A Straight-Up Proposal

| Romantic | April 19, 2013

(I’m male, and my boyfriend and I are sitting at a restaurant having dinner. We have been looking at rings for our engagement the previous weekend, but had decided that we would propose to each other on our own time. Currently gay marriage is still illegal in California.)

Boyfriend: “So, I know you want to have a ceremony. When were you thinking about having it?”

Me: “Oh, I don’t know. Not immediately that’s for sure. First off, it’s still illegal, and we also have like four weddings to attend this year.”

Boyfriend: “Okay, well that’s good.”

Me: “Why?”

Boyfriend: “Because I have your ring at home.”

Me: “What?!”

Boyfriend: “If you had said you wanted a ceremony immediately, I would have kept the ring for a little while. But since you’re willing to wait, I can give it to you now.”

Me: “Did you just propose to me?”

Boyfriend: “Yes.”

Me: “Well, I guess I accept then…”

(I gave him his ring a couple of months later, and we’re planning on getting married within a couple of years.)
