There is hope, and it is a lot simpler than you think.Read More...
Fear of Failure
I think most people these days feel fairly confident that they will receive a positive response when proposing before they decide to do it. So the nerves felt by most men when deciding how to propose and the consequent execution of the act usually derive from the wish to impress their loved one as opposed to the fear of rejection.
To be honest, the fear is fairly warranted. Most women will admit to wanting certain things from a proposal and possibly worse, they may already have a pre-conceived fantasy of their dream proposal scenario. It is a lot of pressure! So the best you can do is work from a basic wish-list and then incorporate what you know about your beloved.
Firstly, unless you know she has a real aversion to surprises, planned spontaneity is the way to go. This fabulous contradiction in terms is actually quite simple; choose a proposal idea that will appear spontaneous. There is an immense amount of satisfaction that can be gained by the success of pulling it off as well. Some added creative touches will make it a winning combination.
How Well Do You Know Your Partner?
There are a million proposal ideas out there, ranging from the hugely elaborate to the quiet and intimately private. Whichever method you choose to propose has got to depend on what you know about your loved one’s likes and dislikes. And then there are the traditions to keep in mind which again, depending on your bride-to-be’s personal beliefs, may or may not be that important. Figuring out how to propose is almost easy compared to deciding whether you should ask her father for her hand in marriage!
However, throughout the process, try to keep in mind that this is an exciting and happy event. The outcome will more probably be in your favour and it is just the beginning of a wonderful new adventure together.
