If you’ve been through a breakup of sorts, then I think a re-proposal is entirely appropriate!

My actual proposal was kinda crappy “We should get married”, and then we were moving country so there was no money for a ring for a while. So when the ring was eventually ready, I strongly suggested (he might say ‘demanded’) a more romantic ring-presentation/proposal. So he did!

Cooked me dinner, decorated with fairy lights. It was lovely.

So I say totally go for your re-proposal!

His initial proposal didn’t turn out the way he wanted it to, so it was all his idea.. and I’m not going to deny him that! 😉

Post pics of the new ring when you get it!

I think that re proposing is ALWAYS a good idea if that’s what he wants to do. Why not?! It’s not like holding a wedding every year and expecting everyone to attend. This is just between you and him, he could re-propose every year if he wanted to. It’s similar to those who privately say their vows to each other every year to reaffirm their love and commitment to each other 

Enjoy the excitement and build up to your proposal and ring!

Yup.  I pulled the plug the first time around.  I just wasn’t ready.  We didn’t break up.  When I finally was ready, he surprised me with a re-proposal.  Very sweet.

I asked this same question..please let me know how when/how he does it!  I think it takes a lot for a man to re-propose since he is basically conceding to some sort of “failure in the fairytale.”  Deep down though they might not always act like it I think they want everything to be just as perfect as we do.

Yeah I did. The first time he just blurted it out in the car. No ring or anything. He re-proposed when we got the ring. I didn’t think it was necessary. I found the car proposal really sweet 🙂

aspiringpastrychef86:  Congrats on the final payment!

As for the re-proposal, I think it is sweet. It really wouldn’t matter to me if other people thought it was weird or not – the proposal isn’t about everyone else, it is about the two of you. Now, if you were to have already announced your engagement on Facebook or something, gotten all the oohs and ahhs, and then when he re-proposed you posted something like “OMG OMG! SO PROPOSED! I’m getting MARRIED! *SQUEEEEEE*!” I would be confused. But this isn’t your case. It’s something personal for the both of you.
