While there is no guaranteed way to make a guy propose to you, there are a few tips you can take advantage of to make your man fall in love with you and propose to you. He will show you how much he loves and asks you to marry him faster than you think.
Here are ten ways to make your man propose to you.
1. Be natural to him
Don’t try to be what you are not because he will still definitely find out one day. And when he does, he may not find you attractive like he used to anymore.
Men appreciate a woman who is authentic and not the acting one. Be as real as you can be to him. Let him see you for who you are.
Beauty may draw him to you, but when he finds out you’ve not been true to yourself and he has been deceived, the love will eventually fade away quickly. Always be comfortable in your skin.
2. Don’t be desperate
Take it slow. Do not move faster than your man in the relationship. Love matures over time and becomes the perfect bond of union.
If your man thinks you are desperate for the ring, he may not want to propose to you. He may think something is not right. Be patient with him.
You also show your man that you value him and your relationship by being patient.
When you make a sincere effort and are patient, but there is no meaningful growth in the relationship, it’s time to let him go, even without being desperate. A fully committed man will propose to you when the time is right. He doesn’t need a bit of pushing.

3. Don’t try to change your man if you want him to propose
You can’t force your man to accept your kind of person or what you want. For example, if he is someone who likes watching football or loves traveling and you don’t, try not to change him. If possible, learn to like what he likes, so both of you can be on the same page.
A man loves it when his woman shares the same interest as him. (in a positive way).

For example, if your man likes football and likes joining his friends to watch football matches, it won’t hurt to join him sometimes and show your support for his favorite team.
Just as you want someone you’ll be comfortable with, the same way, he wants someone he can be comfortable with—someone who truly fits his personality and your goals.
Both of you don’t have to agree on everything. It’s cool when you both have some similar shared interests. A man will be more likely to marry a woman who enjoys the same activities he enjoys.
4. Be appreciative
Who doesn’t want to be appreciated? I don’t think there’s anyone. Men absolutely love this; believe me. Be thankful for whatever he does for you, no matter how big or small—men like it when their women are very appreciative.
It will even compare them to do more. Show your man how much you appreciate him, and he will do the same. Not only the big things, including the small stuff.
Appreciating your man and recognizing what he does makes him feel good about what he’s doing. It makes him feel better about himself. Every man would want to propose to a woman who shows gratitude.
5. Being loyal to your man will make him propose
Show your man you are devoted even if he is not perfect. You have to be committed to him and don’t let him feel you chose him because of his physical appearance.
Don’t love him only because he is rich, tall, has six-packs, or looks handsome. No man wants to feel that you chose to be with him because he satisfies your need.
6. Introduce him to your family
Another essential aspect is introducing him to your loved ones, including your mom, dad, and siblings. Doing this will make him feel welcome. You should also meet his family and be comfortable with each other’s family.
Introduce him to your family after you have understood each other very well and if everything is going smoothly.
If his family likes you, they might even pressure him to propose to you and marry you. Sure, you heard that right.
7. Be someone your man can confide in
Make your man feel he can talk to you anytime he wants to talk. In other words, try to be understanding and don’t try to get upset if he says something insensitive.
But if he hurts your feelings, don’t be aggressive about it. Let him know how you feel but in a respectful way.
It will be best not to judge him for telling you the truth about something. This makes him build trust and confidence in you and constantly open up to you. If your man can confide in you, there is no reason why he won’t want to take things very seriously with you.
8. Look good at all times
You need to take good care of yourself to keep the fire burning. A man wants his woman to be confident and good-looking. So do not neglect yourself.
Always take care of yourself. Pursue your career goals and keep looking for ways to improve yourself.
Looking good includes everything from good hygiene, dressing, makeup, and how you take care of yourself. Your man will propose to you quickly to not lose a beautiful woman.
9. Show personal interest in him.
Always make an effort to know about his welfare and life in general. Ask him questions about his job, if he is facing any stress, his plans for the future, etc.
If you don’t ask him these questions, he wouldn’t want to bother you with them. He would like to solve his problems himself.
Showing genuine interest shows you are really interested in him personally. Every man wants to spend the rest of his life with a woman interested in him personally.
That is precisely the kind of woman a man would likely propose to. You can demonstrate such personal interest in a variety of ways. They are:
- Consider his viewpoint
- Help him progress
- Listen attentively
- Show interest from your heart and
- Give him practical assistance
Sometimes, you do not even have to say or do anything. If you genuinely care about your man, he will, without fail, be able to tell. Your attitude and facial expressions will reveal it.
10. Let him miss you
Do not be present 24/7 with him. Taking time apart is healthy for you guys so that both of you can also concentrate on other important stuff.
This makes both of you miss each other and want to be together again soon. It brings balance and respect to the relationship.
Another way to make him miss you is to be independent. He will not miss you if you are always available to him. Give him some space and create space for yourself too.
Also, try not to overdo it. Be very calculative. Trust me; your man will propose to you in other to make you available.
To wrap it up
Every one of us wants a long-lasting relationship. If possible, one that leads to successful marriage life. As long as you and your man communicate well, appreciate each other, and grow together, there’s no reason he wouldn’t want to be committed to you.
If you’ve tried everything and still he is not showing any sign of proposing, give him hints about moving. You can do this by calmly sharing your thoughts about changing locations to find better work opportunities or that you want a change of environment.
Tell him how far you’ve gone with finding a new place and what you think about this new location you found. The thought of you changing location to another city will incite him to propose if he wants to spend the rest of his life with you.
