Hi I am new here, I am 34 and I have been with my boyfriend since last August. We are both the same age and although I am a first time bride (and last time bride 🙂 ), he was divorced about five years ago. Neither of us have any children.
We have talked about marriage from quite early on in our relationship, a few weeks ago he asked me to get my ring finger measured and I kind of thought he was joking but I got it measured and a few days ago I was watching battle of the brides lol and he sat down and said I hope you don’t act like that on our wedding day 🙂 and again I thought he was joking and then this morning he said he wanted to marry me and is starting to save up for my engagement ring. He also said he will ask the question properly when he gets my ring 🙂
I guess he kept hinting at it because he knows I’m not a big fan of surprises. But either way I am thrilled about the whole thing and can’t wait to start planning our wedding:-) Ok his way of proposing might not seem the most romantic way by a long shot but he is romantic in other ways.

Congrats! Sometimes I think, in this day and age of over the top proposals that are focused more on show than love, that a measured, even approach is the most romantic proposal of all.
Also, I love the “last-time bride” term!

Thanks! It’s 2.14pm and I have not got out of my pyjamas yet as I’m still floating above the clouds somewhere he he! I asked my best mate of 30 years to be my Maid of honour via Facebook messaging as I was so excited and she replied back within a second lol I know I should have posted her a card or waited till I went back home for a holiday to ask her but I couldn’t wait another second and besides I felt I had to tell someone 🙂

Pearberry I think you are right as I would have been mortified if he had done it live on tv or parachuted out of a plane or something daft like that! My guess is he will either ask me in August on our anniversary or wait until my birthday or Christmas which are only 3 weeks apart. I am not telling my family until I’ve actually got my ring on my finger though 🙁
