Does it help you at all to know that I always thought of how sweet it’d be to be proposed to in bed? It seems special to me to be able to make such a simple moment romantic.

Don’t be too hard on yourself.  I think we often want what we don’t have.  I love the way my proposal story went, but a little part of me wishes there was a little more surprise to it.  And I admit there was a moment when I thought, “Really?  This is how this is going to go?”  In the end, I think we get the proposal that is the most “us.”

See, I disagree. I’m not a fan of those planned out, over-the-top proposals. I think guys do them just so there’s a story behind the proposal. I kind of think the spur of the moment ones are sweeter, because it happened organically so you know it is really genuine.

I think that women always envy other people’s proposals. I envied a friend whose Fiance did it during a trip to NYC in central park on a carriage ride… she envied my proposal which was on a random Monday night in front of the kitchen sink (and I had to tell him to get down on his knee!)

As for rings, I’m sure that yours is lovely! If you’d like a larger one, remember that you can always buy a larger one in the future… and get that baby cleaned! If you haven’t taken it to a jeweler to clean it, head over today 🙂 Mine get sooo dirty sooo fast.

If it makes you feel any better, my friend got proposed to in the middle of a fight (about when they would get engaged), he basically threw the ring box at her and went to sleep. She would kill for your proposal story!!

And by the way, when Fiance got down on one knee I was mortified for some reason and literally yanked him up by his sleeve. No clue why! Now on the rare occasion that I take my ring off for something, Fiance always makes a big show of getting down on his knee to put it back on, just to make fun of me.

I got engaged while watching TV. I was flipping channels and one of the channels I flipped by had a wedding show, my fiance was just like “so, do you want to get married?” and I said “sure!”.  And that was that!  I didn’t have my ring until a couple weeks later either (he let me pick it out and then we had to wait for it to come in.)
I actually think it’s a funnier story to tell people how he was just randomly like “uhh… wanna get married?” than it would be to tell the generic “we went to a nice restuarant and he proposed” (no offense to the girls that got that type of proposal)

If your ring “lost it’s shine after a month”, it’s dirty. Go pick up some jewelry cleaner, it’s like $5 at Walmart in a red container. It will sparkle again!

I know what you mean. Mine wasn’t too elaborate either and I was hot, sweaty, cranky, and not in the mood to be touched. I was like “where’s the candlelight? The romance? The starlit sky? The bended knee?” Hehe. I just have to chuckle about it now.
