Five Tips to Propose Him This Valentine

Sometimes guys are too shy to express their feelings, especially when they are pretty conservative with love and relationships. In such a case, it’s the girl who has to take the first step to convey her feelings which are most probably similar to the guy. On the contrary, there are times when a girl is totally confused whether the guy she likes, likes her too. If she has failed to figure that out, then there is no other option but to propose the guy and wait for his reply. But before the reply comes your way, you can make your proposal look incredible and so amazing, that the guy is flabbergasted and falls for her.

To make your proposal more interesting, here are five tips to propose him:

1. Time to Do Something New

What is new? It’s something that you haven’t tried. Go out to enjoy some adventure sports and as and when you find the most appropriate time to disclose your emotions, just lay it out and surprise him. It will catch him off guard and of-course he was not expecting this, so you can give him a nice hug and tell him to take it slow, just in case he is too shocked!

2. Cook A Special Dish for Him

We all enjoy tasty and mouthwatering food and especially the ones coming from our lover. If you really wish to surprise your partner and propose him, then make it look like a cherry on the cake after an incredible dinner. If you don’t know to cook, then sorry to say, YOU NEED TO LEARN! Cooking is really important, it comes really handy for both, girls as well as boys and without a doubt, girls love to eat the food cooked by him as much as guys love to eat the food cooked by her.

3. An Honest Conversation

On a fine evening, sit next to him like you usually do and hold his hand while you look up into his eyes.   Make it look like any other conversation, but make sure your eyes are constantly looking at his and that your heart, mind and soul are all focused on him. Tell him what you feel about him, tell him why you like him, tell him what excites you about him and tell him why you love him before you finally take the step to come closer to him and put your heart out with those three most important words ever exchanged between two lovers.

4. His Hobbies

What are his hobbies? Does he love mountaineering? Or simply walking on the beach. Just as you enroll into some of his hobbies with him, take some time to think of the most beautiful moment in those activities. Just when you find that moment, you know what to do next.

5. On a Date

Not as simple as it may seem, even though the simpler the better. Proposing on a date has always been the most common one and I won’t say it has lost its charm, but yes, if you really wish to propose her on a date, you might have to plan the proposal with more intensity because to make things look unique, all you need is the mixture of proper ingredients.
