What do I need to prepare when proposing?

Quite nervous these days, I need a check list. Need some help here.
In general what do girls expect? The diamond, of course.

Fancy dinner? flowers? in front of friends? family? sing a song? a Mexican playing violin?

no plan for some crazy surprise or waste of money events, just need a good script to do it correctly. What DID you do?

Nothing really special in the city where we are staying, she just moved to here around a year, and we were busy all the time. I was thinking Michelin-starred restaurants would be a good idea, but don't now if that would be kind of plain?

99% for sure that it won't go bad, I personally want it quick, ok, hug and wah-la. I don't know if she's thinking the same thing. =/

next time your driving down the street with her in the pass seat

throw the ring box at her and casually say "so you wanna? or what?"

jkjk

like saucy said, is there a park you guys like or someplace atall with any kind of meaning?

the easy way out is just where you guys met, or went on a first date etc. my brother just got married and thats what he did

Its not about what you DO, it is about what you SAY.

If you want to surprise her, don't take her to a fancy restaurant and go over the top....she will be expecting it. Plus, do you want to have an audience?

Maybe go for a nice walk...beach? park? I know the weather is junk right now, but somewhere quiet and romantic is nice.

Regarding diamond? If she is the one...size should not matter. I would kill my bf if he sprung for a huge expensive diamond. My ex-fiance bought a diamond/ring way beyond his means and I felt guilty. It is really not worth it. I'm not telling you to cheap-out on it, but be a little conservative because you still add a wedding ring to it so at some point it will be "bigger" and more elaborate.

We you start to propose, reminisce about the past, how you started dating, how happy you are, how lucky you are, how beautiful she is, what she means to you and how you want to spend the rest of your life with her, etc...

Make is sweet, intimate, special....don't over think it.

go somewhere scenic or memorable.

otherwise you will regret in the future, when you tell your kids how it happened you want it to be a good story.

Make sure u know she'll say yes. Like 100% sure. Im sure ud have discussed about marriage before and base it on that.


At least thats how i do it when i ask a girl to go steady with me... 100% certainty or i better be damn near it

Thanks, I agree to what you said. Need to pick the right place and say the right thing.

We have been together for 5 yrs and lived together for over a year now. This is going to be a 100%-sure thing. I've already ordered a 1.00 caret (very hard to find with all excellent grades), it's within my budget and I feel she deserves it. As for the wedding ring, I haven't had time to look for it, we'll pick the one we like once she says yes.


I know rejection could be a nightmare, I'll see if I could get help from her close friends.
