National Proposal Day is March 20. Who did the proposing in your relationship and how did he or she do it?

According to surveys conducted on National Today online, 88 percent of women say they would be open to the idea of proposing, instead of waiting for a man to propose to them and only 19 percent consider it necessary for the man to get down on one knee when proposing.

With all of that in mind, where are the most popular places to propose? National Today asked married couples how they proposed or were proposed to and here are the top five answers:

  1. In front of friends and family
  2. At the place where we had our first date
  3. During a romantic getaway, just the two of us
  4. In bed
  5. Over an elegant dinner

Yet here are the top five answers they heard back of how people wanted the proposal to go down:

  1. At the place where we had our first date
  2. During a romantic getaway, just the two of us
  3. On the beach, near the ocean
  4. Over an elegant dinner
  5. In front of friends and family

This may not seem romantic to you but I loved it, my husband asked me to marry him in a text message. It was perfect for us because we were big texters. He later proposed in person too so I actually got two proposals.

How did the proposal happen in your relationship?
