    Is she the type of person who would enjoy a public proposal? Or would she find it slightly embarassing? That's really the most important thing.

    Wash your balls!

    Actually, sounds like a good plan. I find the whole idea of proposal so awkward. You're made to follow this bizarre ritual where you hide and then reveal the ring, but only on one knee, and generally in a public place (greatly adding to your embarrassment in case of rejection). There's no hope for spontaneity, so your only bet is to somehow deliver an original take on the tried-and-true. Not easy.

    My bet is that she susses out what's going on as soon as you present the box.


    Personal hygiene... check!

    Too cheesy for me but I suspect you know what your girl likes. Good luck.

    Good luck.

    My experience is that all her girlfriends for the next 10+ years will ask, "How did he propose". And, she will have a very good story to tell. Well done!

    I hate those fucking commercials.

    +1. I cringe whenever I see or hear them.
