    We confess, we're total saps when it comes to love. So, when we stumbled upon HowHeAsked, a site that features some seriously heart-warming proposal stories from newly engaged couples, we were hooked. Every week, we'll be featuring one of their tear-jerkers, curated by the couples themselves — even if she did the asking.

    Picture a crowded bookstore on a rainy Seattle Sunday. I was in the cafe reading when I happened to notice a very cute boy sitting at the table next to me. Like most cafes in Seattle, this one had art hanging on the walls. Directly above me was a pair of blue jeans splattered with paint and, next to them, a label that read: the artist’s jeans. Pretentious, right?

    Anyway, thinking I’m being clever, I lean over the very cute boy and say, “Do you think the artist actually wore those while he painted? Or, do you think he just splattered a pair of jeans with paint, framed them, and called it a day?”

    Well, the boy (who was Ron, in case you haven’t figured it out) looked up from his sketchbook, examined the jeans, and said, “That’s how my jeans look when I paint.”

    How he asked: Four years later the boy is still cute and I still live with my foot perpetually in my mouth.
