A Do or a Don't: Proposing on Valentine's Day

A Do or a Don't: Proposing on Valentine's Day

Since Valentine's Day has forever been associated with love and romance, it's become a popular day for couples to take their relationship to the next level. But since this day has become such a Hallmark holiday, popping the question on Feb. 14 just seems a wee bit cliche if you ask me. I could be alone on this one so tell me, is proposing on Valentine's Day a do or a don't?

Ahhh I would LOVE it! Then again, I think any day is a good day for a proposal... haha I'm a cheese ball though.

i'm glad my bf held off... which he admitted to me. although, my best got engaged on Friday... would have been wild had it happened to us on the same day....

The following Valentine's Day (and maybe every year after that) would be tough to beat!!Although it may be ideal for some, I really would not want to be proposed to on Valentine's Day, Christmas, New Year's Eve, or my birthday, just because I would want our proposal to be its own day. I have felt that way for sometime. I want to have this special day that I look back on that isn't associated with a holiday (and I will remember - just like everyone remembers the day they became exclusive) and smile.That's just me, though :)

My husband proposed on Valentine's on the beach under the stars after an amazing day together.

I wouldn't want to do Valentine's Day, but that doesn't mean it's not perfect for somebody else.

Of course it's cliche, but honestly, when you've found the love of your life and he's proposing to you, you're not going to give a sh*t where it's happening!! LOL

If you love each other it doesn't matter when. It's all about you and your love.

well...the person I marry [if I decide to actually marry] better know me enough to know that I hate that stupid holiday and hopefully they won't be stupid enough to pull that there. Halloween on the other hand, much more better Holiday to pop the question.

Doesn't matter ......If the man I love with all of my heart is proposing to me I could care less what day it's on or what place he does it at.It would not in any way affect my response nor would it take away the meaning behind it.

Honestly, if this made it easier for him then I would be fine with it. I actually joked and said that all the dates should be the same... the first date, the date we move in together, the date of the proposal and then the wedding. ;) Easy to remember!!

The date wouldn't matter to me as long as the proposal was good.

Just like proposing in a restaurant, it's way too cliche! Find a more original way to propose boys!

Well cliche's aside, proposing on V-day or any other holiday may prove tricky if the couple decides to end their relationship before marriage. Typically, an engagement ring is a gift attached to the stipulation of marriage and if there is no marriage, the ring is returned (kind of like one of those As-Seen-On-TV warranties). However, (in some states) in a court of law, if proposal is made on a holiday and there is no marriage, the ring is considered a flat out gift, and the man has no ties to it after presentation! Worth considering right?!

i think valentine's day is the most ridiculous holiday ever, and always spend it with girlfriends instead of my bf. so that would never happen to me.

A proposal is a proposal. If you love the person, what difference does it make when you get it.
