Steve Paska waited two weeks for Washington's famously fickle cherry blossoms to emerge, then spent two hours searching for the perfect spot beneath the canopy of fluff. He lured his girlfriend there on the pretext of buying a painting of the blooms. Then he surprised her by dropping to one knee and proposing.

They like being proposed to. Next stupid question?
Because the number of milliseconds a man hesitated to reply would be held against him for years, measured against some intangible, ephemeral standard that might change even while the measurement was taking place. And if the result was unsatisfactory from the woman’s standpoint, for whatever reason, there would in most cases never be a way around it.
Men and women are different regardless of what the leftist want.
It’s not okay. A real woman wants a real man.
they don’t propose, but they sure can pressure you to propose!
Where were you when I was 16 and needed advice about women?
In my experience, and experience of other males friends, the females indirectly hint at these subjects. Like talking about how friends of hers are getting married, and how happy the couple are together.
or, talk about some friend of hers who is having a baby, and how nice that is. And how her friend is lucky to have a wonderful man, but that her friend is not as lucky as she herself is to have YOU.
The females dance around these subjects if they are interested in marriage, and then you are supposed to pick up on it and take things from there. They just don’t want to do the asking themselves.
Maybe they’re no more interested in getting married than men are.
I bet Michelle Obama did the proposing... Or demanding.
My wife proposed to me, and I’m pretty sure she’s a real woman and I’m a real man.
Well, anecdotal evidence is that many young career oriented women today, don’t even want to think about marriage until more established on career paths. They will still have boyfriends and be involved with someone, but, only if they can fit him into her career lifestyle. So, he’s got to understand when she needs to work late, or have to travel for business.
Because they might get turned down.
I’ve been asked a couple of times - the answer was no.
It took me about 40 years to develop the theory and the lack of practice. That was about 20 years ago.
I proposed to my husband. Well, not really proposed, but let it be known that I wasn’t going to stick around for another year if the relationship wasn’t going to go in that direction and pretty soon (we’d been dating for 3 years). He got the hint.
I’m quite sure there is a lot of that type of ‘proposing’ that goes on.
i would not call that a proposal... i guess a proposal in a round-a-bout way...
IMO women are afraid to find out what men really think about their relationship.
...I know women don't understand men. I know there are women looking at me right now, wondering "what goes on in that little brain of his? I betcha I could manipulate that brain." I betcha you could.
I betcha women would like to know what men really think... the truth, the honest truth. You wanna know what men are really thinking? 'Cause I could tell you. Would you like to know? Alright, I'll tell you.
We're not thinking anything. We're just walking around, looking around. This is the only natural inclination of men. To just kinda check stuff out.
We work because they force us to, but other than that, this is really the only thing we wanna do. We like women, we want women. But that's pretty much as far as we've thought. That's why we're honking car horns, yelling from construction sites...these are the best ideas we've had so far.
