If you’ve found ‘the one’ and want to take things to the next level, why wait for him to propose to you? It’s the 21st century and these days there is no reason at all why we can’t take the initiative and propose to our man ourselves. Or of course you might be in a relationship with another woman and want to propose to her.
Traditionally, women can propose on February 29th, which takes place once every four years on a Leap Year. Irish legend has it that St Bridget made a deal with St Patrick to allow women to propose to men every four years, and the Leap Year tradition was born. The next Leap Year is in 2016, so you’ve got plenty of time to get planning the perfect proposal, or you can do it any time you like – there’s no law against it!
When it comes to planning the perfect proposal, the first thing you need to get right is the ring. Getting the size right can be tricky but the best bet is to try and sneakily borrow one of their rings and take it to the jewellers to get the measurements just right; as long as they don’t notice it’s gone! Style-wise, you could go for yellow gold or white gold and however many carats your budget and tastes allow.
Picking when and where is the next step. If they are a shy person, getting down on one knee in a packed restaurant could be their idea of hell. How about a romantic dinner for two at home instead? Or you could arrange a trip to somewhere special, perhaps the place you had your first date, and make the proposal there.
Have some choice words ready but if you get tongue tied don’t worry, just go down on one knee and they’ll soon get the idea.
If you’re looking for a little guidance or support during your proposal preparation, you may want to consider enlisting the help of a spiritual professional who provides angel readings.
