Want to propose to your boyfriend? Try these tips!

Gone are the days when men got down on one knee, pulled out a solitaire and proposed to the love of their life! Now, it is the time for women to take charge. We're already turning things around by asking guys out instead of the other way around so why can't we do the same when it comes to a proposal too? If you love someone how does it matter who asks the main question? Now, that you have marriage on your mind, maybe it's time you take the plunge and ask your man the question. So, if you want to propose to your guy but aren't sure how to go about it, here are some tips that are sure to help you out. Take a look.


02/8Involve his family and friends in the proposal

Involve his family and friends in the proposal

Sometimes we end up planning a lot of things only to have something get messed up in the end because no one else was informed about the plan. So, if possible, try to include his family and friends in the plan so that they can help you out in any way possible. Wouldn't it be better if someone was there to capture your special moment or ensure that nobody interrupted your special moment? Then you could just pop the question and see how glad he'll be.


03/8Make sure your moment is captured

Make sure your moment is captured

Speaking of capturing the moment, if you don't have a family member or a friend who can be there for you at the time or if you just want it to be the two of you, you could just hire a professional photographer to click the pictures for you. Just have the photographer meet you at the location and give them all the specifics so that they know what to do beforehand. Trust us, your boyfriend will be super pleased with how you've planned everything.


04/8Surprise your boyfriend

Surprise your boyfriend

Try doing something quirky like giving him a cupcake with the ring inside or packing it up inside multiple boxes and then asking him to open it. This way when he finally gets to the ring he'll be so ecstatic. It'll be like a complete surprise and he'll definitely appreciate the gesture.


05/8Figure out what he likes

Figure out what he likes

Sure we women love it when men go down on one knee and pop the question but that isn't necessarily what your man might like. So, first make sure you know what his likes and dislikes are. Say he likes sports, so you could just take him to a football match and then propose to him during half time. It'll be the most memorable match of his life! Try to get gifts too, like his favourite chocolates or his favourite beer. Trust us, he won't be able to wait for you to become his wife.


06/8Give him hints

Give him hints

Yes, as much as he's going to love the proposal, you need him to be surprised not shocked. So, instead of just randomly popping the question to him, give him subtle hints. Tell him how you love him so much you want to spend the rest of your life with him. Cook for him, give him small gifts. This way he'll be anticipating something big and then when you propose he'll just be ecstatic.


07/8Pick the right time

Pick the right time

Don't just randomly propose. If you're putting in so much thought into the proposal you might as well try to make it as perfect as possible. Pick the right day and time to do it. For example, say you two decide to do something special for your anniversary, you could just pop the question then. Or, you could go down on one knee on his birthday and make it an even more memorable experience for him.


08/8Think of what to do afterwards

Think of what to do afterwards

See, to be honest, it is going to be a bit awkward. We've not yet fully grasped the concept of a woman proposing to a man, so even though your boyfriend is going to be thrilled he's also going to be a little confused. So, plan something for the time after you propose to help put both your minds to ease. You could go grab a bite at your favourite place or go watch a film that you'd both like. Let it settle in and let it take its time.
