Well I got down on one knee, held out the box, and he opened it. I said "Will you marry me?" He looked at the ring, then at me, then said "Um....we can't get married, America has deemed us unworthy of that." So I said, "Damn, you're right. Oh well let's go have some gay sex."
The end.

Me: "Janet... (short pause cause my mind blanked).. Umm, i'm gonna try something now, but if you don't like it, let me know."

Her: "Uh ok..."

Me: "Stick out your left hand."

ROMANCE ALERT ( after over 4 years of marriage this level of romance is thankfully no longer required all the time)


Initially I bought a really nice platinum ring >1 carat solitare with another carat of bagets (sp?) on the band and then went to Walmart and bought the cheapest CZ ring I could buy, I think it was a little over $20 after tax.

Since we initially met at a soccer venue I used some excuse to take here back there. While she was sitting in about the same place as when we first met I put the Wally ring in the place of the real one and asked something like.."when you first saw me here and were drooling all over me did you ever think I would ask you to marry me?" I then showed here the CZ and she loved it. Since she easily passed that test I gave her the real ring a few seconds later.

I did it with a ring pop.

You sure have a lot to say on the gay marraige issue. So tell us the truth, are you attracted to the same sex?

Took her to see "The Wedding Planner" and gave a slide I had made to the theater manager to show during the pre-movie commercials that said "Will you marry me?" (with our names of course, so not everyone in the theater thought it applied to them)

I'm not saying I am, and I am not saying I'm not, but I am.


I only posted that because I am hurting inside, and I try to mask that hurt with laughter.

In bed. She thwarted all of my romantic plans, so I just thought hell with it, and proposed after sex.

It's ok, we still accept you for who you are, regardless of sexual preference. That's what makes AT so great.

For her birthday, I made a sweatshirt with "Will you marry me?" spelled out on it. Made sure she opened that gift last.

Gave my camcorder to a dancing buddy of mine.

Hooked a wireless microphone under the collar of my shirt and put the transmitter in my pocket.

Went out to dinner at a swanky-swanky-posh-posh place.

Then went to a dance being held by the Dallas Swing Dance Society.

Danced with her to our song ("The Way You Look Tonight") with the wireless mic live and the camcorder goin'.

When the dance ended and the floor cleared, we were there alone on the dance floor. I went down on one knee and proposed in front of the crowd.

Showed the video at our rehearsal dinner. :)

I'd be like "Are you kidding me? After all this time you still need to test me with a fake ring? If you still have qualms about me being superficial, we should just part."

Cuz if I had to spend another minute with you
I don't think that I could really survive

I never break my promise or forget my vow
But Lord only know what I could do right now!
I'm prayin' for the End of Time
It's all that I can do... oooh... oooooooh

Prayin for the End of Time
So I can end my time with youuuuuuuuuuu.

(Really scary part: this is all from memory.)
