5. Rev up the romance by including candlelight
Agreed that the candlelit dinner proposal type is quite common, but you can give it a twist of your own. Soften the lights and light up the candles instead.
This sets the stage for something extraordinary. You can never go wrong with candles; they just uniquely bring the romance.
Think of a few ways to spice up the occasion. If it’s a dinner setting, get some nice and soothing music in the background.
And it doesn’t have to be at home. You can book a special place and have them set it up for you with all your specifications.
6. Propose to her at the place you met her first
It’s unlikely that all through your dating period till this moment, someone has not asked you about how and where you met. It’s because it always invites a special feeling and tells a lot about the two of you.
It’s even more fun and sweet if you make your proposal venue the place you first met.
Sometimes it doesn’t matter whether it’s in school or on the bus. If you can pull it off and make it memorable, go for it.
And you are lucky if you first met in a park, beach or at a particular corner in a restaurant or hotel. You can simply recreate the moment and propose to her there.
7. Pick a special day (especially of hers)
Special days come in handy when deciding on when to propose. If you know a special day in her life, then it’s to your advantage.
Think of her birthday as the starting point. Or you can set the date commemorating an anniversary since you first met or a date similar to the day you first kissed.
Alternatively, you can go for the regular special calendar days such as Valentine, Christmas Eve. This is a somewhat corny way to go about your proposal, but it’s romantic and worth some consideration.
8. Be yourself and let the proposal reflect your personality
Guys, this is like the rule of the thumb. Girls read so much from the proposal, and you don’t want to let this chance fade off without making a personal statement.
This is your chance to be yourself and real. Think of clever ways to propose, but don’t overdo the proposal. You’ll come out as trying too hard- which is a bad idea.
Make things simple and sweet. Be rational and follow what your gut is telling you. It’s the simple things that give a lasting memory.
