The idea is to do it yourself if you think it is worthwhile to do. Women nowadays look like feeling this way when it comes to proposals. Women of today are seen to be trending to get down on their knees in front of their boyfriends. This is because most women are said to be tired of waiting for they men to propose to them and so they are more than willing to take this matter of proposal into their own hands.
Considering that you will be happy to do this yourself so that the wedding bells will come sooner, and you are the type who is willing to knock tradition, then you can use some of these suggestions.
Your first tip is to make sure that your boyfriend is ready for marriage with you. It is not meant here to ask your boyfriend outright about your proposal as this could ruin the thrill of the move. It is better that you take notice of some signs that will give you hints to know if he is ready or not to settle down. How your boyfriend reacts to wedding and marriage in general, and if he seems positive about it, could be the biggest signs that all will go well once you make your proposal.
Note that in this case you do not need a ring since male engagement rings are not the in thing. You have an alternative to give to your man a diamond bracelet to take the place of a ring, or a less expensive like a demure pair of cufflinks. Whatever you will give, do not be so stressed about it when you propose since we are sure that it will put a smile on his face once you give him this surprise.
Another consideration to take when you make the proposal is the location. You should ask yourself if it is the ideal location, like does the place have extra meaning to both of you, like where you had your first date dinner in that restaurant, or the hotel where you went on your first anniversary weekend. Therefore, it means the place will bring a kind of sentiment so that when you get down on one knee, there is more meaning and special feeling that will be added to your proposal.
Because it is not a trend for women to propose to men, just expect some contradictions from some people like your nearest and dearest, who will tell that this is not the proper thing to do, and thus just wait for your boyfriend to be the one to propose.
