@hannabells:  Honestly, I think it’s really sad when women dwell on how they were proposed to!

My proposal was similar to yours. We purchased the ring together, and then out of the blue, no planning, he asked me in our living room. I wasn’t even paying attention at first because I was trying to get directions to our plans for the day. 

He is not romantic, not the type to plan things out, especially like a extravagant proposal. I knew that when we bought the ring together. Would I like a better story to tell, sure. But I wouldn’t change that moment for anything, because it was very true to who we are, and who we are as a couple. 

In other words, if you love him for him, and he proposed they way HE felt the most comfortable, then get over the fact that you don’t have some crazy story to tell and accept that you were able to marry him.

I agree with PPs, time to let it go and move on. You got the wedding of your dreams, you picked out your ring (so he couldnt screw THAT up), and you are married to your friend. 🙂

If it helps, my proposal was really low-key and at home as well. On the couch. Fiance had been hyping up how he was going to do something huge and romantic and omg! And then he got deployed from July 4 to Christmas and that went out the window. He was apparently tired of waiting to ask me anymore and couldn’t make his big plan work, so he just took me to dinner and after I put on my nightly tea once we were back home, I sat down on the couch next to him and BAM! Ring. He did a lot of little things to make it “us” but I was initially surprised at the lack of hugeness that he had been dangling in my face for 8 months, lol. Truthfully, though, all the little things he did do and the fact that it was true to us and really intimate is something I really like now. 🙂

 Focus on the good things. It could be a lot worse.
