So, What’s It Like to Propose?
When it comes to proposing, there’s no video you can watch or guide you can read to prepare you for the moment you actually do it. You can plan everything out to the last detail and something can still go wrong. You can do it on the fly and still find your heart beating like it’ll pop out of your chest. So, what’s it like to propose? We’ll give you the rundown on what you can expect to think and feel so you have an idea of what’s to come. Keep in mind that when it’s time to actually propose, everything you know just may be thrown out the window.
When it comes down to it, proposes require a lot of work, a lot of pep talk, and a lot of thought about the future. For some guys, and their girls, the thought of proposing can be mentally, physically, and emotionally exhausting. No matter what you have planned or who you want to get involved in the proposal, it can take a lot out of you to come up with just how you want to pop the question. If you’re waiting for the right moment, that adds another level of stress and excitement to your proposal.
It’s important to let others know what you’re thinking and feeling during the proposal phase of your relationship. Even if it’s just a family member or a friend, having someone to talk through these thoughts and feelings will help put you at ease before you get down on one knee. It can be nerve-wracking leading up to the proposal, and you want to keep your wits about you to pull it off just right.
For some, once they receive the engagement ring they’ll be using, the anxiety really starts kicking in. Many proposals happen in the spur of the moment because the timing feels right or because once you see the engagement ring in person, you just want to ask for her hand in marriage. Depending on how you want to propose, be aware that having the ring in your possession will often change how you feel about waiting to propose. Some have proposed the same day they received the ring they’re using, completely throwing away the time and energy into planning a proposal.
No matter how you plan to propose, you’ll be overcome with emotion before, during, and after. This is normal and to be expected. No matter how long you’ve been together or how much you love your girlfriend, proposing is a big step forward for the both of you to celebrate your love and lives together. Every emotion you feel, good or bad, is normal when getting ready to propose.
Whether your proposal goes off without a hitch or there’s a few hiccups along the way, remember the love that brought the two of you together is worth the good, the bad, and everything between as you tackle life as an engaged couple.
