How to Get a Guy to Propose

For women marriage proposals are often thrilling. It doesn’t matter if it happens to her best friend or she watches one in a movie: a proposal is a beautiful thing to watch. But it can also be very difficult for a woman to wait around for her man to propose to her. If you have been in long relationship and are still waiting for him to pop the question, worry no more: you can get your guy to propose to you without looking desperate.

  • Show him the good sides of yourself. Approach it like market packaging; that is, you need to package yourself well in order to sell. But how do you do this? You can highlight your good sides and leave the not-so-good sides hidden for the time being. If you are a good cook, then make sure to prepare meals for him. If you are great at taking care of children, allow him to watch you play with little kids. If you’re great at household management, you can show him how clean and organized your place is. This will lead him to think you will be a great life-long partner.

  • Always dress attractively. It might be more comfortable lounging around in your pajamas, but your boyfriend will appreciate your taking an interest in your appearance. We’re not talking about being dressed to the nines 24/7. But if you have a date, make an effort to look good. Just because you’re already familiar with each other doesn’t mean you can neglect to make yourself look good for your partner.
  • Be supportive. This is one thing for which a man looks in a partner. Men often don’t get the kind of support system they need from their male friends. The greatest encourager a man can have is a wife. Being a girlfriend, for now, will give you enough room to show you can be the encouraging wife he needs.
  • Have your own life. It is important for a man to still have a separate life apart from the one you both share. Finding a woman who is okay with that is a treasure he will want to keep. Have your own life and focus on your own space. This will guarantee him that he doesn’t need to baby sit you all the time. An independent woman is a desirable life partner.
  • Show him you love him. This is the most important key. A man is not perfect and neither is a woman. You have to remember he might make some mistakes, and you have to forgive him for that. If you show this kind of attitude early in the relationship, he will be more motivated to keep you for good.
