Proposing to the mother of your child can be very nerve wracking. You are finally ready to make that steady commitment and, like any boyfriend, you are about to profess your love to her. This is enough to send any man’s nerves over the edge. However, when children are involved, it can be extra scary. Luckily, your nerves can be eased by advanced planning and figuring out exactly how you are going to propose.
Before any planning on the actual proposal can begin, you need to figure out what ring you will use. Whether you are using a family heirloom or purchasing one of the brand new Tacori rings, you will want to put thought behind the ring. Try to get a ring that represents her and your love for her. A great way to do to this is to tailor the ring to her style. Remember she is the one that has to wear the ring and not you, so make it something that’ll remind her of your love but represent her style.
After the engagement ring has been decided on, you will need to figure out your proposal situation. The possibilities are endless when it comes to proposing. You can propose at a public place in front of hundreds of people or you can do it in a private setting, such as a restaurant or place that is special to the two of you.
One new way to propose to the mother of your child is to actually get the child involved in the proposal. Many women believe this shows your commitment to her and your child. One proposals idea involving children is creating a puzzle game that the mother and child are playing. When the puzzle is completed, it spells out “Will you Marry me?” Another idea is having your child “accidentally” find a ring and show it to the mother of your child, which starts up the proposal.
