Chillisauce.co.uk has found today that 24% of men are planning to ask their partner to marry them over Christmas Eve, believing that it’s the best day of the year to pop the question.
Unfortunately, 22% of women believe that this is too early as they would rather their man waited until Valentine’s Day or the anniversary of the day on which they met. Only 6% believed that Halloween was the perfect time to propose!
I put the question to the girls in the office and most said that Valentine’s Day was too cliché. Most women would expect that if any day was selected this one would be as it’s the hub of romance. However, with everything that goes on over Christmas it would certainly be a surprise, but do you want to have to think about wedding plans over a period of high stress levels? They both have their pros and cons.
When it comes to wording- women don’t want to be messed around; a simple ‘will you marry me?’ would suffice. We are not after a long monologue of why they love you or why they want to spend the rest of their lives with you, just the basics will do. Anything before and we know what’s coming and anything after we ignore because we are mesmerised by the ring!
A shocking 15% of women believe that using technology is the best was to propose. In light of actor Dax Shepard who proposed to Kristen Bell over Twitter, clearly other couples are following suit.
Here are Female First none of the girls in the office liked this idea and we would go as far as to say ‘is that all I’m getting?’ if one of our partners proposed in this way.
However, when it was investigated further- 29% thought that email was the most appropriate of all the technologies!? 27% liked the idea of being proposed to over text message, however only 19% thought that Facebook and Twitter was acceptable.
But watch out girls if your man drags his heels with proposing don’t think about trying to reverse the roles as 65% of men would say ‘no’ if their partners proposed to them.
