A netizen shared how she had high expectations for her boyfriend’s marriage proposal and she ended up being disappointed.
Here is the story:
I guess I just need advice if I am unreasonable?
So a little bit of backstory here. My bf and I have been dating for 5 years. He criticised most men for being just not creative and so predictable about proposal, and lame about BTO, blah blah.
So yes, my expectations were much higher, that means that he would have put it more thought into it when it was his turn right? We’ve went to look at engagement rings together a few months back and I told him I can do with just a ring pop candy and a private proposal with just the two of us.
So fast forward to proposal day. He cooked my one of my favourite soup that my late mom used to make for me… that’s sweet right? So he was standing by the dining table and asked if I would like to marry him.
I didn’t answer him, because… dude didn’t even get on one knee, not even my ring pop candy (he told me he cannot find but I found it online), so I was utterly disappointed. I gave him 15 minutes, go get me my “token of love” and redo the proposal. LMAO i know.
Moments later, he shaved his face, got down on one knee and passed me a $2 note. No sweet nothings on why he would want to spend the rest of his life with me. I accepted his proposal because I love him and really want to spend the rest of my life together with him.
Not sure if you’ve noticed, but for me, my social feed is just filled with people who’ve recently got engaged. Just made me compare why other men can put in a bit more effort and he doesn’t. It just made me feel that he does not cherish me enough to at least get me my $2.50 ring pop candy and get down on one knee.
I’m still super upset, I cried sometimes thinking about it, I kid you not.I am not sure why he even bothered to ask me about my ideal proposal when he just didn’t live up to it.
He just said “Not everyone can get what they want.” I can’t even tell anyone close to me that “I’m engaged”, because, erm… am I? It’s a funny story to tell, but I seriously do not feel that my request was a tad bit ridiculous.
I need you guys to tell me that I was not unreasonable with my proposal request and what is he thinking?! HALP.
Editor’s note: Wait, I’m still trying to wrap my head around the $2 note…
