    My Fiance proposed walking home from dinner on our anniversary. I agree with the many people who have said it depends on his personality and your relationship!

    Also, your living situation would probably contribute, as if you are not living together it could be a bit wierd to propose “at home” as you wouldnt have time to yourselves! Unless, you are living alone separately i guess.. ok ignore me…

    Mine officially proposed in our bedroom while I was folding and putting away laundry.  Afterwards we went to pick up chinese takeout and then we came home and watched Sanford and Son.  It was awesome and exactly us.  To be honest, I don’t think any of my married friends got engaged during a vacation or a trip.  Usually it always on a holiday.

    He told me to pack fall clothes because we were going to spend 3 days at a local place to celebrate getting into grad school.. and we actually flew to Paris (left Friday night and returned Tuesday night, our time). He proposed our first night. πŸ™‚

    We went out to dinner on New Year’s Eve.  We had planned a quiet New Year’s Eve at home, just the two of us.  He proposed on the couch about 9:00.  He had planned to do it at midnight — but said he just couldn’t wait!

    MY Fiance proposed during a trip to Las Vegas! He proposed at the end of dinner at a nice restaurant. It was so fun to be on vacation in Vegas for the next few days basking in the engagement glow! πŸ™‚

    My Fiance proposed at home, in our apartment.  It was so sweet and romantic.  He had asked me a few weeks before what my favorite number was, I told him 3.  His favorite number is 25.  He proposed on 3/25, which is actually the day before my birthday and 5 days before his.  He addressed my birthday card, which he insisted on giving me one day early, To My Beautiful, New Fiance.  We had SO MUCH excitement for like a week!

    He proposed at “home” literally. We were just sitting on the couch watching TV and I flipped channels to a wedding show and he said “so… you want to get married?”

    Fiance proposed in Costa Rica up at a waterfall in the rainforest..we had planned the trip about 7 months prior. once the trip got closer, he said he KNEW he had to propose there..he did a fabulous job! plus, it was probably the only time he was able to surprise me because i didn’t think the ring was going to be in until right when we returned from our trip πŸ™‚

    My Fiance took me on a “surprise” trip to St.Thomas/St. John just before Christmas. He knew that one of my favorite spots ever is a beach on St. John called Trunk Bay. He took me there at sunset πŸ™‚ 

    Try not to think to much about where yours will be, try to let it be a surprise. I wish I hadn’t tried to be so nosey haha but I can’t help it I suppose.

    My Fiance proposed in the chapel of the church where we met, where he later asked me out… and where we are getting married. 

    Really, it depends on your lifestyle, your couple activities, and timing then going somewhere exotic.

    My FH propesed to me on the morning of my 20th b-day. I was at his dads house, raking up a huge pile of leaves (century old maple trees are my nemesis!) totally involved in my “work” I remember he said “M, can I ask you something?” I whipped around, totally pissssed that he was “bothering” me (assuming it was a dumb question like “do you know where my socks are?” you have no idea how many times I hear that a day), like a harpy I screeech “Whaaaaaaat?!” And there he is, on his knee, grinning like a fool (he likes to get a rise out of me), holding a ring box. I just started laughing, it was great.

    Not long after sharing a laugh, we shared some tears too. He took me out for supper later that day for b-day/engagement fun.
