Proposing: Don't Sweat It

Updated on March 16, 2019

When asking a woman to marry you there is one thing that absolutely cannot happen, Sweat. Literally, Do not sweat when asking this question, if I were asked to marry someone who did not have good hygiene I would probably say no. On a more serious note, just wear deodorant, and everything will be fine.

What is the right way to pop the question? There is no right way. Every couple is different, and more importantly there is NO WRONG WAY to pop the question. If the two of you really love each other then even if everything that you planned fell apart everything will be fine. The memories of those times when nothing turned out the way it was supposed to are usually the most special. As a couple you should be close enough to tell her what the real plan was, and laugh together about what went wrong.

There are stipulations on when to ask her. This one is factored by how well the two of you know each other. Most women do not want to be asked this question when attending a funeral of someone close. But there are usually 364 other good opportunities. Holidays seem to be popular, and they are nice because usually that means extra days off work to see each other. Or as women we think a few more days that we get to live our dream of the man we love finally asking that special question that we were waiting on. Which makes it a good idea to ask the question earlier on your holiday vacation.

Asking her in public or private. This depends on the woman. But it is a good idea not to put extra pressure on her if you ask during the holidays and in front of family. Asking her with just the two of you around is also a good idea if she has second thoughts. Second thoughts are common, it may not be because she does not love you. It could be because she wants to finish college, get a steady income, buy a house, or even just a little nervous of letting go of her old life and starting a new one. So if she says no, ask her why. The best way to prevent this would be to talk about marriage with her before.

What to say? If you get tongue-tied do not fret. Just show her the ring, she will get the picture. It is nice to ask her though, and let her answer. Big speeches are not for every couple, but it is nice to remind her that you love her.

If somewhere during the process you start sweating, don't worry everything will be okay. It will be a special day for the two of you, and the last thing on her mind will be wondering if her fiance wore deodorant.
