How you were proposed to/ asked out

So we've been having threads of the lovey dovey nature so I thought I would start one.
Here's my story....

We had been dating for about 3 months. My honey is in the Marine Corps. So, it was the Marine Corps Birthday Ball and we went. So, at the beginning of the night, everyone sits down at tables and listens to the Superiors give speaches and all kinds of stuff like that. Afterwards everyone eats dinner and hangs out. He kept leaving our table to go talk to other people. I didn't think anything of it because we had rented a party bus for afterwards so I thought he was just planning out the logistics of the night. Then all of a sudden he decides to take pics. Which I thought was weird because we had already discussed how we didn't want any because we thought it was a waste of money. So, we go to the photographer booth and we are getting ready to pose. Then he gets down on one knee and popped the question. We have pics and everything, and all of our friends we there and everything. It was super cool. Now every Ball I get asked if I was the one proposed too durring pics.

well at the time we have been going out for 3 years. He had filed his taxes late so when he finally got his tax refund. I had just got off work at 9pm. He wanted to take me to walmart to buy me some clothes and Lillian some stuff. I was really exhausted and didnt really want to go but he was persistant. So like a kid being dragged to get their annual shots I went. I figure he just wanted to go get him a new fishing rod and a game so the whole time I was in a bad mood.

He casually stops at the jewlery counter and looked at some watches.

He then moved towards the cashiers counter for "assistence" which was right by the engagment/wedding ring sets and turned and looked at me and ask me to marry him. I got to pick out the ring set I wanted and my exhaustion and crankiness vanished.

Aw, how romantic. I picked out my wedding ring at Walmart too. Jesse searched high and low for my engangement ring. He did a good job too. Oh, and I knew he was going to propose he asked me what size ring I wore. Dead give away for someone who doesn't buy jewelery. (=

mine is such a loooong story! we were kinda secretly dating because my parents didn't really care much for him... and I was sorta with someone else OHappy he lived in Oklahoma and was just visiting Texas for a bit. even though I wasn't exactly single, he kept calling and asking me to go do stuff with him. the first night we hung out was at a park by my parents house and we really hit it off. the other guy ended up dumping me, so the next day I told Matt I could officially be his gf... but he got in a fight with his dad and was leaving the next day. I was crushed, but he asked me to go with him... so I snuck away in the night with him. This was in Novemeber. after a week or so, his mom's phone calls about my mom's phone calls finally wore away at hime and he decided it was best if we went back home. the day we returned happen to be on Thanksgiving. he had mentioned while we were in OK that he wanted to marry me.... but not like a proposal - more like feeling me out to see if I was in it for the long haul or if I just wanted to date. at this point we'd only known eachother 3 months or so, but I did feel very strongly about him and it was a surprise that he wanted to marry me, not just get in my pants! so, we went home and everyone was happy. the next year, on Thanksgiving, in the freezing cold, he took me to the park bench we first sat at - which I thought was just to reminisce (he was very into marking our firsts and celebrating ALL of them - date, kiss, official bf-gf date, I love you's... too many for me to remember!) and he pulls out this ring and asks me to be his wife. we had talked about getting married before this and I had been pulling pictures off the internet of what kinda ring I liked and finding pics for him to find a ring he liked. mine was a very simple idea, but apparently he couldn't find the right kind of ring so he got with a jeweler, designed the ring and had them make is just for me!

ok, i haven't been asked to marry anyone yet, but i'm going to tell you how he asked me out.

Ok, for the fristpart of my grade 10 (his 12) year we were really good friends (and i dremt about him every night cause i though he was the sweetest guy, but i thought he would never ever want to date me) and i acctual told him to go out with other girls, cause i wanted him to be happy. And i was aways secertly happy when they screwed up, though i did feel bad, cause he always was the one to got broke up with, only once did he break up with someone. But anyways, one time he had a girlfriend that i actually balled over after telling him to go out with (like seriously, my mom thought one of my friends died i was crying so hard, and man am i still embrassed about that to this day!) anyways, they went out for a month and than broke up, and than he asked me what was wrong with him. I told him that there was nothing, he was sexy and sweet and that girls were plain bitches alot of the time, cause most only want the brad pit/sex god/perfection guys that dont exist. We started flirting hardcore, and anyways, i finally felt that he might like me. I decieded i was gong to ask him out the next day at lunch.

Didn't happen, i explained my plans to my best friend at the time and asked her to help me have some "balls" anyways she laughed and said ya, she couldnt see why he would say no. So we went to our normal hang out place. i nearly died. A girl was sitting on his lap (one i hated, was sitting on his lap) i started to cry, without thinking, said had a migrane, and left the school. OUCH i was heartbroke, soooo mad at him and the girl, and at myself for thinking a guy could ever like me. Anyways i went home, and did my homework on the computer like normal. Around 4:30 he came on, and asked if i felt better, i told him i hated him (opps....) and aways he asked me why and i went on this huge speel on how i liked him and wanted to go out with him, but i for the longest time new that he could never like me cause who could like me, and that he was mean for leading me on and that i wast going to talk to him, cause i cant deal with this on and off crap, cause i didn't mean to fall for him.

We didn't talk for a few days ( i busted his ego) anyways, one day i was on my computer staring (no doing) at my homework, and his msn thing poped up saying he's sorry, and if we could be friends again. I said sure, as i had missed him. We talked for like 6 hours that night, and around the four hour mark we started flirting again (we're both flirts, what can i say) and aweek went on were we flirted alot, and i tried to not think he might ask m out. Well he did ask me out, in front of my whole english class, when he walked meto my class that one day. Course i said yes, nearly jumped out of my skin. Happy we're still happily together 2 1/2 years later.

edit :i forgot the part about the hospital, where it was before the english class - like two days, but still, that part ins't as great, cause i cant remember most ofit ^^ got to love morphine!
