About This Quiz
What is supposed to be one of the happiest days of your life can be ruined with the wrong type of proposal. The thing about proposals is, there must be so much pressure on the person doing the proposing! How can they know for sure that the person will say yes? Should they still propose even if they aren't 100% sure? Those are just the beginning questions. Once they decide to pop the question, then they have to figure out how they're going to do it. With plenty of movies, TV shows and books to use as references, it's important to choose something that is special to you and your significant other and your relationship.
There's also a lot of pressure on the person being proposed to. What if they don't like how their partner proposed, but they want to say "yes"? Do they tell them? That would be soul-crushing. Or maybe you're not even in a place where you're thinking about getting engaged. How you react to certain proposal styles can tell a lot about where you're at in your relationship, and if you're in a relationship at all.
Want us to guess your relationship status? Tell us how you'd react to these proposals and we will!
How would you react if someone proposed to you in front of their family, but not yours?
I'd second guess if they're the one.
Does an engagement on a private beach with a hidden photographer sound nice?
Sounds like it's not private if there's a photog.
That sounds like a dream.
That's basically how I got engaged.
It sounds nice, but not realistic.
Sometimes people get engaged in their homes. Does that sound nice to you?
It does sound really nice.
Sounds very romantic and personal.
It would be nicer if afterwards all of our friends and family jumped out for an impromptu engagement party.
What if your significant other included your pet in the proposal?
That would be truly shocking.
I'm not into that at all.
What about a photo-booth proposal?
It would be cool to see my face as it's happening.
Not the most romantic, but cute I guess.
If photo booths mean something to your relationship, it's a great idea.
Are you the kind of person who would enjoy a scavenger hunt that ended with your partner down on one knee?
That sounds like the most amazing idea ever.
I hope my significant other thinks of that when the time comes.
If the proposal happened at a family dinner in a restaurant, would you be pleased?
That would actually be okay.
I would be the happiest new fiancé in the world.
That seems like the best option, honestly.
I wouldn't want it to happen in a public place.
You're on a tropical vacation, and your partner starts giving a speech about how much they love you. You know a proposal is coming. Are you happy?
How could I not be happy? That sounds like a fairy tale.
Yes! The pictures would be amazing.
Sounds expensive, but it you've got the money, go for it.
That's exactly how I hope it happens.
Some people are really into scrapbooking. How would you feel if your partner made a scrapbook of all of your relationship memories, and at the end there was a page for a photo from your engagement, then you look over and they have a ring?
Did Nicholas Sparks come up with that?
That's pretty, no, super cheesy.
That's the most romantic thing I've ever heard.
Any man who thinks of and executes that deserves an award.
This one might ruffle some feathers. What if the ring was hidden in a heart cutout in a romance novel?
That's double the romance.
How dare you deface a book!
If it was a mass-produced book and not one from my personal collection, I guess it's okay.
Sounds like something you'd read about in a book.
Is a love poem written by your love how you envisioned getting engaged?
No way, but I've seen that in movies.
I haven't really thought about it, but that's cute.
That's so old-fashioned and amazing.
What about a love song preceding the proposal? Is that something you would like?
If the person was singing a song I already loved
Yes, but only if the song was original
I think that would be too funny to be romantic.
If it was playing on a speaker or something, maybe
Some people bond over their love of exercise and adventure. If your partner proposed at the gym, would you say yes?
If it's the right person, I don't care where they do it.
That sounds like a nightmare.
I think there was a collective sigh on that one.
Imagine you're hiking, and at the top of a hill overlooking nature at its finest, your significant other proposed. How would you feel?
I'd feel on top of the world.
I'd be afraid of falling, but I'd be so so happy.
That is the absolute best engagement scenario I can imagine.
I'd feel sweaty and out of breath.
Let's get a little cliché here. What if the proposal happened in a hot air balloon?
I'm terrified of heights, so no thank you.
I mean, it's pretty unoriginal.
I could think of worse ways to get proposed to.
Circling back to the trip down memory lane, what if your partner made a home video of all of the photos you've taken together, and at the end was written on the screen "Will you marry me?"
I think I'd get bored before the end of the movie.
I could be very into that.
That's a pretty original idea, come to think of it.
As long as I can wear pajamas, I'm happy.
Puzzles are a great rainy-day activity, but what if your proposal got turned into a puzzle that you had to put together?
I feel like that would be stressful for the other person.
I do really like puzzles.
I'd definitely figure it out before finishing the puzzle.
We love puzzles, so that would be very thoughtful.
Calling all wordsmiths! If the proposal were worked into a crossword puzzle, is that something you would like?
Do not give my boyfriend that idea.
I would maybe like it if it was easy.
It shouldn't be that much work.
Would you be into an amusement park proposal?
If we were off of a ride, yes
Only if it was in front of Cinderella's Castle
I'm not really into amusement parks in general.
That sounds super whimsical.
This one takes a bit of planning, but if your partner pulled you up on stage at a concert and proposed, what would you say?
I'd be too shocked to talk.
Depends on whose concert it was
I'd say yes, but probably because I felt pressured.
How would you react if your love got an airplane to spell out the proposal in the sky?
I would definitely say yes.
I'd be impressed that they pulled it off.
I would love for that to be the way I get engaged.
Dang I wish my SO did that.
You're at your all-time favorite place in the world and your significant other decides to propose right in the middle of it. What do you do?
Cry so much I can't get words out
Feel so grateful for the person I chose to love
Be embarrassed that people are watching
Wonder how much time and money it took to coordinate that
What if the proposal was written in a full-page ad in the newspaper?
I would never see it, because I don't read the newspaper.
I would be so surprised, since newspapers are kind of out of style.
I would definitely say yes! How thoughtful is that?
It's a casual day at the beach when your partner unexpectedly proposes. Is that something you would like?
During the day? No thanks
Maybe if it was a romantic dinner on the beach
Depends how I look that day
Nah. Beaches are too crowded.
Your significant other basically has four dozen roses worth of petals set out in a trail to the proposal spot. Are you swooning?
That is pretty swoon-worthy.
OK, but who has to clean up the rose petals?
Better not be on my white comforter
If you woke up in the morning and found that written on the fridge in magnet letters was "Will you marry me?," how quickly would you say yes?
So fast, because that is so cute
Honestly, I probably wouldn't notice for a while.
Have I had my coffee yet?
How would you feel if you woke up with an engagement ring on your finger and your partner waiting with champagne and breakfast in bed, plus the ultimate question?
I'd be like, are you serious?
Wait - that actually sounds amazing!
I'd wake up as soon as they tried to put the ring on. I'm a light sleeper.
Sounds like an easy way out
Your significant other has cooked a three-course meal, poured you your favorite wine and is acting super nervous. When they finally pop the question, what do you do?
Tell them to relax, because of course I'll marry them
Cry, and then they cry, and we live happily ever after
I say yes and make sure they're doing the dishes.
Fall into their arms and tell them I love them
What if your partner just changed their relationship status to "engaged," and that was their way of proposing?
That sounds like something a college student would do.
I would be very disappointed.
This is maybe the most common one so far. How would you feel if the ring was hidden in your dessert at a restaurant?
I would for sure eat it without knowing.
Engagement ring and dessert? Win, win!
I'd feel like they put no thought into it.
I'd rather it be in champagne.
