Before they moved in together, they had talked about getting married. She was 100% sure that he was the right one. Once they did live together, she was 110% sure. It was even better than she imagined. Of course there were bumps as they got used to living in each other’s space day in and day out. But nothing major. He was just as great when she lived with him 24/7 as he was when they spent time together on the weekends. Phew.
After almost 2 years of dating, and almost a year of living together, they went to Myrtle Beach with his family. His whole family—Mom, Dad, Grandma, 9-months pregnant Sister, Brother-in-law and Nephew. They all drove down separately and He and She stopped for an overnight in Charlotte.
They spent the day swimming in the hotel pool and then were getting ready to go out to dinner. She was in the middle of blow drying her hair when she looked and saw him standing behind her with a huge smile on his face. She turned off the blow dryer and said “What?”
He pulled out a black box from behind his back and said “I promise to love you for the rest of my life. I’ve never loved anyone like I love you. Will you love me forever too and marry me?”
She, of course, said yes.
And while it may not seem the most romantic of proposals, it was pure Him. Very sweet, very intimate, very Them.
She slipped the beautiful ring on her finger, gave him a big hug and a kiss, and finished drying her hair.
