7 Places a Man Should Never Propose to Me

I’ve never been the kind of woman who has fantasized about her wedding and engagement. There are just so many decisions to make when we are getting married, and I’m prone to changing my mind often. So, there isn’t a wedding box under my bed ala Jennifer Lopez’ character in The Wedding Planner. There is no secret proposal laid out in my journal. I just haven’t thought much about it.

But, maybe I should. They say that thoughts become things; that’s the Law of Attraction. I also believe in the power of manifestation. Maybe I should start with the things I don’t want because it’s so much easier to narrow it down that way. At least for me.

Here are seven places a man should never propose … to me! My opinions, as usual, are my own and full of humor and sarcasm. It’s my life, y’all!

  • Rooftop Love 2 of 8

    I have always been scared of heights. Ever since I can remember, I haven't been able to stand by a third-story window unless it's bolted. Imagine how freaked out I get on rooftops! If a man would propose to me in this manner, I'd be so scared that I wouldn't get anywhere near his candlelit dinner or his ring.

  • On a Bungee 3 of 8

    As I stated, I am terrified of heights. But you know what's even more terrifying? Jumping off things! I am much more afraid of falling than I am of heights. My fear of height actually stems from a fear of falling. Let's not get adventurous, future husband. Keep me on solid ground when you propose.

  • In the Ocean 4 of 8

    I love the ocean. I do, I do. But I am a terrible swimmer. If my man wants to snorkel, which I have done before, he'll have to stay by my side so I don't panic. A panicky Sujeiry in the ocean makes for a terrible proposal.

  • At a Restaurant 5 of 8

    Many proposals happen over dinner at a restaurant. A waiter walks in with dessert, and an engagement ring is hiding inside the chocolate mouse. It's very common, and I don't want a proposal that's common. I don't want to leap over a building, but I don't want to sit in a restaurant either.

  • At Home 6 of 8
    Living Room

    I do everything at home. I sleep, eat, bathe, and even work at home. So I don't want my proposal there. It's my sanctuary, yes, but it would be really difficult to surprise me!

  • Mom’s House 7 of 8

    I don't dislike my mom's place, but a proposal over at my mother's would be about, well, my mother. She would cry and holler and sob as if she were getting married. No can do!

  • The Park 8 of 8

    I love Central Park, but I am not a fan of the park in general. Blame the grass. I don't like the smell! I also don't like how it feels on my feet. Eek! So maybe he shouldn't propose in a park. I will feel like ants are crawling all over my feet. Eek!
