Yes, I will

Recently, I've been seeing a lot of off-the-hook marriage proposals. I mean, the latest one I saw was one where the guy made a movie and played it in the local cinema. I even heard about a proposal during a basketball game. Don't get me wrong, I thought it was cute and I said a long awwwwwww to it, but whenever I think about my ideal marriage proposal...nothing that colorful comes up. Here's what mine looks like.

We are at dinner in a really fancy place that we never eat at, talking and laughing like we always do and then while we're waiting for desert or something, he places the open ring box in front of me and asks me to marry him.

No kneeling, just a heart felt two lined speech. It might be nice for him to ask the band to play our song just when he's asking.

Nice and simple.

I don't know if I want this because I don't have a creative bone in my body, or because I simply want a quiet proposal that I can actually consider carefully without the pressure of so many eyes on me.

To be honest, every time I see a huge proposal, I always wonder if deep down she wanted to say no. If everyone is looking at her with so much expectation, it would take a very gutsy woman to say no or even 'can we talk about this later?' And the thought makes me cringe.
Then again I think about it and I figure he wouldn't go through all that trouble unless he's sure right?

Obviously, I don't want whoever my boyfriend at the time is to search this post out and read it just so he knows what I want. I'd like his creative side to kick in, just not in a huge way. I guess if he's gonna ask me to marry him, he'd probably knows my opinion on things like this. I hope.
