    I was too shocked to cry. In fact I was so shocked I almost forgot to say yes, I just grabbed him and made him give me a hug haha. It’s so weird because we had had the marriage talk lots of times and I knew he was going to propose relatively soon but I was still REALLY shocked!!

    I cried. Then I felt like I was in movies and the things that happened to us including the storm we went through during our relationship flashed back. I am seeing my future and the father of my children in front of me.

    I got engaged this weekend and even though I knew it would be happening soon I burst into tears, hugged him, he had to remind me to look at the ring. I burst into tears a couple more times and said “I can’t believed you proposed to me whilst I am wearing this fucking knobby bobble hat!” lol

    clipclop1023 :  I was shocked and cried for ten minutes before saying yes.  He then went to get his great grandmother’s opal ring and I cried for another ten minutes.  No idea he was planning on proposing.  When he was first talking he was so serious I thought he was breaking up with me!!!

    londonbeeee :  I’ve been with my SO 10.5yrs. Apparently proposal is happenning this weekend so I already know the when. I don’t know the actual details of what’s happenning though. Who knows. He might not even propose even though he says he will. 

    I’m not quite answering your Q as it hasn’t happenned yet. But because I’ve been waiting for so long, I think I’m going to be underwhelmed and just shrug my shoulders and answer with a “ye OK”

    Considering our past history, it’s apparently finally happenning. So now I’m still unsure if he’s going to propose even though he says he will. So I’m a bit disappointed with how it’s eventually turning out to be. Might change in the moment. But currently we’re in that place where we’re waiting for the weekend to come around and ye, make things official so we can move on and start planning. 

    I just wish it was different you know. Without me knowing. I really wanted the proposal to come from left field. Oh well. Nevermind. It is what it is I guess. Such is life.
