It can be the greatest and most traumatic waiting game of a girl’s life… Waiting for your guy to pop the question. Once you reach a certain point in your relationship, you can’t help but get excited for the next step. I know the waiting is something I’m dealing with, so for anyone else in the same boat, here’s my advice.
1. Let him do his own thing. You may have ideas about your dream proposal, all romantic and sappy, but his ideas might be different. It’s ok to drop a couple hints about ideas that you think are sweet, maybe sentimental even. He might have other ideas of sentimental or sweet gestures, or memories he wants to highlight when he proposes.
2. Please don’t nag him. Sure you want to have a conversation (a mature conversation) about where the two of you are in the relationship and discuss moving forward, but bringing it up all the time hoping it’ll happen sooner just isn’t going to be as motivating as you hope it’ll be.
3. Have faith. Once you’ve had the conversation and you’re fairly certain that the question is coming down the line, take comfort in knowing that it’s going to happen. Don’t stress about it and don’t try to pry information out of him (you wouldn’t want to ruin the surprise, would you?!) It will happen. And it will be perfect. Just relax and enjoy the fact that you have such a great love in your life.
