This is my first post here ever! Me and my fiancé have been together for 7 years on March 3rd and been living together for the past 5 years. He is 31 and I am 24.
He isnt a very talkative person, he rarely share his thoughts about things. I was however sure that he wouldn’t want to get married, that he thought that marriage is just a stupid piece of paper and a waste of money! And I settled for that many years ago, and never thought of it again. I realize today that he never acctually said those things, but it is what I thought he felt about it.
I had just come home from work on valentine’s day when he came to me with three envelopes. He said that I could pick only one. So I did, and when I opened it there was a paper with a “happy valentine’s day” picture with lots of hearts and then following the text “Sadly this is the wrong envelope, but if you give me a kiss I’ll give you another chance”. So obviously I kissed him and picked another envelope!
This time I chose the right one, which contained a long personal letter, which explained his love for me, answered my questions regarding having children and a poem. While I was reading this with my heart pounding, he put down a heart shaped pink box next to me. In there I found a beautiful gold ring with three small diamonds. It was such a shock for me and it might not be the romantic dinner with champagne that ends with the guy on his knee, but for me it was perfect! He did it in his own special way and I will remember it forever. ♡

Awww! Congratulations! That is a very sweet story 🙂 It is so nice that he was able to do it in his own loving way, not doing it just because society says he needs to do it in a public place or whatever.

Thanks everyone! Looking forward to spending a lot of time on these forums! 🙂
We want to get married as soon as possible, but we recently moved to my home country and my fiancé hasn’t found a job yet, but as soon as he does I’ll start making plans! I’m hoping to go dress shopping in Paris or London! Right now I’m kind of into the Disney Bridal dresses! 🙂

We acctually met in an online game when I was 16 and he was 23. We were both part of a big group of players, and we never really spoke much the first months, but about 6 months later we connected and 2 months after that he came to visit me. At that time I had turned 17 and he 24! It sounds like a huge age difference now that I think back at it, but it has never been a problem and I’ve never been uncomfortable with it. 🙂
