Romantic Ways to Propose That Fit Her Personality

Once you've decided to ask your dream woman to be your wife, the real fun and games begin. Planning a proposal doesn't have to be stressful—it can actually be an incredible experience. While you're considering romantic ways to propose, you may want to think about how you can give the event a sweet little twist. Choosing a proposal that's as unique as your girlfriend could do just that.

The Sporty Proposal

If your fiancée-to-be has a penchant for all things sporty, choosing a proposal for her doesn't need to be all that tricky. There are many romantic ways to propose that incorporate sporting events, sports stars, and even her own team. Here are some ideas to consider:

  • If she's an extrovert, whisk her away to an arena or stadium game and pop the all-important question live on the "Kiss Cam" screen.
  • Pay for her favorite sports team or star to make a personalized video asking her to be your wife.
  • If she's already on a sports team, enlist the help of her teammates and surprise her at a game with a flash mob proposal.

The Literary Proposal

Book-loving ladies always seem lost in the wonderful world of words. So, what better way to surprise her than by incorporating her bookworm ways into your proposal idea? Here are some proposals you may want to try for yourself:

  • Give her a copy of her favorite novel and use some sleek ribbon to fix the engagement ring between its pages.
  • Take a trip to your local library, head straight to the romance section, then ask her the big question among the books.
  • Pick a destination from her book of choice and take her there for the weekend. It's the perfect setting for the start of your own love story.

The Nature Proposal

Is your girlfriend totally attuned to the natural world? Sometimes, the most romantic ways to propose are also the simplest ones. Use the sheer beauty of nature as the backdrop to your romantic scene. Here are some ideas that will get her heart fluttering:

  • Head for a walk in the woods, drop down to one knee, and "discover" the ring among some leaves on the ground.
  • Take her away for a camping break and propose over some toasted marshmallows by the light of the campfire.
  • Go geocaching (outdoor treasure hunting) together, and make sure the last clue leads her to your stunning engagement ring.

The Travel Proposal

There's no doubt about it—some ladies are just born travelers. If you're dating a woman who wants to see the world, you may need to make it happen. Whether it's jet-setting away on the trip of a lifetime or just proposing at home, here are some ideas your special someone is certain to adore:

  • Take her on a surprise romantic getaway and propose while taking snaps by one of the main tourist spots, such as the Eiffel Tower, Colosseum, or Great Wall of China.
  • Ask her in a language only she understands. If your lady is bilingual, take the time to learn how to ask, "Will you marry me?" in another language. Just make sure you also learn the word for "Yes!"
  • Tell your special lady to pack a bag for the weekend and ask her if she has everything she needs. When she says, "Yes," ask, "Are you sure?" and produce the ring.

Since these ideas are all about individualizing your proposal to match your lady's interests, you may wish to tweak them just a bit to make them fit her best. In fact, there are thousands of romantic ways to propose that your special someone will undoubtedly love. So, before you ask your love to be your wife, think of ways you can make the event as personal as possible.
