Old thread, but I am curious to know if anyone else went this way.

 

when I tried proposing, he turned it down because proposing was something he wanted to do. He saw it as his ‘job’ – so much so that he didnt actually think I was in any way serious when I asked him. It literally did not occur to him until months later that I was actually trying to actually propose when I had flat out asked, “will you marry me?”

I proposed to my man. I got him his ring aand gave it to him on his birthday with  spoon that said be mine for as long as we both shall live and the spoon and the ring were inside a box of peach cobbler. It was a SWEET proposal.

My husband is a huge nerd, and he was SO EXCITED for a trip to New Zealand, so we could see the set of the Lord of the Rings. I knew he wasn’t going to propose because I’d spent the previous 4 years telling him I didn’t want to ever get married. Once I changed my mind, I got really excited about planning a proposal just for him. I bought a replica of the ring from the movie, in addition to a real mangagement ring, and when we were posing for a picture in front of a Hobbit house, I got down on one knee. Later, we used the ring as a cake topper.

Bump! With an uber-nerdy story of my own!

I proposed to FI on his birthday. I happen to not believe in “if he doesn’t ask, he isn’t ready for marriage” bullcrap. I knew he was ready from conversations we’d had, and I was more than ready. So I decided to propose to him… in Ancient Greek! 😀 We’re both in grad school for linguistics, and he’s really into philology, his Masters thesis is about Ancient Greek, so I thought I’d make the proposal special and personal.

I did some research on internet and found out what letters to write. Just before Christmas (his birthday is in January) we went to an antiquarian and saw an old copy of the New Tedtament in its original language – Ancient Greek. He really wanted it, and I bought it to give him on his birthday. So he knew about the present, but little did he know that I had written ‘will you marry me?” in Ancient Greek with a gold coloured pen inside!

When he opened his present, my heart was racing. I knew he’d say yes, otherwise I would never ask. When he opened the book and saw the writing, he read it over and over again, looked me in the eyes and said “does this say what I think it says?” I said “Yes, will you marry me?” He got teary-eyed and said yes. This book is now his most precious belonging.

My birthday being exactly three weeks after his, we went together and chose a ring for me, which he gave me on my birthday… with the word “Dualis” engraved in it! (Linguistic nerdy thing; a declension that is not plural, but dual.)

Wow! You ladies really planned it out! I just looked at my SO one day and said “We gonna get married or what?” And he said “Yea, how about Halloween?” 

True story. But neither of us are super romantic and we are both very blunt so it worked for us. I’m glad to hear of other ladies proposing!
