As yet another Valentine’s Day approaches some very smart husbands, boyfriends and significant others already have got V-day covered. Perhaps the night will be filled with dinner and dancing followed by a gift, preferably jewelry. Moreover, while it may seem tempting, leave the lingerie purchase to us. We know what we and you like. Trust me guys, you won’t be disappointed.
However, Valentine’s Day also has the distinction of being the second most popular time for marriage proposals and this is where it gets interesting. How do you propose? Will it be a quiet event with you on bended knee? Or maybe a romantic proposal written in the sand of a favorite beach? America’s mantra has always been go big or go home but every couple is different.
New York Giants’ rookie linebacker Greg Jones surprised his girlfriend, Mandy Piechowski, with an on-field proposal after winning the Superbowl on Sunday in Indianapolis. Apparently his now fiancée was quite surprised.
What about your proposal story? If you’re getting married within the next year, we want to hear from you. Did he propose in a small intimate setting? Did he use rose petals to lead you to a bathtub filled with petals? Or was it a grand production? Maybe he proposed at Madison Square Garden on the Jumbotron. We know every life has a story and the same goes for proposals.
