    I actually had to ask him before I answered this post ! At first he said no, he wasn’t nervous. Then he admitted that he was a little bit . . . Not because he was afraid I’d say no (we’d talked about getting married for forever , I built my ring , etc. ) but he was nervous that I’d figure it out before we got to the top of the Overlook and that it wouldn’t be the surprise that he’d been dreaming about. Needless to say , it all ended up perfect 😄

    Yes he was nervous, not because he was afraid of my answer, but because he wanted it to be absolutely perfect, which it was. He did a great job. But, yes, his heart was pounding and his hands were shaking! It was very cute. I remember he was nervous the first time he told me he loved me, too.

    My husband actually proposed to me twice and he said he wasnt nervous either time, especially the second “official” time because he already knew the amswer.

    manga :  Oh my goodness, yes! My boyfriend was shaking and sweting like crazy. (I saw the ring–which he still doesn’t know– so I kew what was up haha). He could barely even ask me he was so nervous! He KNEW I would say yes, but I guess there’s just something about popping THE question that makes guys nervous!

    He wasn’t nervous at all. He had picked out a ring specially for me but then didn’t actually consider making the proposal a romantic moment, so he wasn’t  flustered at all and I guess he knew I would say yes. 

    I was a bit gutted about the whole thing tbh – kinda the one time you should really push the boat out!!

    manga :  Mine was definitely not nervous at all. That’s why I was so surprised when he did it, because he was acting no different than any he does any other day!

    He wasn’t that nervous! He said he knew I was going to say yes LOL. Go figure, we have been together for almost 7 years tongue-out

    No, because we talked about marriage and the future a lot before the proposal (we were in a very long distance relationship and talking about those things kept us sane), so it was almost always on his mind. But I had the feeling that he was nervous at the very last moment!

    My Fiance just proposed to me on Sunday afternoon 🙂  When he showed up at my doorstep that afternoon, I had a feeling (I’ve had a feeling for a couple weeks it might be coming soon!).  And there were things that just made me think it was most likely going to happen that day, so I was more aware of how he was acting.  He asked me to go for a walk around the lake behind the house (can take 45 minutes-1 hour to walk the whole thing).  He seemed unusually quiet during the walk, though we had some conversation.  The fact he talked less than usual was a sign!

    I think he was nervous because of logistics – he was planning to do it on another day, but when he  arrived at the house, and seeing what a beautiful day it was, he decided to do it.  He had to show my grandma the ring (who gave us the diamond), my mom too, and then ask my mom how to get an opportunity to talk to my dad alone without me knowing (grocery errand!  lol though I had an idea it happened then) to ask his blessing.  After they returned from the trip is when he asked me to go for the walk.  So it was very quick and spontaneous how it all happened.  That may have been the reason for the nerves… but not muchso, because we have been talking about getting married since last December, and I had told him just a couple of weeks ago that if he asks me to marry him, I’m going to say yes, no matter what (and of course, I did!).  I think *I* may have been just as nervous at the anticipation of it happening!!!

    I think he was a little.  We had talked about it, and I knew it was coming then, but I think he was worried that he wouldn’t propose how I wanted and I’d be dissapointed.  I wasn’t. 🙂

    My Fiance seemed composed leading up to the last second before he knelt on one knee.  When he went to ask me to marry him he had difficulty getting the words out.  It was endearing.
