At first I was trying to figure out why Fiance did it where he did. It was out in the desert on a little hill with a great view of the valley but it didn’t make sense to me until one night we were talking and he said something about how that spot is special because we went there one night after date night and had a make out session and it was really intense. One of those “we feel like teenagers” moments 🙂 and he said he knew he loved me then. I felt bad for not feeling like it was special but it was special to him and now knowing WHY he did it there, I wouldn’t have it any other place or any other way. I just wish he would have told me WHY during the proposal, then it would have been perfect but still, he did a good job. Now we drive by there all the time and we both get butterflies. We go at night and see the city lights. In the end I love our proposal story.

@BrideofGroomzilla: We just decided to get married. It was shmeh and I don’t think DH realized I still wanted him to ask me. (I don’t know why, I was pretty clear about it). I don’t lie about it – I just say we mutually decided. If it helps, one of my BFFs is pretty much the same story.
DH does feel bad about it to this day. And I do have a bit of a ping when I watch a proposal in the movies. Just because I always thought I’d have that and I didn’t.
But I’m married! To the love of my life and we have a really happy marriage! So whatever, it’s not a huge deal.

We got engaged at our house too! I wasn’t supposed to be home and he wanted to make it romantic for when I got home but it didn’t work out that way! When he got down on one knee and even when he had the ring out, I didn’t believe him. It took me a few minutes to say yes. I told him to stop kidding around. lol It was perfect for us 🙂

I love my proposal story, standard walk to a nice park, nothing special, get’s down on one knee and say “there is no perfect time, perfect place or perfect person…. oh oops, I mean…..”
It made me giggle so much and delighted in telling people about the mess up. After a few recountings of the story, he told me it embarrased him so I’ve now stopped telling people the real story, but I find it cute.
There is a post today by a guy who sweated for ages about the proposal then proposed at home and the Fiance is dissapointed which is sad. Ypu should read it, it gives a very good perspective on how stressful proposing is for the guy.

My BF, or rather, my Fiance, just asked me yesterday! I woke up because he was pulling me next to him, like he does every morning, he said good morning, I mumbled good morning. He was talking about something, I really don’t remember what. He said “if you’re not careful I’ll divorce you for that” (we’ve been together for over 3 years and living together for about a year and a half).. I laughed and said you can’t divorce me….with that he said “then will you marry me”. He had this serious look on his face. I said “what?” He said it again..,”will you marry me, even though I don’t have a ring?”. I asked him if he was serious, he said yes. I said “you’re really serious?” he said yes, so I kissed him and said “yes!” and then had him ask me again! LOL. BUT since he didn’t have a ring he wants me to keep it a secret until we go pick one out. I asked him why he asked me right then if I couldn’t tell anyone…. he said he just had to. He felt it and he had to! I couldn’t care less if I had a ring, but it matters to him. Just wanted to share.

I did, but it fit us perfectly! When he originally asked there wasn’t even a ring. It still came out of the blue and I still love it. When we picked up the ring from the jewellers he wouldn’t let me wear it until we got into the car and he pulled out this amazing letter that said everything he was feeling about marrying me, he just couldn’t say it when he originally asked. It was amazing and perfect and I wouldn’t change anything about it.

I got proposed to on a thursday, my day off. On wednesday night I had been stung by a wasp and I’m allergic to bees and wasps but didn’t have an epipen so my arm was extremely red and swollen and I took some benadryll and it knocked me out. I woke up when he came home and he kneeled beside the bed and I stroked his hair while he told me about his day and looked up at me and went I have 2 questions for you. Do you love me. I said yes. He said will you marry me? I said yes and then sat there trying to figure out if that really happened until he got this big cheesy grin on his face. So red puffy arm, sweatpants and ratty t shirt, half asleep, a big ole mess. He was covered in grease (he’s a mechanic) and no ring ( we picked it out together later) but it was sweet and if hell propose to me at my worst then he must love me haha especially since he couldn’t wait til he got a ring to do it (he was too anxious to wait for one to be sized haha)

My Fiance had this thing planned…we were going out to dinner and he was going to ask me in front of everyone. (His family)
Well…while we were getting ready we got into an argument, a big one, and he’s such a jerk that he pulled out the ring and yelled at me about how he was going to propose at dinner and I ruined it all. I guess I had really pissed him off!
Then he yelled some more about how if I didn’t accept him now, I could hop on the plane and go home alone (we were visiting his home state)…or I could marry him and be stuck with him forever and take him as is, mistakes and all!
He was being a real jerk and I was crying my eyes out…I was so upset that we were fighting (it’s so frickin stressful to be around his family) and I was so MAD that I didn’t get a proposal that I deserved! But I said yes and the rest of the day was one of the happiest days of my life!
I am just so glad he asked me in his old room…it’s where we fell in love and spent so much time together. Also, I am SO shy and introverted that the thought of being asked to marry him in front of HIS family was so disconcerting to me…if I were to choose a crowd it would be MY family!!! So, I’m glad it all happened in private…that’s how I want my life to be, private.

Ours was defiantly intimate. It was in our crappy old car. It was our anaversary and we’d driven out to a remote lodge to have lunch. On the way into town it was pouring rain, like bunketing down.. He drive up to a lookout, had a cute smile, said some sweet things and put the ring on my finger. Its not an amazing story, but I wouldn’t change it for anything 🙂

I had a proposal at home right when I stepped out of the shower and wrapped the towel around me. Our dog walked in and had a ribbon tied around her neck with the ring on it. It was sweet : ) and special!

I’m in the laying in bed camp. He works out of town a lot and was in a town where we have done mutual friends. A preacher friend of his asked when we were getting married and we both were like deer in the head lights. Lol. After dinner, we went back to the hotel for me to rest a bit before the ride home. I was laying there and he started talking about “when we get married this ” and “our wedding that” and I was like “uh since when are we getting married? I know I haven’t been asked” (teasing) iI think I threw a sock or something. He got allserious and asked if it were something I’d want. Of course. Then he asked with my full name but was so nervous hee stumbled over my middle name. And the rest is history. When he got back in town we picked a ring and now we are just a few months out from the wedding!

That is the sweetest thing, I love your story!
And now here I am feeding the proposal story frenzy by commenting on “a story” but the thing is: your Fiance was so sincere and his words so heartfelt, and your joy so obvious–it’s just nice!

We had an at-home proposal as well. It was the end of a disaster weekend.
Friday we had tix to the Kennedy Center, and I was SURE he was going to propose on the terrace. I had my hair done, dressed up, we went to a nice dinner with friends…got to KenCen….and the terrace was closed for a special event. We went to the show…and the terrace was opened after. So we all went out…nothing.
I tried to pretend I wasn’t upset…Saturday he went to the store and got me roses, took me to see a movie I wanted to see…took me to a casual dinner…still nothing.
By Sunday I was just grumps. It was Super Bowl Sunday, our party was called off, and he was talking about putting a deposit on our venue (already chosen). I snapped – “I’m not giving anyone a dime until something happens.”
We were not speaking for several hours. He finally went to the store for beer and offered to get me wine. Came home, asked if I wanted some. I said no. He came over to the couch where I was sitting and was nervous, knelt down, and said…something…I don’t even remember! We were both crying. He was holding the ring out and I remember saying “You have to ask!” So he did…and we were engaged! It was a mess…and he HAD planned on the Kennedy Center like I thought…but the world worked against us.

I had a terrible proposal. It took me a long time to forgive my husband for it because I thought it should have been a special moment. He makes up for it by being a very romantic and attentive hubby.
