    Has anyone ever asked their boyfriend to marry them? 17th Jun 19 at 9:22 AM
    I've been with my boyfriend for nearly 9 years now and we have a house together.

    I turned 30 the other week and as a birthday treat my BF took me away for the weekend.

    I was abosultely certain he was going to propose, all the signs were there. But in the end he didn't.

    He's always joked saying 'why don't you ask me' and things like that. Now i'm seriously considering it.

    Has anyone ever done this?

    Well thanks for that.

    But I was actually looking for input from someone who had done it themselves.

    No need for the sarcasm really is there?

    I wouldn't know, as it wasn't sarcasm.

    Plenty of my friends have done it Some successfully, some not.

    I'm male but if I may give you a male's opinion - my wife (and others) kept dropping hints about when we were going to get married but I kept putting it off because I didn't want it to seem that I was only proposing because I was being asked to.

    In the end, I proposed because I wanted to and because I love her, not because I felt I needed to.

    What input do you need?

    Well as its not common for the woman to ask the man, I just wanted to know who else might have done it.
