Today, my boyfriend proposed to me. I said yes. This caused him to panic, excuse himself, then take it back via text message a half hour later, claiming he'd been drunk. We live together. When he comes back home, it's going to be very awkward indeed. FML

Just a moment of blind panic to be sure OP. Talk it out with him when he returns. Try to alleviate his anxiety by explaining that marriage won't be so different from your current living status. Good luck you

I agree. It's probably just wet feet. Sure he didn't handle it great, but most people don't handle things well when they're anxious. When you feel the time is right, confront him GENTLY about this.

Wow, I need to also proof read my posts beforehand. *I'm married. And yeah, not very romantic... Especially since he was still in his gym clothes after a hard workout.

It's ok. My parents proposal was:
Dad: so are we getting married and your moving in with me or are we breaking up?
Mom: I guess I'm moving
Dad: ok go look at rings and pick what you want.
At least your husband went with you. But hey they're still happily married 25 years later so I guess it worked for them.

After only 6 weeks of dating, my dad was like:
"Why don't we get married so you don't have to worry about renewing your Visa?"
***Still married. :P

Its always best to write and not worry about getting thumbed up or down. There is more to life then counting your thumbs. (I personally have two thumbs, but I still count them ever so often to be sure).
