It seems like there is something on here every single day about how a proposal wasn’t good enough. I think we all need to be reminded of the purpose and meaning of the proposal.
The fact that your man (most likely) went behind your back and purchased a ring or took you ring shopping says I Love You and I Want You. Because he was so anxious that he messed up or couldn’t even go through with his plans says I Love You and I Want You.
When you put a tremendous amount of pressure on a man to propose, you’re going to get disappointed.
My fiance proposed on Avery Island – an incredibly humid place where they make Tabasco of all things. I was sweating and ugly and there were bugs, alligators, and interesting smells. He pulled out a freakin’ twist tie on accident…
But it was perfect because it was the moment he chose, the location he chose, and he chose ME.
Sure, it’s only a moment you get once (or a few times) in life. Instead of looking at your surroundings or how the proposal went down, perhaps we should all look at the person who asked and say I Love You and Thank You.
