Love everyone’s stories! My FH proposed while on military deployment for 6 months, we met up in Spain during his break. It was at an outdoor bar overlooking the Alhambra palace in Granada. Here’s a pic I took right beforehand 🙂

Haha My Fiance and I live together and I had no idea, either! That is funny that you were playing with his pocket and little did you know what was right there inside! My Fiance hid the ring box in his sock (he was wearing ADIDAS sport pants, so I couldn’t see a bump or anything) and he walked around the entire mall and all along the lakefront with it in there! LOL
Isn’t it amazing how things work out they way they do?

Me Too! I always am exhausted at the end of the day, but love being in bed with FH and our dogs. It’s my little quiet, comfy world with my favorite peeps. On my 30th birthday, I woke up, was handed a birthday card and then FH was on his knees. I was barely awake to notice what was happening. With no makeup, bead head, morning breath and definately unsexy jammies. I am not comfortable with public attention and he said it seemed like a place we were always happy. Silly and plain, but very us.

@beeble2121: he said it seemed like a place we were always happy. Silly and plain, but very us.
Same here! We are always happiest snuggled up, cuddling on the bed. It may not be incredibly romantic, or a jumbo tron, or a fancy location… but it’s *us*.

He gave me the ring one morning while I was still in bed… super cute for me.

My Fiance took me on a surprise trip to Disneyworld. He took me to Victoria & Albert’s (a five star restaurant) and then took me to see the fireworks in Magic Kingdom. He proposed during the fireworks right in front of Cinderella’s Castle. It was amazing 🙂

He proposed at Port Campbell On 18th March 2013. For those of you who don’t know, it’s in Victoria, Australia. Near the 12 Apostles and a whole lot of other scenic places. We drove 4 hrs there, as we wanted to experience our first time there together and to get engaged. Yes, I was expecting it as we had picked the ring out together and he had it for months 🙂 it was all planned, to the day (18th March; our anniversary) except I didn’t know the exact time of the day. I intentionally stayed awake with him watching tv in our motel room til midnight to see if he’d do it on our anniv. A few minutes past 12am and he was still watching so I thought maybe he’d do it after we woke up after a good refreshing night’s sleep, but then he looked over at me and told me he wanted to be with me forever etc. etc. and concluded with ‘with that said, will you marry me?’ And of course I had to Yes! He’s the love of my life 🙂 Even though I was somewhat expecting it, I still got really emotional, gave him a long tight hug and had a short cry hehe 🙂 wasn’t really the most romantic proposal story but it’s our story that will stick with me forever 🙂

My fiance proposed on the beach in Fiji at the Sofitel resort. It was the place we went to on our first date for drinks. We had a private table set up on the beach and a gorgeous dinner. We also stayed the night at the resort. I’ve got pics.

We went for a walk along a boardwalk and I was busy pointing out all the sites next minute I turn around he is sitting on the ledge and has the ring box open and asks me to marry him. I had tears streaming down my face of course lol wouldn’t let me put it on until we were off the boardwalk because there were holes in the boardwalk and water underneath lol

mine proposed at an outdoor Christmas market while we were sitting next to a fire with hot wine and a bit of snow!
unfortunately the minute he got down on one knee and began to speak some sort of animals – I think they were rams? (we hadnt noticed because it was dark) – started making excessive noise andi just couldn’t stop laughing.

We went out a fancy restaurant in the same plaza/complex as the restaurant that we our first date. We were walking around after dinner and he brought me to the exact spot we had our first kiss. Then he got down on one knee and proposed. It was super sweet and thoughtful of him. Oh yeah, and people cheered for us when I said yes!

In his car after trying to get me to let him walk me to my door and me telling him, “No, no, it’s okay. It’s just right there and the dogs will hear you and they’ll go crazy and my migraine can’t handle it and it’s almost midnight and my neighbors will kill me.”
So he said, “I have something for you. Close your eyes.”
I’ve since asked him what he was planning to do if I’d let him come up to the door, or into my apartment. He said, “I have no idea. I had nothing planned out. But it didn’t matter because you kept shooting down my chivalry.”
I’d like think I’m not as exceptionally dense as this story makes me seem. But I probably am. I had absolutely no clue that he was planning to propose. When I opened my eyes, it took me nearly five minutes to grind my brain back into action.
