Please share your underwhelming proposals if you have... I’ve been engaged for 3 months and am just beginning to accept how unromantic my proposal was (don’t get me wrong I’m so happy to finally be engaged but I was a little underwhelmed so I’m trying to get over it). I never asked for anything huge, just wanted it to come from the heart. To be fair, I knew about my proposal because we’ve been together for a while and have a child together. We also did decide for financial reasons that by my birthday this year (valentines day) we’d be engaged. Well obviously when he wanted to get away to the mountains for Valentine’s Day I kinda knew it was happening, but was still so excited to see what he had up his sleeve. He had me pick the hotel room and dinner reservations because he was unsure if I’d like anything he picked (which is frustrating cause I would have been happy with him just taking the time to plan something). He waited till the last possible minute to propose so I knew it had to be coming after dinner our last night there. He told me earlier that day that my friends were coming up for dinner that night (apparently that was supposed to be a surprise I later found out) so the whole time during dinner I felt like I was gonna vomit cause we all knew why we were there lol. I really don’t enjoy being the center of attention to be honest. Then he and one of my friends kept getting up from dinner (later I found out to look for a good spot to pop the question since my FI didn’t have any idea where to even do it) after dinner the two of them just walked off and me and my other friend followed behind.. the place was closing and some of the lights were getting turned off. He then stopped near a pond in the restaurant and got down on his knee. I don’t even remember him actually asking me cause it was still kind of loud in the restaurant and I was so nervous that he was asking in front of friends I could hardly hear him. My friends took a couple pictures and that was it basically. I’m happy we’re engaged and of course I said yes but I do sometimes wish it could have been just the two of us, more casual, and maybe then it would have felt less transactional and more genuine. He has also mentioned he wishes he didn’t invite our friends and wants to try and do it again in the future. I feel like that’s not possible or necessary although I wouldn’t be opposed if he did something with just the two of us, not anything flashy.. just something intimate and romantic. Just for the two of us. Thoughts? Anyone care to share their underwhelming proposals? I’m hoping I’m not the only one..
