Valentine’s Day is a week away, and we bet a lot of gals, and some guys may be expecting it to include a proposal from their significant other. But if you’re going to pop the question, you are going to want to do it in the best way possible, and now according to SWNS Digital, a new poll reveals the best and worst ways to do so.

A new poll finds:

  • 50% of people say the best time to propose is during a romantic dinner.
  • Other optimal proposal times include:
    • During a holiday (47%)
    • On vacation (46%)
    • During a concert (36%)
    • At a wedding (36%)
  • But folks also have strong opinions about the wrong way/time to pop the question, with a proposal via text being the worst (41%), followed by:
    • Phone call (39%)
    • At a fast food restaurant (28%)
    • At their parents’ house (24%)
    • During a sporting event (23%)
  • Overall, 28% of people admit they love cheesy, over-the-top proposals.
  • 31% would prefer something private and intimate, although secretly 67% say they do love an over-the-top proposal.
  • Meanwhile, 58% of people say they regret how their proposal happened.
  • Another 45% wish they could do it over.
  • 31% have lied to make their proposal seem more impressive than it was.
  • 23% lied to make their proposal seem more low-key than it was.
  • ONE MORE THING! Since a lot of proposals happen around food, the poll asked folks what were the best foods to hide a ring in, with pizza being the top choice (34%), followed by salad (29%), burger/sandwich (28%) and soup (28%).
