O.k so I'm bored and just thought of this topic....please don't call me romantic alright!
Males: So you found someone you want to be with for the rest of your lives....how will your propose to this woman and what kind of words are you going to say to her?
Females: What kind of proposal you want to?? in what place? and what romantic words you want to hear from him?:wacko:
Some couples plan out their engagement. Like talking about it beforehand (most couples talk about possibility of marriage but I mean setting an exact date and so on) or both going to the store and picking out a ring, etc.
I just want it to be a surprise, thoughtful, romantic (by now he should know me well enough to know what my definition of "romantic" is), and not half-assed.
You know.... Not all men are fools, Some are called bachelors.
Oh, ho ho! I remember when I was proposed to...
I was having a rough day when he called. "I have a question...no no. It's too early. I better wait..." I knew what he was going to ask, but I wanted to hear him say it.
"Will you......." About...10 minutes of silence, then a squeaky voice. "marry" 5 more minutes of silence, then back to normal voice. "me?" I sometimes like to call him Mr.Squeaky.
Anyway, a proposal should be romantic, and spontaneous. I think it should be when the woman isn't expecting it...at all. And sometimes if possibly, in front of other people.
None - I will never ever again get married.
Some women like it to be gentle proposal....but I find it too common or maybe I just want a little..little husky proposal to make it hot like..... "I love you!... I want your body and soul!...heart and mind.!...(while he's holding your shoulders ) Marry me!"
...ahhh....that would be awesome....*nods*
yeah I have weird tastes alright!
Well, I'd want to tell her something that makes her feel all special and adored.
If someone ever proposed to me I'd want it to be spontaneous and sincere, I guess? I dunno, I guess it doesnt realy matter how they ask it, as long as they're sincere about it xD
Quoted for truth and great justice.

I would want to take her somewhere really nice like a restaurant or something, then I would take her somewhere nice and quiet, bathe under the stars and talk about when we first met, what we should do, and other things about eachother and how we feel, and when I have her in a high enough spirit and when she is blushing with romantic thoughts, I will ask her. Seems like some fairy-tale I know but it is not impossible, I can make it happen....I hope so anyway because that would be such a nice night and one that I am sure we will both remember. ^^;
Ahaha...Well, Since I ish female..I want a very very romantic proposal. I want the person I'm with to take me to our favorite place (If they are the person of my dreams, It would be like...laser tag) And pull me away from everyone and just tell me EXACTLY how they feel..
If it was my dream world they would probably say something that Darcy (From pride and Prejuduce) would say...Like "You have bewitched me body and soul" Along those lines. =)
Yeah, me too. :p

The general objective would be to make it feel like time itself has completely stopped if only for a few seconds.
Some may call that romantic, I prefer to call it clever.
Well it's normal if a girl wants a romantic proposal,
where as it is true that boys are sometimes half scared to death of proposing to his future fiance,
(not saying all guys are like that, some are dignified in this sort of thing)
But I guess the best way for a proposal should be something special
which the two share and understand indirectly,
so at the same time it is romantic to the girl and calmer for the man to propose, for me anything would be a nice way to ask for hand in marriage.
recently I saw this american proposal show, showing couples, mostly men I think,
doing special ways of proposing to their girlfriend, one i saw was a athletic couple, and the guy had sent a air ship to show the sign 'I love you /her name/...' while they where playing on a football field, and soon after she realised, he pulled out the ring and asked her to marry him, and she siad yes I thought that was kinda cute. =/
I would kinda want him to say something that'll take my breath away. I mean, I don't want something cheesy like,
"You complete me!"
No, I've heard that throughout the relationship. I want to hear something like,
"Everytime I look at you it makes me realize that there is a God, and that he took the time out of his busy schedule to make you just for me!"
Now that is poetry! hehe
The place well at a restaurant is kinda corny so I'd want him to be bold enough to propose to me around my family like at a family gathering. Hopefully he'll throw me off somehow to make it extra special. Anyways, maybe I'm just complicated. hehe
but only for this topic I am! ^^
You have a very gender stereotypic idea of marriage. I think it's the woman who should make the proposal.

I'd have no idea what to say :ninja: I'm not good with these types of things anyways :wacko:
hahah!!! i know exactly what i would do ^^ well two different things actually
one, if she was at work and worked in a public place where i could easily get access to *like if she was a cashier* i would buy something stupid and get in her line ya know and as shes ringing me up or if shes a waitress and i go up to pay id be like oh yeah wait lemme look for change and id pull the ring out and be like "oh yeah, i forgot to ask you but will you marry me?" i think thatd be sweet and if i was meeting her at home id take her out somewhere and like . . well i AM the romantic type and i would pay for a fireworks display somewhere to spell it in the sky ^^ will you marry me
Bah! You're assuming that the woman can't be the one to do the proposing. She certainly can ;p

Wow, thinking about marriage proposal already? xD
Anyways, if I were to have a say in it, I'd prefer to have something like a romantic surprise but not the cheesy kind. And, no way am I going to be the one proposing.
Frankly, I find your question quite insulting and incredibly sexist. Do you hope to claim that the female side of the species cannot propose to us males?
In fact you would be incorrect! My ex-girlfriend proposed to me! I refuse to answer such a barbaric question!
O.k...my bad! you see...in our country...mostly men proposed...probably because it's our culture and dalagang Filipinas are too shy to do that....I forgot to think that other women can propose.:closedeye
I know how I want to purpose, but I figure it runs the risk of being changed depending on the woman. For me, it's top secret stuff that my love gets to find out first.
My proposal would probably go something like this: "Well you're knocked up anyway, let's get married and make our lives even more miserable."
I saw this one proposal helped out by that TLC show. This guy took his girl to Disneyworld. They rode to Cinderella's castle in a lighted horse carriage, in which they proceeded to eat an intimate dinner on the ramp (or possibly underneath) the castle. There was a violinist playing, and then he proposed to her by having the ring in a glass slipper.
I don't care if he copies that idea, to me, that is the ideal proposal. :D
