7.  I’m tired of waiting for him to make his move.  Is it really acceptable for me to pop the question?

I’m not a woman who’s ever fantasized about planning my fairytale wedding or romantic honeymoon, but ironically for that reason, I refuse to be the one to propose.  I feel like I’m pretty independent and liberal and don’t ask for anything over-romanticized.  So the least a man can do for me is put a little effort into asking for my hand.  I personally wouldn’t feel comfortable popping the question, but admittedly some men need a little push and if you feel like you’ve found the man you want to share your world with forever, then why not?  The only thing I suggest is that you ask for the right reasons.  Don’t rush a marriage because all of your friends are getting married, or you want a wedding more than an actual marriage.  And of course if you’re getting on bended knee, it’s your responsibility to buy him a ring.
