Take the Leap

Today  is February 29th. Do you know what that means?

It means that today is the day for you to propose to your man!

Okay okay, you don’t have to.. but it is a well known tradition that on a leap year the roles are reversed and a woman can propose to a man.

(Not that women can’t propose whenever they want – down with patriarchy and all that!)

This whole idea originates from 5th Century Ireland where it was made a law that on a leap year a woman can propose to a man, and if he didn’t say yes he would be fined. Where’s Dicaprio when you need him?

Even though in today’s day and age men won’t be forced to say yes, if you are thinking of popping the question to your Mr Right, here are ten ways you could go about it.

1. With a pint

because the real way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, right?
