Tips For Women Proposing To Men In 2024

The world is very progressive nowadays and that means we can all flip the script when it comes to the status quo. Women proposing to men is still something that’s perhaps not done as often as it could or should be.


If you’re feeling confident and ready for a proposal, why not propose to your significant other? When the shoe is on the other foot, it can be quite nerve-wracking to propose but never fear, here are some tips for those looking to propose in 2024.


Know your partner’s stance on marriage

Before you propose, it’s important that your partner’s stance on marriage aligns with your own. You might be ready for marriage, but are you? It’s important to know their opinion on marriage as unbeknownst to you, they might not want to get married.


That might be a revelation that changes everything within your relationship, to the point where you might want to break up with them. However, it might not come to that and you realize that you both want the same thing. Communication is highly important, especially when it comes to taking such a big next step in your relationship, so be sure to ask them.

Go ring shopping with a friend of theirs

What often remains the same, regardless of how someone proposes to another, a ring is a gift that’s given in exchange. With that being said, you’ll want to approach ring shopping by doing so with a friend of your partner’s. Discover unique men’s engagement rings by shopping online and offline.


It’s good to compare any rings you’re looking at because there are plenty of options available out there. You might find a more affordable option elsewhere if you’re limited on your budget.

Choose a location that matters

The location matters when it comes to your proposal. Ideally, you want it to be meaningful to both you and your partner. However, some people will consider the location to be more of the cherry on top of the cake.


For example, you might want to propose during an anniversary trip abroad on vacation. 

Practice your speech

Do you have any idea what you’d like to say to your loved one when it comes to proposing? Some just keep it simple with ‘marry me?’. Others might go into a lengthy monologue – there’s really no right or wrong way to go about it.


Make sure you’re practicing whatever speech or a few words you want to say. That way, you’re less likely to buckle under the nerves in the moment.

Go into it with confidence

A proposal is not an easy decision to make, let alone, to actually go through and do it. Confidence is key. Of course, nerves are to be expected but if you’re feeling confident, it can make all the difference when it comes to being in the moment and plucking up the courage to ask.


Ultimately, proposing, although nerve-racking should feel like the right thing to do. Use these tips to ensure your proposal goes smoothly.
