1. Be yourself- don’t overdo your proposal and keep it simple by being yourself and being creative.

2. A candle lit dinner- one of the most classic and popular ways to propose. Dim the lights and create a romantic atmosphere with candles setting the perfect scene to propose.

7. Radio proposal- if you know she is listening to the radio, call up the radio station she is tuning into and get them to play ‘your’ favourite song before proposing.
