Step 7: Propose
You’re planning on proposing? That’s huge! Don’t stop reading now.
We are going to give you some tips on how to navigate through engagement. It starts getting interesting now.
Don’t buy a ring that is more expensive than your car.
A Few Helpful Steps
Is she the one? Better be a man now. Proposing is no joke.
Step 1 So you are thinking about engagement? That must mean the ideas on this website are paying off for you. Or you’re becoming a man on your own. Good job. Go ahead. Reward yourself with some Man Cards. I know proposing is a big step and it’s not easy. It’s time to read more.
Step 2 You want to find out what other people are doing. How have other men proposed? You can use someone else’s general idea and make it better and unique to yourself, or come up with a proposal idea on your own. But make it good.
Step 3 You could make it a surprise or go ring shopping together to know what she liked and her size. Start deciding what you want to do. This is your problem. But you’re a man. You got this. But one thing for sure, you need to put some time into this. Don’t just go up and say, “Hey, Let’s get hitched.” That’s a boy move right there. Put some time and effort into this. She will tell this story for the rest of her life.
Step 4 When this story is being told in the years to come, you want to be proud of this. And you want her to be as well. You can do a dinner, breakfast, etc. I made breakfast, took her to a private place, brought a guitar – when you propose, you can do that stuff too.
Step 5 Use the things you have been working on – courage, confidence, being awesome. You’re going to be a little nervous, but you can do this. And make sure you are down on one knee. My goodness, unless you are skydiving or jumping into a volcano to escape from a bear, get down on one knee.
Step 6 Wear something nice and get a camera ready. You want to be able to look back to this date and be impressed. Don’t wear a t-shirt with a hole in it. I don’t care if you are going to a mud pit, put a collared shirt on. Now, some people have somebody hide in the bushes to take photos and videos. I’m not against that, but you don’t need that. Just make sure you have a way to remember this day with photos.
Step 7 A man doesn’t linger when he proposes. Make up your mind. You know if you want to marry this girl. It will become very clear. What isn’t clear is your hazy slow-decision-making self. You need to lose that. Be a man. You should know soon if you want to marry her or not. Don’t be dating for 5+ years and act like your married. Put a ring on her finger. Have mercy.
