Yay, it's Valentines Day almost! And I'm stuck at work scanning negatives, so let's share romantic or terribly awkward stories of proposals: our own, our friends, our dogs because some of us have bored mothers who get their dogs married in a show of capitalism at its breaking point.
My own proposal:
About four or five months into my courtship with GuyTronic, I got incredibly wasted and declared to him "I want to marry you!" He, also incredibly wasted, said "okay", and then we passed out. And then we both pretended the other person said nothing the night before. GuyTronic insists this never happened. GuyTronic is wrong.
Around ten months, we were living apart (he was finishing up his masters and I started my PhD). He asked me what kind of ring I wanted (same shape as my mothers, which I've always liked, but an emerald). I drove ten hours to see him over a short weekend. As was our habit, as soon as I walked in the door we started to go into sexy times. Whilst both of us were naked, he proposed. And then we fucked like rabbits. That Christmas, I got him a ring (because damned if I am going to be the only one wearing one) and threw it him and said "You. Marry me".
AND IT WAS TOTES ROMANTIC YA'LL.
Now amuse me while I scan shit.
ETA: OH NO MY BOSS MADE ME TALK TO HER AND NOW I AM BEHIND ON COMMENTING. BUT I LOVE ALL YOUR STORIES!! They're making me so happy <3
