Surprise proposal

While most girls want their man to plan a grand surprise proposal for them, there are some exceptions too. Handling a surprise isn’t everyone's cup of tea. Instead of getting surprised and gaiety, they might get shocked and irritated. This mostly happens when the other person is not really keen to take this relationship forward. Therefore, it is better that you plan a surprise only when you are 200% sure about your partner’s feelings.

Proposing too early

Sometimes people get over-excited about taking the relationship to the next level in the initial phase only. Similarly, there are people who are too quick to propose and express their love for the other person. This is definitely going to be a disaster. It is always best to first know the person, their likes/dislikes, hobbies, favorites, etc. Understand them before exposing your feeling and emotions to them. Early proposals have higher chances of rejection.

Proposing too late

If the early proposal is disastrous, delayed proposals are no less. Taking too long to propose your partner is a mistake that you need to avoid. Knowing someone is important but that doesn’t mean that you are taking years to pop the big question. The other person might presume this to be your disinterest or unwillingness to take the relationship forward. Would you want your partner to think that or you just want to take things ahead by proposing on time, the choice is yours.


Kissing while proposing

Well, we see people kissing each other after a proposal but that isn’t necessary. Any kind of inappropriate physical contact needs to be avoided during or after proposing. This moment is all about cherishing your emotions. Keep other things like hug or kiss for later. Though, you may if your partner is willing to do so.
