I had the same reaction.  I held my breath and didn’t say anything.  Poor Fiance had to say, “ummm, Virginia? Are you gonna be okay?”

I started to cry and just looked at him. He had to ask me if that meant yes. It was perfect though – wouldn’t have had it any other way.

I was barely able to utter the words “YES” because I was in tears haha. Luckily Fiance had set up a camera to record everything so I can see it over and over Laughing 


I do have a friend who’s Fiance proposed and she said nothing for a really long time. So he got up, got down on one knee again and proceeded to propose again–this time she said yes.

I started crying and mumbled out “Oui, Oui, Oui”  He asked me to marry him in french (his mother tounge, my second)  Then a vagely remember saying should I take off the current ring that I was wearing so he could put the ring on… It is all one big happy blur…

Haha, I had the same reaction as some other posters. I was in COMPLETE shock. We have a video of it that my Mom took on her phone (she knew it was coming), and I cringe every time I see it. The first thing I said was “Holy $—!” (and I am SO not a swearer!). After that I was too surprised to know what to do. I just put my hands over my mouth and nodded. It wasn’t until later that night, when it really sunk it when his Dad called me and said “welcome to the family” that I burst into tears and realized what had happened!

UGH. I wish I had the scream, jump up and down, cute reaction immediately. I fail. lol.

It’s a little foggy because I was so excited in the moment and also a little confused, but I believe it involved a little jumping up and down and shrieking/giggling like a 5 year old with YES repeated a million times – here’s the story (sorry its long)……

I had this really strange feeling that a proposal was coming, we had talked about it tons and just certain comments he had said made me feel like it was really close. He wanted to incorporate Christmas because I am crazy for Christmas but I know he’s not near as into it as I am. Usually I am begging that we set up the Christmas tree (a tradition to do it together since he set it up with me the first time I had a tree because we started dating just before Christmas) and for once he was offering to do it early (like November 22 – early) and so I knew something was up.

Anyway, he had drilled out the top of a glass ornament and hung a ring inside it for me to put on the tree. When I realized what was going on, I wasn’t sure if I needed to break the ornament or what and so I was flustered and excited to then find him down on one knee. Luckily i didn’t break the ornament so now we have a nice momento of the proposal to hang on our tree every year!!!!

i was surprised too, and didn’t really know what to say so i just started making out with him. it worked.

we were camping, and the rest of the day i literally just couldn’t move. my family and some friends were with us and they kept doing different things, but we just sat at the campsite because i was frozen.

LOL! I laughed for about 20 minutes and then asked if he was kidding. After another half hour of laughing, I finally said Yes!

i immediately continued to cry (like ugly / gross cry… i had already been crying because he gave me a gift right before ) …then i pulled him up from his knee and sobbed all over his shoulder saying something muffled like “all i’ve ever wanted was to be your wife. yes” sob, sob, ugly cry… we took pics like 3 seconds after that but i refuse to show them because i look DISGUSTING.Yell
