Straight Nate Shares Story Of How He Proposed Over The Holiday

After a rough start to the holiday season, having a stroke that had him recovering in the hospital for a month, Straight Nate ended his holiday by proposing to his girlfriend Heather. He writes on Instagram announcing their engagement, January 5th, 2020, "She’s saved my life enough that I need to keep her around forever..."

How did Nate propose exactly? During a segment of headlines from members of the show, Nate described when he wanted to propose and how he ended up proposing 5 days later than he thought!

I had wanted to do it on New Year’s Day because fresh start, I didn’t have a very good 2019. I figured alright let’s start 2020 off right. However, she started her period that day, so she was not in the best of moods. She was very angry about something minor. I’m like ‘today is not the day.’ So then I figured two days later we did a city day, I had to run some errands, go to a doctor’s appointment. Figured okay, we’ll be in the same neighborhood where we had our first apartment, memories. The subway up there, this guy took his shoe off. I am not kidding. And the smell was toxic. There is no way a human being could make that smell. So that’s all we could talk about for the next two hours. So I’m like ‘I can’t do it now.’ So fast forward to last night, we were talking about this and that. And talking about our lease because our lease is up at our apartment. She’s asking like ‘Well, what are we doing here?’ And so, she asked me ‘well, how long do you want to sign the lease for?’ And I just figured this is the moment. And I go, ‘Well, how ‘bout we sign it forever?’ And I pulled out the ring, and she started crying. And that was it. It wasn’t how I planned it. It wasn’t the grand vision I had in my head. But, it was just a moment that worked. She said yes, and then I let you guys know. Called her parents. I didn’t get nervous until afterwards. I don’t know if guys go through that. But, I just- she goes, ‘How were you so calm during this?’ But I figured you know, somebody that’s saved my life as many times as she has, I really just had to keep her around to do it again.
