    should I ask her....

    Ok, ive had a really busy time as of late with school/work/my gf Havent even had spare time to come here that much except for like 2:00am, thank god Im graduating with my degree this summer and will only have to take 9 hrs this summer :-p. . Anyways me and my gf have been together for a little over a year, and lately weve been talking about the future and I can tell she wants me to ask her to marry her, and trust me I can see myself with her for the rest of my life, but I want to do something really really really special for her, something out of the ordinary when I pop the question. Unfortunately I cant think of anything that different that would be unexpected so id like some suggestions from u guys :-p

    You should write a program, put it on a disk and into her computer so that when she turns it on, it pops up with a prompt:

    Code:
    Will you marry me (y/n)?

    go figure poly w/code as a response
    spoken like a true programmer!!!

    in response to "shold i ask her", if you really love her you should, but i'd get more input on how to pop the question before i'd write a code snippet

    Take her out to an expensive restaraunt / hotel and get them to page her as "Mrs xds4lx".

    See if she likes the sound of it.

    I don't know you well enough or your girlfriend at all.

    The only comment I'll make, based on personal experience, is that marrying at a young age is often a bad idea as neither of the personalities of the two parties are complete. What seems terribly right at 20 can feel so horribly wrong at 25. Messy, expensive, and somewhat traumatising to sort out.

    Whatever you decide good luck.

    way to be supportive.....geeze, he's got a point, but then again, it really depends on the couple..not that i dont agree that things can get messy. but you just have to keep in mind the reasons you want to get married. usually the people that dont last did it for the wrong reasons, or just because

    Thats a bit too general, eh? We're not all like that.

    xds4lx, just one piece of advice from me, make sure neither of you have been drinking toooo much when you pop the question. There's nothing like waking up the next morning wondering if the answer she gave was influenced by the alcohol

    Nice restaurant/meal sounds like a good plan.

    >>did it for the wrong reasons, or just because
    well said, make sure it's what you both really want, don't be afraid to talk about it with each other.

    @Polymorphic: I think you should write a full program, providing a simulation of the events!
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]

    I think it is very sad that you have seen my posts about chicks (ie. The fat chick thread) and their responses and still asked questions here. Hasn't been bad so far though...it may turn into one massive ball of crap. LOL, I can imagine a ball of crap ... rolling down the street

    When my brother-in-law decided to propose to my sister, I
    guess it must have been sometime around Christmas, he hung
    a pinata and told her to go to town on it. When the thing broke
    open, viola!, out fell her engagement ring. I know it might
    be a little late for pinatas, but what the hey, maybe your gf
    doesn't know they're hung up at Christmastime.

    Of course, you caould also do like that tv commercial and take her out to dinner and have the waiter serve her ring inside the
    dessert. Just make sure the right cake gets delivered to the right table.

    Yes, you seem like you want to marry her. You should.

    ... yup, just because it felt right at the time. Listen, I said at the top of my message I don't know him or his girlfriend, I went on to make a comment based on personal experience.

    face_master:

    >>> seen my posts about chicks

    Yes, we have, and I'm so glad you chose to share them with us.

    > Hasn't been bad so far though...

    Well, no kidding it hasn't been that bad so far - xds4lx isn't whining about how some girl he doesn't like is following him around.

    xds4lx, no one here can tell you the right thing to do. adrian's got a point - lots of early marriages end quickly and badly. On the other hand, my parents got married when they were in their early 20s and have been happily married for almost 25 years now. As corny as it sounds, you have to follow your heart in this - asking for advice from a board with members like f_m is asking for trouble, IMO...

    I should point out that people who wait into their thirties don't usually last that long either. You see they have had much more time in life to know what it's like to be with a variety of women. adjusting to monogomy is much harder after that.

    look at the elderly. of all the people you have known to be married for 40 years, what percentage of them got married young. for me, it's just about all. I've pretty much never heard of anyone lasting that long after "waiting" till they were thirty.

    anyhow, I don't think a year is enough time with someone to know them that well. You're still in the lust before love phase.

    brian, when you said "top of a building" I was sure you were going to suggest he push her off.
