Should a Woman Ever Propose to a Man?

Once upon a time it was taboo for a young woman to ask a man out on a date. Now it’s commonplace. But is it acceptable for a woman to propose to a man? After all, this is the 21st Century.

  1. Proposal are a formality when the situation is mutually understood. Men are seen as the ‘aggressors’ in relationships. Why shouldn’t women put their self-esteem on the line and risk a soul crushing rejection?

  2. Ideally, the man should propose. But I think that if a woman is inclined to pester a man to pop the question, and grows increasingly frustrated and angry with him over the course of years because he hasn’t yet, proposing instead is a better option. If you’re going to take the role of pursuer, you might as well be active and forthright about it, rather than passive agressive. So you just ask, put the matter squarely in the guy’s court and in short order the matter is settled.

  3. If it’s now okay for a woman to propose to a woman (and it is), how could it not be okay to propose to a man? So my anser is yes, it’s okay.
