The old fashioned way is to get down on one knee, but the ever-increasing pervasiveness of the internet has meant internet memes are now being used by the romantically inclined.
A video that is beginning to go viral features a chap called Tim who decides to propose to his girlfriend Audrey via a series of famous, or infamous, internet memes, including cats.
