Met online in 2008, best friends for years while I was with someone else but always had feelings for each other, both went through very difficult times and comforted each other and brought us even closer together, I ended my relationship and began one with Chris. We've been inseparable even through all our years anyway. He lived with me for 3 months and I went to visit him for 2 weeks in SC. During that time, and after such a long history together, I was certain that I wanted to spend my life with him. I asked his mom for permission and she agreed, and she suggested I do it at his dad's grave so both his parents could be there. I am pretty much the "male" and the dominant one of the relationship, so we both always knew it'd be down to me to propose when I felt ready (he always said he was ready whenever I was). I proposed and he stood there in shock, before saying OF COURSE and falling to his knees to kiss and hold me.
