Three Romantic Ways to Propose
Many men use Valentine's Day as the day to propose
to their loved one. After all, it is the
most romantic day of the year and it is a day
you will always remember as the special day that
you decided to become one. So, what are
some romantic ways to propose? Here is a
list of three ways to propose on Valentine's Day
that will definitely thrill your girlfriend.
1. Do it in front of her family
This all depends on how traditional your girlfriend
is, of course. If she does not get along
well with her family, this is a bad plan.
But, if you know she is very close to her mother,
father, siblings, grandparents, cousins, etc.,
this can be a great idea. Have them help
you plan the special day.
Assign one of them to ask her to come to a family
reunion on Valentine's Day in order to get everyone
together. Inform them of the real plan,
but have them keep the secret from your girlfriend.
When she tells you about the reunion, complain
a bit about the reunion being on Valentine's Day,
but do not over do it to the point where she decides
not to go.
If that happens, remind her that family is important
and even though you would rather take her to a
romantic dinner alone, you will go to the reunion.
If you are very traditional, ask her parents for
her hand in marriage before the party. Let
the reunion go on for a while, so she really believes
it is real. Designate a time when you are
going to pop the question and inform the others
beforehand (so they know it is going to happen)
like when you put on a certain song or say something
Then, drop to one knee; tell her how special she
is and that you've already received her parent's
permission to ask for her hand. Tell her
you love her, ask her to marry you and give her
the ring. Chances are she will say yes and
the whole room will burst into applause.
Make sure in advance that you have spoken to someone
in the family about taking photos or a video when
you ask so you will have the moment preserved
2. Plan a weekend getaway
If Valentine's Day is on the weekend, plan a getaway
destination such as Las Vegas or Miami.
This is a great way to propose if she likes doing
spontaneous things and loves to travel.
Don't tell her until Friday afternoon when she
gets off work. Pick her up at the office
and say she has 30 minutes to get packed, that
you have planned a weekend trip. To do this
you will need to plan several things in advance.
You will need to get either airline tickets, train
tickets (traveling by train can be very romantic),
or get the driving directions. Make sure
you have reservations at a romantic hotel.
For example, if you are going to Miami, try to
get a room on the beach. If you are going
to Las Vegas, try to get a suite on the Strip
at one of the nice hotels. You will have
to have the stuff you will need for the weekend
packed - including the ring. Hopefully,
she will be so excited by the trip, she will think
that is what the weekend is about. But,
at a great romantic moment, like a walk on the
beach or in front of the Bellagio when the fountains
are going off, propose to her. If you are
in Las Vegas, you can even get married there the
3. Borrow from her favorite click flick
Most women love romantic click flicks and many
include a proposal. If you know a movie
she loves that has a romantic proposal scene,
reenact it with her. If My Best Friend's
Wedding is her favorite movie, just holler out
"Will you marry me?" as she is getting in her
car to drive away. It is even better if
she is getting on the train (which is how the
movie version actually goes). If An Officer
and a Gentleman is her favorite movie, walk in
to her office, just pick her up in your arms,
and carry her out. As you are carrying her
out, ask her to marry you.
For this, you should probably consult her boss
first. If she loves Sex and the City and
you have a dog, take the dog out for a walk with
her. When you stop to bend over and scoop
the poop, pull out the ring just like Aidan did
for Carrie. If you are not sure what her
favorite chick flick is, ask. You can always
use the premise that you are thinking about buying
her the DVD copy for Valentine's Day. Be
sure to ask for a few of her favorites to be sure
to find one that has a romantic proposal.
Proposing on Valentine's Day is a great idea and
one that your girlfriend will surely love.
If you have the right setting, it can be very
romantic and something that you both will tell
your grandchildren about one day.
