You had a brilliant, perfect proposal idea, and someone else beat you to the punch. What do you do? You came up with the perfect way to propose, you got all the plans ready, feel confident, and then your girlfriend comes home from work saying her friend got proposed to in the same way you were going to propose. What’s next?
Never let her see you sweat! Stay calm, listen to the details of the other proposal, and take mental notes of what was different. There may be enough differences that you can proceed without making any changes. If that’s not possible, listen to the details anyway and pay attention to the things you can change to make it stand out.
Revise Your Plans!
If you still have time, then change your plans. If you can’t change some crucial part of it, like a location you’ve had reserved for months, then move forward, but change some of the smaller details. Make sure your proposal is unique, and includes things specific to your relationship. Include her favorite flowers, favorite colors, and photos of the two of you.
No matter what happens, relax. Your proposal will be perfect, because it is a special moment between the two of you. Have faith in her love for you, and her sense of humor about the mix up. She will remember that day for the rest of her life, so make sure she remembers you calm and happy, not upset because someone else had the same idea you did.
