Worst Places To Propose On A Date

Ok guys, listen up.  Maybe sometime in the near or not too distant future, you are making plans to pop the question.  You want this to be the moment the both of you will remember for the rest of your lives.  You want her to have the story that she will be telling her friends for decades to come, for good reason, not “Oh my God, I can’t believe that he proposed to me there!”.

Although you feel it would be super cool to propose to her on the Jumbo-tron at Yankee Stadium, she just may feel otherwise.  A lot of women enjoy sports and sporting events as much as we do, but let’s face it, she’s at the game primarily because you want to be there.

Never propose at your friend’s, relative’s, etc’s engagement party, wedding, retirement party.  I can think of nothing that can turn a woman off more that stealing the thunder away from another event.  Haven’t you seen enough chick flicks to know better than that?

At the wake of her great Aunt Bethany is probably not a good idea either.  Yeah, all the focus seems to be on the dearly departed.  Have a soul, ya dope!

Never ever ever ever ever propose via text, facebook, or any other form of electronic medium.  This is something that absolutely must be done in person, unless, of course, a big fat NO, is what you are looking for.

Proposing in front of or near the girl’s family is not a place I would encourage either.  The girl may feel embarassed as well as pressured to come up with an answer if you are in front of an audience, especially if her dad doesn’t like you.

If you are going to propose at a nice restaurant, maybe you are planning to hide the engagement ring in a piece of cake, or in the champagne glass.  Don’t do it!  Yeah, you see it in the movies all the time and it works smashingly.  This is real life.  Unless you are 100 per cent comfortable giving her the Heimlich maneuver when she chokes on the ring, or if you plan on making an emergency trip to the dentist when she cracks her tooth, I would recommend not doing this.

In the sack?  Really?  Whose bright idea was this?  I can think of no bigger turn off than being in the throws of passion and here comes this big question.  As George Constanza once said, “That’s a might big Matza Ball hanging out there”.

Don’t propose marriage as you are stepping out of divorce court.  “Out with the old, in with the new” is also not a good way to start that proposal.

Never propose at a fast food joint.  “Honey, I love you, will you marry me?  Oh yeah, I’ll have the number 2 extra value meal, make that large size.”  Just……don’t.  Oh wait, maybe you can hide the ring at the bottom of her bag of fries!

No matter how you do it, propose marriage, that is, be creative.  Try to think about how she would like you to do it, not how you want to do it.  This is a moment that both of you will share, hopefully for the rest of your lives.  What are some of the craziest places or ways you have heard about proposals, either your own personal experience or others?  Would love to hear about them, feel free to comment.
