This is for those who are scared of going on one knee in public or struggling with what type of proposal to do just to blow their spouse’s mind. First thing to consider is the type of person your spouse is, whether she’s an outdoor or indoor type or you consider her to be the indifferent type.
Being indifferent about things might not make her sing in your ears the type of proposal she has always fantasized about. However, as a man, that doesn’t mean you should not have a plan on how to make your woman feel special in popping the question that follows years of courting and stealthy late night kisses.
In a world filled with different ladies with different personalities and what they daydream about, knowing what gives them fulfilment and make them smile is of great essence.
Let’s discuss two categories of proposals you can consider or better still, have a conversation about with your spouse before you plan your ‘big day.’ So, having a conversation with your spouse about her type of dream proposal may seem like a heads up, but can still catch them unawares and make them shed tears of joy.
Outdoor proposals are the ones that happen in public, where you just see a man go on one knee and pop the question. Below are the different types of outdoor proposals:
Cinema: remember hearing a gist of how a man caught his fiancé unawares after arranging with the cinema attendant, asking all his babe’s friends to be on standby, lying to the fiancé about both of them going to the cinema to see a movie. On getting to the cinema room, the fiancé just sees her different pictures on display then the man goes on one knee and the light comes up and she sees all her friends and family in the cinema awwwn-ing! So touching, isn’t it? So, arranging a type of cinema proposal can come with all friends and family or you pop it in the presence of total strangers. But whichever way, keep your eyes on the goal.
Beach: have you ever thought of a beautiful seaside type of proposal. For lovers of nature, beach is another beautiful location to pop the question, be it day time or evening. Maybe while having a stroll on the beach, you can start by reminiscing on the early days of your relationship, appreciate her loyalty over the years or the few months she had come into your life, bring out the ring and pop the question. Oh my! Can you see the sea goddess and mermaids cheering you and clapping? ‘LoL.’
Restaurant: well, restaurant is not a new idea when we talk about locations to pop the question. However, getting a cozy and exquisite one makes the whole process of popping the question more beautiful and memorable – taking note of the restaurant’s settings, lights, the waitress and waiters working; with a romantic music in the background. All these should be considered if you plan to pop the question at a restaurant – not necessarily a 5-star, but getting a 3-star of great settings won’t be a bad idea.
Vacation trip: aside from the beach, restaurant and cinema proposal styles, taking your lover on vacation is another interesting and memorable way of proposing. Plan a vacation maybe to an island or her favourite city, where she has always dreamt about.
Family and friends’ get-together: remember how Helene got proposed to by her fiancé, Amber on her mum’s birthday. What a beautiful gathering. You might want to be like Amber, giving your family and friends a heads up on the turn the proposal will take so they can check their schedule and see if they can be part of your big day.
For the shy and introvert lovers, an indoor proposal style is also a pretty big deal, especially if it’s coming from a romantic lover – one who knows how to set the atmosphere on fire. You can pick any of the following indoor proposals, depending on how freaky you are.
In bed proposal: hey, sleeping beauty, wake up and smell the coffee… can you tell me how your fingers feel, light or heavy? How many diamond stones are on the crest? Wow that waking up to forever prince charming popping the question in your dream and you wake up to that reality. Waking up to see your ring finger occupied is a beautiful feeling rather than having an outdoor proposal. The indoor own saved the day.
Shower time: not all women want a gathering type of proposal and having a warm evening bath with lit scented candles and a few red roses at the bathroom entrance or inside the bathtub with a bottle of champagne, is a warm and beautiful kind of proposal an introvert or an indoor lover would appreciate.
Home dinner: this is going to sound like a great idea for a man who knows how to make some good and special delicacies. But for the ones who don’t find cooking interesting, please order from the best restaurant in town so the food you order doesn’t ruin your proposal evening.
Sex time: sex is great but it can also be an avenue to pop the question. It may sound awkward but the memory will definitely linger on for so long. You may decide to pop the question when she’s about to climax or after an orgasm. Try this; I will be waiting for your feedback.
Birthday: birthdays are special occasions for ladies. So, making it a double celebration will forever make it memorable for the woman you’ve chosen to spend your life with. You can start out by wishing her a happy birthday; then you just switch to the notes you’ve prepared and pop the question.
Just to avoid trending unnecessarily on social media for a proposal you have planned perfectly in your head, I will always suggest that you have a conversation with your partner before this big step and also to avoid embarrassment. I usually wonder about those ladies that reject proposals in public and I used to judge them until I realised some are not in a relationship to eventually get married. So, to avoid the “eyahs” and “sorry,” you should be sure that your woman is ready to go the whole hog to marry you. And also do her the favour of knowing what her perfect proposal is to make it a memorable one for both of you. You might like going all the way out while she just wants to be asked in private. So, my dear sweet man getting ready to pop the question, grab the bulls by the horns and show it who the boss is! Make your proposal as sweet as she is in your heart. Good luck!
