How to Propose to Your Boyfriend
Although it isn’t a leap year any time soon, you may still be wanting to pop the question yourself instead of waiting for your other half to do so.
And of course that is totally fine after all, we are in 2018 and anything is possible.
So many people are now going against tradition when it comes to their wedding whether it be with the colour of the dress, having a top table or even something as simple as not wearing a veil.
So why should you stick to a traditional proposal and wait for your other half to ask the all-important question.
And think about it, the best part about proposing yourself is that because it isn’t seen as tradition.
There will be fewer rules to follow meaning you can make the whole experience completely personal to the both of you.

But there will still be a lot of planning as this is still a very important step in both of your lives, and the start of your engaged lives.
But you can kind of make your own rules up as you go which will probably make the whole situation a lot less stressful.
And there doesn’t have to be a special reason to be the one asking the question.
- You don’t have to be pregnant
- You don’t have to be fed up of waiting
- You don’t need to be proving anything
All you need to know is that you love your other half and you want to be with them forever.
Although the rules can be broken there are a few that we suggest you stick to.
Let the parents in on what you are planning - usually if the man proposes he should ask permission off the father of his girlfriend.
But since the roles have reversed you could keep it casual and ask both the mother and the father of your other halves.
Buy an ‘engagement ring’ - this doesn’t have to be a ring as in such, more of a sentimental keepsake that will last a lifetime.
A great idea would be buying a watch that you could engrave the date of your engagement or wedding day on as it will be something he will wear every day.
