WATCH: Guy Intentionally Ties Knot In Fishing Line So He Can Pop The Question

Well played, bud, well played.

The engagement process puts dudes’ brains into a pretzel. Do you go big? The worry there is too big ends up being corny. Do you do something intimate? Are you trying to avoid a bunch of people around?

The list goes on. One of the best, and safest bets, is to do it outside with Mother Nature. Not to brag, but I popped the question in Tuscany over a sunset and 3 bottles of wine. It worked like a charm, and then we drank ourselves blind. I also ended up buying a pack of Marlboro Reds from an Italian man for some reason and the nicotine made my legs stop working. It was a romantic night to say the least.

This cat also did it right.
