      Things like this give me hope there’re still gay men looking for something deeper than NSA fun. Gonna keep looking, now. :) Thanks guys, and I wish you the best!

      I love stuff like this! It was like no one else was in the room after he proposed.

      @SebX: I agree whole heartedly.

      I’d never would have thought that I’d see this day. A day when it didn’t matter about the genitalia of the two individuals but about the Love one has in his or her heart for another. For true love is not bound by rigid standards set by society. True love is of the spirit. True love? is what it is. As far as them being Marines, I can’t help but think of the historical worriers named “Sacred Band of Thebes”.

      And here I thought there was actually no such thing as love.

      Maybe I was wrong…

      @balehead: Commenting while being a general slice-hole is just as bad. Don’t you have a man, a woman, a dog, or elderly mother who can’t escape you to spit all your nastiness on. Why do regular Queerty readers get all the fun? I honestly can’t think of one positive post I have ever read on here with your name attached to it. NOT ONE’S PERIOD CAN LAST THAT LONG! Maybe if you were a little bit nicer your world view wouldn’t be so dark. :)

      such a classey proposal. not. I hope the have a long marrriage, but let’s hope they class up their lives a bit more and decide not to be attention/fame seekers in the future

      There was nothing classey or cute about that proposal. What was cute about? That he proposed while his now fiancee is barefoot? while they were drinking (and in all likelihood drunk? that he interrupted a frriend making a “toast”? that he proposed at a unromantic way?

      @miagoodguy: Seems like a typical military party for two guys.

      Also, do you ever post anything positive?

      It is a typical military party (especially for those under 30) hence why proposing then is not very classy at all. Proposing is a huge event in most people’s lives. Try putting a little bit more thought into it since this is suppossed to be the guy you want to spend the rest of your life with you.

      @miagoodguy: Tell ya what…when it’s YOUR proposal, you get to critique it to your heart’s content. Until that time, it’s not your business to decide how other people get to propose.

      It is my business when they make their lives public and post it on the internet. You post something on the internet you must accept both the good and bad remarks. If you don’t want criticism, don’t make your life open to the public.

      Tacky as proposal, but as long as they are happy lol

      @miagoodguy: I agree. I’m not a mushy person, but I think proposals are one of the few times you need to be super mushy and pour it on thick. I would definitely plan something special if I was going to propose to someone. I’d have a short speech about why I want them to marry me too. I would want it to be a special moment, but maybe that momeent at the beer blast or whatever was special for them lol I dunno
