> > > > I'm looking for some ideas on creative ways to propose to my girlfriend. Hopefully you guys (and girls for that matter) can give me some ideas on how to do it in a really creative and romantic way. And I'd love to hear how you proposed (or were proposed to) as well. I don't want to duplicate someone else, but your stories might give me some ideas.

Great job, Sam!

I've finally settled on a time and place to propose to her, but I still need to work out the details of how. I actually do know someone at NASA, so maybe the zero-G proposal could happen! :-)
