While there’s no definite way you can guarantee yourself a proposal, here’s some surefire things you can do to at least help yourself in pushing things along:
Ultimatums Are Not the Way to Go
Many women who are in a rush to get married will issue ultimatums to their boyfriends, telling them that unless they propose, the relationship is done.
While this may work for some guys, do you really want your marriage to happen because you forced him into it? Wouldn’t it be better if it was something he wanted to? Handing your guy an ultimatum not only shows how desperate you are to get married, (which no woman should ever be), but it also shows that you care more about getting that ring than you ultimately do about him and his desires.
Complaining About the Relationship Won’t Help
Finding things to complain about and making statements such as “If we were married, this wouldn’t be an issue…” is a big mistake. You are not only reinforcing the idea in your own head that your current situation with your man isn’t good enough, but you’re also making him feel inadequate. Also, it’s this type of nagging that makes a man not want to get married in the first place.
Get Really Close to His Mother
Your guy’s mom can be a powerful ally if you’re longing for him to propose.
Mothers can suggest things in a very convincing way to their sons, and tell them things that they might not realize, such as “She would be such a beautiful bride,” and “Don’t you want to marry this one before she gets away?” Even if this annoys him, he’ll be thinking about everything she tells him anyway.
Show Your Domestic Side
You can put the idea of domestic bliss and marriage into his head simply by showing off a side of you that he may not know about or hasn’t seen enough of.
If you don’t know how to cook, study up on easy recipes online and try them out when he’s not around. By the time he is around, you’ll hopefully have them perfected. In addition to getting your cooking skills down perfectly, make sure you demonstrate how clean and organized you can make a home. It may seem old-fashioned, but the point is that he sees it and recognizes that you would be a great wife.
Examine Negative Behavior
Look at your own behavior patterns in your relationship and be honest with yourself about what you need to focus on. Do you whine a lot? Do you blame him for things that aren’t really his fault? Do you take it out on him when you have a bad day just because he’s there?
Behavior like this needs to stop. You should be asking yourself “If I were him, would I want to marry me?”
Appreciate What You Have Now
A great way to make it feel like no time has passed at all before you get engaged is to enjoy what you have now!
Each day with your man should be special and appreciated, whether you are his girlfriend or wife.
Be an Overall Asset
A husband and wife should be overall assets to each other. So look at what you have to bring to the table in a marriage and make sure what each of you have to offer is equal.
You can not only help inspire a proposal, but also make your relationship much better now by making sure you’re both being unselfish and giving each other all that you can.
