Ahhhhhhh
Do it on Valentine's Day.
A friend on mine took his girlfriend to the water wall to propose.
I hope you get a lot of good suggestions from people on here! Good luck!

It is a little cold but the rose garden in Herman Park is beautiful. The gem room in the Natural science museum is also very pretty place and you could have a line ready like" you are more special than any of these gemstones" or something along those lines

If you want something truly unique or special, then you're going to have to come up with it yourself. Nobody knows your girlfriend and the relationship you have with her better than you. Ideas from other people are fine, but to avoid a cliche proposal you should have the occasion focus on special moments from your relationship.

Just throw it on the table and say:

"Here ya go. I'm not going to bother setting unrealistic expectations that I'll never live up to again."

Then, no matter what you do, every holiday after that will seem magical rather than a dissappointment compared to the proposal.

My hubby took me to a restaurant and had a Hot Air Balloon inflated in the field and we had a balloon ride (which was surprise enough!) but at the peak of the ride he proposed with the ring, then had champagne and cheese waiting on the ground back at the restaurant before dinner.

Do something unique to your relationship (ours was our love of Hot Air Balloons) and it will be something she will talk about forever. Obviously 11 years later I still gush over it :-)

Hmmm....interesting advice!!!

My proposal was amazing and romantic...while he may not be able to do that for me all the time...it meant alot that he went out of his way to make it special. I will never forget it and always treasure that night.

My Thoughts...

VDAY is a great day to propose...You can always dress up and go out to a nice dinner. If you went to a hotel you could do rose petals, champagne, and dessert...then propose...then enjoy the room.

Some may think that is cliche...but I am a sappy romantic. Think about what kind of romance your lady likes...you know her best.

Or...you could surprise her with a trip and propose on the trip...that could be really fun.

GOOD LUCK!!!!!

If you do plan something outside at night remember that February tends to be a chilly month.

mine was something like that. we're asians so its almost a given you only live-in with someone you'd like to be for a long time. no need for a damn proposal promising you wont have sex with someone outside your relationship (yeah, those girls out there were lining up for me)

I thought proposal/marriage precluded you from sex inside your relationship? That's why I always laugh at these young hollywood types getting promise/chastity rings... why not just get a wedding ring, it's the only surefire chastity ring. jk
