Popeater just posted a story about the way in which Seth Rogen proposed to his longtime girlfriend, Lauren Miller. He told Conan O’ Brien that “despite his romantic intentions, he ended up popping the question to his girlfriend when she was topless in the bedroom. Seth said, ”She was in our closet, changing, and she was literally only in her underpants. I had already kind of started [to propose]. … I didn’t picture it like this, and I know she didn’t picture it like this.”
I think this story is really sweet and definitely emblematic of Rogen’s unconventional, somewhat bumbling, well-intentioned style. I can picture him so nervous that he just kept going, trying to get the words out, even though his girlfriend was in the middle of getting dressed. I also think this is an incredibly likely and realistic story. I wonder how many sweet and romantic proposal stories we’ve heard, actually have embarrassing or salacious details left out. Not many people are like Rogen, who would openly share that detail of his proposal story. I wonder when couples tell the story of their engagement to their grandchildren, how much of the story has actually been changed.
Do you know of any unconventional/embarrassing/funny/unsavory/salacious engagement stories? Or any “normal” engagement stories that you suspect have had details left out?
