Sweaty palms, hands shaking, and dry throat, and that’s all before you even see your crush! Proposing a girl to be your girlfriend, can be a nerve-wracking experience, but it doesn’t have to be impossible. Moreover, it doesn’t have to be lame either. Women appreciate a little thought and creativity that goes into questions like these, so when you can, try to spice it up a little bit.
Ditch the old-fashioned notes or text messages and wow her with these ideas.
1. Couple It With an Event
Have a homecoming dance or prom coming up? There’s no better time to ask her to be your girlfriend than by asking her at the same time that you ask her to be your date for your special event.
Be sure to slip it in super sly in the question somehow, such as “Want to go to the dance…as my girlfriend?” She may do a double take, but if she says yes, you’ve got a double win on your hands.
2. Send Her a Singing Telegram
If you haven’t heard of these, you’re definitely in for a treat. Hire a singer – or ask one of your friends who enjoys singing at least – to show up at her house, ring the doorbell, and ask her to be your girlfriend. While it will most likely be a little embarrassing, the feeling that she’ll have of knowing that you went through all that trouble should leave her feeling overjoyed.
Want to step it up a notch? Send her a singing telegram at school (preferably between classes or during lunch) or have the singer dress up as a bear or something equally adorable.
3. Cook Her a Delicious Meal
Don’t just cook an ordinary meal, but instead find different foods that complement each other or go well together. As you are preparing this feast, think of things such as burgers and fries, pasta and sauce, etc. When you are telling her what you prepared, make sure you tell her that the items go really well together, just like you and her.
When you are looking for a great way to make her feel special, choosing food she loves will always be a great choice.
4. Give Her Food With A Message
By this we mean have a cake written on at your local bakery that tells her how much you care about her. This can be as simple as writing “Will you be my girlfriend?” to “I really like you”.
Either way, she will think you are as sweet as the cake you get to enjoy with her as soon as you get the reaction (we hope) that you are looking for.
5. Try the Old-School Love Letter Method
If you are feeling a little bit nervous about telling her how you feel face to face, it might be easier to tell her in other ways. Using text messages is not very personal and doesn’t take much time or effort to do. When you take the time to hand-write a love letter for her, she will find it adorable. You can end the letter with the traditional “Will you be my girlfriend? Check yes or no.” message at the end and you will know right away how she feels.
Music Can Really Help You On This
6. Use Your Musical Talents
Are you able to play guitar? Piano? Perhaps you have the voice of an angel? Regardless of your musical abilities, put them to use and sing her favorite song or even be creative and compose a new piece of art that tells her exactly how you feel about her.
Women love to feel special and using music is a great way to pull at her emotional heartstrings and win her over.
7. Surprise Her With A Song
Next time you are picking her up for a date or meeting her at a restaurant, have a sign in hand to knock her off her feet. The sign can say any sweet saying but a few examples would be “You are so beautiful”, “You are perfect”, or “Be my girl?”.
She will be caught off guard because it is different than the way you normally greet her and she will melt in the moment and be so happy that you went through the effort to tell her how you feel in public.
8. Sing to Her…and End It With the Big Question
By far, one of the most romantic ways to ask a girl to be your girlfriend is by writing her her very own love song. It doesn’t have to be anything elaborate (as a matter of fact, depending on the time available, you may want to keep it to less than a minute), but it’ll show her your sincerity and dedication. Make sure you end it with a line asking her to be your girlfriend; that’s sure to win her over.
Never written a song before? Never fear, Google is always there for you!
Asking a girl to be your girlfriend can be a scary thing to do, but trying different ways will help lighten the mood and take some pressure off of you. The more thought you put into it, the happier and luckier she will feel.
