We're sure that you have heard about that proposal that went completely wrong at a recent minor-league baseball game. Not only did this man do something as gutsy as proposing in front of a packed stadium, but he was also flat-out rejected. While this is a pretty sad example of a proposal, it's a pretty ordinary proposal idea. Perhaps that's why she said no! We thought that we would offer you a few interesting proposal ideas that worked out just fine.
If you are capable of convincing enough people to put on an exciting musical performance as part of your proposal, why not go for it? A musical number personalized for your special someone can be an amazing and memorable experience. While several have attempted this idea, one stood out to us specifically. In 2012, a man named Roger proposed to his girlfriend, Jeanie, by organizing a choir and group of 100 dancers on Facebook. They performed Frankie Valli's Can't Take My Eyes Off Of You while Roger got down on one knee. Jeanie, naturally, said yes.
Does your lover like reading one newspaper in particular? For a slightly ink-stained touch, take out a full-page ad in that paper and pop the question while she reads it. The only thing left to do is wait for them to flip to the page and get ready with the ring. This is what Steve, a real-estate agent, did for his long-time girlfriend, Hayley. The ad he took out was in the newspaper the Eastern Daily Press and contained a very special message: “I love you with all my heart. We’ve been with each other for years and my love for you grows more each year. You are a beautiful and caring person and have always been there for me 100% through the bad times. My family adores you and I cannot imagine my life without you in it. Now we are expecting our first child I hope you will say yes and make me the happiest man alive.”
Would you do anything for love? Well one man, Hector, did as he pulled traffic to a standstill. This brave biker got 300 of his biker friends to stop traffic so that he could propose to his girlfriend on one of Los Angeles' busiest highways. He even had the exhaust pipes of the bikes release hot pink fumes. Luckily, no charges were pressed against Hector for this crazy stunt and he got away with it!

....This is how you know we are steadily moving into the future. One man, Timothy, proposed to his girlfriend, Audrey, using posters of memes he held up to the window of a restaurant she was at. Timothy referenced Puss-in-Boots, pensive dinosaur, and even fist-pump baby. On each meme was written a note specific to their relationship and finally, the cue card with the proposal itself. While this might not be for everyone, Audrey certainly liked it because she said yes without any hesitation.
