CONGRATS! Don’t feel bad! You were justified in having those thoughts and it was mean of him to pretend it wasn’t going to happen so it’s a damn good thing he was kidding! Laugh it off and consider it a funny story to tell! (And make him another dinner if it makes you feel better 🙂

Ring pics?

First, ***HUGS!*** Congratulations on your engagement!

Secondly, I actually think that is a sweet story… I mean you were probably totally surprised he proposed to you, right?  But I can understand how you feel, that you feel like your talk forced him into doing it right then.  However, he wanted to make you happy so he proposed right then!  I think you should be excited… I know that alcohol and emotions sometimes don’t mix and I know I have said all kind of things to my SO like that (to the tune of “why won’t you marry me!? haha).  If he is not mad don’t worry about it! Oh, and you don’t have to tell people that exact story… you can do the whole “surprise proposal at home” type thing, if you don’t want to divulge anymore.  

Again, congrats and happy planning! 🙂

I agree with PP’s- it makes a great story and you two will look back on this and laugh!  I’m glad he still went through with it even when you were mad at him!

Congrats on being ENGAGED!

I mean, it sucks but the end result was the proposal. 

If he isn’t mad about it then let it go.

I know quite a few people who have stories like yours. One of my coworkers was on a walk with her bf when he asked her to walk down a pier with him. She actually said to him, “I’m not walking down this pier unless you’re going to propose.” He was mad that she ruined the moment because he was planning to propose at the end of the pier, but they laugh about it now.

I know you feel like you almost backed him into a corner but it would have happened regardless. He had already bought you a ring and now it was just a matter of timing. I think it was really sweet of him to go and get all dressed up so that it was still a special moment.

Just enjoy your new engagement & congrats!

Congrats! & don’t think you ruined it. He wouldn’t have asked if he didn’t want to.

Happy planning!
