Planning your Proposal
Planning your proposal, but not sure what to say? Sure, getting down on one knee while holding a ring box sort of says it all. Your engagement should be an unforgettable occasion, its good to have a couple ideas in your head on how it all should go. (But, don’t get too held up on the details!) Here are a few ideas of things to say that will make her heart melt!
What did you think when you first met her?
Tell her about what you though the first time you saw her. Begin by reminiscing about the first time you laid eyes on her. Talk about how you were awestruck by her beauty, or amazed to find a woman who shared your passion for the same sports team, or how you just knew that someone seriously special had entered your life.
When did you realize that you might want to spend your life with her?
Try to identify one specific moment when it hit you that you’d found the one. Was it when the four-star restaurant lost your reservation and she cheerfully suggested you head across the street for pizza and beer instead? The time she came over when you were sick in bed with the flu and watched a kung fu movie marathon with you?
What do you have now that you didn’t before you met?
Focus on how much better your life is now that she’s in it. Has she helped you laugh off little things that used to stress you out? Taught you the value of having more in the fridge than take-out cartons and beer? Show her how much you appreciate and need her.
What goals and values do you two share?
Talk about the things that are important to both of you, and the plans you’ve discussed for the future. This will emphasize why you’re a perfect match and why you should spend your futures side by side.
What about her inspires you?
What is it about your sweetie that makes you want to be more like her? Her patience and kindness to others? Her sense of adventure? The value she places on making the world a better place? Revealing how much you admire her will show that you love her for all the right reasons.
