What is a dramatic proposal?
Dramatic proposal can be categorized as anything that out of the ordinary. Something that makes people gasp when you propose, so a dramatic proposal can really be anything special like that.
What type of woman appreciates a dramatic proposal?
The type of woman that appreciates a dramatic proposal seems to be the type of woman that likes the unexpected, likes to have the attention given to her deservently so, by the person that she is in love with, that's I think the type of woman who loves a dramatic proposal.
Is there a danger to dramatic proposals?
There's a danger to proposals in general but to dramatic proposals I think the danger is magnified a little bit. If you go a little bit too over the top she may be a little bit taken aback by it. If her preference is more of a private proposal and you go with something more public, then it may not be the proposal she dreamt of. So there is a slight danger to that.
What are some inexpensive ways to make a proposal dramatic?
Actually by working with the jewelry store that's helping you choose the engagement ring, you can have the engagement ring already chosen, plan a day to bring her back under the auspices of shopping, and have a huge sign placed in the case that says, "Honey, will you marry me?" surrounding the ring that you've chosen. That's pretty dramatic and it catches her off guard.
What are some elaborate ways to make a proposal dramatic?
Guys that have gone all out. We have had folks that have rented a plane to sky write their proposal. We have had hot air balloon ride proposals. We have had proposals at the top of the Eiffel Tower. Scuba diving proposals. There is all types of elaborate ways to make the proposal something she will never ever forget. But remember, it has to be something that she is looking forward to and something that she has indicated that she would be open to.
What is the most dramatic proposal you've heard of?
Actually helping a young man suit up in a shining suit of armor and lifting him onto a white horse, and have him gallop across a park up to the picnic that his girlfriend was having with her family. That was absolutely elaborate. He made it, and she said yes.
