How to propose to my girlfriend if she doesn't want to get engaged?

Answer from our relationship expert:

Proposing marriage is a significant milestone in a relationship, but it's essential to respect your partner's feelings and timeline. If your girlfriend isn't ready for marriage, it's important to have an open and honest conversation about your future together. Start by expressing your love and commitment to your partner, and then gently broach the topic of marriage. Listen to her concerns and reservations without judgment, and validate her feelings. It's possible that she may have specific reasons for not wanting to get engaged at this time, such as personal or professional goals, or fears about commitment. Take the time to understand her perspective and reassure her that you're committed to supporting her regardless of the outcome. If marriage isn't currently on the table, consider discussing alternative ways to deepen your commitment and strengthen your bond as a couple. This could include exploring options such as cohabitation, joint finances, or symbolic gestures of commitment. Ultimately, the most important thing is to prioritize open communication and mutual respect in navigating this important decision together.
