And did you mind that there wasn’t an actual proposal? Or e-ring?
I discovered it the other week. OH and I have discusted getting married in the past but never made anything ‘official.’ Then the other day we were driving back from the shop and he said:
“How does it feel to be engaged to a business owner!” (He’d just establised his company)
Not a proposal and there was no ring but it made me smile all the same, now we use that word, it’s official!
How about you?

Haha. I love that. It’s so honest, it makes my heart pitter patter. When my fiance and I were looking for rings, which took about a month we called eachother one anothers fiances through the entire process. While we did have a little proposal after we got the ring it was still not a surprise or anything like that. It was pretty much “I have a speech for you and I want to propose to you, lets go to this cliff, you’ll like it”. Haha. Surprise, formal proposals are nice but you know what, depending on the couple you just don’t need it. You guys sound amazing, Congratulations 🙂

FI and had had talked about it for a while. We were waiting to be done with school and established. We were just talking one day about the future and if not to renew his apartment lease. All I said, was let’s get married. That was that. The next day we were talking with vendors. I did have my 5 year anniversary ring that I used as my engagement ring. He did give me the ring of my dreams in January. We’re having a super short engagement – Nov. till June. When you know – you know.

My friend refers to her boyfriend as her fiancw. They’re getting married late this year even though he has not officially proposed yet. I think it is cute

We had been talking about marriage for several months and one day I declared we were engaged. He simply agreed, made me call him fiance about three times (“if you want to make it official you have to call me the thing!”) and that was that. I don’t mind at all — I even got to pick out my e-ring which helped because I am picky and FI has said that was the one thing he was really stressed about. It does make it a little awkward when family and friends demand a proposal story because there isn’t one.

Reminds me of when my SO didn’t inform me we were exclusive. We were just sitting at a restraunt when he turned to the waiter and said “My girlfriend would like pancakes for dessert.” I nearly fell off my seat. LOL. We had known each other for two years by that time.
Recently out of nowhere my SO has been wanting to know my ring size and yesterday he pointed to a ring and said “What do you think of this as a wedding ring?”
I think he ment engagement ring lol. Not yet engaged.

I didn’t really have a proposal so to speak either. We had discussed getting married and I finally looked at him one night one the couch and said, “So, are we going to do this thing, or what?” He just said, “sure” and we went back to watching tv. lol. I did tell him later (a week or two) that I would like to have the ring I had shown him in the past….a few weeks later, we ordered it! He had told me that he wanted me to have a ring too so it wasn’t like I made him get it 🙂

We talked about getting married like, 3 days after we met (and 1 day he told me he was in love with me…what!). In 2 weeks, we had moved in together. Took 3 years to get a “real” proposal and ring, but we’ve basically been married since the day we met. Haha.

We just decided to get married, sussed out the dates, and then we were engaged. He did still end up getting a ring and getting down on one knee, but by that point we’d already booked a venue, bought the dress, etc. I think that was more for him than for anyone else, though I can’t lie I enjoyed it.

FI and talked about it. He proposed – an intimate proposal just between the 2 of us… and we kept it a secret for a while. I am a bit of a wierdo – in that I wanted an intimate moment and memory – just the two of us that wasn’t perverted by other people’s expectations once the news came out. I love to hear that the 2 of you shared an equally intimate moment – something real and in the moment.
