Women purposing to men.... thoughts?


Apparently it's a new trend where women are now going down on their knee and purposing to the men in their lives. How do you feel about that? Is it socially unacceptable or weird? Are you all for women purposing to men? Or should our traditions of men purposing to women remain the same?

    Great answer! You covered many different aspects of the question, and I agree with you, at the end of the day, the result is the same, two people who love each other and who agree to spend the rest of the their lives together.

    It is an unequal gender stereotype. I find it ironic when a woman is all for gender equality, but when it comes to proposing, it's the mans "job". It really is just about two individuals committing to one another.

    I agree that going down on one knee isn't that appealing. In fact it looks kind of corny even when men do it in this era. Nevertheless if someone chooses to do so I wouldn't judge them. Love has often made people abandon appearance concerns! :)

    Very true!

    Two people have a wonderful conversation. Doe it really matter who initiated the conversation? All that matters is that it did take place! Self-empowerment is about being (proactive) and going after what you want in life!

    "it would be seen as desperation instead of love."

    Is it "desperation" when a man proposes to woman?

    Ideally one only proposes to someone they know loves them and has shown it over time.

    FYI: Lots of married folks take each other for granted! :)

    Well that brings up another question. Is it emasculating for the man if the woman proposes? Any MEN out there, how would you feel if your girlfriend proposed to you? Thanks for sharing peter.
