If she likes: Things that don't suck.
Pros: You get away from your routine. You suddenly open up a million possibilities of outside-the-box activities: horseback riding, scuba diving, whatever. You can throw in a nice hotel. And most importantly, you get some much-needed smokescreen. She won't necessarily realize that your romantic activities are prelude to a marriage proposal, she'll just think they're part of the vacation.
Cons: It ain't cheap. And if she says no? That's one long, loooong-ass plane ride home.
The brief proposal is only one of the ways we discover pioneering ideas to fund. We have staff devoted to learning about emerging ideas and trends that may offer great potential to help build a Culture of Health. These staff members seek and develop ideas for funding in a variety of ways, including but not limited to review of submitted Pioneering Idea Brief Proposal. We engage with people and places on social media, at conferences and through our networks to look far and wide for collaborators. Our brief proposal process is an important element in this process that allows anyone to share pioneering ideas directly with RWJF.
Take your girlfriend to her favorite restaurant for dinner. Just before ordering dessert, excuse yourself and tell her that you need to use the restroom. Be very careful and sneaky as you approach a waiter or waitress instead and order your girlfriend’s favorite dessert. Have them place the ring on the dessert and prepare to pop the question when the dessert arrives at the table. Make sure that they bring the dessert once you return back at the table. Not only will she be speechless, she will be so pleasantly surprised at the thought that went into planning the perfect moment.
