What Phrases Not To Use…

Posted by Meaghan Cody, Dallas

As cliché as it sounds, all girls wait for that moment when their man goes down on one knee and pulls out a ring. There are a few ways that you could mess this up, one being the words that you say. I have come across a few phrases that I don’t think would go over so well with your lady.

1. “Do you wanna?” – First of all that is awful grammar… Second of all, do I WANNA what? Do I WANNA go to Starbucks? Sure! Do I WANNA spend the rest of my life with you? Not if you are asking like that.

2. “How about it?” – Again, how about what? Be clear with what you are asking, that way you come across that you are confident in what you are asking, like spending the rest of your life with someone.

3. “My mom thinks it’s time we made this legal” – Your MOM? I personally would prefer for my future mother-in-law not to be the one to initiate my marriage proposal. Will she also initiate when it is time for us to have children? No thank you!

4. “Do you think we should get married?” – Going back to phrase number 2, be confident in what you are asking. You should know whether or not you want to marry someone before you ask. You either want to spend the rest of your life with them or not…. If you aren’t sure, you have bigger problems and should be seeking other blogs than this one.

5. Nothing at all – Be sure to say something. Even if all you say is “Will you marry me?”, that will be enough.
