The best way to propose to your girlfriend

Whoa! Holy words of love, yeah? So do what it takes to seize the day. Plan it out. Don’t just wake up one morning, yawn, stretch and decide to go down on one knee. Sometimes, you would need months to prep for the big day.

It is a special day for the both of you, and one that will be remembered. There’s no point in keeping it simple and boring. No, proposing while watching Titanic isn’t a good idea.

Plan activities for the whole day

A proposal may take a few minutes, but so does the ending of a movie or a book. So why bother watching the whole movie or reading the whole book? The best way to propose to your girlfriend is by planning great activities for the rest of the day, and keeping the proposal as a grand finale to a series of happy moments.

This one is pretty straight. Let your day start early, and let everything go well, all the way from the first cup of coffee in the morning, the lunch on the rooftop, dinner by the pool, to the moment of proposal and everything in between. Let your girlfriend feel special and cared for, the whole day. And don’t let anything come in the way of your perfect date. Switch off your cell phone if you must.

Is it best to propose in public or in private?

A pretty important one, this. How’s your girlfriend when it comes to PDA and public canoodling? It’s never good to get your girlfriend feeling squirmy and sweaty in the middle of your proposal.

If your girlfriend’s a private person, then plan up a day which both of you can spend by yourselves, and make sure it’s just the both of you when you propose marriage.

On the other hand, if your girlfriend’s one who loves the attention and the glam of celebrations, plan an event that would end with a karaoke club or one where you’d have all your friends around to share the loving.

The best proposal – A romantic one or a happy proposal?

There are different kinds of people in the world, and in love too, there are a few categories. But to sum them all up, you have the happy ones and the romantic ones. So where does your girlfriend sit snug?

If your girlfriend loves romance, then let her sink into a truly romantic setting, where it’s Frank Sinatra, sparkling wine, a cozy spot and all the works. And most importantly, it’s just the two of you. On the other hand, if your girlfriend would prefer a more fun day, followed by a romantic proposal, then hang out in fun places like amusement parks, watch movies, play pool or bowl, go bungee jumping or trekking.

Do all the works of a happy day, and sum it up with your loving proposal. When you propose to your sweetheart, remember, it’s all about her and how she feels. So make it her special day, will you?

Should you propose on a special day?

In love, every day is special. Is your girlfriend is the kind who treasures every special day, and feels let down if a special day like Valentine’s is overlooked? Or is your girlfriend the one who would treasure each day without actually paying special attention to a few specific days? You know your partner best, so work your way based on your whims or on a special day to them, like a birthday, an anniversary, or Valentine’s Day. If there’s any reason to make a special day all the more special, go all the way to make sure about that.

How long should you plan before you propose?

This is the day when you would be proposing to spend the rest of your life with your girlfriend. So how important do you think that day will be? When you go to pick a ring, remember that it should cost roughly around two months of your pay-check. That’s the ideal worth of a good ring. But a ring doesn’t sum the whole event, does it?

It’s all about how much more you can do to make that night a special one. You could rent a chopper or you could prepare a table for two on the rooftop of a skyscraper, or you could meticulously plan the show a few months ahead, and proclaim your love. But the longer you work on the setup, the more memorable it would turn out to be.

Always remember that the best way to propose to your girlfriend is not by picking ideas from other people, but by planning it around your girlfriend’s interests.

    I actually completely disagree with this whole article. I’m a girl (as my name would hopefully suggest) and I’m far off from getting married, but right now I think the most romantic proposal would be a simple, off the cuff kind of thing. My future partner and I snuggled up on the soa together with bad tv and good thai food and him just kissing me on the forehead, telling me he loves me and whispering into my ear “marry me?”. I think this big, extravagant proposal is over-rated, i mean, if you think YOUR girlfriend would really love that, then by all means, but i would be swooning at a simple proposal with maybe a bottle of bubbly and a bunch of flowers on standby for my (hopefully positive!) reply.

    But yeah, there is one thing I agree with in this article – don’t just use someone else’s idea. It’s about you and your partner, and whatever is right for the two of you 🙂

    Georgia, everyone is unique; personally I hate the idea of being somewhere extremely busy or public when being proposed to, but I do love the idea of a man making a lot of effort and proposing to me somewhere romantic or significant.

    I never thought I’d be the one proposed to in the Eiffel Tower. I realize it may sound cliche but, I think most people really dont get to be proposed to in such a way-I certainly didnt think I’d be moi. My fiance, on our first trip together to Europe, made arrangements to eat dinner at Le Jules Verne ( retaurant inside the tower). We had just arrived from England and it was about 9pm while walking towards the Eiffel, all the while I’m stating “Im Hungry!! When r we eating!!.

    Once in the tower the gentleman in the entrance new my fiance’s name and we took the elevator up to the restaurant. Once there, they escorted us to a beautiful table next to the window!! I actually cried because not only the view was a dream come true but, I knew he had to have pulled some strings to make it happen. We ordered, which by the way, the ladies menu doesnt have a price so I ended up ordering 2 prix fix dinners that totaled 700 euros with no alcohol! Anyway, I found that out later and had a mini heartattack but I didnt have any idea I was going to be proposed to.
    Once dessert came, my fiance pulled out an old fashioned personal CD player and a paper with lyrics and asked me to put on the earbuds. It was the song from the Beattles “Grow old with Me” ..I had never heard the song even though he’s a Beattles fan. Their’s a part in the song that mentions “husband and wife” and at that same synchronized moment, he pulled out the RING!! I started crying right there and again when the bill came to the table! LOL!

    It was remarkable and so thoughtful. It was his first time to Paris and my third. He new how much I love the French culture and the city itself although he’s not too crazy about the country, he knew it would be even more special for me getting engaged in the most beautiful city in MY world!

    On January 2, 2014 , it will be three years that weve been engaged. Since then, their have been cracks but, we still are madly in love and will be celebrating our 5 year anniversary in November. Maybe we could get married one day in Paris too……!

    Congratulations to the newly engaged and to the married couples who’ve made it!!

    This one is my parents’. LOL. When my mom told me this I thought it was hilarious and I had to put this somewhere. It’s really short and to the point, like my dad. Okay so one night they were in bed (I’m assuming my mom meant just about to go to sleep), and all of a sudden my dad said: “So what, you wanna get married?” well obviously my mom said yes, but it was sudden and she was confused. They had their wedding one week later, they were married by a Shinto priest (they’re Christian and Catholic) and my mom’s wedding dress was a plain blue office looking dress. I thought this was so funny because it’s something my dad would actually do
