How You Can Get Your Man to Finally Pop the Question

September 28, 2022

Nigerian men can be very clueless. So even if they love you, they may be slow to pop the question. But in a time where the TL is full of I-said-yesses, you can’t allow yourself to be caught slacking. If you do the things on this list, we promise your man will give you the ring in no time.

Become his chef 

Men love food, and since people keep saying the way to a man’s heart is his stomach, you might as well start there. 

Go through his mum 

Just sit his mother down for a woman-to-woman chat. Because what happened to women supporting women? Doesn’t she want grandkids? Wouldn’t she want her son to stop fornicating and actually “do what’s right”? 

Challenge him to a drinking competition 

You’re probably wondering how this would help, but hear us out. You won’t only get the chance to prove that you can hold your liquor, but you can also make a bet where the loser has to propose. 

Create a presentation to convince him

There are few things more convincing than colourful, well-detailed, properly researched presentation slides. Prove to your boyfriend that you’re serious about your future by telling him a hundred and one reasons why he needs to get married to you asap. 

Hire people to break one of his knees

Maybe he was shy about going on one knee before, but now you’ve solved that. So all he has to do is get the ring. 

Threaten to leak his nudes 

Even though this looks bad, it’s not. You’re just forcing him to do what’s best for himself cause if he didn’t love you, why would he still be dating you? 

Start acting like you’re engaged 

If people can say they “found” themselves in relationships, why can’t it work for marriage? Just change your relationship status to “engaged” on all your social media accounts, and start calling him your fiancé.

Tell him someone else wants to propose

You’re a hot babe. You can’t waste your time with him when you have others begging you to marry them. You know men have big egos — he’ll not just propose, he’ll go ahead and plan the wedding for that weekend. 

Propose to him 

If you’ve tried all these things and he’s still trying to feign ignorance, just set the proposal up and send him the address with the ring you picked out. Problem solved.
