    I always knew I would do it at a Phillies game, so I'm going to pick the game, buy the tickets, and set it all up with the stadium.

    Already have the ring picked out, just need to pick it up.

    I'm fucking scared as shit :lol:

    Not because I think she'll say no, I know she'll say yes, but because I'm a guy and that kind of commitment is of course a scary thing. She's the mother of my child though, and I'm nothing without her.

    Any suggestions?

    If you even have to ask this question on a PUBLIC MESSAGE board then I'm afraid you're in trouble!

    You type as though you have a lot of doubts. Ever hear the word "When in doubt don't"? You need to do some serious soul searching as to why you are going to ask a woman to marry you. Marriage is a commitment that shouldn't be taken lightly as so many have. It's not only your life, its your childs and your future wife. Are read to spend the rest of your life with this woman?

    Looks as if you're already "committed" if you stuck around. So what the fuck are you scared of? Nobody said it would be a piece of cake, ya know.

    Aaaahh the hell with it... it's old fashioned, conservative, Christian kind of stuff to get married... just forget about it.

    I'm just sharing it with the fellow posters of the board, Terry. I'm not asking a question, I'm just making a statement pretty much.

    Yes, I'm ready to spend the rest of my life with her. I never used to believe in marriage, but as I've gotten older I've gotten more conservative, and I take that kind of committment seriously. I wouldn't do it if I wasn't prepared to stick it out. This girl and I have been through so much crap already and we're still going, that I just know we'll be ok. We're pushing 30, so there's a lot of time left in our lives, but based on what we've come through so far, it just seems right.

    There's various other reasons why I think it's the right time, which I won't bother getting into, but I also can't imagine not raising our child together.

    The girl completes me, I don't know what else to say, as corny as that line has probably become. I've gone through a certain amount of time without her since we've been together, and I'm just not the same person without her.

    I don't think a guy being scared about it should necessarily be alarming, in and of itself. The main reason it scares me is BECAUSE I know it will be forever. I've always been a man of my word, and if I give a vow to stay together until we die, then that's my word.

    Congrats! Go for it!

    However, I had to reread your original message as I thought the bolded text above said "she's the child of my mother".

    If that was the case, I'm not sure I could have wholeheartedly approved of your plan, unless you could have convinced me that you were born and raised in WV.

    Find a girl you don't like and buy her a house.


    :lol:









    I'm kidding! Don't write me letters I'll ignore...

    Congratulations Paulie - you should be a little scared, it is a big commitment - not to mention how you are putting your nuts on a very public line via your method of proposal...

    What if she says 'no' on the stadium big screen?!?! :ack-1:

    If you were cavalier about it I'd bet against you. Marriage has been an awesome pain in the ass for me - Work hard and make it happen... if it was easy everyone would succeed.
