Let’s admit it, the concept of proposing your girlfriend for marriage becomes quite redundant here in India. More so if you met her on shaadi.com. The idea of marriage doesn’t come as a surprise to us. We are a country obsessed with marriage, and hey, no one’s judging. Standup comic Angad Singh Ranyal hilariously nails the absurdity of it all.

Getting a girlfriend is the hardest part of dating, or so we thought. The struggle doesn’t end there. If, by luck, you do end up as a long-term couple looking to get married, there’s a whole range of rites of passage you’d need to walk through. Proposing to her is an important one, thanks to our Western counterparts who genuinely surprise each other by thinking marriage. Here, it’s all we think of.
And mind you, the proposal has to be creative enough to be told as a romantic story for years afterwards. It will be narrated at your wedding, at your reception, at your first dinner as a couple with relatives, at get-togethers with other married friends. The struggle is real, guys.
Let us tell you, slipping the ring in her wine or cake is passé. If you make the mistake of proposing to her like this and still get a yes, she must really love you. Last we heard some dude proposed to his girlfriend while skydiving. Good luck matching that level. Dating is hard.
Help your brothers a little and tell us of the most creative proposal you can think of.
