(My boyfriend and I have been together for 4 years. I have repeatedly told him I don’t want to get married again. It is a sore spot for him, but he has finally let it go. One day, I catch myself looking at wedding rings in the mall and I find one I like. It hits me like a freight train that I am ready to get married again, because I never look at or buy jewellery. I try the ring on, and it fits.)

Me: *calling him from the mall* “Hey. Do you still want to marry me?”

Boyfriend: “Uh…yeah?”

Me: “I’m at [store]. Get down here.”

(He shows up in under ten minutes. He looks confused, but doesn’t say a word. I tell the sales girl we’d take the ring I tried on. After he pays for it, she tries to box it up. He still hasn’t said a word at this point, when he shakes his head.)

Boyfriend: *to the sales clerk* “No, just hand it to me.”

(He turns to me and holds out the ring, then speaks with almost zero emotion.)

Boyfriend: “Will you marry me?”

Me: “Yup.” *he puts it on my finger* “Thanks.”

(My phone rings, it’s my mum.)

Mum: “What are you up to?”

Me: “Logan just proposed.”

Mum: “What? I just spoke to him ten minutes ago and he never said a word!”

Me: “I know. He didn’t know then.”

(It hits him then, and he has the biggest smile ever for the rest of the day.)
