Love Proposal: Boy or Girl- Who Should Go First?

Love is an instinct feeling. No one can guess when you dive into this feeling other than you.  So, you know better the ripe time of making love proposal.  There is an ongoing dispute with the issue like who should go first for love proposal.  Everyone has his or her own logics and arguments. Let’s see who should, in fact, go first for love proposal.

Steve Paska once conducted a survey in America to find out why the women don’t propose their men. A mixed but interesting response was found in the study.

For example, half of single American women think that they hope to propose their men.

Adding to, ¾ of Americans think women proposing as ‘fine and sound’ in theory.

Women can propose their men and there is nothing wrong with that- believes the Rev. Joel Stafford of Patton, Missouri.

But, what happens in real? In reality, it is found that only 5% of married women did propose their partners. [1]

This is what a survey says about. Now, let’s see why a girl should propose a girl.

7. To Establishment

They want to make an establishment in life first and then have a family.

8. To Make Her Reliable

So, What Do We Think- Who Should Go First for Lover Proposal?

We have conducted a short survey on Facebook to find out what is really happening in the real world. We had 5 basic questions of which two of them were:

Who did propose in your relationship?

If it was not you, why did not you make the proposal?

A decent number of people participated in the survey. Among them, 63% people said that it was the guy who made the first love proposal. As the reasons the participants’ opinions were like:

Man Woman
I wanted to let her know that I loved her I was not ready
I knew, she would not propose anymore I felt shy and nervous
No reason. I knew I had to I waited for him to propose
To grab her ASAP in my love I afraid, if he underestimates me


Considering the facts, real life scenario, study, research and survey, I think that- the guys should go first with a love proposal to their girls they love.

By the time, you have enough reasons at hand to decide whether you will go or not. But, think yourself. Understand your heart. Value your emotions and feelings. These will lead you what you actually should do.

However, for a better understating, we are proving here some ‘think-rat’ that will help you out to find the solution.

Think- Rat

Think about the following questions below. Find and write the answer on a paper.

  1. Am I jealous finding him/her with any other guy or girl? Yes/No
  2. Do I miss her/his presence in me? Yes/No
  3. Do I want to get him/her in my life? Yes/No
  4. Do I feel better with her/him? Yes/No
  5. Do I care about my heart? Yes/ No

Now, count the answer; how many ‘Yes’ and how many ‘No’. If the number of ‘yes’ is more than the number of ‘no’, it means that you are in love with him or her. So, take the stance. Steer your heart to have a better, happy and lovely life. Just go and propose your girl/ guy.

Best of Luck for Your Love Proposal.
