A Leap Year only comes round once every 1461 days…girl’s all over the world are fed up with waiting for their bloke to get down on one knee. They have decided to pop that one question hoping their man would say….YES!
Hey girls…here are a few secret tips in preparing yourself for that important day in asking the most important question…on one knee…
…or not in some cases! It’s not recommended for a lady to get down on one knee, especially if you’re in stilettos. Women rarely look good in this position and he might get distracted by your cleverage!
Men love food and beer and the best way to win your man’s heart…cook him his favourite dinner even if it means running to McDonalds to get him a Big Mac with large fries!
DON’T stress him out by coming out with it. A hint over the washing up might do the trick, ‘wanna share these suds with me…FOREVER?’ rather than announcing his hand in marriage over the loud speaker of Asda’s! REMEMBER…its women who go to see those romantic movies…and not the men!
DO NOT ask him whilst he’s watching the footie! Wait until his team wins the game and there’s more chance of him saying yes.
Hold up a piece of card that says ‘Will you marry me?’ on it, and ask him to read it out loud to you. Then say, ‘Why, I’d be delighted.’
Final sneaky tip. A man was expected to pay a penalty, if he refused a marriage proposal from a women on a Leap Year! This can range from a simple kiss to a silk gown or even money! During the Middle Ages there were laws governing this tradition (yes, it was a real law!). If he says no you can spend the rest of the day shopping…
If you’re dreaming of diamond rings and white meringue gowns, take the plunge and do it yourself and propose…OR face another agonising 4 years until the next Leap Year!
