Tips if you feel nervous about popping the question
The idea of proposing is pretty daunting, just anyone that’s done it before. Don’t let that alarm you though, it should make you nervous, it’s a big deal. Plus, if you’re nervous about something it shows you care – which you definitely should when it comes to proposing! So, what can you do if you’re feeling nervous about proposing?
Not to worry, we’ve got you covered. There is plenty you can do to help ease your nerves before getting down on one knee. Here are our top tips if you feel nervous about popping the question.
Know the answer
This may sound counter intuitive, but knowing your partner will say yes takes a lot of the pressure off. If you’re in a serious relationship, the topic of marriage should have been discussed at some point and hopefully, your significant other has indicated that they would indeed like to settle down with you. If you’re thinking about proposing, but haven’t had this chat, there is no time like the present.
Call in favours
Enlist the help of trusted friends. This could be for advice on the best choice from the range at Valentine Engagement Rings, ideas on the best way to propose, or as an extra pair of hands to help execute your plan. Make sure they’re someone who knows your partner well and who will keep your plans to themselves.
Focus on Personal, rather than Perfection
Despite what you may hear, the ‘perfect’ proposal doesn’t exist. Things might not go to plan and that’s ok! What you should focus on is making it personal and special. At the end of the day, the most important thing about proposing is the question you’re asking. Everything else is just the cherry on top.
Have a Plan B
If you’re worried your proposal might not go to plan, why not have a backup? If your plan A is outdoors, have an indoor backup in case the weather turns sour. If you think you might stumble on the words, have them written down somewhere. This way, should you slip up or get overcome by the moment, you can simply getsure to the words and offer the ring.
Proposing is scary – there’s no denying it. However, there is plenty you can do to ease your nerves! Follow these tips, and you’ll not only be calmer, but you’ll also be able to focus on the bigger picture and excitement of the occasion. Plan. Relax. Enjoy.
