    Only one.  =) Thank goodness.  My ex of 3 years did talk about getting married, but there wasn’t an official proposal.

    @mypinkshoes:  I voted “only the one” but technically I’ve gotten two from my Fiance. One the day after we met (it was mostly a joke proposal but did include a ring) and then the real one 4 years later. ETA: I accepted both and called him my fiance for a couple weeks after the first one. But to be fair I was 16 so I thought it was perfectly reasonable to do things like that.

    Only once, thank goodness! Well, only one I’ve said yes to.

    I’ve had two others: one was by my first ‘real’ boyfriend, in his truck, on the way to my house, during a fight. Um, no.

    The other was through text message by a guy I’d had a crush on for four years who was in the marines and training in NC at the time (I texted back hell no to that.)

     

    And then Fiance, whom of course I said YES! to. 😉

    I only count one!!!! Lol

    @mypinkshoes:  A friend convinced us to hang out in a group setting and we did for a couple hours. Then we exchanged screen names and talked till 3 in the morning. During said conversation we talked about our future careers and decided that our future selves made a good couple. And he said something about craving cookies and I said I would bring him cookies if he brought me a ring. He proposed in his car with a CZ ring and fake flowers. We continued talking 24/7 for a couple weeks and then I realized I had a giant crush on him. And then we started dating :). We still talk constantly 5 years later :).

    Technically we met a couple years earlier when his then gf told him I had money and he asked me if he could borrow money to buy his mom flowers for valentines day (we went to the same high school). I leant him the money and he paid me back the next day. And we hung out on new years eve with friends a couple months before the proposal, but it was with friends and I didn’t think I would see him again (he was in college already) so I didn’t pay that much attention to him. So I count the day before we got engaged as the day we met because thats the first day we really talked.

    Does it count as a proposal if he gives you the ring that he’d already bought for his other secret girlfriend that he was cheating on you with because she turned it down?  And then you turned it down as well before you both found out about each other?  Bahaha.  Ladies and gentlemen, my ex!

    Three times. Two with BIG rocks and one when I was breaking up with the dude. He didn’t have enough money to even pay attention though so no ring. It was a little too late to save that relationship. Only one is important. I got the best man out of the three for sure.

    • Wedding: September 2014 - county fairgrounds

    I had 4, i know for someone that’s 20 that’s a lot to have all by different people techniquely i’ve had 5 proposals (2 by my current fiancee)

     

    my bf when i was 17 asked me to marry him after two months and i said ok but wanted to wait a while before getting married to get settled and everything, we broke up a few months later (good thing i wanted to wait to get married) there was no ring for this one

    One of my boyfriends when i was 17 into 18 told me we were getting married after a few months of dating and would talk about our wedding but i didn’t really get a say in any of the details, he was abusive and after a while of trying to break up with him i finally succeeded, there was no ring with this one.

    Another boyfriend when i was 18 proposed after about 2 weeks. i told him no but maybe someday it was just too soon for me. (we broke up after about 1 1/2 months) proposal was over the phone (it was a long distance relationship) so he may have had some kind of ring but i don’t know

    4th and 5th time were by my fiancee. 1st time was after 2 1/2 months together when i was 18, he had his wisedom teeth out and was on percoscet and i was taking care of him. He asked me to marry him and if i was ever planning on breaking up with him to do it right then and leave forever because i would break his heart and he would just die bc if he got in any further than this he’d be crushed, but i always just chalked this one up to the percoscets and not a real thought out proposal but thought it was very sweet and we joked about it for a while, o and did i mention that he sang to me, yea we’ll definately chalk it up to the percoscets haha the 5th one was when we’re 19 and had been together for about 1 1/2 years (a little more realistic time frame to ask someone to marry you haha) we went to disney world where he proposed in front of the castle on mainstreet while we were suppose to be having a cast member take our picture. this proposal did include a ring and obviously i said yes if he’s my soon-to-be husband. here’s a picture of the last proposal.

    @tcanne:  Lol – oh no you don’t, trust me!

    @mypinkshoes:  Well, ok, twist my arm!  Basically, my ex was a complete psycho who had a secret girlfriend whom he went to great lengths to keep top secret.  Um, except for the fact that she was pregnant and he was planning to move in with her and her son apparently while still dating me.  Not sure how that would have played out, but luckily I found out before it became an issue!  I told her, we both broke up with him, and became pretty good friends, haha.

    Note: Sadly, she lost that baby.  Also, she got back together with him a few months later and they now have a kid together.  She’s still with him….and I feel badly for her.  She was a really nice girl, she was just way too forgiving and had no self-confidence.  Not sure whatever happened to that ring, lol.

    Also, this was all like 8 years ago and I swear, exciting things like this do not usually happen in my life!
