I didn’t cry because I knew it was coming. We had talked about it, he had the ring already, and I had a feeling he would do it the day that he did because we had a trip planned to one of our favorite locations. It was still meaningful though and I was elated and happy when he asked! Actually, I said yes before he even finished the question haha. I may have cried if we were by ourselves, but we were with one other person and I felt somewhat awkward around him so that may have played into it. Tears or no tears though, I was very happy when Fiance asked the question 🙂

I didn’t cry, but I did this hyperventilating/gasping thing I do when I’m about to do a happy cry.

- Wedding: June 2013 - Country Club
I didn’t cry…Fi was very surprised because I cry over EVERYTHING. Except getting engaged?! haha. I’m weird.
Also: I cry at wedding stuff all the time now, though. When I found the song I want to walk down the aisle to, I couldn’t stop crying hahaha. I guess I’m making up for not crying at the proposal.

@Peacockfeather: dont’ agree with what you said. I didn’t cry while he popped the question, but I do cry at babies being born, beautiful weddings and things and emmotional moments.
I thought my ring was fake, it was such a surreal moment. I am a bit socially awkward so I dont’ think I knew how to act when the focus is on me and at something so meaningful.

I am SUCH a crier and thought for sure that I’d be crying when the big moment arrived.
But I was so overwhelmed and excited and shocked that I didn’t cry when it actually happened.
I do, however, sometimes cry happy tears when I think about that moment. lol

Nope, no tears. I was definitely shocked, overwhelmed and super happy

No, and I just don’t cry for excitement. Some people do but I just don’t…

Didn’t cry, got a little teary but that is all. I don’t think I have ever cried from happiness. I was beyond happy but I just don’t cry for that for some reason my body only tells me to cry for sad things.

@Khalessi3: Scientific fact doesn’t require you to agree!

Nope. I think because I was waiting for it for a while…. I was very happy!

@Peacockfeather: Do you have a source for this? I am curious because I also don’t agree. I cry every time I’m ecstatically happy, including when I was proposed to.

@Peacockfeather: then I would like some data to back that up because I don’t believe you. And yes I did tear up at my proposal. I was overwhelmed by how much he went through for the proposal.

@Peacockfeather: You saying something falls into a specific interpretation doesn’t make it a scientific fact. A scientific fact would be something about the neurons and hormones and chemicals universally associated with tears. Calling it “distress” or jealousy doesn’t really tell us any “facts”. Some people cry when they get hit in the nose, even if it doesn’t hurt because it’s a nerve reaction. Some people cry when they get a rush of certain chemicals, which can be associated with a surge of emotion of a variety of different qualities – happy, sad, fearful, etc. How people define their feelings isn’t up for fully universal objective scientific classification.
I cry when I’m happy, I cry when I’m sad, I cry when I’m relieved, I cry when I see a cute baby, I cry when I’m proud, I cry when I laugh too hard, and I cry when I’m overwhelmed.
Weirdly, I didn’t cry when I got engaged – I was more in shock than anything else! I cried later, though, when we were talking about how we were going to live our lives. I felt neither jealous (because it was happening to me) or distressed, because I was – and am – extremely, boyantly, jofully excited about the future and him.
