Getting a Man to Propose – 5 Tips for Getting Your Man Down On One Knee

getting a man to proposeHave you been dreaming of the day that your man kneels down on one knee and asks you to be his wife? Do you feel like you need to speed the process along or at least try to encourage your guy to go through with the proposal already?

There are a few things that you can do to get your man to propose soon. Now, keep in mind getting a man to propose to you is going to be a lot easier if you already are in a committed relationship and have discussed your future together, but even if your guy hasn’t quite committed to you, there are still things you can do to encourage him to pop the big question.

Here are 5 tips to follow when it comes to getting your man to propose.

1. Don’t Be Afraid to Bring Up the Topic of Marriage

Some women are scared to even mention the “M” word around their boyfriend as they think he will run for the hills at the thought of marriage. But, if your man has expressed his feelings for you and you have an open communication with him, he should respond positively to talking about marriage.

Sometimes dropping hints don’t work with guys and you have to flat out tell the man that you would like to get married to him one day. You may just be surprised of what his answers may be when you talk to him. It could be that he simply just hasn’t thought about marriage because it was never brought up or he is waiting because he wants to accomplish some goal first like a better paying job or saving some money so he can be financially stable.

2. Show Him What a Great Woman You Are

Continue having fun with your man and let him see what a great catch you are. Go out and try new things with your man as well as just enjoy each other’s company. By keeping things new and interesting you can avoid falling into that “boring old couple rut” that sometimes happens. Show him that if he spends forever with you, his life can be fun and he can have it all with a great woman who is his best friend, lover and woman of his dreams.

3. Don’t Act Like His Wife

If you already act like his wife, then what reason would your man have to propose to you? Although it is very common for couples to move in with each other before they are married, my advice is to wait until you are actually married or at least engaged and the wedding date has been set.

You know the old saying, “Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free.” Well, that saying is popular for good reason. If you are already living with your man, taking care of his daily things like cooking, cleaning, and even paying for some of his stuff, then why change a good thing? There are not a lot of men that would want to change this situation by getting married.

If you are already living with your boyfriend, there may not be a lot you can do, as moving out now may actually hurt your relationship, but you can still stop acting like his wife. Let him do his own cooking, laundry and bill paying and let him know that the reason why you are not doing these things is because you aren’t his wife (yet).

4. Men Don’t Like Ultimatums

If you end up giving your man an ultimatum that if he doesn’t propose by a certain date then you are leaving or breaking up with him, you may just be hit in the butt by the door as he closes it on you and your relationship. No one wants to be forced into marriage and to tell you the truth, these types of marriages don’t work. Do you really want to force your man to marry you now so you can just get divorced later?

Instead you need to either have a real conversation about marriage with your boyfriend without giving ultimatums or…

5. Re-evaluate Your Relationship

Just because you have been dating a guy for a year or even 3 years doesn’t mean you should get married. It’s not the length of time you have been dating but the progression of your relationship that should lead you into marriage. Some relationships progress quite fast and couples are married within months of meeting each other, while other couples may date 5 years and still not be ready for marriage.

Also, you need to realize that if your man is telling you that he doesn’t want to get married or that he can’t ever see himself getting married, this isn’t a sign for you to push harder. This may be a sign for you to find someone else to marry or deal with never being married, because most men who say this don’t change their minds very often. If you really want to be a wife, you need to take a deeper look at your relationship and see if he is the right guy for you or if there is someone else out there for you.

Some women assume they can just get their man to propose within a couple of days and be walking down the aisle in the next few months, but that is not the case most of the time. There are things you can do to help the process along, but you should never, ever force an engagement on someone who is not willing. It will only lead to heartbreak.
