Coolest Proposals

“Lost in the middle somewhere..”

Okay, since Amazarak started a discussion on marriage, it gave me an idea about marriage proposals.

I have been married twice and both times when I was proposed to they were very awesome!

The first time was at the Intersection in GR. A live band was playing and the club was packed full. My now ex went down on the dance floor while I sat and chatted with friends. The next thing I know the singer in this band calls my name and the club goes quiet. He calls my name again and asks me to come down to the stage. I get down there and my ex is holding the microphone and in front of the entire dead-quiet club asks me to marry him. Holy crap! Of course I said yes and spent the rest of the night being hugged by strangers and didn't have to buy another drink all night! That was really cool.

Okay, I collect bears. I love bears. And my favorite animal (even though I know it's not a bear) is a koala bear. So the second time I was proposed to was at the San Diego Zoo. My husband got down on one knee in front of the koala bear exhibit (and all the people around it) and pulls out this long stemmed rose that opened up with a beautiful ring inside. Again, it was an incredible proposal that swept me off my feet. Ahhh, the memories.

I don't remember much about it, both times I proposed I was pretty drunk.:-)

I took my first ex to an upscale resturant in Chicago. We had a fondu course for dessert and I had the pastry chef put the ring into a piece of sponge cake. The whole staff and all the guests knew about it. Everybody sat watching trying not to be obvious about it. I tried to be calm but all the while I'm preparing to stop her if she starts to eat that piece of cake before she sees the ring. She had it on the skewer but noticed it just in time with this shocked look on her face. I got down on one knee and proposed, she accepted, and the whole place erupted in aplause.

Well, that explains why you are no longer married! LOL

We were actually in a movie theater! We'd spent the day Christmas shopping & lunch in the mall. Decided to catch a movie, in the openning premiers, he leaned over & said what a fun day he'd had, he loves me so much, loves spending time with me... then "Will you marry me" I said "WHAT?! You did not just propose to me in a movie theater!!" He tried to take it back but I wouldn't let him! Too late!! It's out there!
We had talked about it, for something to discuss in the future... he always said he'd have to figure out how to surprise me... He did!

Huh...weird...

Yeah there's one thing I miss about wife #1. She had mad-skills at giving head. She not only liked doing it, but she 'needed' to do it. She would actually get pissed-off if we went too long without her going down on me. She must've been a pornstar in a past life because her technique was nothing short of diabolical. I mean, the kind of head that makes you go; "ok,ok,ok, stop-stop-stop." :-)

She also had a really huge rack, hmmmmm....do think the two are related?

My husband proposed in a similar way as your first husband LMS.

We went out on a Satuday evening with my family to celebrate my birthday coming up that following Monday. I had a bit of an idea something was going to happen during dinner that night, but nothing did.

After dinner with the fam we went to a local bar owned by friends where we always hung out. I wasn't really expecting a big party or anything, but my friends kept showing up with these big ole poo eating grins on their face. We were sitting drinking, enjoying the night and getting ready to sing karaoke when my husband came up to me with the microphone in his hand.

I said "What are you doing" you could hear it through the speakers and the whole place stopped and got quiet. He got down on one knee and I was like "oh." I don't remember all that was said, but I did say yes. After that the whole place applauded and cheered and we both drank for free.

It was a pretty neat night all together and I was super happy my mom, dad and sister were there to witness it. It just made it that much more special to me.

My girl and I had planned a vacation to North Carolina (something we do often). We'd been together for 8 years at that point and everyone had stopped asking when were we getting married. About a week before our trip I just blurted out, "Hey, why don't we surprise everyone and come back married - you know, elope!" Which is exactly what we did.

Not a very romantic proposal, but it turned out to be a great memory that we smile about every time it comes up. Married in a little chapel in the high hills of The Smokies. Our parents, who had by then payed for several expensive weddings, had the biggest smiles on their faces because this one didn't cost them one cent :)

Hmmm... My favorite too!! yes... I get ornery when I haven't given it in a while! My husband always calls me his little pornstar! Was I married to you in a past life?! LOL

That is so awesome! Didn't you absolutely feel like the most special woman on the planet at that very moment?

I think that sounds like an amazing and special memory for you. Very cool. It actually reminds me of getting married the 2nd time. He proposed when I flew out to CA to visit him for a week. Then I came back home and a couple months later couldn't stand it anymore and I packed up and moved out to CA to be with him (since he was in the Marines at the time). Our plan was that when his time was up in the corps that we would come back to Michigan and get married. However, one Monday morning he said "do you want to go to Vegas and get married this weekend?" And I said sure. So after he got off base on Friday, we and a couple of our friends jumped in cars, drove to Vegas, and were married right around midnight. It was great. I had already had a big wedding once so it did not matter to me to have another one. But that's our wedding story.

Love it! Eloping is the way to go. No messy family bickering, year-long planning and drama - just good clean fun, then straight to the sack!

It was really neat. There are still people that talk about it too. It's nice to have a good story to share as well when people ask.

By the way, I have been following along on the married how many times thread and I just wanted to tell you that you have such a good head on your shoulders and no matter what happens, just don't let anyone ever make you feel like you are worth less than you are. Keep your head up.

Thanks LMS, I appreciate that.
