PDA

I proposed to my girlfriend last night.

I went to pick up the ring after work, and set everything up when I got home.

I posted a note on the door that told her that I love her, and that I kiss the ground that she walks on. Inside the apartment, I made a trail of Hershey's Kisses illuminated with candles, which stretched to the bedroom where I put two dozen roses on her pillow and two glasses of champagne by the bed, also illuminated with candles.

I watched out the window until I saw her car pull up in front of the apartment, then I hid myself out on the balcony where I could watch her reaction as she entered the apartment. She smiled as she followed the candy/candle trail to the bedroom, and then started searching for me. When she realized that I wasn't in the apartment, she came out onto the balcony with me and gave me a kiss, thanking me for the roses. I told her to wait until I came in, and we'd celebrate the end of a long week with the champagne when I got inside.

I came in to the bedroom where she was sitting on the bed, smelling the roses, and I stood in front of her. I told her that she is the most amazing woman I know, my best friend, and that I want to spend the rest of my life with her and have a family with her someday. Then I pulled the ring box out of my pocket, got down on one knee as I opened it and asked her to marry me.

She cried as she said yes, and then asked me to put the ring on her finger.

For the first time in a long time, I'm very happy with my life, and I can't wait to spend the rest of it with her.

Congrats Sava!!

I know I'm being debbie downer here, but the lawyer in me is forcing me to type this: get a pre-nup. (I say that to all my friends)

Congrats again.

Congrats, TransSiberanOrchestraFan (it is the holidays, so I felt maybe your handle should change to reflect). ;)

I did almost the same thing in The Sims, and she still said 'no'. I'm glad it worked for you, though. Congratulations.
