The Proposal

Onto the good stuff — the engagement! First of all, you should know that, in Switzerland, girls just get a simple gold or silver band as their engagement ring. And there are quite a lot of girls who don’t get a ring at all for their engagement. I told my boyfriend at the very beginning of our relationship that, if he wanted to marry me someday, he needed to get me a real American engagement ring. A girl needs some bling, right?
We have been together for a bit more than six years when he finally made the decision to get me an engagement ring. We don’t have the same taste in jewelry, so he wanted to be on the safe side and let me pick the ring by myself (Alright, probably because I’m juuuuuuuuuust a bit picky). So, we took a vacation in Florida and visited as many jewelers as we could find. By the end of the day, I found the most precious and gorgeous ring at the very last jeweler we visited!
I told him beforehand that, even if he bought me the ring, it didn’t mean he that could skip the proposal. But guess what? After that wonderful day we spent together, I didn’t need a proposal as it just felt right!
The night I finally took my ring home (they resized it three times), we went for a romantic dinner. We drank red wine and just enjoyed each other’s company. I could not have asked for a better or more meaningful "proposal".
