Is Beyonce’s “Single Ladies” currently your girlfriend's "jam"? Has she put it on loop, especially when you're earshot of her music player? Acting surprised won't do you any good: It's June, brother—the most popular month for getting doomed, err, getting married!
Our advice? Do not let such temporal romantic notions sway your decision in matters concerning The Great Bending Of The Knee. Instead, make sure that you’re really ready to bid adieu to your bachelor ways (consult this little guide by Master Suplado Stanley Chi) and, better yet, answer this question first: Do the phrases "ball and chain," “quiet life,” “family man,” and “an army of mini yous” excite you?
If yes, then by all means bring out that expensive rock you secretly purchased months ago and get those knees dirty. Whatever romantic scenario you decide to do though, avoid repeating these embarrassing proposal and wedding mishaps we've collected from YouTube! Learn from it below!

The idea is to make her worry her brains out so she won't say no when you finally pop the question. If you're up for something wilder that falling into things, here's a guiding principle: Don't do something that could induce a heart attack (read: keep her alive)!
