Well... I waited on my wife to get home from work. I was so nervous... had to go to the bathroom to ummmm, well relieve an upset tummy :D:D:D I set the box down on the nightstand and hit the thinking chamber... and when I came out she was standing there with it on her hand and crying. I took that as Yes and it's a story she loves to tell, how I DIDN'T propose to her.

This is what my dad did.....

My parent's were at a casino and he sat there and waited for my mom to win on the slot machine and when she did he threw the ring in with the coins and waited for her to find it and then asked her.

One of my dad's friends did something freaking awesome! He took an egg and sliced it open with a razorblade put the ring in the egg superglued it back together and told her to make him breakfast :LOL:

We were moving out of the house we were renting as our contract was up, but we were still waiting to close on the house that we were buying so all we had in the rental for our last night there was an air mattress and after the house was cleaned up and ready to be left I proposed to her (had asked her to marry me several times before but she said it wasn't legitimate without a ring, lol) and that's when she said yes. The idea of doing it at that time was to give us some celebration as we moved into our new house, but we ended up being "homeless" for 3 months and staying at my brothers place and her parents place for those months lol. In the end it worked out though, we moved into the house about a year ago and got married last december. Good luck, and if it is the right girl then it isn't "game over" lol!

Anniversary would be a great time to do it!

You're 22 right? So you've been with her since high school?

I went shopping for a ring one day, mainly to get a feel for how much it was gonna cost me...

I stopped in to the jewelry store, and they were offering 0% interest, so I figured I'd see what they said.... They approved me for about $200 less than the cost of the ring.

I pulled out my trusty cell phone and called her up (we had a joint bank account even then) to ask if it would be OK to spend the $200 on "something that would take about 3 weeks to arrive". I was very cryptic as to what this item was. She agreed with some serious reservations, as she didn't have a clue what I was up to.

I arrived home a little while later with the ring in my pocket. She didn't get home for another hour or so. When she did I was making supper, gave her a kiss, welcomed her home and pretty much pretended nothing happened earlier.

It was pretty typical for her to take a shower soon after she got home, so I suggested that she do so, and I'd have supper ready soon after. Instead of finishing supper I paced the house pretty much from one end to the other. Although it only took a few minutes it felt like an eternity.

When she came back into the kitchen and noticed that I had made almost no progress on supper, and that I appeared nervous she asked what was wrong with me. I got all tongue tied, dropped to one knee, handed her the ring and "popped the question".

The rest as they say is history. Our 13th anniversary is coming up next month.

Good luck and keep us updated

When I was dating my current wife, I stated that any girl that could stick it out with me for 3 years, I'd have to marry her. On the day of our 3rd year together, she reminded me of my statement. I responded with "I did say that didn't I....so when do you want to do this?"

Not much of a proposal...LOL.... but we do have 13 wonderful years of marriage behind us, and looking forward to many more. :smileup:

I took her to a nice restaurant and before going in I gave her a little gift bag. In the bag was one of those cute little plush puppies with the diamond ring tied around it's neck. She loved it and said yes right away. We just had our 23rd anniversary, :woohoo:

Alrite well so far here is the plan.

Her bday is OCT16 and were going back to CA to visit her family. While were there her cousin wants me to take pictures of her, her man and their baby at the beach cuz I have my nice camera and yada yada. Well, I got into the scheme with her cuz and were just going to happen to go to the beach me and Krissi call "ours" cuz its where i took her on our first "date" (weird story, too long to type lol)

So after we take pictures for her cousin, they are going to pull the "We need to take pictures of you guys now!!!"

and well take a few pictures and then ill pop the question and it will be forever saved on digital film lol.

I asked her mom for her blessing a few weeks ago when we were back in CA for another friends wedding and thankfully she said yes so I guess im kinda stuck now hahah

I get paid again on Wednesday and then its off to buy her ring. A long time ago she picked it out and fell in love with it and drools over it every time we walk by the store to go get rats and crickets for our pets .

Every time i think about the $$ i just think about mods for the Ram haha if she found out she would kill me!!!

Hopefully she says yes and mid oct I can update this thread with some amazing pictures lol
