My proposal didn't go so well either.

At the end of our first date we had gone to Friendly's.  The Mr. Cone Head ice cream sundae was something she loved from her childhood and ordered it whenever we went there.  I had tipped the waitress $20 to bring the sundae out with the ring sitting on top of the cone.  The plan was going smoothly, but soon-to-be fiance hadn't noticed the ring.  She was rambling on and on about something that had gone on at work that day and was slowly eating the icecream around the bowl.  The suspense was killing me, I began to sweat wondering when she would notice a damned ring sitting on top of her cone.   The waitress had come back over to see how the proposal went.  During the distraction my future fiance had picked the cone up and taken a bite.   It took 3 days for her to pass the ring.  Later she said the ring was "shiatty" and that she wished I got her something better.

doubled99: Would love to add snarky comment however I found myself in this exact situation a few years ago. Proposed in an intimate spot, but could tell later she wasn't happy. Confided in me hours later she didn't like the ring, and was disappointed because she wanted a big public spectacle, which I definitely wasn't into. She didn't biatch me out, but freely expressed her dismay. I had such a confused jumble of emotions I didn't really know how to react at the time.

My grandmother gave me her engagement ring, which was also my great-grandmother's: a big ass solitaire in a broken platinum setting. Then my mom gave me her ring and I used a few tiny diamonds from that and had a new setting made. My girlfriend liked the ring even more after she found out I didn't pay full retail for the ring. She calls her ring "the family jewels." She's a keeper.

Real Women Drink Akvavit: I asked a guy out on a date a couple years ago. He said "yes" and looked happy and amused, but the possibility of rejection was nearly paralyzing. Knowing how hard THAT was, if a guy I had been dating for a gazillion whatevers decided to pass a note with "will you marry me? check 'yes' or 'no'" through one of his friends, I'd be impressed he had the stones to ask at all. When the roles are reversed, even once, you tend to appreciate the effort a whole lot more.


Yup.  Thing is, as guys we are expected to do that all the time.
Women are always talking about wanting a confident guy, but at least you apparently know what it does to your confidence levels to ask someone you actually genuinely like out.  Now, imagine you got turned down.  Now do that several dozen times, over and over and over.

Welcome to being a guy.

Women wonder why we end up treating dates like meat?  Its a self defense mechanism.  You can't treat first dates like people, because its way too much of an emotional investment for someone you'll probably never see again.

We treat women in general like meat because its the only way we avoid walking around as soul shattered husks of disappointment.

I did it on the roof of the Rockefeller Center. Was pretty quiet that night, which suited me fine.

Going through security before we went up there, the ring set off the metal detector. The screener who wanted to wand me would've definitely ruined the surprise, but one of the other guys came over and said "hang on, it's probably just his jacket" and asked me to pass it through the X-ray machine. He saw what was in the pocket and handed it back with a wink and "Yeah, it was just the jacket." and let us through.

I can't stand when a guy makes a public display out of the proposal, or when they do that generic bullshiat like a hot air balloon ride with "Will You Marry Me?" spelled out on the ground.  I proposed to my wife in our bedroom.  She was in the shower, and I went in her jewelry box and replaced this ring I had gotten her when we were dating as kids (It had both our birthstones, and she wore it every day) with the engagement ring.  I hung out in the bedroom while she came out and was getting ready, which almost gave away the game, since I never do that.  Anyhow, she got to the jewelry portion of her routine, and opened her jewelry box and grabbed the ring.  She had it halfway on her finger before it hit her.  She started crying, and I asked her to marry me.  I didn't get down on one knee, just held her hand and told her I loved her.  She has told me countless times since that she couldn't imagine a better proposal.  We've got our 7 year anniversary coming up in a few months, and one healthy baby boy.  Life is good.

Fark's interface with Skynet (SkyFark? Farknet?) has evolved over the years. In the beginning, it was mostly poop jokes, memes, and "accidental" crude photos. It has now adapted to user response enough to deftly weave snarky commentary and hilarious narrative into the best of humor.

varmitydog: The former Kate Middleton's famous blue sapphire oval cut engagement ring was the firm favourite of 11 per centof the women polled

Hey, that's the same type of engagement ring I gave my wife, thirty years ago. I was poor and was going to get a cheap ring and my aunt found out about it and made me take it back, giving me the ring my grandfather gave my grandmother when he came back from WWI. Said it was a love gift and it would bring me luck. I lucked out since my wife considers it a treasured family heirloom. /Nice to see that those royal limey f*ckers have the same good taste as my grandpappy.

Blue sapphires stand for trust, loyalty, and fidelity, which sounds more like what you want in a marriage than just "forever." And, according to an article I read, royals used to use them for engagement/wedding rings all the time, back in the day.

Sounds like you and your grandfather have wonderful taste. Congratulations on finding such a wonderful Lady.


What a nice thing to say, thank you. I actually didn't have a whole lot to do with it, my wife had helped my aunt, mom and sister prepare a Thanksgiving dinner and so charmed my aunt in that one meeting that she decided that this was the woman I should marry, and she took it upon herself to make it happen ("Hey aunt Julie, how are you?" "Have you married that girl yet? What's wrong with you, then?"). When I told her I got a ring she drove 200 miles to see it right away, looked at it like it was a turd and proclaimed "this will never do" which made me feel knee high to a grasshopper.

And my aunt was right, of course. Both about the ring and the woman.

This being Fark of course I didnt RTFA but in the interest of SCIENCE they should have cross questioned them as to the "happiness" of their marriage.

I would assume that having a good marriage and being happy would vastly outshine a mediocre proposal but you'd never know.  If there was a strong enough correlation between "happy with proposal" and "happy with marriage" maybe you could give your brand new fiance a likert scale questionaire a day or two after the proposal and find out if you are, in fact, doomed to an eventual divorce because your fiance is a vapid twat.

I did end up surprising Mrs. Homely, but there were enough good vibes to make me feel safe about doing so.  We were lying in bed in the morning having a conversation, and I steered it to "What could I say to get you to run away from me?"  After a couple of ridiculous suppositions (I run off with a cheerleading squad, decide to get a sex change, etc.), I proposed.  After the initial surprise wore off, she enthusiastically said Yes.  Then we proceeded to have morning happy time...

This was done with no ring (she knows jewelry better than me), but with the understanding that we would pick one out.  She got what she wanted in a ring, while I got to maintain some sanity (and keep the budget from going sky high).  She loves the ring she has, but also understands and agrees that our relationship is far more than a piece of jewelry.

I suppose that each person has their motivations, but if it is all about "stuff", then you're better off to just write out a check and bid them a good day.  If, however, it is all about something you have between you, then no symbol will ever be enough to truly signify the meaning behind it.  As long as we can look into each other's eyes and still feel the same as (or even better than) we did back then, I believe that we'll do just fine.

4 years so far, plus a little over a year with Little Homely, so I can't complain...

My husband told me he found a ring on the floor of our apartment.

I was about 7 or 8 months pregnant, laying on the floor - half under the bed, trying to rearange things to fit the child into our 700 sq foot one bedroom apartment.

I was instantly pissed - what do you mean you found a ring on the floor ?! That's not mine! So - what other woman has been in our bedroom?!

Still waited another 2 years to get married. Wasn't that important.

Also - when we told my mother in law, she said .. " I hope your sure. You know what judge Judy says - you can't ask for it back after you give it to her. (Yes - I was sitting there and yes - MIL is a sow)

We had been together over 5 years by the time any of this happened, but still..

I wanted to propose in a way that was different, romantic (in it's own way) and memorable.  I didn't want to look back in regret that I didn't TRY to do something different.  It was in private and I don't think she forgot it.  She might have thought of a different presentation, but she won't forget and she probably smiles about it a little even today - look back with a smile. I think you should know your intended bride well enough to understand what you and she will look back on 40 years down the road and consider accordingly.  20% dissatisfied seems low.

We had been ring shopping and she knew it was coming - but I had hinted that it would be on Valentine's Day. A few days before that I arranged for my brother to need me to come down to Grand Central Terminal to pick something up from him - right before the station closed for the night. I asked her to marry me in a near-empty GCT with my brother there taking pictures. She loved the proposal and a picture of it is one of the first things you see coming into our apartment.

When my husband proposed, he'd been planning a big surprise but got too nervous, so he just came into the room where I was, pulled out the box and asked me.  I had no idea it was coming, since we'd only been dating a few months.  I didn't even really look at the ring, I just said yes and put it on, and much happy private time ensued.

Much later, he told me when he'd proposed to his first wife, he'd taken her out for dinner and had the waiter slip the ring onto her dessert plate.  He said when the plate came, she looked at the ring, picked it up and stared at it for a second, wrinkled her nose and said, "What is this?" He said, "It's an engagement ring.  Will you marry me?"  She said, "Oh."  Then she ate her dessert.

/years later I told him it was the most expensive piece of jewelry I'd ever owned, and I would've been just as satisfied with something smaller.  He said, "NOW you tell me."

I wouldn't change my proposal story for the world.

We'd planned to go to dinner but I got sick that night (our 5-year anniversary). So I stayed home while he went out for take-out from the restaurant, and when I woke up from a nap, he'd set up dinner in the dining room with candles and everything. When I asked what had taken him so long (he'd left like 2 hours before), he held out a ring box and asked me to marry him.

He'd taken so long because he was getting me a ring at the arcade in the mall, a little toy one as a placeholder because we were so broke (we were 21 at the time). I still have it and it's so adorable.

I'm no Pocket Ninja, but let me take a stab at this.  The Daily Mail website is notorious for ad agency funded "studies" that seek to instigate reaction for the purpose of 1) Getting website hits for the Daily Mail and 2) Getting people to talk about their product, service, or political ideology that they're pushing at the moment.

They count on the fact that people are too stupid to realize that they're being played.  It's clearly working as it seems Fark.com greenlighters happily fall into the advertising machine.

TLDR version.  This isn't a real study, it's an ad to sell diamonds/wedding services/divorce services.  It's aimed low, demonizing the stupid, prey on the base emotions.

So 1 in 5 women are vapid selfish whores. Sounds about right.

My husband proposed on a beach at sunrise in the Keys and got the exact ring I wanted. I was clueless about all his question asking on ring taste because we had only dated for 8 months before and I thought "nah, he can't be thinking of marriage. He is just curious!" I was so shocked and happy I don't even really remember the proposal.

I haven't worn my diamond in about 2 years though. I work a lot inside computers and the band was getting scratched to hell, so I bought a $15 cheap stainless steel band. My husband doesn't where is tanzanite band either and has a cheap band as well. Both ring as in the safety deposit box and only come out for special occassions.

I still love more than anything so when women get all bent out of shape about their rings I never understand it. I've even had women openly sneer at my cheap ring and say I was making a mockery of marriage. Honey, if the worth of your marriage is dependent on some metal and stone you have farked up priorities and are a terrible human being.

dragonchild: ThatDarkFellow: Do you ever sleep or are you a fixture just sort of built into the website

Excuse me. . . are you actually trying to find something out about a ninja?

As for me proposing to my wife, she was moved to tears. . . it took until about the third or fourth blow to the head before she was finally limp enough to drag back to my cave.  I did give her a shiny rock, though.


Was it the same one you hit her with?
I hope it was, 'cause chicks dig sentimental shiat like that.

Lets talk frankly about internal cleanliness: Epic Fap Session: darkjezter: Proposing to a woman in front of an audience has always seemed like kind of an asshole move to me.  It puts her on the spot and makes her too embarrassed to say no.

I proposed two weeks ago. We were with 7 of our friends in public. I figured after living together for the last 3 years and considering we'd already chosen a wedding date, I was not too worried about her answer or coercion due to the presence of our friends. She never saw the ring beforehand either. She just told me she trusted my taste.

I know, right? What kind of narcissistic asshole posts an engagement story in a thread like this?

Answer: The kind with a happy fiancé.

Eh. My wife loved ours. In private, complete surprise. She always said she had public proposals. And I had her convinced that I wouldn't propose for another two years.

Plus, for weeks I was secretly testing her ring finger size, comparing it to different things so I could get the size right. You know how difficult it is to do that without her asking questions? It takes a lot of work to be subtle. And no, I couldn't ask her mom; her mother can't keep a secret to save her life.

A new survey has revealed that 21 per cent of engaged, married or divorced women were left disappointed by their marriage proposal, but they didn't say anything to their other half and now wished they had.


Gee, if only I'd ridiculed him about his proposal, our relationship would be stronger, we'd both make more money, our teeth would be whiter, and his hair would be thicker.

Real Women Drink Akvavit: I asked a guy out on a date a couple years ago. He said "yes" and looked happy and amused, but the possibility of rejection was nearly paralyzing. Knowing how hard THAT was, if a guy I had been dating for a gazillion whatevers decided to pass a note with "will you marry me? check 'yes' or 'no'" through one of his friends, I'd be impressed he had the stones to ask at all. When the roles are reversed, even once, you tend to appreciate the effort a whole lot more.


You're OK in my book.
And I actually carry a book.

It's a shared account between 4 or 5 people who take shifts posting under the username. That's why the quality of the posts varies throughout the day.


That makes perfect sense but I thought that was frowned upon by the site.

It is a classic no-win situation.  You can buy her a ring and have a wonderful surprise proposal, but the odds of her liking the ring or it fitting perfectly are not great.  Alternatively you can take her ring shopping, but that kills the surprise proposal.

The only winning move is not to play.
