2. Get Tips From Her Best Friend/Mother

Its always good to get tips a head of time from your girlfriends mother or friends before you propose for vital tips, for the requirements your girlfriend may have mentioned in the past. Your girlfriends mother or friends will probably have some great tips which could really help you for your engagements plans like choosing a public or private proposal?

3. Ask Permission From Her Father

It’s always best to ask for permission from your girlfriends Father before asking your girlfriend to marry you. One of the great reasons for doing this is to get his approval which will look great in the eyes of your girlfriend!

4. Choosing Between A Public And Private Proposal

Depending on what you were able to learn from the hints your girlfriends mother or friends told you, you should be able to work out what would work best for your girlfriend. Don’t worry if you didn’t find this out because generally public proposals have always worked best for me. A nice restaurant which the two of you have been to before, will always be a good option because your girlfriend will feel relaxed, and more likely to say yes in a familiar setting.

5. Picking Out The Ring

Picking the ring for your proposal needs to be able to fit into your budget, and yet stun her by it’s incredible beauty. Some girls prefer rubies, sapphires, emeralds or diamonds. If your girlfriends mother or friends did not mention the type of ring that your soon to be fiancé would like, then it’s always safe to get a girl a gold diamond ring. The diamond does not have to be large, and smaller diamonds are quite reasonably priced to fit in with your budget too.

Ways Of Proposing To A Girl

If you want some ways of proposing to a girl that you love, then here are some tips:

1. Be Yourself

Proposing to a girl, always works best if you just be yourself. She loves you for being the person that you are, and not someone else.

If you just be yourself then you won’t get flustered when it comes time to proposing.

2. Know your Girl and Propose Accordingly

Every girl is different, and not all are the same so a girl may like it if you propose to her in a special way. This could either be in a public place or in a private place. She might have given you a hint as to if she is a private person or likes public places so propose accordingly.

4. Buy a special gift for her

Every girl always has some favourite thing they really enjoy. This could be a box of chocolates, some red roses, or something they have really wanted for a long time, like some new accessories.

5. Proposing in a unique way

Once you have done all the above steps it i now time to propose to your girl. It always pays to propose to a girl in a unique way so she does not anticipate what is going to happen. You could either make the lead up to the proposal long or make it short, and quick. Either way only you would now the best unique way to propose because you know your girl best. Practice your proposal speech ahead of time so your not flustered if you forget what to say but maybe this could be your unique way of proposing.

Adorable Ways To Propose | How Do I Go About Getting Engaged?

Adorable Ways To Propose

When it comes to going about getting engaged, generally there are 5 adorable ways to propose when getting engaged. Here are those 5 stages a girl will go through:

1. Dropping Hints

Men will generally drop hints that they want to get engaged. They can drop these hints at any time of day, and any day of the week so be ready. They will drop hints like “do you want to got to my cousins wedding?” or “I guess we could get married after college?” These are all sure signs that they want to get engaged, all you got to say is “yes!”

2. Planning and Dreaming Stage

After you have got your boyfriend suggesting on a daily basis that he want’s to get married. You can now start planning, and dreaming. You can start by checking out the great Pinterest wedding boards, and adding them to your brand new wedding board. Then you can start planning, who will be coming to the wedding, and other such details.

3. Waiting Phase

The waiting phase is knowing you are getting engaged but you just need to wait. Your Pinterest board is growing every day, you are talking to your parents about potential bridesmaids, checking your boyfriends pockets for a ring he might be hiding. You are also getting very excited because any day now your boyfriend could be asking you “do you want to get married”

4. The Proposal

This could be any day now but you should be looking out for common signs. These common signs will be things like him asking you “Do you want to go somewhere” or “I want to show you something special”. Finally this is the day you have been waiting for. He takes you to one of your special places, you have a nice meal, he makes his speech, he bends down on one knee, and reveals the ring to you. He says to you what you have been waiting to hear “Will you marry me?” and you say “Yes!”

5. The Honeymoon Stage

You are finally engaged, and you are wearing your engagement. You have changed you relationship status on social media, you have been telling your friends that he is more than a boyfriend now, you have been showing your new engagement ring to all of your associates, and friends. You have changed your wallpaper on your phone to a photo of your boyfriend, but you are really waiting for the real honeymoon now.
