Proposing isn't easy. Those of you men who think that simply by going down on your knees, and getting a giant ring of sorts would get a "yes" couldn't be more wrong.
The New York Daily News has issued a list of five ultimately rejected proposal ideas for those who are 'seriously' looking forward to marital bliss with their special girl.
For starters, placing the ring in say your girlfriend's drink or her favourite doughnut will only break her tooth or pass through her gastrointestinal system.
Further, those planning to propose their girlfriends on the big screen at a game should hop to another plan, or they will end up ruining a very intimate moment by surrounding themselves with drunks.
Asking for her hand in marriage while playing in the ocean where the ring can't be found if dropped is also a really bad idea.
Faking a bar fight to impress your girlfriend and then proposing her when she comes to your aid is again a strict no as "initiating a sincere moment with an insincere set up seems counter-intuitive".
The final idea to be written off the list is to take her by surprise by dropping to a knee at a classy gentlemen's club -- it is much less impressive when the diamond is half the size of a stripper's belly button ring.
