so when is it Drew's turn?
2002-02-14 11:24:01 AM  
Would've been a bummer had she missed that article.

2002-02-14 11:24:27 AM  
I'm already married
2002-02-14 11:24:30 AM  
blah who the hell cares
2002-02-14 11:25:03 AM  
Ah, I was going to try posting this link... well, it's a strange one. How many girlfriends have ever heard of /.?
2002-02-14 11:25:04 AM  
What a cheap bastard, no dinner, no ring, no guts! I suppose if she had said no, he would have said it was a fake post! Be a man, get down on your knee and take your medicine.

2002-02-14 11:27:34 AM  
I bet she can't wait to tell her grandkids how she got proposed to in geekville central.
2002-02-14 11:28:00 AM  
My answer is yes.
I sent him an email saying so.

2002-02-14 11:28:12 AM  
Oh No! Geeks may reproduce! Somebody DO something!....
2002-02-14 11:29:06 AM  

What if she was an AI engine?
2002-02-14 11:29:54 AM  
Who needs a honeymoon -- just fire up Quake 3 Arena and they'll FRAG each others brains out.
2002-02-14 11:32:47 AM  
I bet that girl he's asking is fat.
2002-02-14 11:33:11 AM  
Someone dig up a picture of the girl already. Is she hot or a geek?
2002-02-14 11:33:11 AM  

Have you ever heard of a woman turning down a guy who goes all public with a marriage proposal?

What usually happens is the girl breaks up with the guy in private.

But if it's legit, may God's blessing come upon them, even if I don't really dig /.

No matter what, Fb- will be the father of their children.
2002-02-14 11:34:02 AM  
I dunno about you guys... but considering the guy OWNS and runs Slashdot, it's the most perfect thing he could do...

Damn this is sweet... On the other hand, if I proposed to a girl on my blog, chances are she'd never find it out and my mom would freak out! Hahahaha...
2002-02-14 11:35:22 AM  

ust like on Who wants to marry a Milionare. You could tell that chick didn't want to kiss him, but she didn't turn away on TV, did she? Guys, when in doubt, ask in public!
2002-02-14 11:35:38 AM  
Please God, I don't ask for much, but give Kathleen Fent the intelligence (if only for this once) to see this guy for what he is: A FARKING LOSER!!!!!

Why no propose the right way, by sending her an ICQ message filled with a proposal and emoticons. ;-P

God this world is full of idiots.
2002-02-14 11:36:29 AM  
My wife would kill me, literally kill me if I proposed to her on my web site. She wanted romance, not HTML tricks... But to each geek his own...
2002-02-14 11:37:29 AM

Yes. A few months back during a San Diego Padres Games. In the back of the stadium, the guy proposed to his girlfriend on national TV and she walked away with that guy still on his knees.
2002-02-14 11:37:45 AM  
She's got a big pussy.

2002-02-14 11:37:55 AM

I can't decide whether I find this incredibly cool or awesomely pathetic.
2002-02-14 11:38:17 AM  
I proposed to my wife the correct way (on one knee with a ring in my hand), but we actually met on AOL years ago. We chattd for a bit, then she invited me to a chat gathering. She never expected me to show up, but I did. We ended up making out in the parking lot for two hours before the night was over. She is now my best friend and my life mate.

What the hell am I on about???

2002-02-14 11:38:37 AM  
Further proof that there is someone for everyone. Unfortunately.

Hey! we can see 18% of a boobie!
2002-02-14 11:41:02 AM  
The moderations to this "article" on /. are amusing at least. 27 fives as of now. So they're gonna post another article after the honeymoon?
2002-02-14 11:41:10 AM  
That girl = DSL
2002-02-14 11:42:15 AM  
This guy is about as romantic as prison rape...
2002-02-14 11:42:20 AM  
That girl = DSL

i'ld be careful about that... especially with them big ass teeth.
2002-02-14 11:42:21 AM  
Don't do it, girlfriend! Because one day you'll wake up, Nerdlinger will be gone, and her laptop will be beside her in bed, pointing to her new home page.

That's Geek Romance for you.
2002-02-14 11:42:27 AM  
Wow. Another sucker. I've got my really interested face on.

I didn't know he was a practicing Christian.
2002-02-14 11:43:15 AM  
I'd do her. She's got that "girl-next-door-but-I-can-still-fark-your-brains-out" look. Nice boobies too.
2002-02-14 11:43:57 AM  
Digitaldevil: "Just like on Who wants to marry a Milionare. You could tell that chick didn't want to kiss him, but she didn't turn away on TV, did she? Guys, when in doubt, ask in public!"

And to think Darva Conger was being seen as about the only girl taking the whole thing seriously ... from what I've read, just about all the girls there viewed the thing as a free vacation to Vegas.

Cioxx: "Yes. A few months back during a San Diego Padres Games. In the back of the stadium, the guy proposed to his girlfriend on national TV and she walked away with that guy still on his knees."

Damn, that's cold. Some girls might be embarrassed and/or resentful that they are put on the line like that.

I've always followed the approach of "never ask a girl out for a date until you've already kissed her." Once she has made that physical committment (no I'm not necessarily talking sex here), she is more likely to be willing to do things with you.

Now just me:

For me there wasn't so much a formal marriage proposal as it was just something my wife and I knew would happen since the 10-week point in our relationship.

Marriage is not supposed to replace all of your same-sex friends, and the remainder of your social calendar, either. Too many people expect it to serve as too many things these days. And that, I think, is a major factor in why divorce rates are so damned high.

She has that "Try not to suck any dick on your way through the parking lot" kinda look to me.
2002-02-14 11:44:43 AM  
2002-02-14 11:46:20 AM  
I agree with you Shawn.

I hope these two became friends before has proposed. No matter how much chrome she can suck off of a trailer-hitch, if you aren't frinds it won't last.
2002-02-14 11:46:30 AM  
Worst proposal ever.
2002-02-14 11:47:25 AM  
LOL @ Fb-.

Yeah, I can see that.
2002-02-14 11:49:42 AM  
Knowing the kind of stuff that goes on at slashdot, I was expecting:

1) Four spelling errors.
2) Duplication of the proposal he made 2 days ago.
3) Poor research - asking some girl he doesn't even know instead of his girlfriend.

Oh well, maybe timothy or michael will say something stupid and I can laugh at that instead.
2002-02-14 11:50:28 AM  
A post, live from slashdot.

Dude, this is so farking lame, its not even funny. She's going to call up her mom...

Kathleen: "Mom, Rob proposed!!"
Mom: "GREAT!!! How big is the ring??"
Kathleen: "Uhm... Well... There isn't a ring.."
Mom: "Oh..... I see... How did he propose?"
Kathleen: "Well.. It was on his website."
Mom: "Run. Run Like Hell. Don't look back."
2002-02-14 11:51:38 AM  
Drew's married?
2002-02-14 11:52:36 AM  
That is cool. Congratulations Commander Taco.
2002-02-14 11:53:40 AM  
The ring is 640x480.
