It's a tough, fine line to navigate. One that I'm going to try to not fail at tonight.

Perfect timing for all this relationship talk.

After almost 10 years, I'm finally going to pop the question, just got the ring today.

We've been together for almost a decade, and I'm still completely terrified...

Although I can't say that I've been in that situation, being terrified sounds natural simply because it's a big step in life. As long as you know that she's the one, then go for it.

What's the ring look like? Yeah, I'm totally a girl.

Ugh... I knew someone would ask.

I've got so many really average ideas bouncing around. Nothing really stands out except for something involving WA Frost.

We had the unquestionable best meal of our lives and one of the most fun nights out ever there. Plus, her aunt works there, so the insane prices may end up being slightly less insane.

I dunno, though. I'm a really unoriginal guy, and I hate all the cliche sort of stuff.

If that isn't it, it's damn close.

I think it's a white gold ring, this one's platinum. Otherwise, it's dead on.

Very simple, but it's what she picked out.

Our first date was greasy pizza at Carbonne's in West Saint Paul.

It would certainly be easy to do, and Carbonne's is pretty tasty... That's better than anything I've thought up myself.

Hmmmmmm.....

Stunning! So you guys went ring shopping together, or did she simply hint at it?

That's what I would do, Then have them bring out the ring with some sort of dessert.
Then mention something like, this is where we started dating. This is where we will start the next step of our lives together.

We went shopping a few months ago. She picked out something similar to that.

Well I've got the perfect way to ask her.

What you do is get two tickets to a Twins game in the seats just on top of the right field wall but under the upper deck. Then when Morneau is up to bat you have him call his shot and point right at your fiance. The pitch comes in and Morneau smacks the ball deep to right field. You jump up and make a miraculous catch to rob the little kid behind you from getting the homerun ball and then the little kid starts crying only to have his father slap him and tell him to shut up. The only thing is that it's not a real baseball, but rather a phony ball that you can break open by sliding a small button to the right. You open it up, take out the ring from inside it, and get down on one knee. Then when she says yes, you have a group of people in the deck above you dump confetti and sparkles all over you two.

It all seems pretty easy and inexpensive to set up if you ask me.

Sorry to spoil the wedding mood, but today I was bored and decided to watch the 4 twilight movies that are out, with Rifftrax commentary to keep me sane/entertained. I can now definitively say that that is a god awful movie series. Just....my god so bad.

i wish you luck, man. I guess i would have been nervous if I had been plotting it instead of just blurting it out. no ring in hand. no asking father's permission. for whatever reason all the girls she tells it to love the whole story and think its super sweet and romantic.

If you've been with your girl 10 years then you should feel confident you're going to pop the question in a way she'll love--just follow your instincts and you'll be alright!

Those are the first 2.
Yes there are 4. 5th one coming out this fall i think.
Each one is worse than the next.
Seriously, 2 of the least likable protagonists i've ever seen in media.
I could do a red letter media Star wars prequel type review on these things, I could easily rant for a few hours on how bad both the story and the film-making of this series is, and how stephanie meyer clearly hates women (although that point has already been covered a bunch).

The rifftrax were funny though.


Now I'm watching The Room.

The only Twilight movie seen is the one where Chuck Norris kills everyone in the movie with a machine gun within the first 10 seconds. Now playing in the "my own mind" theater.

Now I'm watching The Room.
One of my rules about movies:

If it's name is "The [noun]" it will be absolutely terrible, and should never be watched. "The Room" "The Ruins" "The Cave"

The only possible exceptions are where the noun is a word for some type of human.

Proposing isn't about cliches, originality, etc. Its about doing what will resonate between you and your future bride- something that resembles your first date, something that you do two have in common, whatever it may be.

You- Vashansesh only because I don't know your real name- will know what to do because it will feel like its the right way to do it.

I dont know if I could ever watch those movies, even with Mike and The Bots along for the ride.

This is pretty entertaining tho...
