***ITT: I Get Engaged To The Greatest Woman In The World***

Tonight (technically last night it's 12:38AM right now) I proposed to my girlfriend, Jessica.

Lets start by the beginning of the day...

I woke up, got coffee went outside and had a cigarette.

Cleaned the house a bit

Practiced guitar for a few hours

Looked at my enrollment sheet and a book of classes availiable for the college i'm going to be attending this fall. (I need to have that in within the next couple days)

I then was on the phone with Jessica helping her through her enrollment this fall.

Then um...more guitar practice and I mellowed myself out to Incubus' "Make Yourself"

She came over, we talked, we walked, held hands, the whole nine. After wards we went out and got a bite to eat. Afterwords we checked out the downtown area to see what was going on tonight. As we returned to my house I gave her my lip ring (I took out my lip ring last night and she'll be getting her upper ear area pierced and she'll be wearing mine...sentimental thing). I reminded her to boil it on the stove for a couple hours before using it.


HERE'S THE GOOD PART: (and point of the thread)


She were about to leave my house tonight and as we were saying our good-byes next to her car. As she got in the seat and we had one last hug/kiss I decided that I couldn't wait any longer to "pop the question". I was going to wait until our Anniversary (its only a week away) but I just couldn't hold back anymore.

So...

I asked her to get out of the car, I pulled her away from the car and I just started reflecting on everything we've went through to make it to this point and how much I love her, care about her and what not. I got on one knee (somewhere during this conversation/speech and continued. As I came to the end of it I asked, "Jessica ******** *****, will you marry me?" She said, "yes, yes I will" with tears flowing down both sides of her face.

As I got to her middle name (during the proposal) she took a huge breathe and her eyes teared up. By the time I got to the "marry me" part of the question they were coming down by the bucket load. I was touching.

So, we're engaged!


Reactions? Questions? Comments?

Are you (or planning to be) engaged?

Cheers


EDIT: in the sentence where I quote myself about what I said when I asked her to marry me...the "***" is her middle and last name. Its not safe to post whole names on the net you know??? (just to avoid and confusion)

Funny thing is, when you'd starred out her middle name and surname I thought you were swearing at her.
Jessica, fucking bitch, will you marry me?

Fair play to you though. Enjoy life.

Give a man a fire, he's warm for a day. Set a man on fire and he's warm for the rest of his life.
