nicoalann:  I love that story. My proposal wasn’t bad so I can’t can’t contribute in that way but I feel really sad (or roll my eyes) when I see posts from people who can’t get over the dissapointment. I knew I wouldn’t get an over the top movie-style proposal and it wouldn’t have fitted our personalities at all. I feel there is way too much pressure on men or women to plan out the perfect proposal.

That story is hilariously unique and romantic!

My FI’s proposal got totally ruined according to him lol We were at comicon and on Saturday, the biggest day of the event, they do an entire awesome show on stage letting anyone who wishes walk up and model their cosplays. He was planning on proposing on stage. Lights, audience, everything sounded so perfect! Of course, the guards wouldn’t let us through (new guard company totally ruined the show for the rest of the people too). I was expecting a proposal during comicon, so once Sunday came and nothing happened I was super sad. We were out waiting for a couple of friends by the door and he got on one knee and proposed there, then went to find the friend’s we were waiting for lol Personally I loved it, I cried my eyes out and I appreciate not being caught on camera with the snotty nose and red ass face full of tears lol Plus a woman proposed to her Boyfriend or Best Friend in the same place, I appreciate not doing it after them lol

I admit I hated that he just left to get the friends, but we WERE in a hurry to leave to eat. He had planned on many people being a part of the proposal and suddenly it was just us so lots of friends were disappointed, so it turned into three very casual engagement parties, the dinner right after with two friends, then bowling with other friends and soon beach with the rest of the friends!

So. To preface this, I am a control freak and I know that. I tend to get too worked up when things aren’t perfect. I only had a couple weeks with my fiancé. He is military and that’s the only time I would see him between january and August. I knew it would happen then and I requested it happen towards the beginning so it wasnt like “here’s a ring, bye for a few months.” Understandable, right? So a few days passed and no proposal. I could see the ring in his pocket. I expressed to him that I was getting upset over all of the perfect missed moments the past few days. He assured me it was ok, he still loved me despite my controlling nature, and that it would happen. Well we were driving 45 minutes to my house after coming back from dropping off his family and I was just talking non stop. He was just nodding the whole time. Well the next day we got in the car to go to the beach and i forgot something so I went back inside to grab it. When I came out he kept asking if I forgot something and I said no and he asked again and I said “did you think of something?” And then he held out the ring and said “will you say yes?” So I loved it. during that 45 minute drive, turns out he was planning it in his head so he wasn’t paying attention to me! Despite my control freak nature, he managed to catch me off guard and still surprised me! Turns out it’s only about him asking. i didn’t even care about my greasy hair and chipped nails.

mine wasn’t “botched” but was interesting lol.

LOL!! I loved your story. Could be in a movie laughing

My husband (now), took us to vacation in Yellowstone and we had rented out a cabin surrounded by mountains. This one morning when i woke up, for some reason I was just so happy from within. I had no clue why but i was bursting with joy. He was outside on the deck, with music playing. Next to us was a pasture and i had made a friend. A horse named soldier. Soldier always came to see me every morning. He was already waiting for me, with my bed hair, no shoes, morning breath I ran out to meet him and hugged him so tight. I was just so happy that day. laughing I went back in to get something. Heard my boyfriend fall off the deck, came rushing out to check on him as he was laying on the grass cluthching his leg. I was so worried. Bad thoughts racing through my mind.  He got on his knees and asked me to marry him. I didnt see a ring so i thought the fall had damaged his brain and he was firing off circuits in his brain like a mad man. surprised All i could think about was which hospital was closest so I could rush him there.

 THEN, i saw the most beautiful ring in the world appear from a box in his pocket and just like that, i melted into his arms, saying yes yes yes!! a hundred times ๐Ÿ™‚  And we had the most wonderful time ever!!!
