This one has me worried people. I'm seriously thinking of popping the question, but I have to be honest. I'm **** scared basically. What will she say? Is it really the right thing to do? I'm looking to all you dreamy youngsters out there who still have that perfect day pictured in your mind. Just how do you think it should be done? More importantly when do you know if you're ready? Someone once told me that if you had to ask yourself if it was time, then clearly it wasn't time. But I'm not even sure if this makes sense now. Help me please. One confused Australian bloke.

OK I'm not good at explaining this stuff but here goes:

If you are prepared to spend the rest of your life with her then what difference will it makes if you propoe now or if you propose in the future (even if the fture is only say, in couple of months time)?

Good Luck whatever you decide to do

what would getting engaged do? are you really in any rush? ok so this si the girl you love and want to spend the rest of your life with, you know that, i presume she does- is going through the angst of getting engaged at 22/23 (can't be bothered seeing how old you are, i just know it's something like that) really worth it? this is just my opinion, but would you not prefer to get engaged once you've finished uni and have some kinda direction as to where you're both going?

but in the end, if you do decide to go for it, make sure you get her a pretty ring

Just ask her, the result will be the same if you spend hours agonising over it or not, as MUssolini said "think with your blood", do what feels right.

I'd say go for it too! aww - a wedding!

as for being a dreamy youngster - i don't really know - don't think i'd care HOW you proposed - just the fact that someone was propsoing to me would be GREAT! (well depends who it is - but long-term bf) then i'd defo be over the moon! aww - what a lucky girl she is

I think it all depends on the situation. If you have lived withed your partner for a year or so I think you would get to see whether marriage would work. If you dont live with your partner than that is entrirely different.

Take me for example, I've been going out with my girlfriend for about two years. Although we did live together sort of (we went to boarding school) we could have breaks from each other. Now, we have left school are semi living together which is really weird and when I go to university later this year we are going to be living together full time. Now, i'm not thinking of proposing but I know if we survive through my time at Uni, I would.

If it's romantic, it will make her heart melt and she'll probaly say yes if she feels the same. It's every girls dream to be proposed to in a sweet romantic way.

Good luck!
