After talking about our future for some time, I asked Fiance to marry me. He said yes, but we didn’t really consider it official until he gave me a ring months later.

I bought a ring and proposed to my guy.  It was drizzly and muddy though, so I didn’t go down on one knee.

Actually we both proposed…

We had talked about getting married, so I knew it was comming 😀

He proposed first and gave me my ring and all.

And days later we went to this park were we liked going to walk and I asked him 🙂

This is just my opinon, but I feel like in most cases, the man should propose. Here’s my reasoning: us women typically have marriage on the mind much earlier than men do. From my observations/experience, men typically take more time to realise that they do want to get married and spend the rest of their life with their girlfriend, so I feel that it makes it more special for the man to ask in that case. I looked forward to the day when my Fiance would propose because I knew that it would be something that he had thought over and definitely wanted to do and felt comfortable doing – where I was sure I wanted to marry him months sooner! If it were up to me I would have proposed too early for him.

However, if it was going to be something mutual, I can sort-of understand why the woman would propose, but I’m too traditional for that. 😛 If he needs some pushing, throw subtle hints, or even discuss where your relationship is going – I’d much rather do that than up and ask him when he may not be ready.

We came to the decision together. He was away in another city working, and I called him, frantically, saying that we had problems X Y and Z (financial and immigration) and I didn’t know what we were going to do. He suggested marriage, and convinced me that it was the right thing to do. He tried to do a real proposal when he got home, even though that really wasn’t what I wanted. Oh well, he’s a cutie.

I initiated the conversation about getting married, timeline, proposal, etc.  But I knew that I was ready before he was, so the reason he hadn’t asked me was because he wasn’t ready.  Asking someone to marry you is a question you should already know the answer to before you ask it, and I think most girls are ready before most guys, so it’s good that the guy usually asks.  If I had asked when I was ready, Fiance might have said no, which would’ve been devastating.  So yes, I was waiting for a proposal, but really I was waiting for him to be ready.

We just basically discussed it and decided that we wanted to get married. It was a mutual decision, no timelines, there wasn’t a ring or a speech. Just a discussion.
