Proposing to your partner will be one of the most important milestones in your life, and hence, it is quite natural for you to be excited and nervous at the same time. After all, it marks the first step in a lifelong relationship with your significant other.
Naturally, all guys look to propose to their better half in a memorable and outstanding way. For this, some even go for many bizarre proposals ideas. Yet note that the chances are more for your proposal to go wrong in such cases. In fact, your girlfriend will be more than happy if you just go on your knees and pop the question along with a dazzling diamond ring.
You will be really surprised to know how awful and terrible some proposal ideas can become if you do not consider certain factors associated with the proposal. For instance, consider proposing in the middle of the sea, while doing some adventurous activities, etc. Below are some of those big no-nos that you must avoid while proposing to your partner.
In the Ocean
Proposing to your partner in the middle of an ocean is one of the worst proposal ideas that you may probably make. In this type of proposals, people ideally take their significant others in a boat to some exotic spots in the ocean that offer a great scenery. From there, they go on knees in that wobbly boat and pop the question. However, many factors here can ruin one of the most precious moments in your life.
For instance, you may drop your diamond ring because of the unsteadiness of the boat or because of an unpredicted wave. Moreover, engaged women usually take off their diamond ring when they go swimming or engage in any other water-related activities so that their ring does not get damaged. Hence, the chances of losing your sparklers cannot be ruled out in such scenarios.
If you love the ocean too much though, and consider it as a good sign to mark your relationship with your soul mate, consider taking her to an exotic island. Else, consider proposing to your partner at the shore rather than in the middle of the sea.
Hiding the Sparkler in Her Food or Drink
You might have seen the leading actor hiding a diamond ring in the food or drink in most Rom-Com movies. In fact, many people tend to try this in real life. However, this is actually very dangerous, as your girlfriend may unknowingly swallow the sparkler. This can damage any of her internal organs, and worst, you may choke her to death.
Other than that, there are many other negatives for this proposal idea such as the cutlery damages, the diamond ring breaking your partner’s tooth, etc. Besides, it is not necessary for a waiter to focus his attention completely on your ring. So, the chances for him to accidentally mix up the plates and thereby lose your expensive sparkler is also possible. Needless to say, this will turn one of the most beautiful moments in your life to the worst moment of your life.
In order to avoid this, try something safe and romantic such as proposing to your partner on a dinner cruise or at any of her favorite restaurants (have the ring in your pocket and not in the food though). You can also try making some unique dishes for your partner and impress her with your culinary skills before popping the question.
At Sports Events
Some people become ecstatic when they get a perfect partner who enjoys sports as good as they do. Obviously, you may feel that nothing will be as meaningful and unique as proposing to your partner at any of her favorite sports events in such cases. Additionally, you will also be enthusiastic to display it on the big screen. It is true that this proposal idea will be dramatic, but there are some negatives associated with this too.
The first thing is that it will be better if you ask your girlfriend to spend the rest of her life with you at some cozy places so that she will be able to express her feelings well. In fact, many girls find it embarrassing to discuss personal affairs in public. Another downside is that there will be thousands of people at sports events and it will be nearly impossible for you to find your ring in case you accidentally drop it.
So, it will be better for you to take your partner to an empty pitch on a date night and pop the question privately. Else, propose to her while you are back at your place, watching her favorite sports on TV; popping the question at the half time will be perfect.
