I got engaged last night (after almost six years)!!! I just can’t stop smiling. Here is our engagement story: My boyfriend (now fiance) was TOTALLY trying to throw me off from when he was going to actually propose lol. He asked me to dinner at a really nice restaurant and I thought maybe it would happen there but it may just be a ploy to distract me. Anyways, we both dressed up nice for the dinner. The restaurant was in the city where we met and was the location of our second date.
I noticed during the dinner he was a little nervous which is so unlike him. He kept telling me he loved me during the dinner and after we finished eating the delicious meal, he looked into my eyes and said, “I knew from the moment I saw you that you were special. I’ve known for so long that you are the one I want to spend the rest of my life with.” Then he kissed me and said, “i have a surprise for you” and he smiled.
He said, “stay right there” and then he got down on one knee and said “Will you make me the happiest man alive? Will you marry me?” I burst into tears of joy (which I’ve never done before in my life) and could barely say yes but I did. Then he started to put the ring on the wrong finger accidentally and we both started laughing and we kept kissing.
About five minutes later, the server came by and said, “OMG I saw it from a distance and it made ME cry! Congratulations!” and then she gave us two glass of champagne and said they were from the couple behind us. That couple came over said, “11 years ago to this day, we got engaged in this exact spot. We have been married for 10 years and couldn’t be happier. We wish you a lifetime of happiness and who knows, maybe we will see each other here again next year!” I was SO emotional when they said all that, I was blubbering tears of joy.
I can’t stop smiling even today and looking at the ring. Here are a few pictures!
