to Ask Someone to Be Your Boyfriend
You haven't invited him to meet
your family yet, but he certainly
is not the guy your mother warned
you about. He is someone special
in your life, and you're already
starting to think of him as a boyfriend.
It's time to tell him what he means
to you and ask him if he wants to
explore being more than your trusty
Before Your Proposal
1. Think about whether you are willing
to stay together even if he only
wants to keep your involvement casual.
2. Consider the possibility that
he is looking for something even
more serious than what you have
3. Have some idea of what you're
looking for before you ask, so that
you can stay on task.
4. Find a special time and place
for this important question. Make
a date to go somewhere private and
comfortable for both of you.
Professing Your Love - or Strong
1. Tell him that you feel really
good about the time that you spend
together, and that you find yourself
growing closer to him.
2. Find out how he feels about your
dating relationship and what direction
he sees it taking.
3. Share your interest in moving
from going out together to something
4. Ask him to be your boyfriend,
and explain what that means to you
and how you believe that would strengthen
you as a couple.
5. Discuss what kind of commitment
each of you is ready to make to
the other. How will your dating
relationship change? Are you agreeing
to see each other exclusively, if
you aren't already? Will you live
together? Do you simply want to
acknowledge that you have reached
the next stage of the relationship?
Celebrating or Waiting
1. Relax in the arms of your new
boyfriend, if he accepts.
2. Give him some time to think about
what he wants now if he cannot commit.
3. Reconsider your needs, and whether
they can still be met, if he says
that things have been going so well
that he doesn't want to risk changing
4. Be open and honest about your
excitement, disappointment or concern
related to his response.
5. Allow for the possibility that
either of you might change your
Timing is everything. Ask your beau
to be your boyfriend when it feels
right, not when you reach your 21st
date or third month of spending
time together. Remember that if
you care enough about him to seek
more commitment, then you might
want to continue enjoying what you
have now and see how it grows over
Coercion, ultimatums or other forms
of pressure may get you what you
want in the short run, but they
typically do not lead to long-lasting
The middleman by Ilona
Even though it may seem easier to
you, don't have a friend ask the
question for you. When a guy is
put in this position, he might feel
awkward and not be totally honest
with him or her.
How to get a date by Kitty
Ask him what he is doing on the
day that you plan to go. Start to
hint that you want to go out together
by asking whether he likes the ideas
you might have about where to go.
Simply say "I was just wondering
if you would like to go to ____
on ____?" When he says yes,
simply ask whether he would call
this a date or a trip out with a
friend. After he answers, tell him
how you see it. Be honest!
