National Proposal Day is March 20. So, if you’ve been mulling over a special someone, maybe it’s time to take the plunge. If you need a little inspiration, here are a few statistics gathered by David’s Bridal about engagements.

1. Teleprompter-Assisted Proposal

Watch anchor Jillian Pavlica read the beginning of her own proposal off the teleprompter in this clip. Asked about their engagement experience, 57 percent of respondents in the David’s Bridal survey said they knew it was coming, while 43 percent said they were surprised.

2. Technologically-Advanced Proposal

In which a man uses his girlfriend’s favorite iPad game to help pop the question. No, it’s not Flappy Bird.

3. Kitten-Assisted Proposal

14 percent of women surveyed would have preferred that different people were present for their proposal – whether this stat would be affected if those people were adorable kittens (as in the above clip), was not addressed.

4. Best Airport Greeting Ever Proposal

20 percent of respondents also wished their proposal speech was different. We doubt the woman in the clip above was one of them.

5. Ellen Degeneres-Assisted Proposal

Not all of us are lucky enough to have an Ellen DeGeneres-feted proposal.

6. Urban Art Proposal

This proposal apparently required the use of a lookout – now that’s what we call dedication.

7. It’s May Be a Small World, But It’s a Big Proposal

22 percent of women would change the location of their proposal. Disneyland’s Main Street seems pretty good to us, though.

8. Seriously Raising the Bar Proposal

We have a hard time wrangling six friends for brunch, and this man pulled together a small army in the middle of Manhattan.

9. Casting Home Depot in a Whole New Light Proposal

You may also remember this video from its role in the Kids React to Gay Marriage video.

1o. Live Lip-Dub Proposal

This video purports to be “the world’s first live lip-dub proposal.” Two more like it, and it’ll officially be a trend!

11. Building-Assisted Proposal

It’s kind of like when the Statue of Liberty comes to life at the end of Ghostbusters 2, only a whole lot sweeter.
