    OK... I know this may not be the first engagement by a fortune cookie, but it's something I will never forget.

    We got engaged on August 1st, 2009. My fiancee asked me to marry him via a fortune cookie. I was talking to him on the phone while he was driving over to visit. I asked him if he wanted me to throw a couple of steaks on the grill for dinner and he said that he felt like going to a Chinese restaurant for dinner. So, I picked a place close to my house that neither of us had been to before.

    What I did not know is that my fiancee had this fortune cookie in his jacket pocket that he had specially ordered with a ring and fortune inside that said "XXXXX, Will You Marry Me". He also had the real engagement ring in his jacket pocket. His plans were to talk to the waitress and have her bring the fortune cookie to me at the end of the meal. But the restaurant was an open set-up, so he didn't get a chance to do pull her aside. At the end of the meal, we had our leftovers boxed up and went home.

    When we got home he was said, let's open our fortune cookies. He was pushing me to open mine first, which I thought was strange. When I opened the fortune cookie, I noticed that the fortune had my name on it; it said "XXXXX, will you marry me" and had a ring in it. He had my real engagement ring in a separate box. My engagement ring is garnet with diamonds around it and the band (garnet is my birthstone and diamond is his). My fiancee says the thing he will remember most about that day is that about 30 minutes after he proposed, I asked him, “Did I say Yes?”

    I was so proud of him for pulling it off and surprising me!

                    Props to your fiance for a cute engagement story! He sounds like a good planner - maybe would should involve him in the wedding planning
