Well, I actually was waiting for my Fiance to ask my dad, and he didn’t until the night after we were engaged. We had a nice dinner at my parents’, and he pulled my dad aside and said he wanted to pop the question when he did, and didn’t have time to catch my dad. So he asked permission there. Easy peasy!

I don’t think all men ask the woman’s father…it’s really old fashioned, and he may have just not known to do it! 

He’ll do it when he’s ready ๐Ÿ™‚ no worries!

awww. I’m sorry you’re having a rough time, but I’m glad you got the opportunity to talk to him about it!

I actually told my SO NOT to ask my Dad. My father is a little bit of a jerk (in a way where he thinks he’s being totally funny. NOT the case!), and though he like SO, also likes to mess with guys his daughters are dating. He told my brother in law who lived out of state that he “needed to think about it” and then became unreachable by phone for nearly a month. Then when my brother in law finally saw him again and brought it up my dad was like “ooooh riighhht!! I thought I told you that was fine. yeah sure.” I told my SO, “don’t let that happen to you. I promise, my dad will just be stoked that his last single daughter isn’t going to be shacking up with her boyfriend anymore.” lol.

Anyhow, it seems like you’re guy has a plan up hid sleeve perhaps. I’d give it a few more months to play out. You don’t want to ruin his suprise!

My man was going to ask my Dad over Easter ๐Ÿ™‚  he said they had a great time but he didn’t feel like he had the right opportunity, but he feels confident about it and is just going to call my Dad right before he does it…so maybe that’s what yours is doing too! That way it’s a big surprise for everyone, very cute!

My fiance took my dad out golfing and asked him while they were having beers afterwords. He then came home and proceeded to ask me to marry him about 30 minutes after talking to my dad. Just because he hasn’t asked your dad doesn’t mean he won’t ask you soon.

The man said he will ask allow him to do so on his own timing. You want HIM to do it and not regret it because your pushing him. Give him time. He said it won’t be long now. Trust him and step back. It will be okay. Let that man be a man.

Another thought: maybe he told your mom and dad not to tell you he asked.

Has he actually done anything to make you not trust him? Cause it seems like if you’ve had multiple breakdowns, etc. that maybe this is about something more than just getting married. If there hasn’t been anything in the past, then maybe you need to work on why you are so worried about him. Good luck! I know waiting is the hardest part. I actually pretty much proposed to my fiance because I hate the waiting part ๐Ÿ™‚
