Last year, we changed our name from How He Asked to How They Asked because we know that loves stories come in all shapes and sizes. From him asking her and her asking him to them asking him and her asking her, the proposal stories that we have the honor of sharing are all unique in their own way. And today, we wanted to share just some of our favorite How She Asked stories. Read on for 12 unique lesbian proposals that make us laugh, give us heart eyes, and reach for the Kleenex all at the same time.
some of our favorite lesbian proposals
You can smell a proposal coming when a photoshoot gets put on the calendar. So, how do you throw them off? Tell them it’s a modeling gig! See how Anne fooled Kiite and pulled off a unique photoshoot proposal here.
When you and your girlfriend love to travel to far-off places, waking her up to catch a bus to the top of Machupicchu can seem like a typical day. But, when you get to the top of one of the world’s most famous destinations and find out that you’ve been carrying the ring that just got put on your finger the entire time? That’s anything but typical. Check out the epic views at the destination proposal here!
“Babe, I’m going to be featured in an art show!” If those words ever leave your loved one’s lips, your response is obviously something like, “That’s awesome! I can’t wait to go!” We love how LaTasha used this creative white lie as an opportunity to get Sarah exactly where she wanted her—in her art installation proposal spot!
When you’re an LGBTQ activist and your parent’s won’t walk you down the aisle, what do you do? You tweet Ellen DeGeneres and ask if she will! And, when she replies and invites you to be on her show, you enthusiastically say, “Yes!” all over again! See more of this viral proposal story here.
“For the absolute longest, Wendy kept talking about Lake Louise. How she thought it was beautiful and how she just needed to go one day.” We love that Brittney made her girlfriend’s Lake Louise dreams come true—and coordinated to have photographers there to capture it all. See the stunning photos they took here!
Lisana decided to pop the question on a trip to Mexico City to visit Regina’s family. “I had already decided the year we met that I was going to take her back to the pyramids to propose because it was a very special experience the first time we went and its the place we made our eternal commitment to spend the rest of our lives together.” But, what would an international proposal be without thinking you lost your passport, a cancelled photographer, and being paranoid that you’ll lose the ring? Read all about this Mexico City proposal in the pyramids (and how Lisana pulled it off)!
“I told her we were going to a Great Gatsby themed wedding and I asked her friends to meet us at Starbucks. We walked in and she was so surprised. She hadn’t seen a few of her friends in months because of the distance. When she finally stopped hugging everyone, she turned around to find me on one knee.” Watch this unique proposal go down here!
Great things are worth the wait—even when you put them on a 3-year timeline. Jess and Paulina knew that they would get engaged and, even after some fooled-you-it’s-not-happening-right-now moments, it was still a tearjerker proposal.
When you and your your longtime girlfriend are counting down the days until college graduation, is there a better gift than an engagement ring?! With the help of some friends, see how Kaitlyn pulled off a college campus proposal here!
If there is anything more romantic than a sunset dinner on a Greek Cliffside overlooking the ocean, please let us know! We love how Dawn planned to propose while on a 30th birthday trip to Greece with Kim and pulled off engagement photoshoot on top of it! See the view (and the ring) here.
Getting engaged with the California sunset in the background is great, but make it a surprise proposal surrounded by family and friends and you’ve got something really special. Watch Neesy pop the question in front of their loved ones here!
We’ve seen a surprise proposal or two in our day, but going through the trouble of faking emails? That’s a new one! Watch how Soyria came up with the idea and executed her proposal without a hitch here!
