    I was in complete shock. I was never expecting a proposal. I thought he was actually joking (it is so like him). I told him to get off the floor (since he was kneeling). I remember I kept repeating “what are you doing?!?!?” “what are you doing?!?!?!?”

    I didn’t know what to say, so I just kept kissing him until I found my words.

    I hit my FI.  Literally shoved him ala Elaine on Seinfeld (“Get. OUT!”).  Then I screamed and started bawling uncontrollably.

    It wasn’t unexpected, we had already discussed marriage, and he presented me with a ring soon after that. We hugged and kissed, that was about it. Some of my friends were like, wailing, sobbing and hyerventilating during their proposals haha I don’t know ours just wasn’t that dramatic!

    I was offended/confused.  He went to pull the box out of his pocket and I shouted “What are you doing?” Then cried hysterically (and not one of those pretty cries you see on TV), whilst nodding yes emphatically.

    I expected it…knew it was coming and laughed my head off. I laugh when I get nervous. I cover my face with my hand and laugh. I have a great picture of it. I might add that he surprised me and invited 6 couples to dinner and witness it. We had a blast and he even managed to surprise me with the dinner at least.

    I could not stop laughing though and turned all kinds of red. LOL

    i knew it was coming, but he said something stupid ( a song title), and the first words out of my mouth were “your dumb”…i look back and feel bad but at the time i couldnt believe he quoted a song.

    None of the above! I knew it was coming and he was desperately trying to throw me off by postponing it (fail!), so I was getting kinda impatient. When he finally got around to proposing I just kinda smiled and we cuddled up on the couch together. No laughing, no crying or screaming, just us taking a moment to soak it all in. 🙂

    I was in shock and and did a lot of screaming. I did cry, but it was more from the sheer surprise.
