    Another RJ member and I were chatting and we were rather curious to know how partnership/marriage proposals occur between men. How have you or would you like to propose, if ever? Does one person kneel? Are there rings involved?

    Proposals do happen! My Bf proposed to me last year in France. It was in our hotel room. It went down like this, I was getting out of the shower and he had a little baby blue box wrapped in white ribbon sitting on the bed with a bottle of wine and two glasses that we purchased earlier that day at a local cafe market. I opened it and found a beautiful ring. He proceeded to take the ring and slide it on my finger while on one knee against the bed. He then told me how much he loved me and that I bring him so much laughter and happyness, and would I marry him! Of course I said I have to think about it!!! Of course I said yes.

    He is such a great guy, I love him to death. FYI I met him here on RJ 4 years agoicon_biggrin.gif

    Does a sex proposal work? Because there was a lot of kneeling with that.

    If I get proposed to, I would like the ring to be covered in chocolate at some place really romantic.

    My boyfriend and I pretty much decided we were dating over memorial weekend when we were camping. We out at a lake, and there was a full harvest moon that rose over the trees on the other beach, and lit up the whole lake with this awesome orange light.

    We were standing there holding each other, and just kinda turned and looked into each others eyes.

    It wasn't until that following Tuesday that we made it official. He's a professional bassist, and after leaving a show where he got to talk to this awesome player from New York he mentioned how odd it was to introduce me, because clearly we were more than friends with benefits. We updated our Facebook pages together over martinis, and I've been crazy happy since icon_smile.gif.

    Who knows if/when a marriage proposal will come along... maybe after he graduates and before we move off to where ever he's going to start the next part of his career?

    My last boyfriend and I were walking home from a party. It was late summer and the night was beautiful. He just got on one knee, told me how important I was to him, and popped the question. We stayed engaged for five years before we broke up. Still, when I think about that night I get a little teary eyed.

    Though we are no longer together he is still the most important person in my life and that is a marriage of sorts.

    I'm glad you guys are posting these, I love reading ideas. I can't seem to come up with any that don't involve unrealistic timing (like the top of a ferris wheel) or obscene cost (like flying both of our families to Hawaii).

    Got a few ideas stewing, but I don't want to mention the ones at the top of the list because he might read thisicon_wink.gif

    We're having dinner and I excuse myself to use the restroom. I return and see a black velvety box from Tiffanys and I have that look on my face. He says.."open it"....and discover a platinum band that's inscripted within that says 'I Love You'.

    He then grabs my hand and says..."Marry me"....icon_razz.gif

    I've never even been lucky enough to have a relationship... or a boyfriend, (not for lack of trying...) how the hell can I even dream that a marriage is ever in my future... icon_sad.gif

    How can you not? Surrender nothing. You've created a home, a career, and are building a body that are all waiting for the moment - your moment. And it will come. He WILL come. Believe, you have no choice. Believe.

    The closest thing that i got to a proposal was from an ex...we were both in our senior year of college...it was x-mas and we were home from school. i went over his parents house as i had his gift...i walked into his room...he got all these candles from the dollar store (they were lit)...and it seemed like i caught him by surprise..anyways he said to me "babe i have your gift....weve been together for a year and i think we should get more serious", i said ok.. now im a very sappy type and believe in romance and quite sensitive to the issue so i started getting excited as i thought finally hes coming around..anyways i saw the wrapped box and i still have it...opened the box..thought it was something that would symbolize that yes we are officially together.............it was an ipod Nano .......................with my fav artistes on it...thats the closest proposal i ever got. still have the nano too.

    Okay...so here's the story of me and my ex.
    We spoke on the phone for two nights in a row, having met through a personal ad in a local NYC gay bar magazine (this is pre WWW).
    We actually fell in love, on the phone. The first night we talked for about three and a half hours. The next day he dropped off a dozen white roses to my office, and then bolted before I could come up to the desk to get them. The card held a teeeeeny picture of him - cut from a proof sheet of his head shots - and a note saying simply "XO". When the receptionist asked me who the guy was who dropped them off "He's hot!" I said, without thinking, "oh, I'm going to marry him."
    The next night we spoke for a record five hours - from six p.m. until just after 11. I'd insisted on meeting on a Wednesday, a short work day for me, giving me time to get home, shower, shave, and be rested and looking better than haggard from work.
    So on the third night we made a plan to meet for dinner, in person at last. I had purchased a grocery bag full of rose petals, and bought a small Xmas ornament of the Sun, Moon and Stars (we met ten days before Christmas) I got to our meeting spot early, a street in the West Village, across from one of my favorite restaurants. I left a trail of rose petals from the corner down to the spot where I was standing, tucked into a portico to stay out of the cold wind.
    He came around the corner and I swear, upon seeing him the feeling was "oh, so THERE you are, where have you been all this time?" A familiar excited relief. It was amazing.
    I gave him the gift, saying - "here, it's a kind of IOU...the sun moon and stars". Then we kissed, standing in a pile of rose petals in the cold of NYC in December, for about a half an hour.
    We went to dinner, and I spent 50% of the time in the bathroom because I was so nervous that I had to pee every ten minutes LOL
    Anyway, we ate, had a great dinner, strolled the Village in the cold, cuddled close and kissing at every possible chance to duck into a doorway or culdesac.
    We arrived at his apartment in Chelsea shortly before midnight. It was a very small one-room efficiency with a a loft bed in it. He had strung twine from one corner of the room to the upper deck of the loft bed, and had hand cut out fold-over letters that spelled out "R**** I WILL LOVE YOU FOREVER". When we moved to Los Angeles three years later the thumbtack holding up the twine in the corner was the last thing we took down, and the first thing we put up in the new apartment in L.A. It was the last thing we took down in L.A. and somehow never got around to putting up when we moved to Florida.

    He will love me, forever. And I him. But nothing could keep us together as a couple - and God how we tried. What happened happened. I have no idea what I'll find next. No idea. But I'll always have this and a box of dried white roses with the first picture I ever saw of him.

    That CTA Love Story on Youtube surely could have gone awry...but it was sweet and landed softly and beautifully.

    Thanks for posting!
