He sounds like such a good guy. Patient, yet persistent. A good combination!

What if we woke up tomorrow with only those things that we thanked God for today?

The days of poetry are very romantic. Not many men will do that.

My husband and I before marriage use to walk around a small lake and feed the ducks. One day we walked on the pier and he got down on his knees and proposed. It was so beautiful and I said yes, then later changed my mind. His persistance paid off. It took years but we have nine years of marriage as of last Monday.

The possibilities always outnumber the problems.

This isnt a romantic engagement story but it still worked emoticon , Was in my bedroom, we were just chatting and such, i asked him if he could read a poem for me, as he did write poetry to woo me. He choose to read an proposal poem, he handed me the ring. Titatinum and white gold. Then we had an awesome dinner with each other.

We each have our foibles, right?

Congrats on the 32 years!

That's quite the story!

Glad he decided to call, despite the pants mishap.

This isn't an engagement story but how I made an "impression" on my hubby.

I was friends with a guy who went to my hubby's high school. I wanted to participate in their musical, so I volunteered to play in the pit orchestra. They had no strings, so I brought 2 friends. Anyway Tim played trombone in the band. I played violin.

During an intermission, I was off visiting with a friend. When I returned to the pit, Tim was taking a drink from his thermos. I asked if I could have one. He handed me the thermos cup, but being the clutz that I am, I dropped it in his lap. He sat through the second act with wet pants.

Imagine my surprise when he called me for a date a couple of weeks later!!!
