    How long have you been married?

    The second sentence made me warm and fuzzy inside, my wife says it all the time..... right before she takes my plastic to go shopping payup :laugh:

    haha... well guys she almost found the ring box (had it stuffed in my shoe in the closet) she decided at 4:30am this morning that she wanted to clean the closet lol... but I was able to steer her to do laundry ha to give me time to re hide it.

    SOOOO I pop the question tomorrow sometime when I feel is right...

    I was selling insurance for State Farm and we were in a conference together... we kind of caught each others eye... spoke just a minute or two... she emailed me saying I was disruptive at the conference because I kept cracking jokes... we talked for a week or two I asked her out on a date.. about a year later we live together... just bought a puppy last month, are looking for rental properties to buy and she's supporting me 100% to go back into this industry... I couldnt have found a better one!

    I was actually in the same situation as you about not finding girls... I had a nice apartment I lived by myself with exceptions of my son, new car good job (was in lots of debt though because I was 20 and thought I could afford my $25k car, $800 apartment, health insurance, car insurance and some credit card debit on top of it!!) we started dating and I actually went belly up bankrupct lost everything... I tipped toed around for a few months doing every thing I could for extra money... i thought when i told her I was filing bankrupcty I was going to lose her but she stuck by myside...I saved up money to buy my truck and going about everything almost 100% debt free. I have some medical bills that I owe that were not discharged fully but still working around those.

    And I got $1500 off the ring because I kept joking with the lady selling it to me and she kept adding discount after discount... So it became less expensive than I wanted to spend on a zero turn thankfully lol

    Great story.
    Nice deal on how you got the price lower and lower on the ring, funny how that works sometimes. Good luck to you tomorrow!!
