I heard a story of a man popping the question to his girlfriend at a crowded McDonalds. It worked for him, but is it a great idea for everybody else?


I heard an interesting story the other day. Over lunch my friend told me the story about how her brother proposed to his girlfriend. The guy got down on his knee in front of a crowded restaurant and asked her for her hand. She cried,A Proposal At McDonalds: Crazy or Brilliant? Articles dabbed her eyes and said “Oh course”. They embraced and the whole restaurant broke out into applause.

Sounds beautiful right? Well the way she told it is was. Of course, what she didn’t tell me until the end of this story was that the crowded restaurant was none other than a McDonalds.

Now, if you ask me where you could get custom engagement rings orange county I could probably give you a few good answers. Where should you propose? I’ll give you a couple of pretty solid pieces of advice. But popping the question at McDonalds? Well, you better know what you’re doing.

The reason why this particular proposal worked is that the couple had a history at McDonalds. These kind of wacky proposals only seem to work if there is a history there and the girl finds it cute. This couple actually had their first date at a McDonalds and her favorite treat is a McDonald’s sundae. So for this couple it worked, but if you’re going to do it you better know what you’re doing or it would be a disaster.

I’ve head friends of mine pop the question at Disneyland. Disneyland is always a fairly safe bet (as long as she loves the place) because it is a place of magic and wonder. Plus, if you let Disney know beforehand they will help you out with special arrangements and assistance on the special moment.

Theme parks can always been kinda tricky because of the logistics of having a romantic moment in a place that sees tens of thousands a people per day. Expect big crowds wherever you go in the park so make sure to have a plan before hand… then have a backup plan because you don’t want to be left in a lurch when your favorite ride is closed down on that day. If your women is into romance then pop the question during dinner at one of the theme parks classier restaurants. Trust me, women want romance. If she says she doesn’t then she is lying. Also, make sure you do it at a time when it will still be a surprise. If you’re terrible at keeping a secret then don’t wait till the end of the day to pop the question. That would lead to a very long and stressful day for the both of you.
