i wanted to ask a question, but here is some info to go with it.
my best friend and I have known each other for almost five years( he was my first boyfriend too). we dated occassionally. we never stayed together because it scared us(we figure we would get married and we felt we were too young for that then.) he has been awesome dealing with my having a kid. i know we are supposed to be together. We discuss getting married and raising my son together. my question is how do you propose to your best friend? they know you too well to know when your up to something.Any suggestions?

ooooh!! /em starts wracking brain for ideas....

Is he planning on being an active male figure in your child's life? Maybe on Father's Day, a card with the proposal inside?

with some time, i might be able to come up with more ideas

well I thought father's day too, but I can't figure out how to suprise him. We've talked about how i'd liked to be proposed ,so i asked him how he would like it? He had a long list...Exciting romantic suprising heartfelt, long speech, ask his parents for permission and ooh so much more. See Friends expect alot from you. He is a great guy. Never has turned his back on me once. He is one of those guys that you want in your life either as a boyfriend or a friend. Life without him would **** . He is totally opposite of my son's dad. he loves my son more, pays more attention to him, and he treats me with lots of respect. Plus he is a subborn as a mule.(my favorite trait about him) Well if you guys have anymore tips it would be appreciated. Thanks

Congrats to you and your son. You never mentioned that you were thinking about getting married or proposing for that matter. What a wonderful surprise...

Good Luck to you....and God Bless!

Hi, why does it have to a special day to propose marriage to someone, I think the moment you know you want to spend your life with that person is the best time to ask them to marry you. If he loves you truly, I don't think asking him on fathers day or on today would make his decision to marry you and different. If he thinks you're half as special as you think he is then you have nothing to worry about. Good luck!!
