only propose if you’re both ready to make the next step in your relationship.
I hope your proposal goes just the way you want it to and you get the ‘yes!’ you’re looking for. Good luck!
