Prupose To GF Over Steam? - Page 4

post #31 of 56
depends on your point of view i suppose. but i just want to remind you that hopefully both you and your GF will be here 10 to 15 years from today.... TF2 won't be

Dude ... NO.

Just, no.

Girls require something WAAAAAY more special than this for that occasion in their lives. They'll feel cheated, embarrassed to tell their friends how you did it ... it's just a bad, bad idea.

Ya gotta take her someplace special/romantic, at a bare minimum. Doing something creative on top of that is a bonus, but you MUST do it someplace nice, preferably a place with meaning to both of you ... maybe where you went on your first date, something like that.

This. She may still say yes, but all of her friends and family would make fun of you, and she would have to defend it to her friends. She would much rather brag to her friends about how awesome and romantic her proposal was than have to explain it to everyone that mocks you. If you are truly die hard fans of this game, I think the idea of doing it after a tour would be a tad bit nerdy, but pretty cool if you 2 are both into it. Please post in this thread that you promise not to do this... please? smile.gif

yeah man, the proposal needs to be something that SHE will remember... its for HER so make sure you do something that is meaningful and special to her.

Unless she is some uber hardcore gamer chick, don't do it.

No matter how HC you guys are with steam/tf2. 20+ years from now, on your 50th wedding anniversary, would you want to remember you asking her to marry you on steam/tf2?

There's some things in life that are tradition, this is one of them. I know we're in the 21st century, but nothing beats shivery like getting down on 1 knee, like your supposed to. Granted I've never done that, but I know, girls love that kinda stuff, they like to talk to their friends about how he proposed and all that. I know alotta couples get pictures for their engagement. I helped a dude in my HS (don't worry, he was the teacher), get engaged by surprising her with a scavenger hunt. Her and all her gf's would drive around town and we'd be at each location with the next clue...

It might seem cheesy, but that's the point. remember, this is FOREVER! The way it was intended to be.

Good luck! thumb.gif

Just an idea.

+1 to this. If not, at least ask help from Valve to propose. Something nice and easy. Like a News topic. XD

The proposal part of a relationship is absolutely crucial. Keep electronics out of it.

Yeah me and my wife play rift and swtor together too and we are hardcore gamers. So what? Woman are emotional. Give them a gift in game its no big deal. Give them a gift face to face, gift wrapped and your husband of the year for a long time. Proposing is a BIG deal. Specially for the female species. To us guys its a no big deal kinda thing. To them, its one of the biggest events of their life. They will talk about it with all of their girlfriends family members and anyone they meet at the store. Face to face, in real life, not in front of your screen. Can you imagine her saying, "yeah he proposed in a video game."
The response your going to get from everyone in the room will be like this...thtats Dad in the center with the red circle around him and theres mom on the right. Not cool man.

humm, the question I would ask is " why are you not dating outside of game world? " have you seen this girl in real life? is she worth your attention ? does she live close to you? I think you guys should hang out outside of game and do fun stuff in real life and get to know each other , I understand you are a fellow overclocker but don't do this online, meet and spend time with her then decide. thumb.gif
