Propose With Meaning And Seriousness

Jan 20, 2008
Before the marriage comes the wedding. Before the wedding comes the engagement, and before that, the all-important proposal. Men are often expected to think up the most romantic ways to propose as though this gesture alone would determine her answer. Though it's not the ultimate deciding factor, it does play a huge part, so if you're hard-pressed for romantic ways to propose, read on.

This is how many guys do it. Not that it's a bad thing. There's nothing wrong with wanting to do things the classic way--a romantic dinner for two at your favorite restaurant. In fact, there is such an elegance and timelessness to it that only enhances the mood of the occasion.

You might even enlist the help of the maitre d' should you decide on something a bit more creative, like having the ring in her champagne glass or embedded in her dessert. If it's a Chinese restaurant, maybe you could pop the question by way of fortune cookie.

Once she's realized what's going on, get down on one knee, look her straight in the eyes, tell her there's no one else you'd rather spend the rest of your life with than her, and then ask her the big question. Simple, but romantic.

If you are absolutely sure that she will say "yes," a public proposal is one of the most romantic ways to propose that will surely be one for the books. Do not attempt this if you feel that your partner is still unsure. With a public proposal, she may feel that you are pressing the issue and she might feel "pressured" to say yes.

However, if all that she's waiting for is for you to pop the question, a public proposal - in a theater, a concert, a baseball game or in the middle of a huge family affair with the people that you both love - will do the trick; and it will be a moment that she can treasure forever!

Thinking of unique and romantic ways to propose is important because the tale will surely be told from generation to generation. From something as grand as "painting" your proposal in the sky to something as simple as getting down on your knees while strolling in the park - the key is to come up with a unique way to ask the question during the most unexpected time and her heartfelt answer will take care of the rest.

Do not limit yourself to these suggestions as there are as many romantic ways to propose as there are people waiting to get hitched. Whatever you decide upon, just make sure it'll be one truly memorable experience not only for her, but for you as well.

Destructive gossip in families is rooted in childhood hurts and resentments. A child who feels neglected, who is the family "scapegoat", who has a sibling or siblings who seem to outshine him or her--that child is the one who often carries grudges into adulthood. That child tries everything in his or her power to discredit the brother(s) or sister(s) whose "very presence" seemed to steal his or her "just desserts."

Let's call the gossiper Flo. Flo's anger is intense and is misdirected. The victim of destructive gossip, Mo, was a child at the same time as Flo. Mo didn't do anything intentionally to hurt Flo. It is the parents who are responsible for a lopsided social order in families; it is the parents who choose to play favorites. The victim of destructive gossip is often paying for the sins of the parents. The sentence lasts a lifetime.
