Since childhood, most girls imagine themselves in a snow-white dress next to a mind-blowing prince. When a girl gets into a serious relationship, she starts dreaming about the coveted ring in a velvet case.
How do you make a proposal and make Ukrainian women for marriage to say “yes”? How to make this important moment unforgettable for yourself and your sweetheart? Let’s find out!
Make Sure It’s Time
Before getting married, start a conversation at least once about the future, living together, children, the ideal old age, and other serious topics. Suddenly, your girlfriend believes that marriage is an outdated value system and isn’t eager to get tied down. Most people have a clear idea when it’s time to move on to marriage. And even if you’re happy together, it doesn’t guarantee that your attitudes toward marriage are precisely the same.
As unrealistic as it sounds, most girls still called all movie scenarios too vulgar and hackneyed. So don’t skywrite “Marry me” and order a string quartet to her office.
Don’t Put a Ring in Food or Drinks
That’s probably the most common proposal format from the movies. And it’s too awful. First, alcohol and food can ruin the ring. Second, your lady might swallow it. Third, she might not finish eating or drinking. Fourth, who wants to wear a ring that’s just been bubbling over in sparkling wine or soaking in a cupcake? It’s sticky and smells like food.
Even if you’ve thought long and hard about how to propose, try not to let the girl guess that it’s all a pre-written script. Few people like to live according to a schedule or a plan, so most prefer romantic gestures to be an impulse of the soul rather than a clearly defined act.
Take a Knee
Some women might say that taking a knee is an archaism, which doesn’t seem sincere, but the proposal ritual involves this step. So, don’t be lazy to assume an appropriate pose before taking the ring out.
Get Engaged on Vacation
There has been a lot of debate about how big a proposal of marriage should be. But most girls would still like this event to be memorable and not pass in a fussy way. If you don’t want to screw it up, propose during a joint trip somewhere. Even if you ask her to marry you just for lunch, it will still be memorable because of the different atmosphere, circumstances, and people around.
Don’t Overdo with It
Still, even some extraverted ladies prefer the marriage proposal remain something personal rather than public. Therefore, a lot of Ukrainian women wouldn’t like too broad gestures in the spirit of calling her to marry on stage during a concert of her favorite band or in front of her colleagues and friends.
Don’t Combine This Moment with Other Celebration
Some men are sure to propose to a girl on someone’s wedding day is so romantic and cool. Don’t do that! Both the bride who just became a wife and the girl you’d like to see as your wife will be angry with you. You stole a celebration from one that she’s been planning for a long time, and you proposed to the other because you gave in to someone else’s wedding madness.
Get Her Parents’ Blessing
If your girlfriend has a close and trusting relationship with her parents, you can propose right in front of them. But if you doubt whether she will want to share such a moment with her dearest ones, it’s better to inform mom and dad about your plans in advance and make sure they agree.
