10 Things He’s Thinking Before He Proposes
“I don’t want to ask. If she says no, I am leaving town. She never says no to me, watch her say no this time. I forgot to read the refund policy on the ring…sh*t. She better say yes! I hope she says yes.”
—Julian, 26, Milwaukee
“I got excited and told people I was going to do it, so I just wanted to make sure it stayed a secret. Also, the day of the proposal, I was going crazy trying to make sure I remembered to do everything before it actually happened.”
—Brian, 24, New York City
“I was worried that she would eat the ring because it was in her sorbet.”
—Allen, 24, Plainfield, Conn.

—JD, 21, Red Lion, Pa.
“How am I going to do this? How am I going to behave myself for the rest of my life? OK, she’s a great girl. She’s worth it.”

“I kept thinking to myself that I couldn’t believe I was about to ask the girl I love to spend the rest of her life with me.”

—Brent, 32, Dallas
“Even though this is what I wanted, I think most guys ask themselves, Is this what I really want? And I of course wondered what she would think of the sign that asked her to marry me.”
