Oh, you're so unromantic!

So are we the least romantic people in the UK? A survey by GMTV on marriage proposals found that the once traditional romantic proposal is going out of fashion and that one in three couples simply "agree together" to get hitched. The survey found that 31 per cent agreed to get married without a proposal from either side. The least romantic place in the country is apparently North Wales, where 41 per cent had no proposal story to tell.

I recall a friend had planned to propose to his girlfriend atop a mountain in Switzerland on a skiing holiday. In the end, he blurted out his proposal in her parent's spare bedroom! Can you prove the survey wrong - are we an unromantic bunch?
