Love is in the air…. or the burger

When it comes to proposing there’s a lot of creativity out there.Burger Proposal

Like the guy who proposed with a diamond ring in a burger (would you like fries with that?)  If you are stuck for ideas you could always pop into Taco Bell and buy a packet of sauce (or two).

Maybe he should have gone for the hot sauce!  Does anyone say No?  It would be awkward.  Even more awkward for everyone is when creative ways of proposing go horribly wrong.  Like the guy who hid the ring in the milkshake and his girlfriend swallowed the ring (ummm couldn’t have been very big… c’mon now).  Hidden rings end up getting dropped off bridges, lost in the sand and trapped inside helium balloons.  Go to this website for the stories.

Sometimes though everything turns out as if it was planned by Disney and the surprise proposal goes without a hitch.  Dean and Jodi of Calgary got engaged in Antigua when they were really supposed to be in Los Cabos.  Some last minute high secret negotiations between Dean and yours truly resulted in a change of venue and a dinner engagement on the beach at Sandals Antigua that had Jodi in tears (of happiness of course).

Now of course Dean has raised the bar for all you un-engaged and uncommitted males out there.  It’s way more romantic to propose on a tropical beach than at your local fast food outlet and I personally am happy that the ring is on Jodi’s finger and not at the bottom of the sea off the coast of Antigua.
