So I'm dating this girl...and well I've been waiting to date her for like 5 years, like she was straight but I always kept trying anyway. So finally Jan. 2nd she comes out to me and said she has liked me for 4 years...rediculous? I KNOW. So anyway no we're the happiest we've ever been and I feel like I've been with her this WHOLE time.

Wel Metrocon '09 is going to be her first con and the anime that we're obsessed with is FullMetal Alchemist. SO what I want to do is propose to her then and there. But I've gone over it so many times and I got my lines in my head, but I havent picked HOW I want to do it like I've thought of so many different ways but meh it's aggravating.

I'm guessing people in this forum have been to the tampa bay con center and know the layout and how m-con is set up. So someone help. Cause I don't know if I should go the public approach or the silent private type.

Well if you're pretty positive she'll say yes then do it in public^^ If not then there is a little balcony type thing upstairs you could use^^

It would be cute if you did it in public or private^^ Public you'd probably want to do it downstairs private then i'd say the balconoy upstairs~!

its not really a proposal...it's more like a promise until I actually propose someday so you could call it a promise ring more then an engagement ring. All I DO know is I want to spend the rest of my life with her, and she says the same all the time.

I think thatwould be cute if was a promise thing proposal but people might get the wrong idea of it actually being a engagnment proppsal. Oh well who cares what people think. lol But I thnk if you do it in public that would be nice. And then people would be congratulating you of whoever saw it all day.:)

Yeah that's what I was thinking. Like my goal is to make her CRY like not in a mean uncaring way, but she said that she will never cry in front of me and I want to prove her wrong. So what I wanna do is this. Alright so my father and mother almost got divorced but then they patched things up. So my dad bought mom a new engagement ring cause hers was ancient and we were at Disney and you know how the photographers stop you in front of the castle to take a pic? Well my dad asked them to do that we took a few pics together and then BAM he whips out the ring and the photographer is like OMG OMG OMG thinking that was his first go on it and she gets all excited snapping pics lol.

So I wanna freak out a fellow cosplayer, like give someone my camera and ask them if they can take a picture. Go down to "tie my shoe" (even though the boots I'm wearing don't have laces ^_^;;) and then tell her how much she means to me.

Sound good?

Ok as long as it's not engagement. Promise rings are always cute (as long as the other person doesn't get the wrong idea). My advice would be to go for it and when you're preparing to do it, don't act weird or they'll call you out. Be smooth and sly and play it off cool. Promise rings always mean a lot to a girl, especially if you worked hard to get the ring or it had some sort of sentimental value. Prepare what you're going to say to her when you give it to her and don't tell anyone (except the people in the thread since it's too late to go back) about your plan. As long as no one knows, she won't see it coming. Suprise is a great tactic. So like I said, go for it.

Haha. Cause its adorable =P . Definitely do it up big at Metro though, because even if me and my boyfriend are off somewhere and I miss it Sayomi would definitely be there to record it lol. -Sayomi is my sister, a lolita in both senses, shes a Metrocon socialite.-
