- Wedding: June 2014
I found this website a couple weeks ago while dreaming about getting engaged. Everyone seems so nice, supportive and encouraging that now that I am engaged I couldn’t wait to become a part of this community!
I have been with my SO for four and a half years, and in May we bought a house together. It is a new house and so it won’t be ready until May of 2013. We knew that we were committed to eachother when we bought the house, and didn’t feel the pressure to get engaged. He also told me that because we had bought the house, an engagement was a far way away.
Last night he called me on my way home from work and I told him I was driving past our new house to see the progress (they have just put up the first floor!). He said to have fun and he would talk to me later as he had just gotten home (he lives 45 minutes away currently). When I pulled up to the house I noticed another car following me, I was scared and didn’t want to get out of my car because it was a dark and secluded construction site. To my surprise it was my SO that got out of the mystery car! He said that he had to drop off some things to my dad, and that’s why he was around. He said we should go inside our “house” to look at the progress. We get inside and start talking when he gets down on one knee in the middle of what will eventually be our front hall and asks me to marry him! I was so surprised, I had no idea that he would propose any time soon.. let alone a dark thursday night!
He had just picked up the ring and was on his way home when he called me. When I told him I was going to our house, he pulled a U-turn because he decided he couldn’t wait a second longer.
It was so perfect because it was spontaneous (he was still covered in drywall mud from his day at work!) and full of love. I couldn’t be happier to be engaged.
Thanks for reading my story – sorry if it was long, but I’m just so happy I couldn’t wait to share it with anyone that will listen!
