For a milisecond, then he said “uh the ground hurts my knee”. And he didn’t want people staring at us since we were at a park =]

It bothered me for like a week. Then I realized I was being silly

Mine did, but I wouldn’t have cared if he didn’t.

The boy didn’t get down on his knee. I’d have been mortified if he did. It’s just not US.

The proposal was very sweet anyway.

When my FH proposed in early December, he too didn’t get down on one knee. He did try to put the ring on but both of our hands were shaking like crazy and I was hysterically crying and trying to hug him at the same time. Now that I look back, had I been a bird in the sky passing by I would have wondered what the heck we were doing, haahaahaa

Like you mention for yourselves – for us it was the most perfect series of events and I wouldn’t have had it any other way either Laughing

LOL, my Fiance woke me up in bed and put the ring in my glasses free, blind as a bat face and said “Do you want this?” There was no knee, or at least if there was I didn’t notice!

Some romances aren’t traditionally romantic.

My Fiance got down on one knee but I had to put the ring on. He didn’t know what finger to put it on lol!

Awe! No…my guy didn’t get down on one knee either. He was so nervous that he forgot! LOL…I tease him about it on occasion, but honestly, the proposal was very sweet and very us, and I thought it was adorable that he was so nervous that he forgot :o)

I dont think it matters if he goes down on one knee.  Its the gesture that matters and he wants to marry you thats all that counts x

Mine didn’t. Short story is we were still in bed one random morning, he looked beyond nervous/scared lol and I kept asking him what was wrong, finally he just handed me the ring box without saying anything. When I said “what is this?” he says “umm, do you want it? I mean, want to get married?”

So yeah, not the most romantic story, but hey, it worked! Wink

He did get down on one knee..but he didn’t get a chance to put the ring on my finger bc I grabbed it out of his hand and put it on myself! 

 

Can you tell I was a little excited?!  🙂

We didn’t even have a proposal.  We just decided it was time to start telling my family we were going to get engaged, then tell his family we were, then tell everyone else.

Like with you, it was perfect for us, though people were a little surprised when we told them.

Nope, we were at dinner.  HE was across the table from me.  Didn’t bother me though, the evening was still perfect.

My Fiance got down on one knee and then back up so quickly that I wasn’t sure if he was doing lunges or proposing.
