  • I think it is ok. I also think it is ok in terms of making it a "I want to marry you"... no pressure, just letting you know where I'm at.

    It kinda sets the tone and you can talk, as you get to know each other try to move in that direction. I think that helps either shorten it or make it stick for LTR.

  • There was this commercial, I think it was Dove or Secret deodorant for women, and the girl proposed to her boyfriend at a restaurant in a fortune cookie. And I watched that with my boyfriend and said, "oh my gosh I would never do that." And my boyfriend was like "Why not?" Which surprised me because I thought guys, would think it was emasculating to be proposed to. I personally wouldn't do it, because I feel like people would just assume he didn't want to marry me so I pushed along the situation and forced him to say yes.

  • Depends on the guy. Why hasn't he proposed? Might want to be careful with that one.

    Overall I wouldn't have an issue with it. Just have to be understanding on where you do it. In public to a guy who thinks it's his choice might do more damage then good.

    *If* a girlfriend proposed to me I wouldn't mind but would say no. I've not asked because either I'm not ready or I don't want to get married. The latter is my current position.

  • Nooo, you'll cause a tear in the space-time coninuum!!!

    Of course it's ok, the reason it doesn't happen often is that traditionally the man would ask since men would take longer to be ready for the commitment.

  • Well, I guess if you really like something you put a ring on it..

  • It would definitely feel strange (because of social conventions etc). I've had girls ask me out or make a first move, but a proposal would be a different thing I guess

      well i am not exactly sure if he say yes or no... but i don't want him to feel awkward if i propose to him because i am not a guy so...

      I guess you should do it in private like someone else suggested. He may feel less awkward.

  • My mother proposed to my father, next year they'll celebrate their 40th anniversary ^_^

      why? give me the details. is it because they're feeling so awkward when a girl propose to a guy?

    • 2mo

      I think its awkward tbh and most girls usually want to get married before guy, so they might jump the gun with the proposal and get turned down. Plus its a guy thing, some guys wanna propose to his girl...

  • hey, didn't monica originally do it to chandler?

  • No, lightning will come from the sky and smite you... don't risk it.

    Yes it's totally fine! Some guys themselves may not like it because maybe they want to do it and are traditional etc or maybe they had a plan in mind. But even those guys would probably love that you wanted it so much you asked yourself.
    Do it.

    I'm not really sure how the whole ring thing goes though.. Do you get HIM a diamond ring :P

  • Is there a law saying you can't where you live? If you reallllly want to marry this man it shouldn't matter what anyones opinion is because in the end its between you and him

  • Why not? This is the 21st century. Females are supposed to be able to take care of their own life.

  • personally i'd feel like it's emasculating. it's tradition for the man to propose.. however that being said it's 2016 and everything back in those days is merely a thing of the past so... if he's not the kind of guy to take it personally then sure =)

  • If you feel confident, go for it. Personally, I want the guy to propose to me. But it's all up to you!
