Isn't that a good thing? I mean, yeah it's not an expensive restaurant and real ring ... but I think it's sweet and almost romantic. :)
I agree too! That is really thoughtful and out of the box. It is creative and fun, get over that it wasnt some huge, grand, pricey gesture, who else can tell your story? I hope you said yes and start appreciating the gift you received. AND now, you get to go ring shopping and get the ring of your choice!
Same here... Just because she's upset that he did it on the internet instead of in person doesn't mean she expected some huge "spectacle"...my husband proposed without a ring while we were on our way to go somewhere...I said yes and never once complained about it... But I sure as hell would have if he had done it in any way, shape or form over the internet or the phone.
ANDDDD it means that he knows her well enough to know that she'll check what present he sent her! Otherwise, if he might not have known if she plays it, then there would have been doubts and stuff, so obviously he KNOWS enough about her to know that she plays it...!
oh wow, he knows his girlfriend uses facebook! what a window into her soul he has! no. proposals should be done in person, with a real ring. it doesn't have to be a musical number in the middle of main st at disneyland, but it sure as hell shouldn't be anything like a text message, email, or over-the-shoulder "oh hey, wanna get married?" if they don't take marriage seriously enough to propose properly, odds are they're not going to take it seriously enough to make it last.
Don't post a FML because you are sad you didn't get some multi-thousand dollar ring. He could've given you nothing, like some people on here get. lol
I agree! It may a cute idea, but doing it in person is a MUCH greater impact then reading a proposal online. If he sent the ring online, then showed up at her door later to ask in person, then it'd be a completely adorable idea, since he probably couldn't have afforded a real one. Maybe she wanted to cry and jump into his arms after being proposed too... and show how excited she is? It's just not a very exciting memory, and makes it seem artificial online.......
I don't think the ring is the issue here. It's the fact that the boyfriend proposed to her over the internet. Seriously, I'm a total geek, but I would never propose to someone over Facebook. And in this economy, it's no wonder the boyfriend can't get a ring. Plus, she never said she wanted some incredibly expensive ring.
HAHA. First there were breakups over Facebook. Then came divorces. And now proposals. Too funny. In any case, Facebook is replacing too many important conversations in people's lives. I'm going to say FYL.
If my boyfriend proposed to me through a game I'd be kind of stoked [I'm a loooosser, and I'm not big on he fake romance bullshit]. He was trying to do something out of the ordinary.
the do it at McDonalds or Burger king not the internet the only way id be fine with the online proposal is if he made a vid on youtube (or any other video site) and in person told her to watch it then id be fine with it but through a online (btw crappy game) on facebook
