A guy reads Twilight by Stephenie Meyer (2009-2011)

TwilightGuys Report: He Proposed With Bella’s Engagement Ring


I love my girlfriend, and I have to say I love her a lot more than Robert “Robward” Pattinson or Edward Cullen loves her. I love her so much I intend to marry her one day.

We’ve been going out for seven and a half years now and every day has brought me something new, but none as much as her latest obsession of the Twilight books. You see, Marianne and I met in high school when we were sixteen years old, and being introduced to Twilight made me feel like I was dating my sweet sixteen year old girlfriend again.

Unlike some of the other guys I know dating girls obsessed with the books, my girlfriend never insisted that I read the series, but her obsession was making me curious. Now being as obsolete to books as I am, I walked into a book store forgetting the name of the Twilight novel and asked for a book with a girl holding an apple. I intended to surprise my girlfriend by reading it before she inevitably asked me to.

Anyway, the clerk behind the counter was a man, an old man, and he showed me Snow White.

I knew it wasn’t that… so I decided to look for myself and ended up finding Eclipse. It was a small bookstore and I was too scared to get caught buying Twilight in a larger one like Borders, so I bought Eclipse instead and read it. All of it. The Edward character inspired me to want to propose to my girl even sooner than before because he reminded me of how much I loved her.

A few nights later after reading the book, Marianne was intending to buy a t-shirt to wear to the opening release of Breaking Dawn in August and she had the Twilight Teez website open on her computer. I promised I would buy her the shirt and that’s when I came across Bella’s engagement ring.

It finally arrived three months later (give or take) and my plan was simple. I had bought a new bed frame despite there being nothing wrong with the old one. I even went so far as to get one with rose panels. She was confused when I showed her the new frame, but then I intentionally proposed to her the same way Edward did,

“I promise to love you forever – every single day of forever. Will you marry me?”

But it was her face that was most priceless, when she recognized the words I was saying and the ring that she was staring at in its black velvet box. Her reaction was dissimilar to Bella’s — she screamed and nodded and said “Oh my Cullen!” a lot — and I kissed each of her fingertips and the ring that was now hers. I’ve since read all other books in the Twilight series and we plan to get married next Spring.”

  1. If my boyfriend proposed to me with Bella’s engagement ring, I’d dump him. :I

  2. Since your girl was a Twilight fan, you’re excused and it was sweet. If my bf did that I would look at him with chagrin (TM Meyer).

    And “oh my Cullen” is just lame.

  3. pardon!? does anyone else find this highly disturbing? She what, memorised the wedding lines?

    Also, i wonder: when she said oh my cullen, was she calling you her cullen (in which case i think you should be quite offended), or was she using it as a substitute for oh my god (in which case you should be worried about her mental health)

  4. Hmm… so much for originality… Yeah, it's sweet and all, but as a woman, I would rather have my guy propose in his own way, rather than take the words and actions from a novel, no matter how much I like that novel. By the way, I am married, and my husband proposed in a very simple and wonderful way – and best of all, he used his OWN ideas and words.

  5. that was very sweet of you,hope the best for both. =]

    but you should have made your own words,but twilight has brought you together,so thats really awesome,its inspirational.
