The Best TIME To Propose in Farmington, NM

The number one time to get engaged is still…


And for two very simple reasons:

First, because both men and women see it as romantic. It’s that “snuggle up by the fire” time of year. You also likely have time off from work to enjoy the moment around Christmas and the New Year.

And second, you’re typically around lots of friends and family. You can pop the question in front of the people who matter most to both of you, or at least immediately share the news in person with family and friends.

The other popular holiday to get engaged (for similar reasons) is the New Year. It's a romantic and happy occasion. It's a time of new beginnings.

And next on that list is, you guessed it, Valentine’s Day.

According to Facebook, 30% of proposals take place in November or December around the holidays. The most popular days to get engaged are December 24th, 25th, and 31st, and February 14th.
