    Anyone here have an interesting marriage proposal story to tell? I'll let you in on mine...

    It is important to note that I ended up marrying my high school sweetheart, but only after being apart for several years while we dated other people. Anyway, here goes:

    I proposed to my wife while we were dating for the second time, or during what I refer to as "round 2." I took her to the exact location where we first broke up (which happens to be in the parking lot of the place where we worked together in high school) pretending that I needed to pick up something. As we got out of the car, I circled around to give her a hug, and then dropped to one knee to pop the question. I don't remember all that I said but I do remember telling her that I wanted to do this at this very spot because I wanted to change the one bad memory of our time together into something wonderful and that "nothing will ever break us apart again." :)

        I was proposed to on a hiking trip...my fiance and I were hiking down the Potomac River, we did this our first or second date we would go back every year we dated. He took me into one of the few quiet overlooks on the river...said it was beautiful and drop down on one knee. Needless to say I cried, and the rest is history :)

          That's beautiful. I can actually imagine the scene. I think I'm gonna cry. :cry: Well, I'm only 20 but I've already figured out how I'm going to propose to my woman. I'm going to do it in NYC, just take a trip and do it in the middle of Time Square.

            Apparently nobody who grew up in the 80's ever got married... :shock:

              I took my wife to dinner with her sister and my best friend. She wanted a mixed drink so I asked the waitress to let me know when she was going to bring out her drink. The waitress motioned for me and I got up as if to use the restroom and went and got the drink from her. I walked it to my wife and when she turned around she saw it was me with her drink and the ring box. I dropped to one knee and asked her to be my bride.

              We have been married for 12 and a half years now and have 2 children.

                I just don't want to rush into it. My parents got married and had me at 18, and were divorced 6 years later. I'm 20 now, and don't even want to think about starting a family until I'm 30 and have at least one book published. :D

                I'm so growing a beard like the dad from 'Family Ties' when I become a father... :)

                  I'm not married but someone I know proposed in a really cool way.

                  His girlfriend went on a trip with her family to somewhere in Mexico. He drove all the way to Mexico (from outside Toronto) to propose to her. She was at a restaurant with her family and he was going to bring her food out and propose but apparently, he got lost on the way to the restaurant and ended up being two hours late. Her parents coaxed her to wait, making up senseless excuses and when he finally arrived, he brought her food and proposed to her there.

                  I thought that was kind of cute.

                      This subject is touchy for me because of what happened to my fiancé. She was still living in Florida at the time and I was living here in Texas. One night over the phone, she told me how a friend of her proposed to her, and she had to say no, because we had just met and she knew we were right for each other. I laughed, because I had already bought her a ring for her visit during Valentine’s Day. She got mad because I laughed, and hung up. I called her back and told her that I knew that we were meant for each other too. I asked her to marry me then, I couldn’t wait. Sure enough, she went into the hospital soon after and in a few weeks she passed away. I never got a chance to put the ring on her finger, and I regret not being able to visit her to do so. I share this with you all not only to let you all in my persona, but also to help with the teaching that time with loved ones is precious.

                        Although I didn't expect a sad story like this when I started the topic, I respect the courage it took to share it. It does make you think about how much we take for granted and how we should cherish the time we have with loved ones.

                          I was 19 he came into my work, got on his knee, and I said yes. Yep pretty standard story, but it is still a sweet memory. But the ring was really cool, I have never been into bling. It had this beautiful leaf design to it.

                                I took my wife to dinner and set it up that when the waitress brought her a margarita, the box that her ring was in was tied to was tied to the glass. When she got the drink she saw the box, I dropped to one knee, took her hand then asked her to be my wife. That was almost 14 years ago.

                                          Hmm, what a good time for this subject to come up, I just got engaged on Friday! However the story is not very interesting. I was supposed to go on delivery (he does delivery's for an industrial supply company) with my bf on friday since I had the day off. When he came to pick me up he yelled from the porch he had something for me (which I thought would be a smoothie or a coffee) when I went out he was on one knee with a ring! I thought he was BS'ing me but he was for real! Friggin' brat asking me in the porch while I was wearing my damn pj's. :lol: I can't complain though, I should be happy I got one seeing as we've been going out 9 years :twisted:
