I actually just did that same thing right before I got engaged in december. I was more scared of telling her mom after I asked permission from her dad. I am a proper little southern boy though, still say "yes sir/ma'am" and "no sir/ma'am." I would get punished if I didn't mind my manners as a kid. It's sorta sad that people being respectful is surprising in this world.
