I wanted to hear about people’s funny/romantic/awkward proposals! I fondly look back on the day my fiance popped the question:
We were both at our alma mater (Loyola University Chicago) for a work event on a cold and windy February evening. Once the event got out my fiance insisted on walking along the lake front back to our car. I found this odd because there were some people from the event who needed help navigating campus back to the parking tower. When I offered to walk them back my fiance gave them some rushed directions and insisted we walk along the lake. The whole walk he was trying to be nolstagic about our time on campus meanwhile I said some of the following, “This belt is giving me gas”, “I have to poo”, “I’m so effing hungry”, “I wore the wrong shoes for this weather” and other such romantic phrases. Ultimately he stopped under a beautful archway and told me he needed to tie his shoe. I said, “You do you man, I’m cold and walking to the car” and continue walking away from him. he tells me to stop, i see him on his knee, and begin talking a mile a minute asking him if he’s proposing, did he ask my parents, is this a proposal, are we getting married, is he proposing even after I told him I had gas? He responded “I’m trying to” and the rest is history! It still makes me laugh to this day what a brat I was but also how lucky I am to have someone how loves me even when I’m not at my best.
