Hi my name is Reka Morvay, I'm a psychologist, and I'm going to talk to you about what makes a man propose. What makes a man propose is the question on the minds of lots of women who would like their man to propose. And, really some of it has to do with the situation. So, obviously a man has to feel that he is in that stage of life where he's ready to settle down, and ready to make that kind of a commitment. And, what you can do as the partner in the situation is to be really clear on your goals. And if a marriage, or a relationship that leads to a marriage is what you are looking for, then you really need to be clear on that with your man. So that he understands that that, that's where you're going and that's what you want, that's your goal. And so that you can discuss whether your goals are compatible. Because somebody who is still into partying, and still into one-night stands, and going out to meet lots of new women, he's not going to be ready to settle, whether or not you get him to propose to you through some kind of trick. So the question is, to coordinate your needs. To find somebody who is in the same stage of life where they are looking for a more settled relationship. And the only thing that you can do to facilitate this, to make this happen, is to be really forward about what you want. You don't have to be pushy, you don't have to be aggressive about it, but you do have to be forthright. And you have to come out and be able to own your needs, and be able to say, "I am looking for a settled relationship. This is what I want, and if you can't give me this kind of relationship then maybe our relationship will not work out." So, there is a fine balance between being overly aggressive and overly pushy and clingy to the point of madness, and, and between being too shy and, and waiting for the man to come out and try to guess what kind of relationship that you want. So, there is a, there's a place here, to be really honest and really be able to come out and say what it is that you need from this man and from this relationship.
