Long Distance Relationship Proposal – We’re Engaged!


So, my partner and I have some news... We're engaged!

For those of you who don’t know, I’m Monica! I’ve been in a long distance relationship with my now finance, Sam, since 2015. Our proposal was super romantic, and the most special thing I’ve ever encountered!

Here is the story of our proposal!

On October 15th, 2019, my partner, Sam, and I flew to Nice, France...

The reason Sam purchased us flights to France was to celebrate our 4th anniversary on October 16th. Nice has always been a really special place for us because in 2015, that’s where Sam asked me to be his girlfriend while walking along the beach! So, needless to say, I couldn’t have been more excited to go back!

We flew to Nice a day before our anniversary.

Unfortunately, this is also the day I got extremely ill! I caught some sort of bug and felt horrible! Of course, this didn’t stop me from having a great time! Our first night in Nice we ordered takeaway and binge-watched movies. Little did I know, the next morning, my life would change forever.

The next day was our 4th anniversary!

In the morning, Sam left to pick up our rental car for the day. He told me he had something special planned. At this point, I had NO idea what he had in store… A few people asked me how I didn’t know that he was going to propose – He brought me to where he asked me out, it was our anniversary, he had a secret thing planned, but I literally had no idea! Sam always told me that he was going to propose when I was around 27 years old… At this point, I was 22!

While he was out, I had a small surprise of my own.

I bought a bunch of heart balloons, a big 4 balloon, and set up the apartment all cute. When he got back, he was surprised to see all the balloons, thanked me for them, and told me we were heading out to Monaco. We left the apartment, got in the car, and started driving to a gorgeous spot that had insane views over the city of Monaco. Funny enough, I went in our backpack and saw a small box. I thought it was a necklace box, and then my mind thought, “what if that’s a ring?” But then, I shot down the thought of a proposal as Sam always said it wouldn’t be for a long, long time. When we got there, we were searching for the best view possible so we can ‘get cute anniversary pictures’. Yeah, no… He was looking for the best spot to propose!

After finding the spot, Sam took his computer out of his bag and handed it to me.

I was extremely confused. I asked him why he had his computer with him and what was going on! He told me to click play, face the view, and to not turn around. So, I clicked play on the video of his computer, and started to cry… Click here to see what I watched!

The video was all about our past 4 years together.

I still had no idea what was going to happen… Until, in the video where he says “A few years ago, I jokingly asked if you would marry me, to which you replied, yes. Would your answer still be the same after all these years? Monica, I have a question to ask you” This was the moment I thought “Oh shoot, is this what I think it is?!”

He asked me to turn around and put the computer down.

(His computer almost fell off the cliff we were on, whoops!)

At this point, he started his proposal speech...

I was in shock! Finally, I knew what was happening! He said his beautiful speech, then got on one knee. Immediately, I thought it was a prank! Not because we’re YouTubers, but because I always believed it would be in 5-7 years time. I happily said yes (and still thought it wasn’t real)! It took me a while to realize that I wasn’t dreaming! It finally happened – We’re engaged!

Honestly, it was the best day of my life!
