What are some ways to plan the perfect proposal?

Cupid’s Advice:

How, when and where you propose is something your partner will never forget. In addition to the pressure of the planning the perfect proposal, you also have to remember she will be telling the story countless times, to all of her friends and family. We know you want to look good! If you are clueless in the realm of romantic proposals, here are some excellent–and simple–ways to create a proposal that she will never forget:

1. Choose the perfect ring: Choosing a ring can be extremely intimidating–and expensive. Add in the pressure that she will be wearing this ring the rest of your and her life and you have a recipe for stress. There are excellent ways to find the perfect ring without giving away the surprise. Ask her friends. There is not one woman in this world that hasn’t shown her favorite ring to her friends. Additionally, technology has severely favored the dating world. There is a great website called Pinterest. Women constantly Like and post pictures of rings they like. Use that for inspiration, but throw in a touch of yourself as well.

2. Be personal: Everyone gets engaged under the Rockefeller tree, at Disney World, on the beach or on Valentine’s Day. You and your significant other have a relationship all your own. Why not personalize your proposal to your relationship instead. If you and your sweetie like to hike, find a quiet spot at the top of the mountain where you can pop the questions. If you enjoy walking the dog together, do it then. Personalize the proposal by fitting it into your relationship, not fitting your relationship into the proposal. It will be way more romantic and make for a great story.

3. Pay attention to her likes and dislikes: Some men try so hard to have the most outrageous, romantic and original proposal out there. However, don’t lose sight of the woman on the other end. If she doesn’t like sports, don’t propose to her on the Jumbotron. If she hates public display of affection, don’t propose to her in the middle of a crowded train station. Find what works for both of you. Start by noting all of the things she likes and dislikes. It will help you narrow down the perfect venue and timing for your proposal.
