amandeebee:  Also I have this quote from Chandler Bing that I’ve edited a bit to help you through this:

“Oh, I know, this must be so hard. “Oh no, man I love loves me. He gave me a ring and a proposal. My wallet’s too small for my fifties AND MY DIAMOND SHOES ARE TOO TIGHT.”

nattiejeanne:  Thank you. :] It was so adorable. He called me from the jewelers and told me he was at his house and coming over to see me. I was absolutely shocked. I knew he was going to propose at some point, but his timing took me completely by surprise.

I had some disappointment, but it wasn’t with him. I had a bit of word vomit that I couldn’t help in the middle of his speech (he was very serious and put a lot of thought into what he was saying; I went silly simply out of nervousness), and I feel like I kinda ruined it for him.

After, we also went to see a different movie than he had originally wanted. He picked A Winter’s Tale. I picked the sequel to 300 (he ended up hating it). It didn’t occur to me until later that he had picked a romantic movie and planned the sequence of events for the evening out in advance.

I wish I would have given him more of an emotional reaction and went along with the romantic movie choice afterwards. I left this out of my “Take me off the list” post because I was feeling pretty crappy about it. I got over it a couple of days later. He’s not upset by it. I just know that he put a lot of thought into the evening, and I was very worried that I had taken some of the wind out of his sails. My brain just kinda froze up on me that night. Even though I knew the proposal was happening, I still sort of went into shock and turned into a jackass.

MsW-to-MrsM:  I absolutely worry about myself doing this! I sort of freak when things get too serious and tend to say something stupid/funny (or what I think is funny). Either that or I’m going to cry hysterically.

Mine was him at home, handing me a box and asking me if I wanted to be Mrs. Hislastname. He’s not a romantic guy, though he was going to wait to the cruise to ask. It’s a funny story. And he got me an amazing ring. I can’t complain.

Try to find the joy or humor in the proposal – a lot of guys aren’t super romantic or don’t really get into the crazy, huge proposals. But he meant his with love and that’s what counts.

You just like to complain for attenion or because you are just a downer. There should be a litmited amount of negative post one user can make.

nattiejeanne:  Don’t worry! I’m over it now, and we are both quite happy. I thought the same as you, though. I knew I was either going to go goofy or cry. I’m sure after a little time passes, I’ll find it funny.

So first, you make him blow a grand getting you a second ring, and now you want him to give you another proposal? I think you need to seriously rethink your priorities, and what marriage actually means to you.

MariContrary:  Geez be careful saying that. I made the mistake of telling her to elope before he ran for the hills in one of her other posts and the kindness police jumped all over me like I was out of line. It only takes 5 minutes to read her posts and see she is either trolling or crazy.

Because you know, it’s okay to jump on each other about our rings or what we might wear or something, but if you have sincere concern about a persons mental health you should lie and send a smiley emoticon.

Fuck the police.
