Comments for en-gb 30 Sun 13 Jul 2014 11:43:30 GMT+1 A feed of user comments from the page found at royperu I'm not really a romantic person and marriage is not something that I wish right now but I think that if I had to do that, I'd just say it in a simple way. And if had to do something romantic for one time in my life, Why not putting candles in the ground in front of her house with her name and the words 'Will you marry me?' I think....By the way could someone tell me if there's any difference between 'Will you marry me?' and 'Would you marry me?' Please ...thanks..XD Sat 11 Jun 2011 19:06:39 GMT+1 kayaserhatt83 This post has been Removed Mon 06 Jun 2011 20:38:23 GMT+1 maihue My ideal proposal is in a green park, on a sunny day, little windy morning, I hope that he will play guitar and sing a love song, then give me the proposal with a bouquet of yellow rose... Sun 05 Jun 2011 14:11:05 GMT+1 HELGA My ideal marriage proposal is in Rio de Janeiro - Corcovado - only me and my future husband.

Wed 01 Jun 2011 21:10:33 GMT+1 Soler My ideal marriage proposal is In Gondola in Venice with one nice flower and with ring . Of course the proposal must be very natural and must be done by [heart], for finish with long and passionate kissing.Oh, very romantic! [Edited by a Moderator: a hearth is another word for a fireplace. I think you mean to say 'by heart'.] Tue 31 May 2011 15:47:54 GMT+1 vikosss We all dream about a fantastic proposal like in movies, but in a real life everything is not so romantic. As for me, I have been in the status of a wife for one year and before the wedding we had dated with my boyfriend (my husband now) for 5 years. We understood that we loved one another, but there was the high time to advance our relations. Moreover, we wanted to get our own accomodation (I live in Belarus and we have a special system: you may get cheaper accomodation if you are "a young family"(although, it may mean that you'll get that accomodation when you are a grandmother)). So one evening while siting on the sofa, watching TV and discussing our future appeared a question: Why not to marry? OK. So. That's my example. but frankly speaking sometimes I have a strong desire to reproach my husband with such a proposal... Tue 31 May 2011 12:44:21 GMT+1 jenny For me, a simple and straight forward marriage proposal from the man I love would be the most wonderful thing. Remember to choose the one you love him and he loves you, then no matter what the proposal is, everything will be wonderful. Fri 27 May 2011 16:18:24 GMT+1 rahat i am only 22 years old. i am confused to tell something about a significant subject like marriage. in my opinion marriage is the most eventful occasion after birth and death. so decision about this has huge impact on our life . i don't think we should make our decision to marry someone at instant. before of this we should know each other better.if she is attached to you and you think she is the girl and you are made for each other then you can propose her . to be honest proposing someone directly is much better. however there is a risk if she refuses you. for this i suggest to know each other before. one think can be mentioned that it also varies from country to country as well as different culture..... Fri 27 May 2011 08:33:22 GMT+1 love you 12 in my opinion a marriage proposal need not romantic but natural.she and i take acamp in the wonderful forest .it will be a starry night.everything is slient,we could hear each heart-beating.i hold her in my arms then i tell her the happiness, the sadness when i loved her.i whisper in her ear that i love you.then, kiss her tenderly Thu 26 May 2011 11:08:42 GMT+1 KaterinaKK As already stated above, does not matter what the proposal of marriage would be, it is important WHO make it. Girls have to not forget that most men are not actors, billionaires and romantic heroes from romance novels, reading in youth and expect them to not only make a marriage proposal, but also make a romantic Performance and Show, in my opinion, is not entirely correct. The main thing is to hear that the man with whom you are willing to spend all life wants the same. This is ideal. Thu 26 May 2011 10:03:15 GMT+1 abdulkadir I think wedding proposal should be romantic.of course , romantic tips can change human to human. Thu 26 May 2011 06:33:17 GMT+1 marcovecellio Hi everyone, In my opinion, marriage is only a formalities, if two people love each other and want to live tigether fot the rest of their days, the don't need to marry. when you are married, you can sometimes feel forced to do something and many times you don't realy and deeply love the other person you stay with she/he only because you are married. it is a forcing. It is a bed thing and it shouldn't be so, however that is realy.In conclusion, It doesn't matter if talk the woman instead the man, it's only a stupid. Wed 25 May 2011 14:32:54 GMT+1 bajeeda1 hi everyone, i think it should be simple as much as it can be Wed 25 May 2011 01:22:37 GMT+1 insane_alx I think it will be wonderful do this on a happy day or a romantic dinner, the best place would be in Paris (for me) or Canada but most of the times it would be impossible for both, so in that case I´m sure that can be great if you´re with the correct person and you already in love. Wed 25 May 2011 00:26:50 GMT+1 Jo It should be happened in a place with little music or no sound and no one would [disturb] the serious thinking of the girl while the man is making his proposal(romance/simple). Don't say yes/I do in a moment just affected by romance without deep thinking, because you need to spend a life long to think/feel what love is.Maybe girl can make proposal to a man too......!?[Edited by Moderator: I think you mean to say 'no one would disturb' or nobody would interrupt the proposal. 'Distribute' means to share out or allocate something.] Tue 24 May 2011 18:06:22 GMT+1 Olga Stepanenko this just seconds ago and got inspired. While watching the clip I was having same emotions as that girl in the cinema. Great) Thanks indeed BBC)I would like my marriage proposal to be very unexpectable, something like when having a dinner as we have it everynight together but without any anticipation of the upcoming... and then he says he would like to ask me about smth very important and he makes a pause just assuming an air of seriousness and says looking into my eyes "Will you marry me?" and gives me a ring. That should ideally shock me, otherwise if there is any romantic stuff around I can guess it right away and there will be no fun afterwards.Nothing else, without thousands of other words, just being simple, confident, honest. Tue 24 May 2011 18:00:19 GMT+1 BBC Learning English Hi everyone, Have you seen this proposal video, which was published online recently? I think you'll enjoy it. Learning English Tue 24 May 2011 11:38:45 GMT+1 bana hummmmm!Well nice to ask us about this heart-touching topic and definitely it may helps to most of us to memorize about that time which we have had and now may be thrown away in past with the passage of time.Anyways in my suggestion best proposal would be in the traditional way like seen in the movies that man bend himself on his knees and raise his hand toward the lady to get his agreement about her coming life to be set with him with sincerely and honestly. Tue 24 May 2011 10:12:16 GMT+1 Ye Shiwei I don't think there is no contradiction in daily life for couples.Therefore,it's a significant aspect to be generous as much as possible. Tue 24 May 2011 07:49:06 GMT+1 Fazeela My ideal marriage proposal would be very special for me. That is what I feel. My partner will get me on a candle light dinner, where we both will be alone. He'll come closer to me, give me diamond ring and say "Will you marry me". I think that is very common in most of the movies but it is the dream of thousands of girls like me. So let's see! may be my partner is more romantic than me or would do something different to make the moments more special for the rest of our lives. Tue 24 May 2011 06:04:32 GMT+1 Simonchen In my opinion "women talk". So sometimes romantic marriage proposal is need. You need special location, with music,flowers,beautiful words,engagement ring,get down on one knee and ask her to marry you.But confidence is more important.Don't forget it.^_^ Tue 24 May 2011 05:04:55 GMT+1 mimijune I've been in love with my man for not too long, but i know since the frist days we were together that i will marry him and so does he. No matter how he proposes me but i will accept it for sure a thousand times !!! Mon 23 May 2011 16:22:36 GMT+1 hoangphuong0806 Last sunday, I had two wedding. One was my best friends and other was my colleage. They were so beautiful, romantic and exciting. In that moment, I wish my wedding would be like them. My ideal marrige proposal would be something that my boyfriend make me surprised and touching. I hope it would be one of my happiest memories I ever have. Mon 23 May 2011 16:02:16 GMT+1 Lorenzo I think this question is something personal. All of the marrige proposal are beautiful. I'e like the exciting ones, all that could be sensitive and you can told to your brothers or friends like something special for you and your partner. In my opinion the special events needs be done with special things or actions. Mon 23 May 2011 15:56:06 GMT+1 crystal My ideal marriage proposal would be traditional and romantic. To be honest, I proposed to my husband " I would like to live with you forever" and he replied '' If you want''. At that time I was satisfied with something like that. But now I would always dream of romantic proposal from a man who present me a glossy diamond ring as a symbol of proposal. It is good to be natual and simple proposal but if someone is a woman who dream princess, she would want a romantic proposal. Mon 23 May 2011 15:01:09 GMT+1 stevenchou Hi Chunhua LiI am totally agaree what you said, the style of proposal is not the most importatn, the main point is who you marry?? if you need to marry a man you do not love him. i think even there are a huge diamond or 100 rose, it is no use !!!!Thanks for you sharing ... it inspires me a lot !!!! Mon 23 May 2011 09:49:14 GMT+1 stevenchou For my way, i think i would like a marriage simplely. Don't need a grand place or any planning, just do myself and fall in love with my partner . it's enough !!!!! Mon 23 May 2011 09:34:00 GMT+1 Chunhua Li Maybe a lot of girls want a traditional proposal , but in fact many people would have a normal one. For me, because my husband and I had not enough money to buy a diamond ring before marriage, and my husband is a indrawn man , so I had not a ring and red roses at all. After one year of our marriage my husband bought a diamond ring for me with his one month' salary which we were on business in Shanghai. So I believe that maybe the most important thing is not the style of the proposal but the person who you would marry with is the real one you love, I know that some time people who you love indeed may not become the marriage partner at last.For the Valentine's day in every year, it is a heart-struck time for me, for about 8 years ago, I had a boyfriend and I loved him so much, and in the Valentine's day in 2003 he sent me a big bundle roses but after six months he left me. Even now I am afraid of seeing red roses although I have a family with a five months old boy and my husband is good to me , but I know the Valentine's day dose not belong to me forever. I can not tell anybody around in my real life even to my husband, and it is the first time that I can say this and face the truth directly, so thank the opportunity offering by BBC that I can say this to myself and other people. Mon 23 May 2011 01:50:48 GMT+1 amimz5 My idea marriage proposal must be unique and spontaneous. she must remember it all her life. Sun 22 May 2011 20:49:41 GMT+1 Tohyd To tell the truth,I always wanted to find a love in a very romantic way and I did it.You know in some countries or traditions there is some one who called Matchmaker, so I think this is really meaningless, love is more than this, it has to be compeletly pure. Both sides of a relationship ought to feel theflame of love.To swim in the ocean of love you have to be in love to be ready to tackle the problems of matrimony.In other words, it is a kind of mutual relationship that needs being patience and love.The first step to be a part of it is proposal which is the most exciting and colorful part before the wedding party,consequently,it should be done FANTULOUSLY ,on the boat ,in the middle of class.,but I DID IT ON TH PHONE...:) Sun 22 May 2011 17:37:34 GMT+1 rouaa I think the most thing in this subject that the correct choose {Who lasts to get married me }.....he must love me so much,care about every thing in my life and protect me Sun 22 May 2011 16:48:40 GMT+1 ghazal My ideal marriage proposal would be very romantic.Wether in the full moon or in the bright sunlight. I think most important thing the person you like most and when He will be infront of you every place become romantic automatically .Important thing is that He will propose me I will forget all other thing in the world. Sun 22 May 2011 14:59:21 GMT+1 davdavdare In my opinion, as a proposal is something that a couple never ever forget, even when they'll be fairly elderly, I think any proposal should be prepared carefully to turn into a unforgettable and magic moment. Anyway, it depends on the kind of person. On the one hand, it could be doing some sightseeing in the seven wonders of the world, on other hand, the proposal could happen during a romantic dinner. Sun 22 May 2011 11:40:14 GMT+1 yuice For me, romantic marriage proposal is not really important. What most important is the confidence level of the man during the proposal . It might turn to something silly if the man not make well preparation on it. Sun 22 May 2011 06:45:09 GMT+1 Svetlana Frankly speaking, i will not be honest to say i've never imagined this moment, the moment of a proposal... And the only thing i DO know that i don't really care about the place but it should be unexpectedly and the main point is with a desirable man whom i am ready to share my future life with! And as for me, i like this traditional way when a man stands on one knee and asks for getting married with a ring in his hand and i think its romantic as well! But i am sure the main thing is not the place or the moment or atmosphere but the right person making a proposal !:) Sun 22 May 2011 06:36:02 GMT+1 chiholee I have been dreaming of confessing my love to one that I really love. Thing is I haven't met her yet. If I find her I would propose while we are going on travelling around the europe and I will kneel on the ground to give her ring as a promise that we will be together for long long time and the moment should happen at most happiest time so that it remind us of greatest moment. Sun 22 May 2011 05:00:34 GMT+1 Tereza I like surprise, therefore my ideal proposal would be in a kind of situation when I wouldn't expect it. It can be everywhere. Sat 21 May 2011 19:49:28 GMT+1 Arancina I'm a rather romantic and traditional woman. Then my ideal marriage proposal would be in a special location as a marvellous sea/mountain landscape or, why not, the wonderful city of Venice, given the fact I live very nearby. Of course I'd like to receive my proposal in the classical way, with the man down on one knee, looking up to my eyes. That would make me go mad!!! But the most important thing, even though I've already expressed my desires, would be the surprise effect. I shouldn't be aware of the exact moment and place which my proposal would come in. That would make all even more unforgettable! Sat 21 May 2011 11:31:11 GMT+1 castleontheriver Like ideal marriage proposal would be enough a simple words, but, said of heart… Sat 21 May 2011 04:54:54 GMT+1 Naheed I would like it to be simple but romantic. Sat 21 May 2011 03:32:13 GMT+1 Yusheng Yeah, simple, plain, and natural would be my ideal proposal.When two have got together for sometme, the big moment would just come naturally. All I need is confidence and sincerity. Sat 21 May 2011 02:34:04 GMT+1 Taro1979 Although I'm not sure what is the ideal marriage proposal for women because I am a man, I think romantic mood is needed for men too. At this point I failed my proposal. I proposed to my wife at just in front of her house. Nothing special, nothing romantic, it's just simple. She accept my proposal and we got married, and we are happy now. But sometimes she says "I wanted you to propose at more romantic place and situation". Fri 20 May 2011 20:55:04 GMT+1 Buby26 I would like my proposal to be unique.. I want him to propose at a time I least expect knocking me out completely.. Its not important where he does it but what's important to me is what he would say which would make the moment a precious memory forever. Fri 20 May 2011 19:53:30 GMT+1 anna_nguyen a proposal in a romantic place, simple and nature! we will stand sides by sides, look straight into my eyes and kiss me tenderly after a say " i do". :) Fri 20 May 2011 17:11:42 GMT+1 shahed i think proposal is not important.confidence and power of talking is more important than any beautiful have to be powerful and funny without nervousness. Fri 20 May 2011 10:39:48 GMT+1 Thanh Phương My ideal proposal would be some thing really romantic but natural. He does not have to be on his knee or propose me with flowery words. May be all the thing I need is his true feeling about me, he tells me some thing like you are so beautiful to me ... and then he holds my hand, look into my eyes and say it honestly " Will you marriage me?". All these simplest thing will knock me down, then I will say " I do" happily. ^_^ happily ever after!!! Fri 20 May 2011 10:31:10 GMT+1 Luwia I strongly beieve that love doesn't have any limits or rules. Each of us has its own story and ideals. As for me an ideal proposal would be romantic and only romantic. Something not usual, not boring, and different from others. Something that will be special and unforgetable for sweethearts. And later you can tell your children, grandchildren with proudness about it. Because such a day can't be washed away from heart and soul. To my mind an ideal proposal depends on future groom's ideas and his surprises. That's the part where a girl can rest and feel deep, profound, sincere and true love. I guess the best proposal is meeting sunrise together at the seaside. As for me nothing can be compared with it. Because the sunrise symbolizes the start of a new day, a new page of our life. Fri 20 May 2011 10:16:30 GMT+1 EDGAROM In my opinion before the marriage the couple should be such rely and like to each other that without any doubt they both will wait for proposal. I know many cases when not only the man begin the proposal, but also the woman did some marks understanding that it is time to proposal. Thank you for offering such beautiful and nice topic. Fri 20 May 2011 05:01:00 GMT+1 Randa90 Although I am a practical girl, I would like my ideal marriage proposal to be a little bit romantic, for it is the only proposal I will have in all my life. Therefore, I want this moment to be a unique one in my memory. In fact, the romance is like the spices which add taste and deliciousness to the food. And so I think my marriage proposal would be tasteless without this beautiful touch of romance. Fri 20 May 2011 03:37:46 GMT+1 francisca My ideal proposal would be in the form of a song. With music, which has magic power, the proposal will be more natural and romantic. It doesn't matter where as long as he says it with a song. Fri 20 May 2011 02:04:29 GMT+1 Mahnaz What would be better than a red rose with an expensive beautiful ring?! Thu 19 May 2011 21:55:23 GMT+1 Juan I ´d like to made marriage proposal next to sea under a beutiful starry night. I thing this act is something simple but great and romantic. Thu 19 May 2011 18:45:18 GMT+1 Ethellara My ideal marriage proposal would be that one coming from my best friend walking together under the rain going back home without any kind of rush and no umbrella to protect us and just listening to his voice talking to me.
