    Fiance proposed to me on April 22nd of this year, and I proposed to him on May 6th. Technically he proposed first, but I wanted to show him that I was just as serious about this commitment as he is. πŸ™‚ Nothing wrong with that, IMO!

    I proposed to my fiancé after he was in a motorcycle accident.  I remember pulling up to the crash and seeing him covered in paramedics.  Almost immediately, I felt our future slip away in the drowning sirens and lights. 

    After he recovered I realized how truly fragile life was and I didn’t want to wait any longer.  We both knew we would get married, we were just waiting on the proverbial “however many months” of salary to be saved for a ring that would prove to the world how much he loved me based on the size of the diamond (forgive my sarcasm).  The thought of losing him was completely unfathomable to me so I went to his parents and asked for their permission to marry their son.  I bought a ring, I put together a huge surprise, and I got down on my knee to ask him to spend his entire life with me.  I wanted to show him how much I loved HIM, how much he meant to ME. 

    In my eyes, life is too short to wait for things to happen to you.  We never know what tomorrow may bring.  People told me that if he wanted to propose to me he would…however to me it goes both ways.  If I wanted to propose to him I would-so I did!  Congratulations, you have a beautiful story!

    @dihy:  Congratulations to you both!

    My husband proposed to me in some rather peculiar circumstances that involved a trip away from me, an emergency room, a cell phone, an emergency flight, and a holiday weekend in a hospital….but we had certainly already decided we were life partners by that point. He joked that he had to ask me as he was tired of waiting for me to ask him. And quite honestly, I was already thinking of doing it even though I had never really felt that inclined to get married before (we were already committed after all) I knew I wanted to be with him, marriage or not and he did want to marry me. He just beat me to it. Since then, even despite being married almost three years now, we ask each other on a regular basis “will you marry me”. So far we always say yes (or remind the other we are already married, at which point we say “yay!”, ha ha).

    I am not a traditionalist, and it does not matter to me who actually does the proposing (leap year or not!). I don’t buy into the idea that women must sit around “waiting” to be proposed to or that if a man does not propose he is not really into it. What does that say about a non-proposing woman then? In my world a relationship is not driven by only one person (the one with a penis, apparently), and I want no part of a relationship like that. All that matters to me is that it is hearfelt and genuine and you both are on the same page. To me, whoever does the asking, it should be a very mutual decision.

    @dihy:  lol my sentiments exactly. This is why I stay out of the Waiting boards. I understand if your SO said he wants to propose, but otherwise, why are the rest of the women just waiting around being all frustrated?
