Proposal location does not matter. Most important is the ring.

And actually plan something to say when you're on your knee. I made the mistake of just expressing my love quickly and asking. Ended up okay but could've been more meaningful

The speech is the most important part, and it's intimate- don't have everyone watching. My fiancé proposed in our apartment and it was perfect. Ask one of her friends for help on the ring if you haven't already- once you get to a certain point every woman has expressed her preferences.

Pro tip: have one of her friends take her for a mani first (if she likes them)- most women I know would prefer to have their hands photographed with finished nails.

It's the little details that show you care that make it special. Good luck!

VP1 is correct, women can have very personal preferences when it comes to these things. Personally I'd loathe to be anywhere with anyone watching because I'd want to feel that the decision is mine alone with no pressure and that I'm free to respond excitedly without drawing attention from others (so e.g not in a restaurant). If she's very extroverted, she may not be like me. On the other hand, most women I know would be happy with a location with some variety of sentimental significance to the relationship.
The size/value of the ring is unlikely to make a difference unless she is particularly into status symbols or has extremely expensive taste specifically because it's expensive (rather than say, she likes a particular brand of $900 suits only because they are the best fit on her). I'd rather have a $500 emerald & tinydiamond ring and a variety of other presents than a $5000 diamond, mostly because I find 'large fancy diamonds' cliche and thoughtless. most people I know agree but not all women are the same. I suggest you solicit the help of someone you know who knows her well (but not her best friend as they are liable to let cat out of bag) to bait her into talking about the kind of ring she'd personally like.

Good luck! Tell us how it goes!

like

Awww!! If she's really close to her mom and/or dad, the family thing would be a good idea. Otherwise, a proposal with only u there works perfectly fine! As for the ring, get what you can afford. If she loves you, she'll be thrilled that you're proposing!

Matters less what we think and more what your woman prefers ( I assume you are asking for your SO). 2 key rules: Rule 1: get down on one knee. Rule 2: don't rise until she motions/tells you. The rest is icing on the cake. Good luck!

Currently have a post-PhD offer from Bain and from a biotech startup in BD with a slight pay cut. Want to eventually climb the ladder in pharma, but have heard Bain has poor biopharma exposure. Would it be better to get the general Bain stamp then transition to life sciences, or would it be better for my career to start in biotech even with slightly lower pay?

I keep getting rejected branding agencies for roles despite having freelanced at some amazing places and done positioning work there or at ad agencies. My sense is that they only want people who have worked at Interbrand, Superunion, Futurebrand, etc & aren’t open up outsiders. Is that right? Am I doing something wrong? Should I even be chasing these agencies? I feel like it’s a constant uphill battle and I’m losing the strength to keep going.

I just received my merit review which I excelled at and they gave me a 7% increase instead of 3 to bump me up to “market rate”, since I’m in tech in nyc. But even at 7% I’m still underpaid and I know because I’ve interviewed with other companies in nyc for my role and they’re offering 75-80k while I’m now getting 64. Also read comments on here. I want to speak with my manager about bumping me up more at least to 70, but Idk if that’s a good idea and not sure how to have that convo. Any advice?
