    Default I hope Megan knows what she's in for! (I got engaged)

    Well as some of you already know. I decided to make Megan a honest woman and asked her to marry me. Still not sure why she agreed but she did. Since I am making the move to Raleigh, NC in April I wanted her to come with me (For most guys this is all the information you need,but since there are guys like CMHGUY who want to know when I asked her, how did I ask her, and what does the ring looks like?)

    Here you go!

    I asked her last weekend while we were on a weekend trip to Big Ceder Lodge on Table Rock Lake (South of Branson, MO).

    Saturday morning we went trout fishing at Lake Taneycomo. We got there before the Sun was up and put on the waders and ventured down to the waterfront. Just for the record Megan loves trout fishing. I had caught a few trout but Megan was cold and got skunked so she was ready to head into town and get breakfast. So we went back up to the truck and took off the gear and I told her "I think I know why you didn't catch any fish today." She said "oh yeah why?" I told her she should have used the "Super Lure". She said "What's the super lure?" I said "well it's only good for one fish, there is no catch and release, and you can't return the lure." She says "why have you not shown me the super lure before?" At this point she is getting mad because she thinks I have been holding out on her and not providing all the best options to catch fish. So to keep her from getting really mad I pulled the ring out of my pocket and asked her to marry me. It was like she looked right past what I was asking her and she said "but what about the super lure?!!!!" I asked her again and it set in real fast that the gold and diamond ring was in fact the super lure.



    For some reason she said "Yes!"

    She was shaking for about 15 min after i put the ring on her finger (still no tears which I was expecting). She wanted to call her parents who live in Hawaii but I stopped her because it was 9:00 AM in Missouri and it would have been 4:00 AM in Hawaii. I told her her parents already know because I asked for their permission and that's when the tears appeared.

    I look forward to my career move to Raleigh, NC and now I have my best friend coming with me!

    Beautiful story man. I am coming up on 37 yrs with the same woman, and if I can offer you a little advice it's compromise. No couple will ever make it if BOTH aren't willing to bend a little. Wishing you the best and happiness

    Congratulations my friend! I just got engaged myself about 6 months ago, and Its been pretty exciting! I really liked your story about the fishing lure, it was cute. I did something similarily as corny on my part, when I took her to a special spot we go to on our bikes by the lake... I asked her if she wanted to be my riding partner for life and she said "Yes, DUH of course!!" lol.. she's a great gal.

    Now, the fun part... I don't know when you plan on getting married but she's going to go straight into "Wedding" mode and shopping around for dresses and all kinds of stuff. This will be your life for the next few months! Enjoy

    My parents and brother and niece live close to Raleigh. Maybe one day we'll get together to say hi while I'm in town. My dad rides an M90 and we have another bike there too.

    If a 10 is near impossible, then we all at least have a 9!

    Congrats on the engagement! Looking forward to getting together once you move into the Raleigh area. Work is a little slow right now, so let me know if you need someone to help with the housing search in the Raleigh/Apex/Cary area. See you soon.
    Oh, and don't forget about the caravan that we take to Maggie Valley for the pre meet.

    Wow Ben! That's great! Even better that she said yes. I'll have to tell my wife cause it will pi$$ her off. We were planning our calendars together and I just asked what day she wanted to get married while we were talking on the phone together. Got the ring later and she is still bugged by it today. LOL

    Congrats to you Ben, and give Megan my sympathies for her.

    Seriously, you have my absolute best wishes. When you find that catch of a life time you really need to keep it. I hope you guys have a very long, happy and healthy marriage!

    LMAO!! Now that's some funny chit, right there!!


    Congrats, buddy!!! I am really happy for you...and I know she makes you happy...so, hey, we are all happy now...how about that??!

    Except maybe for Len...he's now in the hot seat for the other MegHan...guess she's gonna have to put the heat on to get his surly @$$ to ask her!!

    By the way...nice way to zoom way in on the ring picture so the ring looks enormous...but we know your cheap ass didn't go all out, even though she is a great girl...we know you just didn't have it in you...so, what, did you hold it really close to her eyes so she thought it was a huge ring like with the picture?

    Ya know, Ben, Megan's not as dumb as Haywud looks...she'll figure it out...but I am pretty sure Mikey won't...so no worries there! heh heh heh...

    Again, seriously, congrats...hope ya bring her to Maggie Valley in June...of course, that will certainly undermine the wedding plans when she meets your circle of 'friends' from there! Just keep her away from Laszlo!!
