    I think it’s awesome that he proposed to you naked! That’s something my FI probably would’ve done too if he’d thought of it. 

    My proposal was very us. FI penned his thoughts down on a piece of paper and had it handy in case he forgot all the lovely things he wanted to say when he asked the question. It was in our living room, just the two of us (and our furrbabies!) and it was the best proposal I could’ve thought of. I’m not one for being the center of attention so I’m VERY glad it wasn’t in front of a ton of other people or anything! 

    I actually wrecked his plans for the evening a bit when i said I didn’t feel like going out to dinner (he HAD plans with the restaurant but easily switched into the at home plan). We both would’ve been blubbering idiots at the restaurant…instead we were at home! LOL.

    My husband spontaneously proposed while we in the car right outside the Holland Tunnel when he was completely hung over on New Year’s Day.  We were on our way to his mom’s house.  I don’t remember this part, but apparently my first response was, “Seriously?”  Haha.  We stopped for lunch and decided not to tell anyone til we had an engagement ring.  (That was important to him.)  And we called my parents to make dinner plans for the next night so he could “ask” my dad for permission.

    I am glad it was spontaneous and low key.  Grand gestures make me feel awkward and wary.  We were both so happy that day.  I remember grinning at each other about our secret while we were at his mom’s house that afternoon.

    Thats an interesting story!  FI surprised me, when I opened the door from taking out the dogs he was there on one knee with a ring.  I was speechless he said I dropped the leashes.  I don’t remember that I do remember running up to him and hugging him though lol.

    I would be gutted if my SO didn’t make an effort with his proposal. If he just gets down on his knees at some random moment, I’ll pretend not to realize what he’s doing and tell him to stop kidding about and get up before his clothes get dirty. 

    I don’t have any specific wishes – I just want him to be thoughtful and make a bit of effort to arrange something special for me, and I want us both to look nice and have a little celebration afterwards, even if it’s just a bottle of champagne. 

    My nightmare would be if he proposes when I’m crying and covered in snot, or lying in bed, or standing at the kitchen sink with no makeup on. If he makes no effort at all to be thoughtful and romantic, there’s a chance that I might say no and tell him that I’ll consider saying yes if he proposes to me properly.
