5 Marriage Proposal Mistakes That Leave Women

Did you know that a man once hospitalized his
girlfriend trying to propose to her?

It’s true! He slipped the engagement ring into her
shot glass and as they toasted to his speech, she
swallowed it! Now, she survived, but they did need
a trip to the emergency room.

In fact, it's ‘embarrassing yet funny’ proposals
like these that remind me of the 5 ways that guys
totally DESTROY this precious moment for women by
making horrendous mistakes. Please don’t make these
mistakes…

1. CREATING A PUBLIC SPECTACLE

Whether it's a party, family get-together or Yankee
game, realize that you should never propose to your
beloved if she wouldn't feel comfortable with a
public proposal. Not only may it embarrass her, but
she may feel pressured to say "Yes," only to tell
you the truth later. Bottom line, think about what
sort of person your lady is: Is she shy, cautious
or a little reserved? Then maybe a private proposal
is the better way to go.

2. "OVER-DOING" THE PROPOSAL

Some men's idea of an amazing proposal is slapping
together all the “usual” romantic things into one
big event and calling it a "marriage proposal."
Sadly, this couldn't be further from the truth. For
example: A man serves the candlelit dinner,
presents her flowers, chocolates, a teddy bear and
then proposes to her.

Yuck. I'm sorry, but if you believe your lady
deserves the most magnificent experience of her
life, then understand that normal "everyday
romance" is only good for… everyday romance! ­ not
a proposal. She’ll never admit it, but she'll most
likely be disappointed.

3. BEING UNPREPARED

You usually only get one shot at your proposal so
you MUST get it right! No pressure :D. Always
rehearse through the things that could go wrong,
create backup plans and please make sure your
proposal idea is safe! If you’re creating a more
elaborate proposal, you’ll need extra caution.
Physically rehearse through the situations,
discover what could go wrong and work out solutions
around them. Get your friends together and
brainstorm the sticky situations that could come up
on the day. Of course, life is unpredictable and
things may change but be prepared the best you can.

4. SPENDING TOO MUCH MONEY

Hang on! You’re probably wondering, “How is
spending TOO MUCH money on a proposal a problem?”
Well it all depends. The problem with money is that
it often becomes a substitute for creativity. As a
result, you get a "nice" memorable proposal but
nothing that's “jaw-dropping!”

5. USING A "DONE TO DEATH" PROPOSAL IDEA

Now here’s the biggest mistake of them all. Yes,
coming up with creative and original ideas to
propose is tough, but it's a must if you want your
moment to be remembered and talked about for years
to come!

Your proposal needs to be personalized to your
girlfriend. What are her favorite hobbies, music
and interests? These are the starting points to an
incredible proposal that everyone will talk about
for years.

While the Eiffel tower, hot air balloons and
getting the waiter to bring out the ring on a
platter are "okay" ideas, they’re not creative and
original enough for the most important and
memorable moment of both your lives.
