How did he propose?
At the time of the proposal we were dating long distance, he was in LA and I was in San Francisco, and I had just visited him over the weekend and had driven back the night before. Little did I know that he actually had been right behind me on the road, and stayed the night with a friend in the city without me knowing. So I was completely surprised when I got home from work to see him in the lobby of my apartment building. I wish I could remember what he said, but it is all kind of blur after he got down on one knee. Luckily, I have photos to remember it by because my best friend was hiding around the corner snapping pics the whole time! He's so thoughtful, that he had even made reservations at three or four different restaurants to let me choose where we would celebrate.
The ring was especially exciting, because we had casually looked at vintage rings together and I had fallen in love with one in particular, but when I pointed out that the ring had disappeared off the jewelry store's website he made up an elaborate lie about how someone else had nabbed it before he could. Needless to say, I was shocked to find out he was the person who bought it!

We had been dating almost four years when he proposed.
