How did he pop the question?
I am feeling a little nostalgic
How did your H ask you to marry him? Or were you the one doing the asking?
H asked on Memorial Day … he had the ring for awhile and just didn’t really know how to ask. We were living together so it was a pretty sure thing I would say yes. He kept hinting at it all day about it being a holiday but he was not sure if he should give me a present or not.
He finally gave it to me … I don’t remember what he said really but I do know I told him, “you have to actually ask me” because he never did.
Nothing special but it got the job done

He asked me on our first x-mas together. I went to his house in the afternoon so we could exchange gifts alone together and he had a stocking for me. At the bottom of the stocking was a small jewelry box, and inside it was a clue. So I proceeded to follow clues all around the house and ended up back at the tree. I was freaking, but at the end it was earrings in the last box….
Then about half an hour or so later he was showing me what he had got that morning from his family, and next thing I know he’s on his knee with the ring in hand. I was so shocked. I was so sure he was asking with the scavenger hunt, but he threw me off on purpose with the earrings.
Mine asked when we were mini golfing. That’s where we had our first date. He had the ring for over 9 months before he asked and was waiting for the perfect time. On the second to last hole has a bush in the middle and he went first so when I came around he bent down to get the balls out of the hole and landed on one knee. I swear he didn’t even ask because I was just in shock and crying and nodding my head, he swears he did.
He said about 6 months before that he had a plan for asking and I thought he was going to do it mini golfing and after the time we went mini golfing I told him that’s what I thought it was going to be. And so after he asked he told me I was right about where just not when.
I love how he threw you off Magster! That is awesome
Lilibell – how long were you together before you got engaged? I remember you meeting him and it didn’t seem like that long…. he just must have known!!

this is actually a source of good natured ribbing in our house. we are not in fact married and dont have any plans to get married. we arent opposed to the idea it’s just we’re not very romantic and all that paper work, blech.
for years he has referred to me as “my girl” then suddenly about two years ago he introduced me to his boss as his finace. i was so surprised that i actually laughed and said “when’d that happen?” he has been referring to me thus ever since and when ever i hear it i make jokes like “i dont rememeber saying yes.” and “where’s my ring?”
gaamy- That’s funny.
jasonlovessara- Our first date was end of July 2012. He bought the ring in November 2012. and he asked me end of September 2013.

It’s kind of a long story. He had a whole day together planned out; took me out for lunch, then downtown to the riverfront park where we went walking for a bit. He had a big backpack full of stuff he used in the proposal and leading up to it. A highlight was 8 roses he gave me throughout the day and each rose had a card tied to it giving a reason why he loved me. After he actually popped the question and gave me the ring, we went out to dinner at a really nice restaurant downtown.
twosapphires: that’s so sweet.

My story is nothing special. I already knew he was going to be buying me a ring because a few weeks before Christmas he was asking me the name of the jewelry store that we saw a commercial for. He went to the store with his sister and had the ring hiding in our room since before Christmas. On January 2nd, we had our anatomy scan and found out I was having a girl. He wanted to give me the ring then, but the weather was bad so we didn’t go anywhere fancy, just a Chinese buffet. January 5th, when we woke up, he asked if I wanted my surprise now or later, and I said now. I was sitting on my bed in my pajamas and he asked me in Spanish to marry him and gave me the ring.
