No ringing - must be engaged
After a few chats about out future together it seemed clear to me that, whilst marriage, living together, starting a family etc were all going to be big challenges requiring a lot of thought and planning, both Ava and I were talking about, and assuming, a shared future. Simply getting engaged in itself seemed free of difficulties though, and a public sign of commitment. And where nicer to propose than over a meal beside the quietly lapping sea on an idyllic island? Once Ava was convinced it wasn't one of my jokes, she finally said "Yes". So that was a relief! We're not rushing into any further plans or dates just yet. We looked at engagement rings but couldn't find anything that we particularly liked, so that's something we'll shop for again, once we're back in Kunming perhaps.

Well yes, there was an initial proposal underwater... but that message didn't really get through amongst the bubbles! One tries to be original but....!!
