My boyfriend and I had been together for almost five years. Our five- year anniversary was approaching, and he wanted to know what I wanted for it. I told him that I wanted diamond stud earrings. On the night of our anniversary, he picked me up to go to dinner, but he seemed like he was in a rush. He explained that he wanted to go someplace special before dinner. He took me to a pier overlooking the NYC skyline. We used to frequent this place often, especially when we first started dating, and it is a very romantic spot.
As we were looking at the city view, he pulled out a box and said, "Happy anniversary, baby! " As I opened the box, I saw the diamond earrings. As I looked at them more closely, however, I noticed something behind them. I turned the box, and there behind the earrings was a ring. Before I could even process what was happening, I looked up at him, and he got down on his knee and asked me to marry him.
