5 Best Ways to Propose to a Girl and Pop the Big Question
So, it’s that time. You are thoroughly convinced she is the right one and ready to take it a notch higher. Lucky you. But, the big question is how and where are you going to do it.
It’s safe to say that every girl always dreams about two occasions in her life- her proposal and the wedding day. Of the two, she only has control about the wedding day because she contributes to planning the whole thing from point one to the last.
But, for the proposal, you are the planner and the executor. Before you start planning for the big day and buying a ring for it, make sure you’ve asked the parents of the girl for her hand in marriage.
The pressure that comes with wanting to pull the best proposal ever is real. You just don’t want your girl to have an ordinary proposal. You must show your game and give your girl something to brag about with her friends.
To pull one of the best proposals ever, your creativity must be unquestionable, and you must understand your girl perfectly well not to piss her off. This moment is critical to her as it’s the time she makes that decision to share her body, mind, soul, heart, and life with you for the rest of her life (hopefully).
And because women come in different shapes, ranging from the sentimental type, the nature lover, animal lover, to the boisterous type and more, your creativity game is surely at test now. She expects you to connect with her at a deeper level to know where she falls and coin your proposal along that interpretation.
So, here are our top 5 best ways to propose to a girl you love and want to share your life with. Don’t worry if we are too awesome, it’s to your good.
1. 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. 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. Go for it!
2. Rev up the romance by including candlelight
Listen, guys, the candlelit dinner proposal type is quite common, but you can give it a twist of your own. Dim the lights and light up the candles. 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 cool 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.
If she loves some native flowers, go for them.
3. If you met in a really cool place, you already have a venue!
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.
4. 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. You can also think of her parent’s birthdays too. Or you can set the date commemorating an anniversary since you first met or a date similar to the day you first kissed. Or a certain anniversary since her parents exchanged vows (if both parents are alive).
Alternatively, you can go for the regular special calendar days such as valentines, Christmas Eve. This is a somewhat corny way to go about your proposal, but it’s romantic and worth some consideration.
If you think you can pop the big question in public, then a banner would go a long way.
Think of all the creative ways you can use a banner to propose. You can try it outside her workplace if she loves her work and colleagues. Or, you can have it at the bus station or in a restaurant.
Here’s an example.
If you choose a restaurant, for example, have the banner with her nickname that only you use, with the words “will you marry me?” or “will you go with me to eternity?” placed above the inside of a restaurant exit (if you both have a favorite restaurant, the better). Talk to the management to decorate the restaurant with some romantic decorations and displays.
Invite her for dinner and be early to ensure the arrangement is complete.
Pick your favorite spot and make sure you are as far as possible to the exit or blocked from seeing the exit. Once you’ve had a nice, romantic dinner in the restaurant and it’s time to leave for home, let her lead the way. If she sees it midway before the exit, your day is complete. If she doesn’t, hint her to look up before reaching the restaurant and she will surely see it.
There you have it; our top 5 best ways to propose to a girl. Go ahead and pick your choice and make it awesome. We hope she says yes.
