80% of Women Proposed to on Valentine’s Day are Less than Impressed But an Award-Winning Book Offers Men Creative Ways for Popping the Question.


Fairfax, Virginia (22, January, 2008) – With literally thousands of couples getting engaged each and every Valentine’s Day, many people are surprised to learn nearly 80% of women who are proposed to on that most romantic of days are actually disappointed by the lack of creativity and ingenuity involved in the proposal. How could a day so steeped in romance end up being so ordinary and forgettable? That’s what Michael Webb, who has been deemed the “Master of Romance”, along with a variety of other interesting names including “The World’s Most Romantic Man,” wanted to desperately find out.

For years, Webb’s love and relationship advice has been featured on countless television and radio shows, in addition to several magazines and major newspapers throughout the United States. After realizing the severe lack of creative ideas for coming up with truly unique ways of popping the question, Webb utilized his media contacts and devised a contest in search of the absolute best marriage proposal stories. With over 7,300 responses flooding in from all over the world, Webb then hand-picked 101 of the very best examples that combined pure romance with creativity and compiled them into one award-winning book “The RoMANtic’s Guide to Popping the Question.”

Forget the usual dinner or brunch engagement that requires little planning or thought other than making the reservations, buying a few roses and choosing the date. “The RoMANtic’s Guide to Popping the Question” provides the tools necessary for any man to tap into his creative side to give his girlfriend a proposal on Valentine’s Day (or any other day) that will be remembered fondly, and talked about for many years to come.

While gifts such as flowers or jewelry are nice, as is arranging travel plans for a weekend getaway, these ideas on their own offer little creativity. Case in point, Jeff Wilson, a 29 year old architect from Seattle, Washington who thought he was doing everything right regarding his upcoming engagement. He arranged the romantic, and expensive, Valentine’s weekend, the breakfast in bed followed by a scrumptious lunch sitting near the pool where he then asked the big question. But, when all was said and done, what was so different or special about it?

In hindsight, Jeff says, “I knew I should have tried to think of something more unique, even though she did say yes, but it seems that all the good ideas have already been overdone.” Two years later when his younger brother Jack found himself in the same predicament, Jeff knew he had to help him out and found “The RoMANtic’s Guide to Popping the Question”. After reading through the incredible proposal ideas, Jack settled on one that he knew would make an impact, and with his own personal touch, would be more meaningful than he ever imagined. One of the best parts was he ended up needing a total of just $25 to prepare, excluding the ring of course!

With all of the details and thought that goes into planning a wedding, it only makes sense to put as much effort into dreaming up the right proposal. This book can make the difference between an event to remember, and just another ordinary day. For more information on “The RoMANtic’s Guide to Popping the Question”, visit
