So when I was proposed to, Fiance had dropped me off for work and said he was going to do laundry at home. My boss has 2 buildings and a girl at the second building had to go to the hospital so I had to work her shift. I called Fiance to pick me up and he gave me the ring in the car.
Don’t get me wrong, I was still excited, but I just found out how it was supposed to go:
I wait tables at the first building so he was going to come in, eat lunch, and present my ring for me as the tip. But at the second building, the job is different so he wouldn’t have been able to do that. Normally we work and get the same day off together so he wouldn’t have had another opportunity for a while and he’s impatient so when the first plan got ruined he got frustrated and thought “screw it” and just handed me my ring.
I’m not upset but I can’t quit thinking about how it would have gone down if either Fiance had planned it again for the future or if things had gone right. It maks me a bit disappointed and at the same time I can’t quit smiling at the idea.
Oh well 🙂

When I was proposed to, we were going to go out for dinner and then take a walk around the ravine in our neighborhood after. He was going to propose on our walk. Instead (since I had no idea he was going to propose, a friend asked if we wanted to do something, so I said sure, come to dinner with us. So I texted Fiance and told him that do and so would be joining us. I went to pick him up and he proposed in the car.
I think I actually prefer how it worked out 🙂 it was low key and totally us. Congrats in your engagement!

Reminds me of a show I saw many years ago where the guy proposed during sex and the girl made him propose again so that she could have a nice story to tell her mother. 🙂
I think sometimes we get up a little caught up in the “dream proposal”… my proposal wasn’t very special either, I knew he was going to ask and it was all a bit “planned.” Of course we all want a romantic surprise proposal, but reality is usually a little more grounded.

Congratulations! I get a little sad when I think about how ours went too because he never got to go through with his plan either. He would have had to wait 3 or 4 months in order to do what he wanted so instead he just brought it up while we were at lunch and didn’t even have a ring. We picked out a temporary sapphire and diamond ring right after, so I had something, and then got down on his knee when we got home and asked me.

Well, contracts, anyway!
My Fiance tried to propose at Buckingham Fountain when it was all lit up. It wasn’t even on. At all. Lol.

technically my proposal was during sex when hubby said “im getting you that ring!”…… im either that good or it had been a while for him 😉

Congratulations, you’re engaged!!! That’s the most important part anyways =) I bet someday you’ll laugh about it, it’s still a story in its own way.
