Whilst the leap year is fantastic if you were born on this day... after all you only have a birthday once every 4 years which technically makes you 'younger'! This date for other ladies in a long term relationship means our manz might expect us to propose!
|Feisty Reds - not afraid of|
taking the leap!
Now, I'm old skool & I can't imagine proposing to guy .....after all does this mean I don't get something sparkly in a Cartier box & who gets to wear the dress on the day now the roles have been reversed?
But if your gonna propose to the manz in your life how do you do it?
To be honest... I have absolutely no idea! So I asked a couple of women what would they do if they had to propose?....
Liz "My boyfriend is mad for Manchester United football team. I guess I would try & get one of the team to propose for me.... I think this is the only way he would accept!"
|I'll take the ring minus the proposal!|
Jackie* "He proposed a few years ago & I said 'no' as I felt it was too soon, so this year I'm gonna propose to him. I'm going all out for the proposal - he thinks we're going to a function on the 29th but I've booked out our favourite restaurant & his friends & family know! After I've popped the question they will all come out the back & it will turn into our engagement party. I am 100% certain he will say 'yes' that's why I've done it this way. Wish me luck!"
|Is that message for me??!|
Louise "I'd keep it simple, we have a message board at home which we leave notes on - normally things like phone messages or shopping lists. I would simply leave a note saying 'Will you marry me? PS we need milk!!"
I loved the idea's from the ladies, so thank you all the replies sent in. I guess what I got from most of the replies was that us gals still think its traditional for the guy to ask regardless of whether its a leap year or not.... so guys don't hold yer breath!
