How To Get A Man To Propose In 20 Minutes

To be a successful matchmaker you certainly don’t have to be married or in a relationship, but it does helps if you are able to take your own advice. The advice that I have given in this column, including my recent article on mastering the art of seduction, are techniques that I have personally found success with.

In fact, they worked so well for me that my husband proposed to me within 20 minutes of us meeting each other! Here’s how it happened.

I got married for the first time when I was very young. We eventually ended up getting divorced, and I shifted my career from social work to matchmaking. A few years later, once my matchmaking company was up and running, I knew I was ready to get married again. Having made this decision, my love goggles were on. I was super friendly everywhere I went, kept my eyes open for opportunity, and was confident with who I was and what I was looking for.

A week after I made this important decision, I stopped by a local coffee shop with a friend after seeing a band play. Pretty immediately I spotted a guy across the room that I thought was really attractive. He was wearing a dapper 1940s get up, so I yelled over to him, “Hey 1940s dude! What are you eating?”

Now, I know not everyone would be comfortable yelling across the room like that, but that’s my personality: I am extremely friendly and outgoing. Whatever your style is you can achieve this same effect, even if it is just with a long smile in their direction, or a wave hello.

After I got his attention, it seemed like he was super excited that I had reached out to him. He asked me right away to sit down with him, and of course, I did. At this point in the story I should also mention that I do have a skill for choosing nice guys that are capable of healthy relationships. It is really important to master the skill of being able to spot a nice guy. You do not want to be blinded by a player. No matter how you approach a player (someone not interested in commitment), you won’t be able to turn their marriage light on in 20 minutes.
