So people, I need some advice on asking the my gf's dad for her hand in marriage. I think that its the right thing to do. I really don't know exactly what to say to him or how to initiate the question with him. Also I am so busy and the only time i see him its usually just for dinner at his house on Sunday and they have about 7-9 people over and it would be kinda strange for me to ask to speak to him in the other room. Would calling him be outta the question for something like this? I have thought of everything traditional like asking him out to lunch and those things and it would never work out because of the schedules. Any advice would really help me out. I bought the ring the other day and i would really like to start planning for the proposal!
