I am heavily thinking of biting the bullit & asking my awesome girlfriend to marry me, but I want to be creative with it & I cant think of anything, Ive heard her say that the baseball game proposal is tacky & we dont go to ballgames much anyway, I wouldnt mind doing something with cars, like @ the dragstrip, But I really want to make it about HER, I am the big car nut, she doesnt mind cars, but I want it to be more about her, Also she gets embarassed quite easily,(shy gal) so I know she would enjoy it more if it was something private, not in a big crowd of people, where she could feel free to cry, scream, or head for the bushes... any ideas?

Forget the car aspect, you want it to be about her.

How about a sunset picnic at the beach and as the sun goes down you say something like "As the light of the sun leaves us, will you promise not to let the light of your love leave me and be my wife?"

Women are suckers for that corny BS.

I think it'd be cool to be watching a movie on your dvd player and have it break at the right moment with a video of you asking her to marry you. It's private and I'm assuming you watch movies together?

Do something nice and mellow for your special woman. Get creative, but don't make it corny either.

You can always use the romantic Irish proposal (yes, my family is Irish) which is "How would you like to be buried with my family?

Involve your car somehow (drive it, do it in there, etc). That way she will have sentimental feelings for the car and never want you to get rid of it . If she does then just say "but honey, the car was there when I proposed" .

good idea, especially if you think you will ever need a 'reason' to keep your car in the picture forever!!

hey..... are you guys lucky enough to have a drive-in theatre in your neck of the woods? that would be a cool place to keep the car involved ......

and then there are always the cliche gigs .... the ring placed in a surprise location like on the side of her dessert dish at supper or in a glass of champagne all that hollywood stuff .... etc etc ... but you know her the best.... and it sounds like you are nicely aware of her bashfullness ..... so you are on the right track keeping it kinda low key ..... but tim is right.... keep the car in the picture!!! best of wishes!

I read a story one time about a guy that traveled a lot. He was taking a red eye home, and had his g/f meet him at the airport. He gave 24 red roses out to passengers on the plane along with a pic of his g/f. As they got off the plane they one by one handed her the rose and said, "Josh loves you". Then Josh got off and proposed with the rock on one knee. I always thought that was kinda cool. Mushy, but cool.

Don't know if you travel?

This just might be the answer to all your problems get a big cardboard box and have your family help you wrap it up like a giant Christmas present w/ a big a$$ bow on top make sure to make a top lid for it and two sides that when the top lid is removed that the sides fall down to the side of it and there you sit on a chair inside of the box have one of your family members that you can trust not to muck it up and have them bring a video camera so that they can say that they will record it for you to see later to see how happy she was when she opened it up and bring you fianc? to where you are hiding in the box w/ your car there (this would work best at your house in the driveway) as well and have them give her a letter hand written by you of course telling her in the letter that you wished that you could be there w/ her but something urgent came up at the worst possible moment that you must take care of today like driving a friends car home after he got it fixed after it broke down on him or the like and that he came and picked you up in a borrowed car so that he could go get his and he needed someone to drive the borrowed car back for him and that she is to choose either the car or what's in the box i.e.(Monty Halls Lets Make a Deal) choice #1 your car or choice #2 what's in the box w/ you and the engagement ring in it "only have them tell her that it's worth far more than the car and if the choice was theirs that they would choose #2".

After this all I can say is good luck and don't screw it up. J/K

LOL - great advice!

If you want to be different and memorable, how about a "once in a lifetime" event? I met a guy who proposed to his (now) wife on a hot-air ballon ride over a real pretty area.

I decided to stay away from the old cliche proposals (the restaurant thing, etc) when I proposed to my wife. She had this thing for Sweettart candies so I took the ring and tied it to a roll of them with a little bow. I then left it on her seat as I went into the airport to pick her up (I was a wreck because I envisioned the '65 getting stolen along with the ring lol). As she got in the car I pretended something was wrong with the car so I was looking under it (the whole one knee thing). She then put the candy on the floor lol. I asked her if she wanted a sweettart and she said "no" and then I asked her if I could have one. As she was starting to unwrap it she realized what was on it lol.

Btw, no I didnt use the car for the reason that I suggested, it was the car we took on our first date and what she used to hit on me ("Is that your Mustang?" lol).

I always thought a great idea would be to get her into a public place, along with family members, maybe like a picnic at a park. Then rent a mideaval suit of armor and a horse dressed in battle gear, then ride up while Carmina Burano's "O Fortuna" is playing in the background, dismount, kneel down and have someone dressed in a servant costume hand you the ring on a white pillow to present to her...

But hey, I'm a simple minded guy without an imagination.

Do you realize how hard it is to ride in a full suit of armor? Let alone learn how to do it correctly so not to make a horse's rear out of oneself as they fall off the horse?

Gresat idea if you can pull it off though.

Just an update here. We broke up. JK!
Her birthday is thursday & I have a big party lined up & am taking friday off work (she doesnt know this yet) & I am going to propose to her friday morning, While listening to the radio driving in my cougar, I was wondering if this might be doable, Do you think a radio station would help me out for free? If I asked them to just say something like, Kristin if your out there, riding around in that Cougar, your boyfriend Kel has made a special request.. for you to take his hand in marrige & (blah blah, I do have it written out better) & ask them to play a sappy song that she likes (@ which time when she is freaking out I would give her the ring) ....I know radio stations have a schedule to stick to & they dont much for free, & Ive tried to call the station I always listen to, but I can never get thru, so maybe someone here will know?

Here's another one... swallow the ring, then start complaining of bad stomach pains, have her go to the hospital with you, once the doctor performs the Xray and puts it up on the viewer and clicks on the light at that very moment propose. Now how she gets the ring you'll have to figure that one out.

Just hope she doesn't try to stick the ring on her finger real fast

thx guys,
...We went for a drive in my cougar while I gathered the guts to ask her, drove over to the river, walked down the path to a little lookout for weir, She was reading an information plaque about the area & turned around, I was on one knee (....mainly because I was shaking so bad that I couldnt stand anymore), She was bewildered, but grinned a mile wide & said yes.. She later told me she thought I was playing a joke on her again, because I always teased her by everytime I was tying my shoe or reaching for something in my pocket I would pretend to propose... you can only cry wolf so many times I guess. But luckily she consented.

...We went for a drive in my cougar while I gathered the guts to ask her, drove over to the river, walked down the path to a little lookout for weir, She was reading an information plaque about the area & turned around, I was on one knee (....mainly because I was shaking so bad that I couldnt stand anymore), She was bewildered, but grinned a mile wide & said yes.. She later told me she thought I was playing a joke on her again, because I always teased her by everytime I was tying my shoe or reaching for something in my pocket I would pretend to propose... you can only cry wolf so many times I guess. But luckily she consented.

Now that sounds more like real life.

Hope it all works out for you two, hard times these days on relationships.

I would have suggested the line of BS I used to propose, but hell, that was 41 years ago & I cant remember! Musta been OK tho, she still here, riding the same broom and cackling, waiting for "her" special day, Halloween.
