I enjoy proposal stories, but really just the highlights. So I thought making them super quick could be a fun thread!
So 140 characters or less, and if you want you can include ONE pic. I’ll start!
We were in Golden Gate Park, he got down on one knee, I said yes, we kissed, and then a Segway tour rolled past.

In the car.
While running errands.
He asked. (he couldn’t hold it in any longer)
I said yes.
Went home and unpacked groceries.

Sunday afteroon, extremely hot outside. I don’t do well in the heat. We stop under a tree for some shade. I turn around and don’t see him. I assume he’s fallen over due to advanced age and bad knees. I look down and see him on one knee with a ring. I like the ring. I say yes.

RedHeadKel: Thanks! It was a stand-in so I could pick out my engagement ring after the fact, but I still have it and love it 🙂
Great stories everyone, keep them coming!

Sitting on couch, he says we could save money and use my mom’s rings when time comes. I agree. He says “Or we could just use this one”. Proposes. I ask if he’s crazy and say yes.
I didn’t count spaces for characters for the record lol

He cooked a five course dinner in the middle of summer and we ate it in bed with the AC blasting. He got on one knee, held the box upside down, and proposed. We cried and kissed in a heap on the floor.
