    Default *Gulp* Wish me luck!!

    After 2 weeks of dating I knew she was the one. Now, almost 2 years later, I'm going to take the next step and ask her to marry me! We've our 'spot' on Coronado island here in San Diego and I'll pop the question during the fireworks. Man, I'm getting nervous!

    Wish me luck!

    2 weeks and you knew and it took you 2 years to ask? What were you thinking?

    Good Luck!!!

    Congratulations and the best of luck!!

    I asked my girl 2 years ago under a full moon with a bunch of cows as our only witnesses... She said yes, but we still have to set a date... Moving to a new appartment (we had to leave our old houseboat as it was going to be demolished) drained up our wedding fund... I hope you won't run into those kind of issues

    Thanks ya'll.

    In fact, I'll bring my NextTorch Saint HID to see if I can light the opposing shoreline up! Here's the view from our spot:

    God bless and I pray that you both love each other enough to always treat each other with love and respect. And remember to always make decisions together, unless she says otherwise.

    Congrats Man! The day I proposed has been the best day of my life so far, I hope it goes the same for you.

    Dont do like me, I had my HDS U60 XRGT in the same pocket as the ring box. So it took some fumbling around to pull it out of my pocket!

    So put the ring box in the OPPOSITE pocket as your EDC.

    Get her a Ti Bezel Ring.

    What cut is that diamond?

    PS - I politely disagree with GreenLED on half of the argument. Never, ever go anywhere without a light. Don't leave it at home. No. Don't play with it when you should be experiencing one of the moments of a lifetime, but don't leave it at home.. What if she dropped it? You'd have to be able to look for it, right? Just leave the light in your pocket, and don't remove it unless it's an emergency..

    Good luck and best wishes. Think of it as acquiring a new light........the light of your life.

    Great ring, by the way.

    Arkayne,

    Good luck! Hopefully she won't be able to turn you, or that ring down!

    Let us know what happens!

    Thanks for the best wishes guys! 24 hours left!

    A Ti Bezel Ring.... I like that idea!! I'll keep the A2 in the backpack just in case I drop it in the grass. I may be calm now but who knows what'll happen when crunch time comes.

    Good luck from me as well. The last guy who posted a similar proposal story as yours got an acceptance so I hope the same occurs for you.

    My girlfriend immediately lost the LOP I gave her so I will hold off proposing until she becomes more responsible about such things!

    You go Arkayne! Today's the day!

    BTW my only advice: don't listen to advice. Be you. Down in there you always know.

    Good luck and all the best!

    SHE SAID YESSSSS!!!!

    She was "shoosh"ing me when I started saying my speech because she was so into the fireworks but soon stared at me wide eyed and open jawed and started to cry as it hit her as to what was happening. It was a total surprise and she had no idea tonight was the night.

    The last 5 minutes of the fireworks show over San Diego Bay was magical! Thanks for the support!



    note: I have to get it sized because it's a tad bit small. Regardless, she shoved that thing on like there was no tomorrow!
