a proposal

Post by a random ninja » Sun Oct 04, 2009 11:07 pm

i plan on proposing to my girlfriend in the very near future, and i'd really like to avoid an avalanche of cliches when i do it. i'm not asking you guys to tell me exactly what to do, because obviously it needs to come from me. but if anyone has any interesting ideas or stories of family/friends who have gotten engaged or married that i could maybe use as a springboard, that'd be most helpful.

Shit man, well the best of luck to you! As long and you're genuine and all that I'm sure she'll be thrilled. Also, the internet knows all. Take a peek at what different sites say about the subject. That's usually helpful. ^_^

Once again, good luck man. Wish you the best. :]

Well, I've heard of a kid that asked a girl to the prom by baking his own fortune cookie, putting in a fortune, shrink-wrapping it, and convincing the Chinese restaurant's waiter to make sure she got it.

But then maybe you should just parachute somewhere or something.

On an everyday work night, average day. We do quite a bit of impulsive things so she didnt think twice about it. She got with me in the car, blindfolded, we talked about trivial things. No plan, no thought, plans never go to plan. We stopped in the middle of a meadow, with a big full moon right there above us. She's a very special girl, only moonlight will do. I put her on the hood and said ok look. That look on her face,.. made me say beautiful. When she looked back she saw me lookin at her instead of the moon, and i took a ring out of my pocket. No box, just a ring, and put it right on her finger. A year before we passed a few jewelry stores, when you listen good you can find the right ring. She didnt say anything, just smiled with these teary happy eyes, like she was shy or something, lookin down at that ring. A second after she looked up, and before words, her eyes already told me yes. What more can you want?

A few more months of hormones though...

It should contain a lot of backflips, imo.

If a guy did a backflip and then proposed to me, I'd accept.

Irrelevant, you should be more supportive of Sed and his new backflipping love. He'd be happy for YOU.

BTW Sed, I would totally say yes to any guy who just did a bunch of backflips too. It would have to be a lot though.

At least SOMEONE here is supportive of me. ; _ ;

Agreed. Boys have cooties.
Also, girls are grody. =<

I'm writing that one down, and using it when the time comes.
I'd probably add a clause to it, though. Something like "If you don't call me within a day, I will burn myself alive on your property".
That way I won't have to wait forever for a response. =3
