ruphiolis:  Its not about sensitivity its about the ridiculousness that seems to be on this site for the perfect proposal story. Is it not enough that the man/woman you love proposed and wants to marry you? You want to make them re-propose just so you have some story to tell everyone to try and make them jealous? Or what? Wtf is the point of a re-proposal?

Ehhhh that’s the kind of question that should only be asked once.  Unless the person being asked says no.  I don’t really get the whole “my proposal isn’t good enough” thing.

ruphiolis:  there is a huge difference between wishing your proposal went differently and asking your FI to re-propose so it fits what you had in your head. One is fine and sometimes understandable, the other is naive and controlling and a selfish silly way to start a relationship.

ruphiolis:  Interesting! I’m commenting to follow.. I feel like this may attract some funny proposal-gone-wrong stroies haha I’m lucky in that my proposal was wonderful – very personal, low key and romantic. I loved it and it is definitely the most amazing moment of my life to date!

I can understand why for some people they wish it may have gone differently, its a very special moment. As long as people remember whats really important 🙂

Unless the venu/place/whatever they were proposing in suddenly burst into flames and we all had to evacute immediately, I see zero reason why anyone should “repropose.” The whole idea seems very dumb to me.

I’m just so happy he finally asked!  The fact that is was a really awkard propsal where pretty much everything went askew makes it even better, it’s something we laugh at now.  We’re proof that it’s the intent that matters not the circumstances.  I wouldn’t trade my proposal for the world.

Miss_E_xx:  I don’t even remember my proposal. I was so ill (pneumonia post chemo) but apparently I said yes. We have 1 photo of the night and I don’t even remember it being taken.

ruphiolis:   See my above response. I have never ever wished for a reproposal because at the end of the day all that is important is that he asked me to marrry him and we got married. The sentiment is the important thing not the trappings and trimmings.

renwoman:  Honestly I prefer hearing stories about proposal that weren’t perfect. It reminds me that life and marriage is about the good times and the bad times, the perfect and the not so perfect.

j_jaye:  Oh my goodness i’m sorry to hear that! But as you said, its the sentiment that’s important. It is a very special moment but hopefully marriage will be full of many other wonderful/special moments!

Miss_E_xx: The most horrible thing is my usually unromantic husband went all out for him. We were in Thailand on a family holiday and he cashed in some of our frequent flyer points for a stay at a 5 star hotel (for one night) and booked a ocean view table at the seaside restaurant. As luck would have it there was a conference at the hotel so most of the rooms were booked out and they were all eating in the convention centre buffet section so the restaurant was deserted. The wait staff and chefs pretty much gave us an amazing experience. My husband said I was so happy about my meal that I was raving about it. They even brought us champagne and desserts for free.

Well that is what my husband tells me anyway. It could have just been a shack on the beach with a ramen noodle for all I know. I woke up the next morning with the ring on my finger and said I guess we got engaged huh!

I struggle to think of any circumstances under which “making” your FI re-propose would not be ridiculous, childish, entitled, and crazy. Could you clarify what exactly your situation is?
