Nowadays, with the readily available technology and the ongoing mobility of people worldwide, there seems to be an increasing number of long-distance relationships. In fact, it seems more and more common to have a partner that is from a different culture than yours and maybe even speaks a different mother tongue than you do. But that doesn’t stop people from loving each other and deciding to get married despite the distance.

Proposing while living in different cities: where do you buy the engagement ring?

You and your loved one live in different cities or even in different countries. Not an easy situation, but your lives currently do not allow you to live closer. Nevertheless, you know it is serious and you are thinking about the next steps. Whether you have discussed getting married with your partner or not, there is always the question of the proposal and where to buy the engagement ring.

One option is for example to buy the engagement ring online, have it wrapped with a special message and ask for it to be delivered as a complete surprise at the doorstep of the bride-to-be. The surprise could be accompanied by balloons or some form of decorations to make it even more memorable. It may not seem as personal, but in today’s age, it is an original proposal.

Another option is to buy the engagement ring online, but have it delivered to your house. Then organise a unique online proposal, where you prepare a nice set-up and ask your partner to marry you through the camera, with the engagement ring and all. Obviously, your partner will want to see the ring as soon as possible, so it would be ideal to combine the online proposal with, for example, a surprise visit the following day to prolong the romance.

2 tips to being happy when having a long-distance engagement

Living apart is never easy, let alone once you are engaged, so here are two tips that will help you in your day to day lives.

Firstly: communication. It is crucial to have proper conversations on the phone or even through a webcam on a regular basis. This always makes the distance more bearable.

Secondly: spontaneity and romance. These two elements are essential, even when you are living far away. Allow yourself to be creative as any small gesture can have an enormous impact on your relationship and remind your loved one that you are thinking about them.
