    You aren't going to get many who've actually done it here, a mate recently did and his are below.

    Sent her on a treasury hunt round New York, last stop was him in Central Park.
    No, she wouldn't want him to.
    They've been going out 6 years.
    He went to about 6 I think, but went to Dubai to get the ring.
    Yes, they talked about it ages ago.

    Each had a ring in a box for the other, went on a day-trip to the coast (had a picnic on the beach, explored the town, went to an art gallery) and the plan was that whoever saw the right moment first would be the one that actually proposed. He happened to and it was adorable. Then we went to an amazing concert.
    We didn't ask our parents, his parents are... kind of anti-marriage.
    We had been together just over 2 years.
    Many shops, in Glasgow and London. Most rings are quite ugly and too expensive. We both wanted a simple band of metal but with some decent weight on it, nothing flimsy. Surprisingly hard to find.
    Yes, I don't remember when it first came up, but it was a mutual decision we discussed.
    We still haven't started planning yet, it's been over 2 years now.
    We have moved in together, he got a new job, just recently had our first proper holiday together. Basically life, but as an engaged couple rather than a couple.

    I'm not sure whether it's worse that he took finance or that anyone has ever bought an engagement ring from H ****ing Samuel.

    Don't know why but that seems really weird to me. I've always thought a proposal should kinda be a surprise, otherwise people just generally agree to get married without a proposal.

    Yeah, it is unusual. We did a bit of both ways, even though I see why logically most people don't: No surprise, but still a planned proposal rather than a conversation that was accepted.

    I didn't think the 'actual' proposal would make any difference, because we both already knew so it was only a fun formality. I was very surprised at how powerful the whole thing was. I felt completely different the moment after it happened (ditto for him) in a way I couldn't have comprehended before. The unconscious and emotional mind is a mysterious thing.

    I don't think you're going to find many people who have proposed on a student website. I saw a real life proposal 2 years ago though. I was in the park and I saw a guy kneel down in front of a nice, pink blossom tree and propose to his girlfriend. She got emotional and started crying, but fortunately she said yes.
