Here's a wedding proposal idea that gives back to the community. If your girlfriend is the type whose heart goes out to less fortunate children, we suggest a really novel way of proposing.

World Vision International helps children all over the world by providing food, shelter, and education. In the Philippines, for instance, a donation of P450 a month – P5400 a year – can send a child to school and help change her/his life. Other similar organizations, like Children's Hour also work to provide children with a better life through small- to medium-size donations and charity work.

We suggest "adopting a child" in the name of your girlfriend! The websites of either World Vision and Children's Hour can run you through the steps, including the sending of information about and pictures of your "child" in impoverished nations throughout the world.

Then, when the picture is ready and the time is right, invite your girlfriend out to dinner and show her the compilation of information you've made in her name. You can then make a short speech of how much love she's brought the world and how much love the two of you can provide your own children when you have them.

With that, bring out your ring, tell her how her love has changed the way you view the world, how the two of you can work together to do great things, and then pop the question. Let us know how it goes!

Many gentlemen like the idea of putting their engagement rings in the drinks of their fiancees-to-be. While romantic and sweet, there is room for error. Here are some tips to help men who are thinking of proposing using drinks.

1.Always select a drink of light color. You'd be surprised how many men think of putting their engagement rings in the wine glass, only to discover to their horror that the ring cannot be seen in a glass of red wine. When in doubt, go with classic white champagne or a fruitier white wine.

2.Flute glasses are much better than wine goblets or tumblers. No reason, other than it just looks better.

3.Don't use soda like Sprite or Mountain Dew, or shandy (like Cali), you cheapskate. Among other things, it creates bubbles that stick to the ring. Distracting and, well, gross.

4.Keep an eye on your girlfriend. If she's the type that tends to gulp down her drinks, she might actually swallow the ring. Hey, it's happened (not to our clients, though, eherm).

5.Have a long teaspoon and napkin on hand. If your girlfriend sees the ring, she may be a little too excited to drink the champagne, so have a long teaspoon on hand to fish out the ring and a napkin to dry the ring before putting it on her finger.
