As of Thursday, April 14th, I have a friend in the diamond business. My lover became my betrothed, in a manner most fitting to his personality. I went to visit him Thursday, but it was still a school night for him so we went up to a computer lab and did homework. I was under the impression that he would possibly propose this weekend, but that he did not yet have the ring. So as we were walking back to his apartment from the lab, he stopped, right there on the sidewalk, next to the parking lot. He said "I can't wait anymore!" and got down on one knee. I totally thought he was joking, because he has often joked about different proposals. But then he pulled out the ring, and I practically grabbed it out of his hands as he asked me to marry him. He had picked out my ring all by himself, with input from my friends and family and using my favorite ring as a base. And he did amazing! I love my ring, and I love him!
