My boyfriend and I had been dating for six years. I was ready to get engaged and kept on bringing it up and then getting brushed off by him..He would take me away for weekends and to see the flowers up the west coast, and every time we did something of the sorts I would secretly hope that this was it, he was definately going to propose..

The week before the 12/12/2012 he went to Port Elizabeth on business, and was due home on Thursday 13th December. I fell sick on the 11th, and stayed home for two days. On the 12th I was lying on the couch watching tv, in my pajama’s, no make-up on, drenched in sweat and half high from medication. I heard the front door open but didnt think anything of it because my brother was home. Next thing my boyfriend walked into the room with a big bunch of roses. I was so suprised to see him home a day early and was angry with him for lying to me , because when i phoned that morning asking how his day was going, he was actually halfway home to me. He then asked if i wanted a suprise, and obviously, i said yes. He fell to his knees and opened a beautiful velvet box , only to reveal the most gorgeous, perfect engagement ring. I was so embarrassed because i looked so terrible, and then the tears just started to flow. They flowed so hard that both my conact lenses fell out of my eyes that i couldnt see him or the ring properly. He then rushed off to fetch my glasses (adding to my whole look) came back, and said “you havn’t actually said yes yet”. I said yes, and we were engaged on the 12th of the 12th, 2012.

You know its true love, and that you are the luckiest girl, when you look so terrible and he still thinks your the most beautiful girl in the world.

    Congratulations on your engagement.
    I know this is a competition, and that comments mean votes, but to me it is more than that.
    This is about marriage and the people who take that step. You have chosen this path, and my wish is that your relationship may be blessed.
    All the best for the big day – and every day of your journey together.

    True love indeed. Wishing you much happiness
