I pump-faked her. She somehow knew I bought the ring that evening, and i had it in my pocket.

Her: "what's in your pocket? the ring?"
Me: "no" (laughs)
Her: "you can't even lie"
I slide down onto the floor from the other couch and start to crawl over to her
Her: "oh my god, oh my god, oh my god"
Me: (pulls phone out of pocket) "oh, it's just my phone"
Her: "you're an ***hole!!!"

Then I pulled the ringbox out of my pocket and asked her....

Kind of cheesy but it was funny at the same time. Not in any way, shape, or form, what I had planned, but she kind of forced the issue. She hates being surprised and since she expected it, anything I had planned wouldn't have been a surprise for her at all. Kind of Frustrating on my end. I was up against it too because she always watched those proposal shows and I thought, "how do i compete with that crap?" I'm happy with the way it happened.

I did the whole Rocky Balboa thing "Yo Adrian, you know I waz thinkn, you know that uh, I lika you and you lika me and maybe, you know we could get married if you dont mind to much"

Not really, just laying on the couch with her, I rolled off of it and got on a knee and pulled the ring out of my pocket, she knew it was coming so doing something really surprising wasnt going to work. But she was surprised how I did it, ooooor maybe she just acted surprised to make me feel good. Anyway 10 years and going strong.

I gave her the ring and told her the time and place to be for the wedding.

She loves horses, so I took her to a horse B&B and we went trail riding. I proposed on horseback, terrified the entire time that the horse would run off with me. (I'm not much of an equestrian.)

I'm divorced now, but...

When we first met, one of our fondest memories was a time we ended up under a fountain in Washington Park, here in Portland. (this one: http://ntldr.com/Attachments/f5d009a...MG_1378p_2.jpg) It's bigger than it looks. You can stand under it, and it is like a big umbrella.

I don't remember if the fountain was on, but it was raining so hard it might as well have been. What we both remember was the raindrops rang off the bronze like bells chiming. Such a beautiful sound.

Years later, we were in the park, and I pulled her under the fountain for a kiss, like we'd done in college. She thought it was spontaneous, until I got one one knee and showed her the ring.

Proposed piss drunk in a hot tub at Lake Tahoe, she said yes. Had to knock 'er up to get her to set a date. Found out on a Wednesday she was pregnant, we were married on Sunday!

I rigged a kill switch in the cherokee and we went for a little drive, coming down the hill i flipped the switch and made it look like i was breaking down. I coasted to a stop at the baseball field, popped the hood and pretended to be tinkering with the jeep. Now mind you, she just got off work at the salon and is in high heels and a skirt, and theres a foot of snow on the ground.

I told her to come out and look at someting for me. After coaxing her to come out in the snow I dropped down and did the deed.

A little crude i guess, but at least in involved a jeep

Sitting on her folks front porch I pulled out a piece of paper and gave it to her.
She's like "What's this for?" And then she realized it was a Lay-away reciept for a ring.

We were poor, I always regetted not being more romantic about it. But she says it was romantic. And love telling her friends the story.
I bought her a 1/2 carat for our 10th anniversary to replace the 1/4 she had, She didn't want it. The 1/4 reminds her of how far we came.

We just celebrated 23 years last month.
