For me, the proposal is even more important than the wedding. I see the wedding as the celebration of the proposal, and I don't want to be celebrating something that I didn't make perfect. It's figuring out what is perfect for us that I'm having a problem with.
You've found the perfect woman -- check. You're ready to get engaged -- check. Now, there's just one important question to be answered. Not "Will you marry me?," but more importantly, "How do I find the right ring?"
You should only propose to someone because you love them and because you want to spend the rest of your life with them. Not for any other reason. If you propose out of guilt, both parties will become resentful.
It is very important for a woman to know how the man she is dating feels and whether he will eventually step up and propose. These 7 signs help you clarify if he thinks your relationship is for keeps or just fun for right now.
Sure, it's très romantic to get engaged on Valentine's Day, or to surprise your intended on their birthday with a platinum engagement ring. But, as sweet as this sounds, you're not thinking big picture.
