I didn’t react how I thought, I thought I was going to bawl, but I didnt. He gave me a gift first. A handmade book he made of the reasons he loved me and kneeled down when I got to the last one. When he have me the gift, I was like omg this is happening and I was actually super nervous! He didn’t say anything other then ask me to marry him. I just started jumping up and down and squeling, which got our dog super excited, which just added to my excitement more. He thought I was crazy! But loved my reaction!

I was so convinced that I would know when he was going to ask. SO convinced!

He took me totally by surprise in the end and I burst into tears as soon as he got the ring box out. It’s all on video so I get to relive that over and over lol

Probably for the best though as it was all a bit of a blur. We’re not sure he actually asked the question and I’m not sure I actually said the word yes! Haha

ladybug55078:  I was like “whoa, really?!” Lol and then I said yes. I didn’t cry, but then again I’m not a very emotional person.

I was shocked and said ‘holy shit’ and just stared at the ring dumbfounded. He was like “you can wear it ya know…” and then spent a few minutes jumping up and down yelling “oh my god, oh my god”.

I thought I would have been soooo excited and happy… instead I had been acting like an idiot all day because I thought he wasn’t going to do it (I knew he had a ring and the setting was perfect, what was the hold up!?) so when he did do it, I cried.  Tears of happiness, relief and guilt for my silly behaviour!

I knew it was coming because we picked the ring out together so when the ring was actually in hand, I was covered in soap from washing dishes. He brought me into the living room, I sat down and he got down on one knee and I said ‘yes, of course’. It was more just total happiness than anything. The dishes went undone that night btw lol

JessieFay13:  I was the same way.  I was in shock! I always pictured the moment with him and thought I would cry happy tears, but after I said yes, I was like “Really? Are you serious?” lol with no tears until later in the night.

I knew it was going to happen since we were in Hawaii, and I knew he had the ring.

We had a special day planned, and I thought he was hinting at me to wear a nice dress (in reality it was nightime so he picked the longer dress cuz it was warmer lol)

We kissed dolphins and had a sunset cruise with fireworks so I thought he would propose on the cruise. I got quite naseous however as I wasn’t used to having the room move so to speak, and once we got on the deck i started repeating in my head, “please don’t propose here, please don’t propose here,” because it was quite crowded and i hate being the center of attention.

I suggested we got for a nice walk by the beach after since I think being waterside is very romantic and I wanted us to have somewhere to go afterwards.

We walked for quite a while but there was still a lot of people out, and my SO did not seem to have any thoughts of proposing.. we even saw another guy get on his knee to propose and I felt quite sad and disheartened… and almost angry since I thought for sure tonight was the night.

We finally kept walking where it was more deserted and he finally got down on one knee, and I forgot everything he said, but all I saw was the sparkle in the dark and I burst into tears in relief and happiness– it was very quick though just a few seconds and apparently I said yes before he finished asking lol

I then asked him to put the ring on again so I could experience the moment better, and we ended up dropping the ring in the sand.. in the dark LOL

Quite an ordeal but happy all the same 🙂 He said he was touched that I cried, even though it was like for a quick 2 seconds lol He also had the same feelings about proposing on the cruise when he saw how many people there were, and he was going to suggest walking on the beach but I said it first heh

Im pretty sure I ruined the proposal because I couldnt stop saying “is this a joke, omg are you sure? are you serious?!” I was so surprised and I wish I just had kept my mouth shut to let him do his thing without my outbursts in between!!

It is all such a blur!  It was very unexpected, and I dont even remember him asking.  I actually asked him later that day if I even let him ask, or if I just started blubbering yes.  I balled like a baby, and the pictures we took later that day my eyes are super swollen lol.

I thought I would cry and maybe faint and be super demure, but instead I loudly squealed out “WHAT ARE YOU DOING?!” when he got down on his knee. I couldn’t hear/remember ANYTHING he said (but the ring and the knee kind of helped me get the picture) and I pulled him up and hugged him really tight and said OF COURSE!
