Engagement, Proposal, and Ring

I am engaged! No ring had to be given or proposal to be done for me to have an engaged statusI am that easy. :)

I was engaged last year. Being engaged—in my book—starts at the moment when two people have chosen to be with each other for the rest of their lives and decided to marry some time in the future. And we—my boyfriend Paulo and I—started talking about getting married since 2011, because we love each other. I so love him that I want to spend the rest of my life with himmay be as his friend, wife or number one fan. Basta tabi kami lagi.

I never wanted an engagement ring from Paulo. Because one, it is pointless to spend for; two, it is unnecessary; and three, it is overrated. My only focus is on us and making our relationship work. I am practical like that.

Paulo asked his brother to take photos while he proposed.
I don’t want to be contradicting, but Paulo proposed recently. I was really surprised. We were at an outdoor concert and he was acting weird. I wanted to go home already but he insisted on waiting for his friend's turn to perform. Suddenly one of our favorite songs played. The next thing I knew, he was down on his knee and formally proposing. It happened so fast; but it was still sweet, beautiful and fun!

The proposal happened—this is what I tell my friends about the ring and proposal—because I am lucky to have an awesome fiance who wants me to have and experience everything in life including owning an engagement ring and being proposed to. Again—for emphasis—the proposal is not needed because the wedding will push through with or without the ring. But, hey, the ring is really beautiful. Magrereklamo pa ba ako. :)
