Hey Just Engaged Board,
I’m looking for stories of proposals that did not go as planned. Maybe it was just a little awkward or even a full-on nightmare. Post it below. Thanks!
I had just come back from seeing a friend pick her bridal dress. Told FI I wasn't feeling good, he said he'd make dinner while I took a nap. He made a very romantic dinner and asked that I put on something nice as it was date night (even though all I wanted was to lounge in my sweatpants). He then had me read a poem he wrote and asked me then and there. While I was totally happy and thrilled, I was definitely feverish the whole time and sadly that's mostly what I remember was not feeling good The next day I came down with what we lovingly call the plague. I missed an entire week of work, and barely managed to call my immediate family members to tell them I was engaged as I was so incredibly sick.To add insult to injury, two weeks later after finally recoverin the ceiling collapsed in our apartment. Suffice to say, the start to our engagement was not perfect, but I'm lucky to have a wonderful man to help me get through it all!
My FI and I were planning a cabin trip with our friends Memorial Day Weekend and since he was working late the day we were going to drive up he asked me to pack up his bags for him. As I was packing I couldn't find his long johns anywhere so I searched his entire closet and came across a beautiful red box, it was the same red box my diamond earrings came in last Christmas so I figured that he has just kept the box... so I opened it... and there it was.... my ring. I dropped everything and stared at it for about 40 mins, I EVEN TRIED IT ON!!! I didn't know what to do or say. I am all about Karma so I thought OMG! Now that I know it's never going to happen. It also had the insurance and it was bought a month in advance!! All I could think of was... why has he waited to long?! HahaSo I put it back just in time for him to get home... He brought the ring with him and proposed on the top of a mountain, I didn't even know he grabbed it before I left so I was in complete shock, I thought, well he waited a month to buy it so he probably is going to do it on my birthday or something... NOPE ...Now I have my beautiful ring
