I am hoping to propose to my better half in the next 6 months or so (depending on the date I choose) and am wondering which date you think would be more memorable?
Initially I was going to propose on our 5 year anniversary, in the spot we had our second date but it looks like we’ll be moving overseas a month before our anniversary so that may not be an option.
Would love your opinions 🙂

Personally, I wouldn’t want any of those dates. I wanted a completely random date that would catch me off guard. Luckily, that is exactly what he did. 🙂
I think proposing on an important date is both cliche and a little impersonal. Just my personal opinion though!

If the timing worked out, a dating anniversary proposal would be sweet. However, having read many waiting bee threads, I think the best gift you can give her is promptness (assuming she’s been hoping to get engaged and it’s not a complete surprise that you’re even thinking about it). Maybe you could choose the nearest date of significance from the above list and aim for that. Good luck!

I voted Christmas because thats just to me, a nice time to propose, but honestly, the day won’t matter as long as it is thoughtful, sincere and meaningful to both of you. And if you pick a random date she probably won’t see it coming.

Any date would be super awesome, but I’ve always liked the idea of being proposed to on my birthday.
How can you go wrong with cake, presents, a ring, snot and tears?

I’m also not a fan of birthday or holiday proposals. I think a random day gives the element of surprise that makes proposals awesome! 🙂

I was proposed to on St. Patrick’s Day and I loved it! It’s not your typical engagement holiday, but it’s still a fun and sort of magical holiday. Plus, spring is around the corner and there’s very much a feeling of new beginnings. Good luck!

Definitely not Xmas- so many people propose then, so she won’t be the only one she knows getting engaged then. I also feel like Xmas should be about everyone in the family and getting engaged then shifts attention to you. I would prefer a random day for a new memory.

Personally, I’d rather be completely blind sighted and surprised. But also, in my case, ASAP 🙂

We’ll be on a plane headed to Texas for his brother’s wedding on our dating anniversary… not very romantic. But the first time he said he loved me was on Christmas Eve Eve. I sort of hope it’s then. We’re going about our entire wedding TOTALLY backwards, so I suppose it doesn’t matter (we’ve picked a date and told our families already). But he wants to have a real proposal.

I personally don’t have a preference at all date-wise, but I’ve heard A LOT of disparaging remarks about holiday proposals.
How about taking her to that spot the night before you guys leave, so you’ll be making the move as an engaged couple?

I wanted to be proposed to on my birthday, Christmas, V-Day, New Years, or our anniversary. But he picked a random day. I promise, she will love any date you pick!

I wanted a random day, and was told that was what I’d get because he didn’t want me to be ‘expecting it’ so he told me holidays were out…. but he did it on my birthday. I guess through reverse psychology I was more surprised because I didn’t think it would happen then. I was happy to be engaged, but truth be told I would have rather had a random day because on my birthday he had to go to work about 2 hours after proposing so I didn’t get much time to enjoy it together.

I wouldn’t want to be proposed to on any of those dates. I’s want my proposal date to be just that and nothing else… the day of the proposal.
