How to Propose A Girl

Are you hounded by the question of “how to propose a girl”. As a solution to your problem, we are giving you some ideas for proposal to a girl. One of the things to keep in mind while proposing is that girls are usually more sensitive than guys and they like subtle ways of proposal. However, each and every girl is different from the other and the way of proposal should suit the temperament of the particular girl you are about to propose.

Still, on the basis of the usual personality traits of all girls, we are giving some generic ideas for proposing a girl on Valentine’s Day as well as any other day:

  • “Old is Gold”, this age-old adage comes true in the context of the all time favorite idea of proposing a girl by going down on the knees. This technique may be old, but it still helps in melting a girl’s heart.
  • There is no need for using fanciful or big grandiloquent words to impress her. Rather, it may prove to be a big turn off. The best way is to express your true feeling in the simplest manner.
  • To show that you really care for her. Invite her to a quiet and romantic dinner for just the two of you, at your place. Prepare all her favorite dishes and play her favorite music. Along with your love, it will also show how much you know about her.
  • Prepare a banner, with the words “I Love You” or “Will You Marry Me”. Stick this banner outside her home or her office, where she is bound to notice it. Please do not use her name on that banner. Better to use some nickname that only you two know of.
  • If you can afford, sky writing your proposal is an excellent idea. But make sure that you are with her when the proposal is written.
  • Proposing at the same place where both of you met for the first time or the place both of you have fond memories of, is a good idea.
  • If you have some beaches nearby, drive there in the evening. With soft music playing in your car, propose her when the sun is setting. The whole ambience will make her go weak in the knees.

How to Propose A Guy

An unusual thing some time back, the idea of proposal to a guy is quite in these days. But, some girls still hesitate to take this step. And one of the major issues that further add to their reluctance is “how to propose a boy”. So, as a solution to this problem, we are providing you with some ideas for proposing a guy on Valentine’s Day. However, these generic ideas can be used whenever you want to propose that someone special, Valentine’s Day or not.

  • If you can afford it, hire a billboard near his house. Flash your message on it. But, please do make sure that he sees the same. Otherwise, all your efforts will lead to no results.
  • Girls are not the only ones who love flowers. Keep sending him flowers every hour on the day you want to propose. And with the last one, send a message expressing your feelings.
  • Another way is to shower him with flower petals or laying a carpet of flower petals to walk on. When the showering or the carpet ends, go down on your knees and tell him how much you love him.
  • Make a video, telling him about your feelings like how much you love him and care for him. Get this cassette or CD delivered to him and wait for his reply. Better still, be with him when he watches the video. You will get to see his immediate reaction.
  • Take him out for some romantic movie. With the help of the theater staff, display the words “I Love You (Name)” or “(Name), Will You Marry Me”, just before the movie starts.
  • Another way of proposing is to announce it on the radio. But, first make sure that he listens to the radio and is tuned on the same station on which you are going to make the announcement.

Top Ten Ideas for Romantic Proposal

Given below are the top ten ideas for romantic proposal:


  • One of the most popular ideas for proposing is to go down on your knees and tell your partner how much you love him/her. Although very common, it works every time.
  • Another one of the famous marriage proposal ideas is to prepare a little treasure hunt. Plant clues all over the house and give him/her the first one. The clues should be easy for him/her to find out. When he/she goes to the last place you will be there, holding the ring and ready to propose.
  • Invite your partner for dinner at your place and cook his/her favorite dishes. Decorate one room with aroma candles and fill the entire floor with rose petals (obviously red). With soft music playing in the background, have dinner in some other room. Now, blindfold your partner and take him/her into the decorated room. Remove the blindfold and propose.
  • Invite your partner over to your place. And just before he/she is about to come, write the words “I Love You or Will You Marry Me” on the lawns of your house with flower petals. He/she is going to love it.
  • Book his/her favorite restaurant and arrange for the proper candle light dinner with violin playing in the background. After you have your desert, have the waiter bring a tray decorated with flower petals, with the jewelry box in the center and just above it a card expressing your feelings for him/her.
  • If you have the keys to his/her house, decorate his/her entire room with flowers before he/she gets up or comes back from the office. Just after his/her waking up or getting back, propose with a ring in your hand.
  • Take him/her to an echo point and shout your proposal at the top of your voice. Your words will come back to her many times and emphasize your feelings.
  • Plan a small magical evening for the two of you. Have the magician pop out the jewelry box suddenly in front of him/her, at the end of the magic show.
  • Buy a notebook and cut out the circle in the middle of all the pages, big enough for the ring. On each page write something that you really love about him/her. On the last page write the million-dollar question and keep the ring in between.
  • Buy a talking parrot and train it to say “I Love You”. Gift it to your partner on the day you want to propose.

When to Propose

You have been going around with that someone special for a long time. You like him/her, like spending time together, like his/her sense of humor and so on. But, now you are in a dilemma. You have been wondering for sometime whether he/she is the right person and whether it is the time to propose. To help you get over this predicament, we have written this article on “when to propose” or “when to say I love you”. Read on to know about the right time for a proposal…

Be Sure of Yourself
You don’t want to say those three words and regret later on. To be sure of yourself, answer these questions…

  • Can you spend the rest of your life with him/her?
  • Is this “the first face” you want to see in the morning, when you wake up?
  • Do you share a mutual understanding and good comfort level?
  • Does thinking about him/her bring a smile to your face?
  • Do you forget yourself when you are with him/her?
  • Can you accept him/her the way he/she is?
How Does He/She Feel About You
Try to find out whether he/she feels the same as you do. If the other person does not share your feelings, then, you risk losing even your friendship by expressing your feelings. To find out, answer the following questions…
  • Does he share his/her feelings about the important things in life with you?
  • Have you met his/her family?
  • Does he/she love the clumsy look of yours, when you are not properly dressed?
  • Is he/she always there, even when you have the slightest of problems?
  • Is he/she able to guess what you are going to say, even before you utter the words?
If the answers to these questions are also positive, then don’t wait anymore. Just go and tell your partner how much you love him/her.

Just like there are the right ways of proposing someone, there are also worst proposal ways. These ways irritate the other person, rather than, making him/her feel special. So, make sure that you never ever use any of the wrong ways of proposing. Read on to know how not to propose someone…

  • Never ever propose on the phone. The method is highly impersonal and takes away the romance out of a proposal.
  • Don’t use e-mail or chat rooms or short messaging service (sms) to tell someone how much you love him/her.
  • Another wrong way of proposing someone is to ask his/her friend to convey the message. They are your feelings and you need to express them yourself.
  • If your friend is a bit reserved and does not like crowded places, it is better not to propose when too many people are around.
  • Don’t try to be too humorous while proposing. Humor is good, but not when are telling the other person how much you love him/her. It is the time to show how sincere your feelings are.
