As proposal experts here at Proposers HQ, we know how important it is to get everything about the proposal right. And that included asking her father’s (or mother’s) permission. Yup, it might be a scary prospect but we know from experience that one of the first questions a girl will ask her boyfriend after he’s proposed is : “OMG…did you ask my dad?”
So boys, here’s how we suggest you go about it:
Think about it – you are about to ask her dad if you can look after his daughter for the rest of her like. Most dad’s are overprotective and want the best for their daughters so make sure you tell him how much you love her and want to care for her. You need to prove to him that you will look after his daughter just as well as he has.
Bond with him first – if you know her dad loves a round of golf, then suggest meeting at the local golf club. Likewise, if he has a favourite restaurant, why not have your chat there. Picking the right venue to ask his permission is a must.
Now we’re not suggesting you should show up in a tux, but by presenting yourself in a formal manner you know your proposition will be taken seriously
Ultimately, confidence is key! Approach him with eye contact and seal the deal with a firm handshake! And remember – he’s likely to be as nervous as you are!
So he said yes? Next step is the real proposal and that’s where we come in! Here at The Proposers we can work with you to create your special lady a unique proposal just for her! From proposal ideas, to help choosing the engagement ring, we are here as your personal proposal experts!
