    I want intimate. He wants restraunt or somewhere like that, but he knows that I don’t want a bunch of people around. I pretty much just said ok, but nothing huge like a sports game or such. I honestly don’t think I’ll care as much about how he does it, and just that he does it. I am an impatient waiting bee.

    I don’t care, I just want him. Except, and I told him, that I don’t want him to put my ring in any sort of food or drink, I don’t want it to be all sticky

    @GiantJelly  I knew I didn’t want a formal proposal, one-knee down. I also didn’t want it to be in a public place or in front of our families (but I don’t think Fiance would have done that, he’s very shy). Overall I was simply hoping it would be us two, having a heartfelt discussion about the future and our projects together as a couple, and it’s exactly how it happened. 🙂

    I told Fiance the one thing I did NOT want was a public proposal. Other than that, it didn’t really matter to me. Fiance happily obliged and proposed while we were on a little weekend vacation in Vermont. It was romantic and intimate and not at all over the top, which was perfect for us. I loved being able to spend the entire long weekend with him in our little engagement bubble before heading back to the real world.

    @GiantJelly  I wanted it private, just me and him, absolutely nothing even resembling a flash mob, no photographer, etc. That’s what I got! He was gonna propose on a hike but then we couldn’t find the trail entrance and he pulled his car over and proposed. It was honestly perfect and just a side note, my parents who have been married for 25 years and my grandparents who have been married for 50 years got engaged in cars. I think it’s a good sign lol 🙂

    As long as theres a ring and no ones on the toilet, I’m good to go.

    haha no but seriously… Im not a shy person so a crowd would be fine and private would be great too – I just want it to happen!

    @GiantJelly  I wanted a private proposal.  Tried to insist on it in fact.  Fiance basically was like “too bad, it’s not your day – the wedding will be your day”.

    He ended up doing a scavenger hunt all over DC and Northern VA where we live, with a friend at each stop with another clue, culminating in a proposal at one of our favorite restaurants with everyone inside the restaurant who had assisted throughout the day.  The actual proposal was, thankfully, just us (and the photographer he had hired to follow me all day, though I didn’t know about that at the time).

    I loved it, because he was so excited and proud of what he had put together.

    I got an awesome proposal with close family (only 4 people) in a park that we always spend time in. He did it right near the waterfall so there was a few people there and they clapped when I said yes. It was perfect!

    @SummerOfLove  My parents got engaged in a car, too! They got lost, got into a fight and pulled over to read the map when my dad popped the question. 32 years later, they’re still going strong, so I think you’re onto something.

    @GiantJelly  FI and I are both pretty private and neither one of us really love being the center of attention.  He proposed to me privately on the top deck of a dinner cruise looking at the Manhattan Skyline…it was perfect for both of us.  He told me later that he thought about proposing in front of everyone…and also proposing in Central Park on one of the brides…but decided a proposal with just the two of us was more US.  And it was absolutely perfect <3
