No worries. We all have our bad days; I’m glad you can look back on it with some perspective.

I had read your post. it sounded like your DH tried & nothing worked out in his plans. He was so excited to ask you that he just did. Just by reading it I can tell he’s a man that loves his woman very much 🙂

@OnceUponATime:  I didn’t read it but don’t worry! We have all been there and sometimes we just let things get away from us!

Dont feel bad I posted something similar and people got sooo nasty that i also deleted my post. I also wasnt too blow away with my proposal and wanted to vent but some ladies acted as if i were the devil or said i was gonna leave SO becaue i didnt like his proposal… but i did learn that a lot of other ladies didnt get the proposal they wanted and moved on so thats what i did. Best of luck to you and congrats on your enaggment.

@OnceUponATime:  I read it and I share your feelings: Love our men, love that we get to marry them, just a teensy bit sad that there wasn’t a huge gesture. My FI didn’t do anything special, we were just chillin’ on the bed and I knew it was going to happen that day (he had already told me) and I knew exactly what the ring would look like (he had me pick it out), so there was negative surprise factor. But his words were heartfelt and I felt so happy that it had finally happened!

I understand where you were coming from and I could tell from your responses in that post that you wished you could’ve eaten the words you said when you described it as shitty. I knew that you knew that was inaccurate. I didn’t comment because of that. But I’ll comment here to give you (((HUGS))) ’cause like PPs have said, we all have bad days 🙂

@OnceUponATime:  haha exactly! you only hear about the extremly romantic and over the top proposals no1 ever talks about the dissappointing ones. Guess no1 shares those stories for a reason : /

Don’t sweat it hon!

The way my parents describe it I don’t think my father ever proposed, they talked about getting married and at some point just decided to.  Mom doesn’t have an engagement ring, just her wedding band.  35 years later and still going strong 🙂  They also broke up twice before getting engaged.  I love telling people about that, movies (and boards like these to some extent) make it look like a relationship has to be this amazingly romantic glossy perfect thing.  I choose the substance over the style any day.  Some people have both I suppose but I’ll take my farting video-game-playing mall-hating lazy-on-weekends man over Ryan Gosling in the Notebook any day.

But I’m glad I don’t have to choose because that would be a very difficult call to make 😉
