Default Re: Serious question about popping the question (could use women's advice here)

Ok ..may i speak proffesionaly first?

Send 11 red roses to her place of work..n the card tell her that you will be bringing the 12th yourself.


When you talk to the florist ask for long stem (refers to quality rather then just length). Freedom, is a beautiful red rose..Tell the florist to wrap it in a white box, add petals and ask to use a silk ribbon to tie the box..

The single rose should not be wrapped..offer it to her plain...

Ask the question..simply.."will you?"

Love..what a wonderful ritual

I would suggest, for non-traditional people as you are, instead of having gold and diamonds or expensive material anyway, to try a less expensive route but keeping the meaning of something that it's intended to last forever or at least for a very long time. Nowadays you can get beautiful sterling silver rings with gemstones which have different meanings and properties, as you say she's not the type of woman who thinks diamonds are a girl's best friends, the point it's to show her that you consider the proposal and the whole "ritual" important, she will have something physical to remind her of your love and silver could be more in tune with her personality that diamonds and gold, something that she will wear every day with "gusto" and goes better with her character.
Another point is you can buy new and you don't have to worry about cleaning, you don't need to go mining or spend much time in fairs, state sales, etc., sterling it's easy to find.
I wish you the best and I know somehow you'll make the right decision.
Cloud.

Put those pre-mature butterflys in an incubator QUICK!!! Sorry, but that statement really tickled my funny bone
All the suggestions here are great. I especially loved eXchangers idea of a gumball or candy ring and slowly eating/licking it off while telling her you have an important question to ask, BRILLIANT!! But personally as a woman, back this gesture up with something tangeable, like cloud9's suggestion of a nice silver ring with a beautiful gemstone or two in it. I know that most if not all girls love sparklys, doesn't matter the cost, as long as it shimmers and shines like the glow on your face when you propose. Or perhaps with a poem written from your heart, i love this idea, but then i love poems
Anyhow, congratulations!!! I hope your cruise becomes the most romantic time of your life. Much joy, Raven
