Today, I proposed to my boyfriend. He said yes, but is now sulking because I took away his "manhood". Jeez, sorry I didn't want to wait another 7 years for you to finally do it. FML

If all that's required to take away someone's manhood is a proposal, is it really worth having in the first place? Nothing says "I'm secure in my masculinity" like pouting after a woman expresses her desire to spend the rest of her life with you.

Congratulations though!

Why did you cut his dick off?

That's not what you do when you have proposed... As far as I know.

Our countries must have quite different customs then, because in Britain when you get married your balls mysteriously appear in your wife's purse...

I'm pretty certain it was a bad pun, #17. ''Took away his "manhood",'' OP wrote. What does "manhood" usually refer to?

Congratulations though!

If he said yes, why wouldn't have he proposed himself? < >

By that logic, nobody would ever say yes because they'd have proposed first.

I think 3's point is that if he wanted to get married AND he wanted to be the one to propose, why hadn't he already done so?

I proposed to my husband. He wanted to ask but was sure I'd say no because of my views on marriage. I could tell it was making him miserable so I helped him out by planning a proposal and surprising him. He was ecstatic that I was willing to give him something he wanted.

Because he didn't know if she would say yes he was probable fairly nervous

Aww well congratulations on the engagement! He'll get over himself eventually

Tell him to get over it. In this day and age, anyone can propose. His fault that he was slow.

He'll get over it, OP. Since it's generally thought that the man is "supposed" to propose, some men have problems with accepting that women can also do the deed. He said yes, so he definitely loves you. Congrats!

Agreed. Thing is, the same way girls are pressured with being sexy, atractive and feminine, guy are with being manly, strong and proactive.

Was it a romantic proposal? Like were you walking on the beach and waiting till the sunset then when the sun hit the water just right u dropped on one knee looked him straight in the eyes and said will you marry me? And then he started tearing up and jumping up n down while screaming yes?

This is for op's fiancee Just make sure the master of ceremonies asks her first if she'll marry you. Then, from that point it is you who makes the ultimate decision.

I would have to side with the guy. It's a once in a lifetime thing for the guy to plan a beautiful proposal and get on one knee for his wife. I wouldn't want that taken away from me personally.

Then I would definitely make sure not to wait 7 years to do it, or have a conversation to see if you guys were on the same page. I get why a guy would want to, but at some point if they aren't, either she asks or she leaves, if that's what she wants.

Agreed. My dad was slow to ask my mum and she ultimately left him as she felt the relationship was going nowhere. It opened his eyes to what an idiot he was being and they got back together and he proposed. They've now been married for 28 years, have 3 kids, are still going strong and have renewed their vows again. I'm not saying all relationships should be like that but if you both feel that strongly, want to get married and have been together for that long propose or pull your head in if the other person asks you.

And it wouldn't be the same for a woman? Either way one person doesn't get to do it
