What’s the first thing you said when your fiancé asked you to marry him?
I said, “Really?” I thought he was joking – I was so taken by surprise!
We had just cross-country skied into a cabin for New Year’s Eve. (in retrospect maybe I should not have been so surprised) We got there just at dark and hustled around trying to melt enough snow to cook dinner. After dinner we’re both sitting there in our long johns and he asks me to come sit next to him by the fire. Next thing I know he’s on one knee! Wow! A moment I’ll never forget. 🙂

“Jerry. is there a reason why we are checking the surf so thoroughly? I mean, you don’t even have your surfboard.”
“Uh, I wanted to find a good spot to give you this,” as he took out a little black box with a perfect three stone engagement ring.
“You didn’t get down on your knee! Ask me again,” as I pushed his shoulders down and he fell to his knees in golden sand.
“Will you marry me?”
“Yes, now get up.”
Oh so romantic! lol!

I like these stories! I said “are you sure?” because he’d been adamant he wouldn’t be asking until sometime until 2009, and this was november 2008. he’d also been giving hints recently he might never ask (don’t you hate that!) i actually yelled it, because we were on top of a mountain and it was very windy. i can’t really remember what else we said, it’s a bit of a blur. i remember feeling very excited and jittery though!
I just wanted to add that he didn’t actually ask me! I was hugging the concrete block that said you’d made it to the top of the mountain, felt a tap on my shoulder, turned around and he was down on one knee with this ring in my face. (No box, he knew I’d see the outline in his pants so he’d zipped it up in one of his pockets!)

Well, I thought I said “yes.” My mouth moved and all, but nothing really came out. So I said it again louder and crammed the ring on my finger before he could change his mind!

When he got down on one knee, at first I thought it was the meanest joke – once I realized he was serious, I couldn’t say anything I was so shocked!

I said “are you serious?” and started crying until I realized when he kept looking at me that I hadn’t said yes yet! I said yes and kept crying while jumping up and down flapping my arms like a penguin 🙂

I dunno….I think I said, “really?! Of course!” Then again, when he first told me he loved me I said, “thank you” so who knows =]

“Absolutely” followed by the biggest hug I’ve ever given!

I said “thank you”. He was like…. is that a yes???

He didn’t ask-he handed me the ring and I started giggling uncontrollably. After about an hour, I said you didn’t get a chance to ask but my answer is yes!

haha, I’m in the “are you serious?!” boat too. I was caught by TOTAL surprise. I thought a proposal wouldn’t be for another 4 years, if ever!! Funny thing is, when I told my mom, she said the same thing, “are you serious?!” heh. Then I followed up with “of course I will” or at least I think I did. It was kind of a whirlwind moment and I can’t remember exactly lol

I said “Well, it’s a good thing, because we’re already married”. I never got an official proposal, so after we were married I made him ask me. He still hasn’t gotten down on one knee…

I said “YES!” we hugged and cried a bit and then I immediately said “Ask me again!” and we repeated the whole scenario. He’s re-asked me a few special times more since then too. I don’t see why a girl should get only one proposal…. 🙂

I am not quite sure exactly what I said…but he was walking over to give me the ring (it was a surprise but I had figured it out by this point). I immediately started crying and I probably said “oh my god”. Then of course I said yes and “it’s the most beautiful thing I’ve ever had” (about the ring).
