Love looks super easy, one would believe that there is no big deal thereof but to just give and receive love until the sweet feeling goes extra miles to prove you wrong beyond every doubt. For most people, it normally turns soar and hating get tasty. If you are unfortunate, it would be a nasty experience for you at the end of the day. Due to this, it is understandable why much importance is being attached to proposing marriage – you have found the special one and you want to ask the question the perfect way.
Anyway, what we have here are regarded as the best days to propose to that special someone you want to make your life partner. How did we arrive at them? Well, we did a casual survey. We went about asking people what day they would love their partners to propose marriage to them. While a handful just wanted it to be done anytime, majority hinted that they would want it to be special and memorable. In all, the following are the days that were most named as the best days to ask a lover for marriage.
7 Best Days For Proposing Marriage
1. During Her Birthday
If you are hoping to extensively impress your lover the day you would ask her to marry you, here’s a secret for you. Most of the ladies that constituted the sample of the said casual survey have a fantasy about their lover surprising them on their birthday by asking for marriage. Considering the many numbers of participants who named their birthday, it wouldn’t be mischievous for us to conclude that your girlfriend, somewhere deep down in her heart, is hoping you’d drop on one keen while marking her birth anniversary with her. Owing to this, you may not be able to surprise her as much as you want if you choose to work with this day. Nonetheless, it would be a memorable day for her.
2. Valentine’s Day
It is not far-fetched why many want their lover to ask for marriage on the 14th of February. Valentine’s day is lover’s day. While this is a good day to ask the will-you-marry-me question, it’s hugely anticipated like in birthdays. As such, the surprise element is minimal.
3. Other People’s Wedding
For some reasons we are yet to fully grasp, most ladies want their guys to ask them for marriage while other couples are celebrating and making their union official. Possibly, they desire this to be so because being at other couple’s marriage ceremony reminds them of how much they desire to become their lover’s life partner.
4. After a Fight
One of the participants of our survey said the day her husband asked her to marry him has remained evergreen in her heart because it was a day they had one of their biggest fights. She thought the fight would threaten the over 6 years relationship she’s had with her then-boyfriend but as it happened, the man came by to her apartment after she angrily left his following the fight. She was relieved when she saw him and only imagined he wanted to patch thing up a bit. Little did she know he was going to ask her for marriage. According to her, he didn’t drop on his knee and didn’t even come with a ring. “He just held my hand and said ‘marry me’,” she said.
5. On Christmas Day
Apparently festive periods are a good time for proposing marriage. We asked for reasons for this but was unable to arrive at a concrete and substantial conclusion. We just assumed that people want more reason to be more joyous when everyone is in a celebratory mood.
6. On 31st December
The only reason we separated this from the immediate above was due to what one of the participants said. According to her, he asked her to be his wife in the few last moments of 2011. “He did it just as the countdown to 2012 started, it was as though he wants to begin the new year with me being more than just his girlfriend… It has remained one of the most romantic experiences of my life.”

7. When She’s on her Period…
Gotcha! we don’t mean period as in when she is having her menstrual flow. That was a metaphor for hard times and only a way of informing you that proposing marriage to your lover when she is going through a major challenge in life is powerful. It is tantamount to proving that you want to share in her pains and would always be on her side. Meanwhile, this is the only item on the list that we made up, none of the participants of our survey suggested this in any way.
To wrap thing up, let’s do a bit of the ‘don’t give up on love’ cliche – If you are yet to find your special someone, don’t give up, it’s bound to happen when you least expected it. And, if you are heart-broken, don’t nurse your wounds forever. Smarten-up and wait for the next adventure.
