How They Asked
I invited Matthew to my house to take him to the local fair. I got tickets for the day after Valentine’s Day. We were going to head out the door when he popped his head into the bathroom while I was brushing my teeth. He asked my parents about whether it was okay to propose to me, this is before he got a job, and they said yes the night before. So he decided to ask me whether or not I would marry him. I thought he was joking at first and then when I realized he was serious I kind of just freaked and said no the first time around. But eventually, I said yes.
