5 Reasons why you should Propose on Valentine’s Day

Updated: Feb 9, 2023

There is no doubt that February 14th is a magical and romantic day for every couple.

Lovers dedicate to candlelight dinners and romantic trips. The sweet boyfriends give their sweethearts flowers, chocolates and some beautiful jewellery to seal their devotion.

Therefore could be considered the best time to propose to your loved one?

In a survey of more than 2,000 people in the UK, one-fifth (21 per cent) of married respondents said they got engaged on Valentine’s Day.

With Valentines Day quickly creeping around the corner, we’ve created the dos and don’ts of proposing on the most romantic day of the year.

1) Don’t rush into it. Just because Valentines' Day is quickly approaching, it doesn’t mean you should feel pressured into making this big step in your relationship. Don’t pop the question unless you are certain the time is right for both of you.

2) Don’t forget to document your proposal. The day you pop the question is likely to be one of the most memorable events for you and your partner. Make sure you have a camera on you so you can remember this special moment for the rest of your life.

3) Do make the engagement a surprise. Your future fiancé may be expecting a proposal on this special occasion so it is crucial you don’t let anything slip. Try not to tell too many people about your engagement plan to ensure it remains a secret.

4) Don't get suckered into a Valentine's Day deal at a jewellery store if it isn't what your partner wants. And if you're the one being proposed to, be clear about what it is you're looking for — and don't forget to subtly (or not-so-subtly) share your ring size!

5) Do be unique and make it personal to both of you. Valentine's proposals are common; therefore you need to make yours stand out in order to be special for both of you. For example, you could take her to the place you had your first date.
