As far as i'm concerned, a lady can initiate an affair(serious or unserious affair), but to propose, hell NO.

chaircover you re right but it happens that way because our society sees it as an abomination if a girl proposes to the guy but to me i dont see anything there once the girl is truly in love with the guy mind you i dont mean "desperate to get married"
Re: Should Ladies Propose To Men? by mechengin(m): 12:11pm On Oct 09, 2008
i want to say that if a woman loves a guy for marriage, the woman should go ahead and propose to the guy.there is nothing wrong in that.the woman should do it in a Godly manner.

Are we all missing something here. wink

Women have been indirectly proposing to men for centuries (according to Nollywood anyway)

What do you think she is doing when comes over to your house, cooks you a good meal, puts on her shortest nightie, lies down in bed and the moment you try to touch her she says you can't do that until you pay her brideprice!

What do you think she is doing when she directly or indirectly asks you what are you doing with her and what are your plans for her?

What do you think she is doing when she travels miles just to go and "greet" to your mum or other important powerful ladies in your family? (note I said ladies because they are the ones who really have the power to give a Nay or Yea verdict on a girl their son/brother/cousin is currently dating.

In reality how many men get on one knee during afternoon tea at the Ritz & with an engagement ring hidden in the cream cake smiley
Perfecto!! Brilliant post so we still have intelligent women like these on Nairaland shocked

My thoughts exactly, as for me nothing wrong in that, I actually asked my hubby out on a date first time we met. I was 22 and not desperate but I really like him. Did all my investigation about him and I knew in my heart he was the one so why waste my time, He was 27 then, I walked up to him and asked him to give me a min of his time, funny enough, he asked me to stop once we got outside and asked me out before I completed my sentence. We got married 2 year after. It been 10 yrs and 2 beautiful boys now since we met and I still confirm I was right to ahve made my move.

So ladies u see what u like, u go for it, why waste time feeling like u can't talk when u know what u want.
Re: Should Ladies Propose To Men? by Nobody: 7:18pm On Jan 14, 2009
hey guys, there is absolutely nothing wrong with it. why kill urselves inside by not telling him u love him. it now depends on how the lady carries herself. i have experienced ladies woo me not once or twice and i've not cos of that seen them as cheap ladies. they no wat they want and went for it. its just unfortunate that ladies see the outside and not the inside.
Re: Should Ladies Propose To Men? by esilove(m): 7:30pm On Jan 14, 2009
GO FOR WHAT U LIKE. Its not a big deal after all u are going for what u like

Yes, ladies can propose to a man in the form of suggestions but not like a man will do his.

Ladies above 35years will surely consider this a valid option.
At least I know someone that claims her boyfriend is too timid for final comittment; yet he loves her very much.
If the guy no gree ask, the woman fit askgrin
else some affairs will be stuck in limbo. Guy no ask question, woman no fit reply

i strongly disagree.  why 35? should be learnt earlier. it is not about being timid but asking for what you want and i think women are better @ asking or making suggestions
