Need ideas to propose to my beautiful girlfriend
Just pour your heart and feelings. Do the classic down on one knee thing.. That's what I would want!
This wouldn't work... She posted this poll so therefore simple will not fly. :-)
Well Derek, any decision about how you'll ask? Plenty of opinions here to choose from.
Well I can't choose any of these... The girlfriend read all the comments. Haha!
Oh no! Not a big deal though, I know you'll come up with something great. :)
I hope so! No pressure! Haha!
Get her a gun with 'till death do us part' engraved/anodized on the slide.
Would be nice to have a ring in the case though too
THIS is going to happen!
I was going to get a matched set for her wedding gift but I found something she needed more
What was that?
I got her a stand mirror jewelry cabinet with some nice new necklaces bracelets and earrings in it. We will find out in 4 weeks if she likes it
I was going to get a couple pk380s in anticipation of ccw in il but it's kinda pointless
Move to Texas!
Walther has a colt authorized 1911 clone in 22 that would work pretty good. Idk how comfortable she is with larger frames. You could also do a xdm or something
She prefers my 1911 over anything else. I plan on making one with a Caspian frame and slide.
Focus less on the proposal and more on the marriage--show her that the best really is yet to be.
Don't buy into the culture of doing something to post on YouTube, or even photograph.
Don't involve any technological devices.
I would.... But she posted this poll when I was in the shower. And she told me that the proposal better be "fabulous" or else she'll say no until it is. :-)
Does that concern you?
I should clarify; the "fabulous" part should be that you're asking in the first place. There is not an award for "best proposal," the reward is that you spend your lives together.
Go to a baseball game. Do something crazy until you get on the jumbo screen. Then you get down on one knee and ask.
She told me she'd leave me if I proposed that way.

Guess who posted this poll............
First: Do you know the answer already?
If you know then make it special and public! Something like take her to an mexican restaurant hire a mariachi band and have the host/hostess deliver a bouquet of flowers to the table with a ring tied around
it then go to your knee and tell her how you feel and ask her the question.
If you do not know: Candle light, soft music, flowers and flower petals all over special meal (keep it light) and then go
to one knee and tell her what she means to you and ask her the question.
Do I know the answer? Well I have a pretty good idea since I didn't actually post this poll. I woke up and found it.
LMAO! Then I would go with some variation of option one. ;)
Well she did say that if the proposal not "fabulous" she will say no until it is.
That is great. Now you just have to be creative. Have fun with it.
The trick will be suprising her ;)
Come up with your own original idea. :-)) I proposed over the phone.
Well at least somewhat classier than a text message. ;$
Back then there were no text messages. She was in Chicago, I was in SoCal. I finally realized I was actually in love with her and couldn't wait until I was able to fly back to Chicago. It all worked out fantastically.
Propose loudly in the middle of a televised Sheila JacksonHyphenLee rally. Steal the frekin' spotlight and put it on your girlfriend. Lead into it as though you had a legit question for SJHL. The news will cover it for sure!
I love this idea! I'm sure Sheila won't mind losing the spotlight one bit. (watch out for the bodyguards)
You've never seen anyone get in between SheJack and a camera.... It's like getting between a Kodiak bear and her cub.
ROFL. I'm sure that's true!
Congrats!!! Best of luck to you.
How exciting! Whatever you decide to do just make sure you keep us updated. :)
I sure will! Here's the first update. I didn't post this poll....... But I'll give you one guess who did! :-)
lol... Time for you to start taking the hint! She sounds like a keeper!
She is a keeper! And there is no hint anymore. It's a matter of getting the ring. We just bought a house so money is not as plentiful as it once was.
Is there any way you could shoot an engagement ring onto her finger without hurting her?
God I wish!
Whatever you do, make sure you have a sneaky way to get pictures of the moment. Those will be valuable to both of you later.
Yep! I had my brother hide a ways away(outdoors) and vide the proposal. I also acted like I was taking a timed pic and put my cameras on record. My wife and I still enjoy watching the video
Do NOT propose in public with cameras and friends watching unless you have absolutely no doubt she will say yes. Even then -- just don't do that.
I know she will say yes. How do I know? She posted the poll. :-)
Try to incorporate something you both have in common. My sister just got engaged to her boyfriend at the finish line after they did a half iron man together. It was so sweet because it connected their shared interest of triathlons.
So Derek and his gf should go to the gun range and empty a few magazines. I like it.
Sure :) if that's what they both enjoy!
Would it be possible to shoot "Will you marry me?"
"Honey, I am a straight shooter, and you just hit the bullseye to my heart. What you say we tie the knot?
"Honey. Till death do we part. Wanna see a sample?"
^^^^That's pretty smooth if I do say so myslef, but what do you expect from a ladies' man?
How many GFs have you had again, political?
Shut up! I am just being picky! :)
"To be or not to be whether Tis nobler in the heart of thy girlfriend to become my wifey?
That was great, Emily.
That would be awesome! Haha!
Hold out the ring and say, "You win!".
My romantic hubby took me to the church where he wanted to get married, knelt by the altar, & asked me if there, in that room, I would make him the happiest of men for eternity. He had flowers on the altar & the ring. Today's our 13th anniversary.
Was that after a session by any chance?
Why yes, yes it was. You're good, Okie!
I can totally picture it. Our sealing rooms are just outside the Cel room.
We were sealed in Oakland. How about you guys?
Los Angeles, I grew up in that area.
My wife graduated from FIDM. We met in Irvine.
Okie tell us how romantic you are!
There's not enough okie to go around. I don't want to give the girls here a hot flash from okie fever. ;-)
I bet your wife has to whip you into shape all the time. Who is more conservative? Your wife?
We're both extremely right-wing. I may be a tad more though.
Who disciplines the kids the most?
So she must discipline you a lot! Lol
I bet you keep her laughing though.
We're both messes in our way.
So that means the children are double messes.
They're not messes at all. We didn't allow it. :-)
I bet you were the little kid who corrected the teacher!
Take her to a park and find a bench. Give her an iPad with pictures on it in slideshow of you and her. Make sure they get more sappy as you move on. Have the last pic be a ring or say look down and when she looks down or looks confused you be on…
The ground on one knee, ring open
Cheesy....no just no!
Aww I think that's adorable.
Pumpkin, the goal is to give MJ a hard time. ;)
Just don't fart while bending Down like MJ did.
Tell her that she's prettier than refried beans on a tortilla.
Did that work for you?
Tell her she's the prettiest thing "since your last girl friend."
Tell her that you don't mind hearing her talk nearly as much as your old girl friends.
"Your perfume smells better than my trash can."
Best way to win a girl's heart
Tell her she's like the internet to your network card.
Give her a hand-drawn picture of herself and tell her that it took you 3 hours to get the shading on her upper lip just right.
Build her a cake and present it to her.
"When we get married, you can be the racket, and I will provide the balls."
Grow up, political!
Tell her that you noticed her fart silently on your last date and you didn't even mind it.
Tell her that she's so sweet that you'd want to marry her even if she were a man.
...your fart was like Cupid's bow stabbing me in the nose!
Tell her that since she's so sweet you e accelerated the terms in the prenup from 10 years to 5.
You are so hot you make AT&T stadium (home of the spurs) feel cool.
You cause more pain than a tickle, but less pain than paying your taxes.
As you take her home one night, ask her, "Did you enjoy being with me tonight?"
Her: "Yes! I love you sweetie."
You: How would you like to enjoy everyday with me for the rest of our lives. (Get down on a knee, take her hand)
Will you marry me?
You can thank me later, Derek! Jk! :)
Best of luck with the proposal, busy most importantly the marriage. Tell the preacher to tie that knot tight for better or for worse!
But* not busy!
I always found the idea of embarrassing my wife in front of strangers weird. So I took her to her favorite place, the horse stables. And I asked her to marry me in the "muck", alone with just ponies watching. She loved it.
And then she carried you away on a horse just like Kip's wife did with him in Napoleon dynamite?
That's awesome, Derek! Congratulations. I'm not super creative so no ideas here though...
