I have noticed the Women's Issues forum has, of recent, become a raging bitchfest. To lighten the mood around here, I pose an honest question. What are some of the most creative ways your spouse/friends have proposed to their loved ones? I for one hate the idea of marriage, but enjoy the ingenuity in ways people have proposed. I'll start. A friend of mine and his "Special Lady Friend" were out at a local state park. After hiking and spending a day out in the sun, they retired to a secluded lakeside cove where they began to skip stones across the water, during which they discussed their future plans together. After awhile my friend began mocking his lady friend about how much she sucked at skipping stones he continued to mock her and as she focused harder and harder on a seven skipper (he was handing her the stones) he slipped her the box with the ring in it. She was so taken by the task of skipping she almost whipped the engagement ring into the lake, but once she saw the box in her hand she wept and said yes. P.S. lets try to stick to things more original then the ring in the champagne glass. GO!
