Welcome to part two of ways to propose to your girlfriend. Last time, I told you what not to do, but this time I’m offering ideas of how to make your proposal unique and exciting. Whether you’re jumping off a cliff or asking her in front of the world, these proposal ideas are memorable and bound to make her say YES.
If you’re not the kind of guy that likes to meekly get down on one knee and politely ask for her hand in marriage, maybe you need to try something a little bigger and more public. Take your girlfriend to your favorite sporting event and pop the big question over the big screen. When 50,000 people are staring at her as she’s staring at herself in the jumbo screen, chances are, she’ll say yes. If you are feeling even more ballsy and have connections with the broadcasters, take her to a live televised sporting event. Just make sure you’re taping the event at home…you might want to share that moment with your children when you’re older.
Pieces of the puzzle
Well, this might not be extreme but it is unique. Order a custom made marriage proposal puzzle, with as many puzzle pieces as you desire. You might not want to go for the 10,000 piece puzzle because by the time she finishes putting it together (if she finishes!), she’ll probably tell you no out of frustration and/or boredom. You can choose to have picture of the two of you with the words “Will You Marry Me?” legible once she’s put the puzzle together. Or you can spice it up with a naked picture of you and the words she’s waiting to hear…at least it will break the ice. That is, unless she hasn’t seen you naked before!
A great trick is to keep one piece of the puzzle—the key piece—in your pocket. Then when she realizes there’s a piece missing, you can pull it out and fill in the missing hole. When she realizes what you’re doing, she’ll be so surprised that maybe, just maybe, she’ll say Yes!
For a truly indecent proposal, slip the engagement ring on your girlfriend’s finger while the two of you are going at it. Make sure that it’s not a quickie before work, but an intense love-making session where you’ve brought her to orgasm several times. While she’s writhing in ecstasy, you can slip the ring on her finger and watch her come all over again.
On top of the world
Nothing beats a hot-air balloon ride. Grab a bottle of champagne and a couple of glasses and head up into the sky. Tell the person controlling the balloon that you’re planning on proposing for your girlfriend, and get him to pretend that he’s lost control of the balloon, forcing you to free-float and hope for the best. When your girlfriend starts to panic, tell her that you’ve got something that will calm her down, and place the ring on her finger. It won’t calm her down, but the fear of being lost in a hot air balloon and the thin oxygen will tip the odds in your favor.
Underwater or in the air
The trip to Australia that you and your girlfriend planned is the perfect opportunity to use the physical beauty of the country and the extreme sports it offers, to your advantage. While you are taking scuba-diving lessons, pretend you are pointing to an exotic fish. When she’s trying to locate it, take the ring and place it in front of her face for her to see. Just make sure she doesn’t lose her oxygen mask from all the excitement. Alternatively, just before you take your first bungee jump; ask your girlfriend the big question. Before she can answer, take your leap. When you come back up, she’ll want to kill you and marry you.
Rent the advertising space on a bus shelter or a bench on the side of the road. Take her for a drive and then laughingly point out the “stupid” lengths that some men go to, to get their girlfriends to say yes. When she sees the sign, it will probably take her a few moments for the proposal to register. The next day, you can change your advertisement to something like, “She said yes!”
From the creators of TLC’s Dating Story, Wedding Story, and Baby Story comes a new show called Perfect Proposal. The show follows “real” people around, taping the big moment for televised display. Check out www.banyanproduction.com for details about how to sign up. Good part about this is that you will always have a copy of the tape to show to your friends, family, and children.
If it’s Easter time, place the ring inside an Easter egg and make her go on an Easter egg hunt. Make sure it’s at a family gathering so that someone is around to take pictures of the moment. Or, if you go out for dinner to a Chinese restaurant, place the ring inside a fortune cookie with your own little note inside asking her to marry you. Tell the waiter about your plan so that your cookie doesn’t accidentally end up at another table causing chaos and embarrassment for everyone.
Take your girlfriend fishing and pretend to catch your first bite. Make a big deal of reeling your catch in and when you finally have the hook in your hand, take of the ring (which of course was never in the water to begin with—gotta be quick with your hands here) and show her what you caught. She’ll probably want to go fishing a lot more often.
