I am married, but my dh never proposed to me. We talked about getting married. He bought me a ring. And then one day we were sitting around and he slipped it on my finger. And a few weeks later we got married.

I am just kind of regretting that he didn't ask me. He didn't get down on one knee and tell me how much he loved me or wanted to be with me or anything. He didn't wait for some special moment like a sunset or a candlelight dinner or a hockey game. I think he should have done something. I wish I had a better proposal story, thankfully no one asked me how he proposed.

I really don't know why I am posting this. Probably because he's not home, and it has bugged me for some time now. Although what to do about it I don't know.

Oh sweetie that stinks that you don't have some wonderfully romantic story to tell. Truthfully, though I think more women have stories similar to your rather than proposals that are grand and romantic. The end result it still the same. You are married to the man you love and he loves you in return. Sure the romantic proposal is nice but now you have the rest of you lives to be romantic together. Some guys just have trouble with that mushy stuff. Give him some gentle guidance or some not so gentle guidance if he doesn't get the hint.

It's good to get it off your chest if it's bugging you girl.

Dh and I don't have some romantice moment really.. We were just laying around on our 1st year living together anniversary and he looked at me and said "we should get married." So we just planned it for the next month because it was our three year anniversary of when we started dating. We just started planning it from there without family. It really is just our way though. The anniversary we have is based off our first kiss, not because he said "will you go out with me?" like all our lameo friends did. We just knew we were boyfriend and girlfriend from that point. To me the "proposal" is just the extention of our personalities. Nothing big and officical. But it doesn't work for everyone.

It was a proposal, just a quiet, personal one. I think it speaks volumes of your closeness, since there was never a question of your answer or a need for anything official.[/b]
I really never though of it that way, I liked what you wrote here.

Yeah I told her not to. I said make him respect you. Not treat you like a POS. But then again i love her to death but she is so blind. she put key logger on her computer to see if he was cheating . He is cheating but she wants more proof i said do u need to catch them in bed 2 gether. grrrr is all i can say sorry about my rant but she deserves better.

meh, my hubby tossed me a box on Christmas Eve, then went to rip open the Xbox i had bought him. about 10 min later, once the xbox was fully assembled, he turned around for a BRIEF second and said "well?" i said "well its pretty, and it fits..but.." like 2hrs later, once i pried him away from Halo2 and we had been to my moms and i showed the ring.. and everyone said "OHHH whats the ring mean??" i said.. "i guess NOTHING!" then we went to the truck to leave and he said "so it means nothing?" i said "i guess not, since thats what you said when you threw it at me"..then he asked me..nope no good, i was already wearing the ring! so i took it off and made him ask me again and put the ring on my finger.. while sitting in his smelly work truck.. so reallll romantic.

oh and FTR: i didnt get ripped off, the ring wasnt my Christmas present, he had already spent like $1500 on me and said he just didnt want to wait any longer since he'd been hiding the ring for months already! lol
