For me thinking of the right way to propose was a lot of work. I wanted to make it special and unique to our relationship. However, after doing this gig for years, I have found that a lot of other people think they have a good idea and then BOOM … epic fail.

TEXT QUESTION OF THE DAY:
What's the worst way you ever have heard of someone popping the question?

  • My husband bought me a $5 from top hatter bidding sit and we were driving around town running errands and he takes the ring out of his center console in the car and says "try this on to see if it fits" so i do and it fit and he says " its more than just a ring" lol wasnt exactly how i pictured i would get engaged
  • New Years Eve going into 2019. I was pregnant with our 4th kid. He was plastered. Came over to where I was sitting and slurred out "let's get married" as he hands me a glowstick to use as a "ring" for the picture still engaged, but no date set because of Covid though. And he bought me a silicone band because my hands are sensitive to metals
  • Coming in during a shower with a ring she paid for.
  • He was waiting with the ring as I came out of the bathroom.
  • Wasnt the worst.. My husband asked me by saying, "So, do you want to?"
  • My soon to be ex husband broke up with me in a really nasty e-mail (after dating 3.5 yrs) and then 3 days later begged for me to come back to him. I really didn't trust him, so he said well we can get married... so a few months later we did and it lasted officially 10 yrs...
  • Just handed me the ring. Married 33yrs
  • We talked marriage a lot. She helped pick out the ring. Took her to a nice dinner and a classical music concert. "Are you ready for this?" as I held out the ring. I could have done better. Oh, and unless you are going to keep your diamond perfectly clean, get the larger stone with a few imperfections.
  • Picture this. Lol I have always wanted to say that. Thank you Golden Girls. 1999. In Labor with our son and he says I think we should get married and puts a ring on my finger. Been married 20 years now.
  • My dad took my mom night crawler hunting then they walked into his room, didn't turn a light on, and he handed her a box in the dark. She ran and turned the light on and they have been married over 30 years
  • My husband handed me my engagement ring and said “Are you going to wear this thing or what?” We’ve been married 20 years.
  • Popping the question but once she started telling people about it it changed to only a promise ring....should've ran while she had the chance then
  • My ex fiance asked me to marry him while we were laying on his bed, no ring or anything, and I told him I wanted the real deal (because I'm a hopeless romantic!). A few days later he suddenly had a ring in his hand, told his sister she needed to go with so she could take pictures, and I was proposed to on a random mound of sand. Things didn't last much longer after that lol
  • We went and picked out the ring. He said it will be a surprise. Not. He still lived with his folks so when we got home he made them go to the basement. He brought me jello with the ring in it. Well...yes I guess. It will be 17 years this year.
  • My husband was like so are we going to the married thing.. I guess I said we have been married 13 years
  • Actually seeing mine play out was the worst. I proposed where we met...on the Holland State Park pier in March...in 30 degree temps...in gusty winds...with breaking ice caps... Her first response was, “You’re joking right???” She did finally say “Yes, now can we get out of here?” 21 years later, we’re still here...
  • In the early 2000s a friend of a friend was dating a woman (they were in their 30s)......and was going to spend xmas with her family. On xmas eve everyone in her family was gathered, he had everyone close their eyes. When he asked them to open their eyes, he was on one knee in front of his gf......with a ring......that he made out of a hose clamp with a piece of pea gravel glued to it. He was joking and didn’t understand why no one else thought it was funny. She dumped him shortly after (big surprise...)
  • My now ex husband, I bet him to winning a game of mancala; I won he gave me his moms ring in the kitchen. No one else saw.. only made it 8 years before he asked for a divorce. Met someone fast and got her pregnant and is now engaged a year and 4 months later

  • Was out with friends at a bar and a guy and girl were screaming at each other. He got down on one knee in the middle of it all and said "b*tch will ya marry me?" He made that fight last way longer than needed. He got hauled away by the cops and it was a resounding "no"!
  • Fell head over heels for my now hubby. We knew we would eventually get married but I got pregnant and health insurance was an issue. He still did an amazing job on the proposal and I love him more than life.

  • It wasn't the proposal so much as me receiving the ring - we picked it up and went to dinner. AS HE WAS GIVING ME THE RING, our waitress came and just plopped our food on the table. Like, blatantly ignored the ring being presented (which COULD have been the proposal, I'm just saying)
  • My friend was proposed like this: while they are in bed, sitting there waking up, showed a ring and said “wanna?”. Notice I didn’t say husband.
  • Our family was out to dinner pre Covid. There was one other couple there in a booth. The gentleman stands up and says “your going to kill me for this” as he’s getting on his knee and pulling a ring out of his pocket.

  • I technically got asked by a monkey. My husband went to build a bear, got one of their monkeys and put a recording of him saying, “Can I steal you away forever?”. The monkey wasn’t even down on one knee. In his defense, he had to rush to think of how to propose because I wanted to be engaged before my grandpa passed away. We have been married 12 and a half years now so the proposal must not have been that bad....
  • My husband was looking over his taxes and the married versus single situation and decided it would benefit him. So he asked me to marry him

  • My girlfriend loves strawberry cheesecake. So when the time came I had cut her a slice and put the ring right on top. Came back to the couch, and before I could say anything she took a bite with the ring on it..... and because she was watching Downton Abbey, totally bit into the ring, cracking 3 teeth and cutting her lip. She started bleeding instantly and we had to go to the ER. When we got home she went to bed, I grabbed the bloody cheesecake plate and took the ring back. She never knew.....
