How did you propose, were proposed to?
 
Just reading another thread about a guy that went to a whole heap of trouble to propose. He tricked his girlfriend into going to an art show where one of the pieces spelled out. . . . will you marry me?
Do many people really go to that much trouble???

I'll share my story first.

Get out the tissues folks


One night we rang for fish & chips. While I was putting my shoes on to collect them my soon to be fiance shoved a box under my nose and said, "so. . . . . here you go. . . . . . . . . should I get on one knee? Do you want to get married?"
We'd already picked out a ring a couple of weeks earlier so I knew it was coming but .:rolleyes:

Such a romantic story:heart:


Your turn. . . . . . .

Not me personally (man I can't wait for that day (need a happy sigh, got one Lila? :wink: )) but my cousin took his fiancee down to our beach near the holiday house. The sunset was coming down, and this beach is beautiful but always deserted because only locals know about it. and they went for a walk. He proposed there and then.

Brian was living in Arkansas for a few months at his mom's so we met in St. Louis since it was 1/2 for both of us, me from Chicago, him from Arkansas. He had sort of been mentioning diamonds and rings and stuff for a while and then 2 weeks before our trip he dropped everything. So I sort of had an idea that something as up.
Anyway, I got to the Arch late on Friday. They closed by 6 and I got there by 5:45, our meeting place. He was all dressed up and looked totally put out, had no idea where I was (he didn't have a cell with him at the time). I got there and he was like....well let's get to the hotel and go to dinner.
Later that night I went to sit on the couch in our room and he started freaking out, he had his pants folded on the couch. I couldnt figure out why.
The next day it was overcast when we went up in the Arch, so by dinner time he really had me wondering because he was acting so strange.

He insisted we go to this nice French resturant and that we go shopping...as I didn't bring anything fancy enough. By the time we had dinner he started trying to propose....lol but he forgot the ring at the hotel. :laugh: :banghead: :banghead:

So by 1 a.m. when we got back to our hotel, it had been raining and I was tired....and tipsy...to much wine and champaigne. He insisted we go back to the arch. Well it was cold and drizzling so I was thinking...he's just going to sa forget it and try again at Thanksgiving or Christmas.
But he surprised me. He got me right under the Arch, diverted my attention, so when I turned bakc to look at him he was down on one knee....in a puddle, holding the ring and told me he loved me more than anything and wanted to know if I'd be his wife.


:cute: :giggle:

That is SO romantic! I love it. It's got everything: romance, a story arc, drama and best of all, a declaration of love!

You are a very lucky woman. :yes:

I came home from work one day in a really bad mood and my back was hurting due to my pregnancy. I was sitting on the chair looking really miserable when my fiance kneeled down right next to me and said "I know what will cheer you up" and asked me to marry him. Of course I said yes and I wasn't miserable anymore. :lol: He said he wanted to do it another day but he couldn't wait any longer. :)

This is very romantic....:huh:

After dating 8 years, because we were so young (dated at 16/17) it was the next step to take. We were always together anyway, so we went and picked out a ring he asked, I said yes, and here we'll be 17 years later.

My youngest sister's guy proposed to her after a carriage ride in NYC. They had gone there to celebrate their anniversary one year. She suspected what was coming though since they had picked out the ring together.

Me personally whenever my guy is ready then Im ready :wink:

Sounds very pragmatic.

Rick and I had been living together for 7 years when I started having some serious heart problems. I was 28 at the time and my cardiologist said I might not see 40 if I didn't fix the defect so I was immediately scheduled for open heart surgery. I had about a week to prepare and one day I was standing by the xerox machine in our home office and he said something like "if you don't die, I'll marry you." :angry:

I obviously didn't die and he married me 8 months later! :wink: :lol:

my oldest sister runs triathalons... her fiance was waiting at the end of one with a ring

snowbunny00774 08-23-2007 03:58 PM

I was standing around, and he was walking towards me from the other side of the bar. He pointed towards the door and that was it for me. :swoon:



eta: OH...you meant marriage. my bad.

Mine was outside the tax office late one night. :cute: We'd gone to see a movie, had a leisurely walk back to the train station (back in those days when we didn't need a car to live), and he stopped me to ask. That's about it.

:D

blueeyedgirl 08-23-2007 08:26 PM

Tax office :cute:

So, I note that all these stories are the bloke asking the chick. So in these enlightened times, any girls here ask their bloke???? Come on, someone must have!!!!

Angela Harlem 08-23-2007 08:43 PM
