    During a vacation trip to Puerto Vallarta. I asked her while we took a walk on the beach. Tried to make it really special for her and get her by surprise. I think it worked :lol  she cried for awhile before she could say yes.

    my husband was not romantic at all (well....how he got the ring was)
    I knew he had the ring becuase he asked me to pick it out, he was scared he would pick out something I didn't like (I'm a simple girl and didn't want a big gawdy ring a simple 1/4 carat princess cut ring was fine for me and this surprised him for some reason)
    well we had just finished moving in together and I didn't know he had finished paying for the ring and had it in his possession (we were college kids and didn't have a lot) and he waits until dessert and I have a huge piece of chocolate cake in my mouth and he brings out the ring and says "so honey how bout it" I said something that sounded like "ok" and the rest is history.
    But how he got the ring....he hocked his Ken Griffey Jr. rookie card that was apparently worth a lot.

    I proposed on Valentine's Day 2011. I had just gotten a job after 3 years of unemployment so there was no proper engagement ring. I felt bad about that but didn't want to let the date slip by without proposing. After dinner, which I cooked, I sat her down on the couch and said I wanted to tell her a story. I then proceeded to tell her about how I didn't want to propose without a proper ring, but I realized that what we had was so strong that I didn't need a diamond ring to propose. Besides, she already had a ring on her right hand that we had gotten at our first Renaissance Festival two years earlier. So I asked her if I could take that ring off of her right hand, put it on her left hand and if she would marry me. With tears in her eyes, she said "you know I will" and that was that. She got a proper engagement ring 2 months later.

    I think, if a guy ever proposed to me, I'd want him to keep it simple. Joe, shouldn't this guy come up with his own idea?? That make it even more special to his unique lady. Everyone is different;he should cater to her likes.

    Mr. Right will never propose to me :( . My hand can't talk :cry

    Simple is good enough I guess, but I'd want it to be a day to remember.

    Or just in case you divorce, and some other asshole proposes to her down the road.
    Then she could compare how much cooler your proposal was.

    A friend needs ideas? Tell him to think on his own. Make it unique, not a copy.

    When I knew I wanted to marry my fiance, I had spent months "just talking" about our future lives, such as wedding plans and engagement. My fiance had always told me it'd be her dream to be proposed to in front of the castle at Disneyland. So, after months of telling her it was a stupid idea ... I proposed to her in front of the castle. She said it was the happiest day of her life.

    My fiancee and I originally met online, so I actually sent her an e-mail with a poem I wrote that told her to come outside when she was done reading it, where I was waiting with the ring. Then I told her to check her mail. =p Several people have told us it's both the dorkiest and the sweetest thing they've ever heard of.

    I've warned her, though, if we ever get on the Kiss Cam at a Thunder game, I'm going to drop to one knee and propose again. And she has, in turn, threatned to kill me.

    Just sayin maybe they have angry xxxxxx pornsex all the time. Like they hate each other, lots of hair pulling, choking and badname calling and stuff.

    He knows she's a personal dirty little whore already, but he also knows that her wedding day would be a special occasion for her, something that she's fantasized about all her life.

    I'm just saying, he has to know her and her individuality. You see on the news when a guy proposes at a sports game and it backfires, but sometimes she is super happy. It depends on the person. So he shouldn't even consider other people''s ideas. It's gotta be his idea and then "special" to her.
