That’s what helps make the world go ’round. Not to mention, I was probably a little young and foolish, lending more fuel to the determination fire.

After the second time I definitely would be thinking that maybe this wasnt meant to be and somebody is trying to tell me something!!

I made my husband propose 3 times! First time, he got the location and the staging right, but I did not like the ring. The second time he got the right ring, but the rest of the proposal left much to be desired. Thankfully, the third time was a charm, he got everything right. We were dating/living together for over 15+ years, so it was surprising he had to work for it so hard :-).

Go searching for one thing and find something completely different. Sounds like searching for love on Valentine’s Day, now doesn’t it?

Thanks for the kudos.

You didn’t take the photo. That was probably the right decision of the time. The fact that you thought about it, the moment gave you pause to put on the “respect” brakes.

My advice: always be sincere, no matter what. Ask politely. The worst that someone can say is “No.”

Oh, by the way, we wrote an article devoted to the topic of taking photographs of people, with an expanded thought on engagement, which is the most important dimension in our opinions:

Thanks for your comment!

@Reg: Thanks. Not exactly what I was aiming for at the time, but I’ll take it. That you smiled through this story: that was my goal. Just recounting the story made me laugh.
