Happily-in-love couples would agree that they do not really need one day to celebrate the love and commitment they harbour for each other. Yet, Propose Day, the second day in Valentine’s Week gives people in love an opportunity to make their special ones feel loved and cared. Are you among those who have been contemplating popping the question to your boyfriend or girlfriend for a while? Are you ready but confused how to ask the question? Well, fret not, because here are five epic videos of quirky and adorable proposals that will cast all your doubts away.

The one with the 365-Day proposal

What could be called some serious perseverance, Dean proposed to his girlfriend Jennifer every day for a whole year, without her knowing that’s 365 times. That is up until she finally does, and her reaction is priceless. Watch the proposal here.

The one in which the guy falls off the building 

Although this proposal could have gone horribly wrong, it really didn’t and resulted in something rather wonderful. Thanks to the careful planning by John and his friends, Brooke, John’s girlfriend did not have the slightest idea as to what the biggest fright of her life would lead to. When John lost his balance while trying to catch the proposal ring his friend tossed in his direction, Brooke rushes to the edge of the terrace. There she finds him, bouncing on a trampoline, very much alive, and popping the question. Watch the crazy proposal here.

The one with the White House proposal 

US Marine Corps captain Matthew Phelps proposed marriage to his boyfriend at the White House and became the first gay man to do so. And if you are wondering why the White House, then that’s where Phelps met Ben Schock for the first time — at the LGBT Pride Month Reception. According to the Huffington Post, “When we received an invitation from the Military Partners and Families Coalition to attend the White House holiday tour, the coincidence that it would be the six-month anniversary of our first date — and also to the White House — was too big not to capitalise on.”
