Some fast advice needed please! I was planning to propose to my girlfriend tomorrow but she seems to be coming down with a cold. Do I go ahead? How ill does she need to be before I call it off and wait? She’s a preschool teacher so she gets quite a lot of colds and I may have to wait a while anyway before I can try again! Would it be better to do it now or wait a couple of months til things can be arranged well again?
Please somebody help me!!!

If she’s just a little sick, absolutely do it! If she’s so sick that she can’t get out of bed, maybe wait for a few days. She’ll want to enjoy the moment and celebrate with her friends. As long as she’s well enough to do that, you’re fine.

My Fiance proposed to me just a few days after I had been bitten on the face by a dog. He waited until I was able to smile again (I wasn’t allowed to because I had stitches on my lip). He had purchased the ring the morning before I was bit. I’m so glad he didn’t wait! My face was messed up in some photos we took that day, but I was so happy!
(As a side note, it was a small dog–a corgi. I had to get only 2 stitches. It wasn’t THAT bad but it was pretty bad looking! I only have 3 small scars on my face).
All in all, propose whenever–it’ll make her happy! 🙂

I don’t wanna say yay or nay…I think you’ll know if it’s right and that’s part of what will make it special.
But the sick part…run out to the store and get some Zicam…I think that’s how you spell it. It kicks all my approaching colds in the butt…I work with young people too! It’s supposed to help prevent colds…so you take it right away when you start feeling icky…and it’s supp to shorten the duration of a cold if you do end up with one.

My fiance proposed on one of the saddest days I’ve had for a while – my friends’ foster children were going back to some less-than-ideal parents. I’m glad he proposed, but it was hard to fully enjoy when I was alternating between ecstatic and miserable.
On the other hand, you could use this to show that you’ll love her “in sickness and in health.” Take care of her while she’s sick and propose either before she gets too sick to function, or after she’s starting to feel better, and I’m sure she’ll love it 🙂

Who cares if she has a cold? Maybe if she were bedridden with the flu you should postpone it, but who honestly puts any aspect of their lives on hold for a cold?

@AlwaysSunny: This. If she’s a bit sick, go for it, it’ll probably make her feel better. If she’s like…. half dead (I kid, but bedridden or whatever) then obviously you might wanna wait until she’s on the mend.

My husband proposed to me while we were working out. I am talking no makeup, oversized clothes, hair in a bun on the top of my head, sweaty…. not my finest hour. I think it will be okay to propose if he has a little bit of the sniffles and a cough. 🙂 Good luck!

my gf had mono a few weeks ago and is still really tired and sleeping a lot during the day. We are in a long distance relationship so don’t see each other very often. she’s coming to see me next weekend and I’m wondering if I should still follow through with my proposal plans even though she may not be completely 100% yet?? And I hear the fatigue can last for months so really does it matter if I pop the question now or a month down the road??

My husband proposed when I had a really bad cold. Since it was a day long surprise proposal, he gave my best friend some dayquil and a note saying that if I didn’t feel up to a day long adventure, we could postpone. It ws so sweet that he cared enough about my health, but I figured he would proposal, so I took the dayquil and went along with it. 🙂
