Does the Perfect Proposal Idea Exist?

A quick web search for “perfect proposal ideas” will likely get you a results page filled with cute stories and heart-warming photos. But will it really get you that one, shining, glorious example that you can use to pop the question to the most important person in your life?

The cold, hard truth? It probably won’t.

Perfect proposal ideas aren’t universal concepts. What worked great for one person may be the absolute worst idea in world for someone else (I’m looking at you, JumboTron). There are a hundred elements you can consider in great detail, from location to music to time of day to number of people around to what you wear to how you present the ring… the list goes on and on.

And you may even find an example online that fits most of your criteria, and seems like a truly great idea. Only one problem, though — someone’s obviously already done it. Copying someone else’s idea, no matter how good it is, is a fatal blow to individuality.

Have you ever wondered why so much attention is given to diamond engagement rings while nowhere near as much is presented about perfect proposal ideas? Is it because the ring is more important? Of course not. Is it because the ring is the more difficult decision? Certainly not.

The reason is simple: jewelers are experts in jewelry. No one is an expert in proposals.

Most people will only ever propose once in their lives. So the majority of the population simply doesn’t have a chance to become an expert. Essentially, we’re all novices when it comes to proposing.

You can be disheartened by this information if you want, but I take from it a kind of liberation. There are no perfect proposal ideas. No one method is inherently better than the other, and no one idea is likely to get her to say yes more than some other idea.

When everything is said and done, the perfect proposal idea is whatever you want it to be. Put another way: It doesn’t matter how you do it. It matters that you do it, and that you do it from the heart. Ger more information on this topic here. Get more info here:
