Crying over being ‘too happy’ is a farce. Crying is a psychological and psychosomatic reaction to something distressing you, not because you are happy. People who cry at other people’s weddings, babies being born and the like are likely doing so because they’re either terrified of the reality of their situation, or are jealous. Happens a lot.
I didn’t cry. I knew he was going to propose, I helped him pick out the ring. I was glad. Then we went out and got ice cream. All in all, a pretty damn good day.

@Peacockfeather: Our proposal story was about the same as yours. We went and picked out a ring, paid for it, and went out for ice cream afterwards. When we got home 20 minutes later, he proposed. I didn’t cry either. I think was in disbelief it was happening after waiting so long, hahaha.

I’m totally surprised that so many bees DIDN’T cry because i toooootally did. i didn’t cry until he was hugging me after we put the ring on though. i was just so overwhelmed and excited and thankful that i couldn’t help it.

I didn’t cry, and I’m usually pretty emotional! I knew it was coming, though, and I was just more excited than anything 😀

So my sister in law apparently could not stop crying when she was proposed to. I expected that to happen to me but, nope. I was really happy and felt really in love, but no tears for me.

@MissKPreK: I did not shed one tear. I am not one to cry easily! My friends call me the ice princess

Ugh, I sobbed like a baby. I’m so emotional, haha.

@MissKPreK: I’m an incredibly emotional person, and I didn’t cry when he proposed. I did cry a little when my mom was talking to him about it on the phone, but the actual proposal? No tears. (Maybe I was in shock?)
Please don’t worry about the fact that you didn’t cry! It doesn’t mean you love him any less … Sometimes it just doesn’t happen at that very moment.

Well, I’m glad I’m not the only one. Thanks bees for helping me feel normal!
Also, is there a way to edit the title? I just noticed I put “man” and I don’t want same-sex couple bee’s feel excluded from this topic!

I envisioned my proposal to be a really emotional time with me crying and being so excited! Sadly, it was very uneventful and unthoughtful

Yes, I cried. He proposed at midnight on my birthday and I was 99% sure it was coming because he had been dropping hints for weeks. But when we sat on the sofa at midnight and he told me he loved me and to close my eyes, I knew he was about to put a ring on my finger, and I melted into a puddle of tears. It wasn’t a fancy, elaborate proposal — it was a very simple moment — but that’s why it touched me so much. It was the dearest, sweetest thing that has ever happened to me and I’ll always love him for it.

I was in tears and alls I kept saying wass “omg are you serious” over and over lol. We ended up going to the beach with the puppy and I was picking up shells to make wreaths with and poor guy was jamming them all into his pocket. I picked up this huge on and he told me to go rinse it first so he had he dog sitting next to him with him on one knee. I didn’t think anything of it since I have a crazy neurotic dog and I figured he was keeping her calm while i walked away. I walked back to him and was going to hand him a shell as he opens the box. Honestly I can’t remember anything he said to me, not even the will you marry me part. I was just in tears saying omg are you serious over and over again. The poor guy had to ask me again to marry him. I said yes and then fireworks went off in the front and back of me. It’s a day i’ll never forget and i’m so happy he made it a surprise and memorable.

I don’t think I cried, only a little bit of welling up, but not real crying
