How did your man propose?

Brandy gave me the idea...;)

How did your man propose? Or if you're single or unproposed to yet, what's your dream proposal? And if you're a guy, how did you propose? And if you're a girl who proposed, how did you do it? lol Get the idea? :D

I'm glad I could inspire someone! :thumbs up hehe

Here's my story expanded. I met my honey when I was 15, we started dating when I was 16. He was 22. :eek: I know I know. My mom actually ENCOURAGED the relationship ya'll. Anyway, we had a huge ice storm the week of Valentine's. We got over 6 inches of pure ice, power was out for at least a week etc... So honey finally got up in the boonies where I lived and took me back to his place. I was in 11th grade, not yet 17. Anyway, we had talked a lot about marriage and stuff and knew we had met our soulmate. :cloud9: So I get to his house and he had bought me this doll and on it was a silver necklace. On the necklace was the keys to his house which were silver too. So I oooed and aaaaahed over this doll totally perplexed as to why I was getting the keys and the doll, but hey, I rolled with it right? Anyway, he said, look closer. That's when I saw he had put the ring on the key ring. My ring is white gold/diamond so it blended in perfectly with all that silver. :o Long story short I said yes. Needless to say my mom was totally shocked and against it. lol I told her she should not have encouraged the relationship to start with if she didnt like it.

In the end we wound up eloping too, but that's a story for another day. Somebody else's turn! (For the record, I did graduate HS and waited till I was 18 to get married)

We were visiting his sister and BIL in Dublin. On our last day there we were walking through St. Stephen's Green (Dublin's "Central Park"), we had found a small area where they do Shakespeare in the park, kinda tucked away from everything, he pretended to search for the camera in his bag and came out with the ring, got down on one knee and asked the question. I started to cry, then I noticed a drunk guy passed out on a big rock on the other side of a bush across from us, we took an arm-length photo to commemorate the moment then went to dinner with his sis and BIL. It was a great way to end the best vacation of my life.

I always said that there would be no way my man could propose to me and catch me off guard and make me cry, but Brandy, you made me think of the one way.:D It's not about where, it's when- if my man proposed in the middle of a huge snowstorm, that might get me.:D (If we ever have a huge snowstorm and he is actually prepared lol)

I think I forgot to mention that the power had been out for quite a few days, so I hadn't had a shower and had dirty hair and was probably quite rank. lol We lived in a house with a well, so no water. At his house he had water, so afterwards he washed my hair for me with ice cold water. But hey, it was clean afterwards!! :D

As I recall, it was something romantic like: Hey, I bought the marriage license. Should I make the appointment with the Justice of the Peace for Thursday? :p We actually had to put it off a day or two since we were both new in town and had to rustle up some witnesses from amongst hubby's coworkers...

ooooooo, I love these stories!!

Nic is not very romantic...ever. So his romantic proposal came as quite a shock!

We go to Old Orchard Beach every summer, I love it there (I used to go with my family when I was a kid) so he takes me to make me happy. So this summer we're in Old Orchard, and we went out for supper. After supper we decided to go sit on the beach (this is nothing unusual, I try to get as much beach time as I can while I'm there). But it was a very strange evening. There were NO WAVES whatsoever, something I had never seen. AND it was a full moon. So here we are walking along and I mention to Nic what an incredibly romantic evening it is, and as I look up at the stars I see a shooting star. AMAZING, right? So I'm staring up at the sky telling Nic 'OMG, did YOU SEE THAT??' and I look down and he's on one knee in the sand.

VERY romantic.

It was when we were living in Ottawa, the day before the Christmas holidays, and I was heading back to my parents the next day to spend Christmas apart :sad:
We went out to our favorite restaurant, and we were all dressed up; I think it was the coldest night of the year! Anyway, he suggested driving by the lights at Parliament Hill on our way home, which I LOVE. So, when he went to park the car, I was complaining (about my shoes mostly- I didn't want to walk in the cold in shoes and a skirt!) but he convinced me to go. When we got to the eternal fire at the Hill, he got down on one knee and proposed. He did say a speech but I don't remember it! I was so concerned that it was so freakin cold and he was there on his knee in the snow! It was very romantic however. I was expecting it, but not right then and there.

My hubby and I were bored one night, got into the car and started driving to ottawa, why something to do we wanted coffee so why not there, as we were driving I saw a shooting star I made a wish, I wanted to marry him but I would not ask, about 1/2 hour later before we got to the coffe shop he ask me to marry him (in the car while he was driving he is not that romantic) too funny. of course i said yes, but could not hug him or anything just had to sit there in the car until we stopped the car. when i came home and told my parents my mum was not that happy, but i sure was. that was 25 years ago

I had plans w/ some friends to spend the afternoon at an outdoor festival one saturday, when my bf tells me he made dinner reservations for us, and we HAD to leave at 7pm. I was annoyed. I had planned on spending the afternoon w/ some girlfriends, and he knew that ahead of time! I cut my afternoon short, came home, and asked what type of place it was so I would know what to wear.

My man said "no jeans, it's dressy". now I'm just pissed off. Not only did I have to cut my afternoon short, but now I had to get dressed up. GRRRRRRR.

I manage to calm down enough to get dressed up nice, and we go to the restaurant. a fancy gourmet place that we go on special occassions. My guy said it was to celebrate our 6yrs together. We drank a bottle of wine, had a fabulous dinner, and before dessert, I made a little toast.... "To us honey. 6 yrs. are we going to beat the record?" (little inside joke - our group of friends seem to be gf/bf for YEARS before getting married, and the record to break was like 8 yrs)

my bf replied... "I hope not." and he held out THE ring, told me how much he loves me, and asked me to be his wife.

The waitress found out, told the chef, and he wrote "congratulations" in chocolate sauce across our cheesecake plate!

It's was a proposal I saw somewhere, and i want my proposal to be along the same line.

A guy took his girlfriend to take santa pictures at the mall, when they were both sitting on Santa's lap and santa asked him what he wanted for christmas, he pulled out the ring and said he wanted his gf to give him her hand in marriage, she was soooo shocked, AND they got a picture of her surprise so that they can a picture of that moment for the rest of their lives. That's sweet, I'd love to have a picture of that for the rest of my life.:cloud9:

Alright, I have the all-time romantic proposal. I was sitting on the floor working on my laptop that was sitting on the coffee table in front of the television when he comes over and says "here" and hands me the ring and starts to walk off. I say, "Are you going to at least put it on my finger?" He says, I guess and puts it on. I look at him and say "it's about time" and we both chuckled and went on with our night.





















(How horrible is that? :laughing: I made the comment to him the next day he could have at least took me to the zoo and proposed in front of the monkeys and his reaction? "Hey, that would have been a good idea." :frustrated: )

We were on the beach in Dahab, South Sinai, we had just gotten off an eight hour bus trip, we were waiting for our hotel room and I asked for a piece of gum because I hadn't brushed my teeth yet and felt gross, he said he had the last piece in his mouth and asked if I wanted it, I said "gross, no", so then our drinks came and after I had a sip he asked me for a big kiss and there was something weird. I pulled back really fast because I didn't know what it was, I thought he was trying to give me the gum. He was sitting there with a big grin on his face and a ring sticking out between his lips. :cloud9:

Then we were brought our breakfast (the waiter was a friend of his) and our food was heart shaped, it was cute.

... Some of your men are just pitiful. They're lucky you love them! LOL!

My worst proposal came from one of my best friends. He was drunk and I can't even remember how it happened. I said something, or did something, and he went off about how stupid my ex was to not realize what he had and blah blah blah (he realized what he had after I broke it off, but by then it was too late as he NEVER put me first). Anyway, the next thing I knew he was kissing me (he wasn't THAT drunk, and we had dated in the past, so it wasn't a big deal), and he just pulled back and said "Marry me". When I was about to laugh, he said "No, really. Marry me. I love you." My reply? "I love you to. NO!"

We laughed it off and he occasionally still asks me from time to time. I still say no. He still laughs...

Boys are silly. :p

Byrd

LOL My first proposal came in grade 6. This guy kept proposing and I kept saying "gross, no" and it got really, really annoying. My friends started calling him my husband. The teacher gave out these special award certificates at the end of the year and mine said that I was awarded "for turning down Craig's marriage proposals". It was the worst year of my life. We didn't speak again until I was done high school (I graduated after grade 12, most of my friends stayed for OAC) and I was visiting my friends in their art class and he was there, we got to talking and discovered how much we really did have in common, too late though, he moved to Moose Jaw shortly after. All my old friends thought it would be hilarious if we really had gotten together and gotten married.... guess we'll never know.

Mine is pretty pathetic. We had been looking for a place to live for a bit. A friend of mine had given me a flyer she found in a newspaper for a new subdivision going up in Courtice. We spent a Sunday looking at a couple of apartments that were gross and knew there was no way we were going to live in them. We drove East to look at the places in the flyer and ended up buying one. When we went back to our separate houses that night, he called me up and said "I suppose we should get married now." and I said "ya I guess." and here we are.

Well, being that I'm not married, I have a couple dream proposals.

First would be at a Leafs game... posted up on the boards. You when they post a message that everyone can see? That would be sooo cool.

Second would be with M&M's. You know how you can order custom M&M's with messages of your own? I love M&M's. I collect M&M figurines. I would love it if my man gave me a bag of M&M's that said "will you" and "marry me".... (you can only have like 2 word per M&M)

I would also like to be proposed to in front of family and/or friends instead of in private. Dunno why, just think it would be better.

Yeah, but if someone is proposing, the price of M&M's is probably a lot lower than a ring.

I forgot the MOST important part. My man must give me a Claddagh Ring. In Irish tradition (my father is Irish) the man gives a claddagh to his chosen girl as an engagement ring and she wears it on her right hand ring finger with the crown facing in, indicating she is engaged. When you get married, you switch the ring to the left hand ring finger with the crown out, indicating you are married. This is the claddagh (http://www.claddagh-house.com/index.php?page=shop.product_details&flypage=shop.flypage&product_id=205&category_id=18&manufacturer_id=0&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=26)I like right now:

I picked out the cheapest wedding band I could find and wore it faithfully until Priscilla the Springer Spaniel broke my ring finger and they had to cut the ring off at the clinic. It's still in my jewelry box, unconnected and bent all to heck... he he he :o the ring, I mean, not the finger :eek:

What can I say? I don't think hubby and I have one romantic bone between us! :p I've heard the length of the marriage is inversely proportional to the amount of money spent on the wedding...which means we should be married for at least another century-and-a-half! :laughing:

Christmas morning that year I got the ring (was only semi-surprised) and of course I was squeeling like a girl and then he said .... so will you? I said of course :) . Then we went to his folks for Christmas morning.

The ring is nice, I love claddagh rings as well

I wear a claddagh ring now and so does my man. I wear mine on the ring finger of my left hand and he wears his on his pinky finger of his left hand. We also both wear it with the crown pointing out. It is the shaped claddagh so the crown part actually digs in if it is worn the other way:o

I didn't want to know when, with what ring or how he was going to do it. Shortly after we moved in together we discussed what it meant and if we both thought that the next step was marriage. We both felt that we wanted to spend forever together and then I told him that I wasn't big into jewellry, so I said than any ring he might get me would have to be very modest, nothing gaudy or baubly. And that was the last time we truly spoke about marriage in that way. So I waited... and we were constantly nagged by family. I figured he would do it when he was ready, so I never asked when it was going to happen. And I definitely didn't expect it when we were on vacation since it was such and expensive trip. I did tell him that if he did it in public I would say NO. I hate seeing public engagements.

i have a ring that was my grans. My grandad had a diamond mine with some other people in South Africa and long story short, he used the diamonds he got from there to make a ring for my gran. I always wore it when i went to visit her when she passed away :rip: year before last it was just generally known as my ring. I would love to use those diamonds for an engagement ring. I think the ring as it is now is WAY too big. Im not a big diamond fan but its kind of sentimental...

After I said yes Samson, my kitty (RIP) came along with a ring attached to her collar...that also took me a while to see it because I didn't want to have him on my lap....it wasn't very smmoth, but it was romantic:D

Actually, I'd settle for some of byrd's heart-shaped food! Yum! (insert drooly smiley here...:D )

Yeah, those Egyptians really know how to whip up a Spanish Omlet! Yummy.

My ring is not expensive, nor are they real stones, I didn't care what I got (always said that I wouldn't wear anything worth more than the finger it's on), I just wanted something different (which I got) and white gold (which I also got). :p

cpietra: That is a really cute proposal.

Rolands mom: That is a really nice ring... nice symbol seeing your grandfather made it and your grandmother wore it. :lovestruck:

What's a proposal?? :laughing:

I got the "well, I guess we should get married before I go to Afghanistan" :laughing: Kris isn't big on romantics, and I'm cool with that, neither am I. We're planning on going somewhere warm and getting married there (like Jamaica mon!).

Here's a pic of us at St Barb's day in December...This is as romantic as it gets!!!

Thank you. yes it is very special and very beautiful. Im a little ambivilent about changing the setting cause of the sentimental value, but well, until i need a ring (which may be a few years yet) its staying as it is!
It seems the unromantics far outweigh the romantics....i think we have some work to do ladies....

I am a romantic and so is my man....it can suck to be a romantic sometimes. You have all kinds of expectations, and you get sad when they aren't met.

Tom's not a really romantic type--at least he's not really creative about it. But I kind of like that because he had a friend who was really into showy displays and wanted everyone to know it. Like having songs played for his wife over the radio but having it done during work hours because all the women in his office would think it was great.

If Tom does something for me it's for ME ! Not for show.

When we were dating we had kind of talked about getting married, and then we were watching the World Series one night and he just said something like "I would ask you to marry me if I knew you would say yes but I don't know what you'll say but if I was sure you would say yes I would ask you." It was even more convoluted than that I think. I said something like "You'll have to ask if you want to know." And we danced around like that for awhile until we had pretty much established that we both wanted to get married.

Yeah not a movie of the week ! LOL ! A couple weeks later we went out to look at rings. And he did do the really old fashioned and romantic tradition of asking my dad's permission. It was so sweet and it took him 3 tries to get up the nerve to do it.

I'll always be grateful for that too because my father so appreciated that show of respect.

That was a bazillion years ago and I can't believe how young we were. We thought we were pretty old but now when I look at our wedding pics I say "WHAT WERE WE THINKING ???":laughing:

No regrets !:goodvibes:
