My fiance and I got engaged September 15, and it was quite an interesting (and I mean it when I say interesting!) proposal! I had been having a bad day and was down in the dumps, stressed out with school and work, and just bawling my eyes out. While my fiance and I were in the shower together, he kept hugging me and calming me down, and he just told me: "I know you're stressed, sweetie- it happens to everyone! But just know that these things will never change: I'll always be there for you, and I will always love you!" Then he got down on one knee (quite a feat to attempt in a shower!) and asked me to marry him. It was completely out-of-the-blue! He never really planned what he was going to say or when he was gonna do it, but one of our friends told me that he had been planning to propose for a while, even though we had only been dating for 9 months! So, it really took us BOTH by surprise! He didn't present a ring when he did it, so in the meantime, I'm wearing a huge, sparkly $3 costume ring until he saves up enough to get me a real one (many people have thought it was real!). I also have a promise ring that he gave me for our 6-month/my birthday.
Anybody else have an interesting proposal story?
