Four ways to get him to propose to you

10 June 2015, 11:10 Winnie Mwirikia

It is obvious that our society is not ready for women who take charge of their relationships. Women can't propose to their lovers but all they can do is to wait, and women who have been bold enough to propose have been stereotyped and culturally crucified.

Most ladies have been forced to accept every decision or move the man makes even if it is stupid or makes them feel inferior. You find yourself in a position where you cannot make viable decisions regarding the future of your relationship. You have to love and wait for your man to propose even if it takes 15 years!

In such a situation, you get into a waiting situation where you commit, fall in love emotionally and physically and choose a man who is stuck to a bachelor lifestyle and unwilling to commit to marriage. If you find yourself in a situation where you don’t see a proposal coming, here are four ways you can approach the situation and probably make him propose to you.

Give hints

Dropping hints that he can pick and act on or even make a comment. For instance 'I wish I could wake up beside u every day,' 'You're the last person I want to have sex with,' ‘Our children will be so hot.’ Men react to hints in different ways as personalities differ, but any man who continuously ignores or has deaf ears to hints is only having a good time with you and will never consider you as his better half.

Indirect pressure

Most men have that one person they hold in high regard- a mom, sister or even an aunt. These people can sometimes serve as a bridge and sway him to start thinking about marriage.


This is a risky way but works when done objectively with no emotions or sentiments. It involves a hard talk; the assumption is that you and your partner are two adults who can discuss the status of your relationship, your goals and the potentials. Speaking the truth that hurts can help you figure out his intentions for the relationship. Although it may make you feel desperate or too needy, it is worth giving it a try. There comes a time where you stop thinking about what others think about you but what you think about your own self.


Some ladies have been in or are currently in relationships for more than five years and they still don't know what their man is going to do or what his intentions are. Sometimes the best approach is purging the relationship because men feel comfortable, take you for granted when they believe they have you 100% so if you leave or breakup with him, he might realize what he misses and come back or even give you an opportunity to move on with your life instead of wasting your time.

In my own opinion, no relationship should last more than four years without a commitment.
