If you are planning on proposing to your significant other in the near future, chances are you’re running through all kinds of ideas. Of course, there are certain aspects of the average proposal that are always the same. You’ll need to figure out a romantic way to “pop the question,” and you’ll have to take some time to look through selections of engagement and wedding rings from 77 diamonds or other stores to make sure you pick out a great ring. However, getting past these basics, you’ll also have to figure out where you’ll be when you propose, and what exactly the proposal will involve. It’s always nice to make this a particularly memorable moment, so here are five very unique and exciting proposal ideas that might help get you thinking on the right lines.
1) Skydiving Proposal – If you and your significant other enjoy your thrills, then this might be a tough idea to beat. Go skydiving together, and either propose in the plane just before the jump or, if you think you can manage it, propose on the way down! Of course, you’ll have to wait until you land to actually give her the ring, but this can be a very thrilling proposal.

2) Performance Proposal – This one can cost you, but if you have a connection or are willing to spend some money it can be spectacular. Hire a band, a singer, or even a theater group to help you with popping the question in whatever way you design. This is definitely a bit over-the-top, but in the right situation it can be perfect.

4) Public Signs Proposal – Everybody knows the popular proposal on the scoreboard idea. However, this has become a bit common and stale, and unless you’re both major fans of a certain team it may not be a very personal idea. Instead, see if you can rent out ad space or post on a public sign where she’ll be sure to see it. This can be shocking, and shows a great deal of effort on your part.

5) Scuba Proposal – Much like the skydiving idea, this will only work with some couples, and you’ll definitely have to be very careful not to lose the ring. However, presenting a ring underwater can be both fun and romantic for the right couple. You could even set things up to stage finding the ring underwater, provided that you are diving in a relatively shallow location.
