How did you two meet?
We met through a mutual friend at a get together while I was in college at NC State. Gino was active in the Marine Corps and stationed in Camp Lejeune in NC and he would come to visit me in Raleigh on weekends.
How did s/he pop the question?
We went to Atlantic Beach for the weekend, driving 5 hours from Charlotte to get there. It was late and dark when we arrived and dark but Gino insisted we take a walk on the beach, so I went along with it. It was his birthday and he asked if he could have one more gift - then got down on his knee in the water and asked me to say yes to marrying him. He had the exact ring I wanted, and it was in a box with a light in it so I could see it in the dark.
Any advice on the perfect proposal? Just tailor it to the person you are proposing to. My hopes for my own proposal were that we would be alone, I would be surprised by the proposal and that he would have a ring I liked. All of those criteria were met so I considered mine the perfect proposal for me.
How long have you two been together?
