Choose the Perfect Proposal
Now, gentlemen, here’s the drill. You must first find the girl. No
point in doing this without the woman of your dreams. Next you must acquire
the ring, choose well. You must ask her out, drop to one knee and say,
“Will you marry me?” With any luck, she’ll say yes.
She may say yes, but man! That is one mechanical and boring proposal.
If you are truly in love, take the time to make your proposal memorable.
This is a landmark moment in relationships and needs TLC.
Yeah, you can do the simple drop to one knee and blurt out the question
bit. Just don’t forget to set the mood first. Your lady will appreciate
you even more for taking the time to “set the stage” if you will.
If your lady is the sentimental kind, why not put together various
things that will remind her of the various events in your relationship. For
example, why not put all the stuff in a box and go through the contents
with her. You can have a “remember when” afternoon with each of you
identifying the napkin you wrote her number on, the card from the first
bouquet of flowers you sent her, and so on.. Make sure to carefully
conceal one more item in the box that you will bring out. Of course, the
last item is the ring. Now’s the time to say the lines you’ve been
Too tame you say? Why not take it up a step? Take her on a tour of your
favorite places. Make it a day out. Start in your favorite restaurant,
do the things throughout the day that you enjoyed most while getting to
know each other (try to choose the most romantic ones). How about
ending your day by recreating your first dinner date? Pop the question after
Not inclined to go out in the foul weather? No problem. How about
creating a treasure hunt especially for her? Start by creating a note that
may simply say something like follow the rainbow to find gold. Next lay
her a trail of something she loves that she’ll definitely follow (in
this example, how about skittles). Put a few more notes in between that
say how you feel like, “you color my world”. Of course at the end of the
trail when she opens the door, there you are, in perfect position and
saying the loveliest phrase any women can hear.
Of course, you may just prefer to literally ride off into the sunset
with her. Take her on a trip with to a place you’ve both wanted to go. As
you watch the sun set, ask her to marry you.
It doesn’t have to be anything too elaborate, but your lady will
definitely appreciate the time and effort that you put into it. It’ll also
help you avoid funny incidents like losing the ring as she flips open her
table napkin, if you think the deed through. In the end, it’s still all
about one question and the fervent hope that she’ll say yes!
