    Re: Popping the BIG question

    I proposed to Mrs. 2844 using a mixed tape ... in a car ... while I was driving ... on 75! :o

    I picked her up and to go to a Bengals game (vs. Jaguars in '97). I put in the tape. After one song, my voice could heard over the speakers were I instructed her to look in the glove compartment where she found the 'box'.

    An exicted female passenger in the front seat who wants to 'thank you' is not the safest situation when you're driving down the highway.

    Re: Popping the BIG question

    My father was driving my mother to the train station (this was in NY), and asked "So do you see this working out?", she answered "yes"...when she got back to her apt., she asked her roomie -- is it possible to get engaged and not realize it? She didn't figure it out till she came back!

    This looks like it has exactly what you need, J-Mac...

    "Romantic marriage proposal ideas to help you create the most unique and romantic marriage proposal."
    http://www.romancestuck.com/romantic...g-proposal.htm

    My own proposal story is mundane, but I've known a few guys who went to great lengths to do something unique. Sadly, most of them are not married anymore. As a dyed-in-the-wool pragmatist, my main piece of advice is not to be one of those people who works harder planning the proposal than on planning for married life. Good luck!

    Re: Popping the BIG question

    I was once kinda forced into getting engaged. She kept bringing it up all of the time...Saying stuff like "When are you gonna make me an honest woman?".

    After about two years, I finally caved and said "I guess we should get married or something..."

    I had it all planned. We were going to do it in Hawaii in a fern grotto and everything.

    Then she dumped me because I "was too nice". She had some major issues, and was somewhat upset, but I had a heckuva good time in Hawaii without her.

    Nowadays, I'm in a really good relationship with the most wonderful girl. It's been about six months, and those little thoughts are creeping into my head. There's no way I'm gonna ask her in the near future, but this is the first girl I've dated that really makes me feel this way.

    It's all kinda creepy. I could have kids with that girl by now, and I never would have met the one I'm with now.

    Dead man walking.

    :mhcky21:


    Nah, just kiddin'. Sort of.

    I proposed to Mrs. '62 in a really nice restuarant. I called ahead to reserve a private table, and when we showed up, everyone on the staff knew about it. 12 years old at the time Garrett, her son, my step-son, was in on it. I had him hiding the ring box, so she wouldn't be suspicious of any extra bulges in my trousers, beyond the normal massive one she would already recognize. :smokin:

    She had no idea it was coming. When the time came, I said to Garrett "Son, pay attention. This is how you propose to the woman you love."

    I got down on one knee, and asked her to make me the happiest man alive and marry me. The people all around us saw it all, and stopped eating as they stared at us.

    Kelly nearly fainted. She said yes (gasp) and everyone around us clapped as we made out.

    People came up to the table the rest of the night to congratulate us.

    It was way cool.

    Re: Popping the BIG question

    Someone was telling me how my friend got engaged (it was later broken...), and she said "Yeah, Ben got down on his hands and knees, and popped the question. It was so romantic."
    I responded, "Hands and knees?!"
    She didn't quite get what she said wrong....

    Re: Popping the BIG question

    thanks everyone for your stories and your jokes

    I don't plan on running (God help me), but I do plan on sitting on it for a few more weeks, before I throw down that hefty chunk of change.

    Thanks again.

    Re: Popping the BIG question

    This is going to sound stupid. My idea of a romantic proposal is so simple.

    (I like simple. I'm a woman who thinks a single red rose is 10,000 times more romantic than a dozen.)

    or

    Proposing out on a boat, just the two of you.

    Re: Popping the BIG question

    Be sure to take her somewhere secluded, like a bridge high over a waterfall. That way if she says "no," you can just chuck her over the bridge without fear that there will be witnesses.

    But seriously. I proposed to my wife in a garden on a college campus. She had made it very clear that she didn't want anything public or ostentatious. Women are different. Some like to be the center of attention, and would prefer something semi-public. Some women hate that. See if you can figure out which type of woman your woman is.

    A phone call. Worse yet: Instant Messaging. Definitely, an IM

    after all, if you're promising to make the mundane romantic, the logical corrollary is to make the romantic mundane.
