My fiancé and I met in college and had been dating for about six years. He proposed to me at Barnegate Lighthouse. My parents have a house there, and we've been going there every summer; it is a very special place for us. The day he proposed was like any other weekend. We had recently purchased some bikes, so we decided to take a ride to the lighthouse. There was a walkway along the ocean and the lighthouse overlooks that walkway. We decided to walk along the ocean right at sundown. It was beautiful with the boats coming into the inlet and the ocean glowing from the sun. We walked a little way down away from the crowds, and then he turned to me and held my hands. He told me how much he loved me and how special the time we spent together was. He then got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. That night, we went to dinner at a restaurant that overlooked the bay. It was beautiful, and I couldn't have dreamt up a more romantic proposal!
