My partner and I have been together for 3 years and counting, we absolutley adore each other, even when we piss each other off lol. We have been through so much together so I know that our relationship is built upon strong grounds. I can really see us being happy for the rest of our lives. He isn’t fussed about marriage although he does want to get married. I really want to spice it up just like our relationship is, so exciting and different so I wanted to be the one who asks him to marry me instead of him asking me. It feels right but I’m embarrassed that people might frown upon the fact that I am asking him. How should I do it? My best friends thinks I should write on the bathroom mirror with lipstick “Will you marry me?” but I’m not sure. Or edit my cover photo on fb, is me asking him to marry me right or wrong?

If you think this person is the one, then why not ask? And if it feels right then you should go with it. Just because it’s not traditional doesn’t mean it cannot be done. I definitely would not put it on Facebook.  It’s not personal and could potentially be taken lightly.  If you want it to be special make it something specific to each of you. Example, your first date took place a bowling alley, so go back to that exact place and pop the question there. Or maybe the first place that you realized you loved your partner- it could be in the middle of your living room- even though it’s not a “special” location it’s the thought and reasoning that means more. Either way just try and find a way to make it unique and personal to your relationship. Good luck & congrats!
