My boyfriend and I went to the Spaghetti warehouse with my parents. On the menu, there was a vintage cartoon picture where the man asks “Will you marry me?” The woman looks deepy into his eyes and says “Not until you take me to the Spaghetti Warehouse!”
My boyfriend pointed to it before dinner. He pointed specifically to the “Will you marry me?” insert. I knew it wasn’t the real deal (I have an inkling he would do it more romantically and well into 2014), but I couldn’t help but laugh. If I had been drunk, there might have been tears and confusion and an awkward situation in front of my family..
Anyone else been in similar situations? AHAHAH

@fainavach1992: haha this is cute. It’s nice when we have fun waiting moments
Yes! I know my story is incredibly silly cos I 100% knew he didn’t have a ring at the time this happened. But we had just had an incredibly romantic dinner and were walking along the esplanade when he just stopped in his tracks and got down on one knee and I was gasping and just got sooo excited. And then he started tying his shoe, got up and we walked off…… I told him about it a while after and we both still laugh so much about it

Haha, I think we all have moments like this. Last year, after a romantic walk on the beach, my boyfriend said “Wait a minute” before I got off the beach. I turned as he was getting onto one knee…to tie his shoelace. I think my face turned bright red…haha. And he was totally oblivious :]

@fainavach1992: this summer we had a super romantic weekend for his high school reunion. After the fancy dinner/dance he decided we should go to our special spot on the beach. We were talking a lot about our families and the future. All of a sudden I panicked and said “You know I want you to ask my dad first,right?” He didn’t. For weeks I worried he had planned to propose that night! He hadn’t, though, and a few months later he bought a ring, asked dad and proposed in that same spot!

@fainavach1992: Okay well right now I’m just impressed you live somewhere that has a restaurant called Spaghetti Warehouse! That is too funny! I’m glad you didn’t really think fall for it!

Yes!!! I posted one not too long ago. SO took me out on the most romantic date I’ve ever been on. We got really dressed up and went to dinner at the nicest steakhouse downtown and the ballet. Both of those things I thought I would never do with him! When we got home he was yelling for me to go to him. When I got there he started digging around in a laundry basket. My heart stopped because I thought he might have hidden the ring box at the bottom. Then he pulled out a pair of my socks and proudly exclaimed: Look I washed these for you! All I could do was laugh and walk away. I still don’t think he knows what was going through my mind.

@ceemarie7: Omg, that’s too funny. What a goon.
One time Darling Husband and I were snowmobiling on trails. He suddenly pulled off the trail and looked all nervous and antsy. I thought, “This is it” so I put the prettiest simper I could muster on my face and discreetly wiped my dripping nose. I even pulled the glove off my left hand. Then Darling Husband said he had “swamp ass” aka was sweaty and had to pull over to air out. He did some squats and got back on his snowmobile and off we went lol.

At christmas time my Darling Husband (who I knew had the ring) waited until all the gifts were opened and then grabbed me and told me he loved me. Then he said there was one gift we forgot. He told me to go check my stocking, I did (basically jumping up and down) and it was something random. Then after dinner he said he had one more gift. He went and got it, again not my ring. I could have killed him. He finally gave it to me about a week later. Christmas was hard that year!!

I havent been in that situation, I always wondered if anyone ever got the mix up from the Taco Bel mild sauce pack that had “will you marry me?” They discontinued that saying.
I always figured some guy sued them over it after his Girlfriend proclaimed “YES! Yes, i will!” and he is looking all confusd eating his taco… hahha

hahah yup! i got a watch as a gift and it was wrapped and opening the box i thought it’d be a ring [cue the heart pounding] and it was a watch. the size of the box really threw me off! i laughed it off and ended up being proposed to a week later. 🙂
