Engagement? Better do it better than the movies
Water Water everywhere, and not any drop to drink… Samuel Coleridge
Love, Love everywhere… but no ring for me to wear
Ever felt like everyone around you has suddenly gotten into some kind of engagement fiasco? Sometimes you even reach a point of feeling; if you hear the word engagement again, you might snap and buy yourself an engagement ring for show!
Your perfect partner could be online right now...
What are you looking for?
Much as they say marriage is like a mousetrap – those in are struggling to get out and those out are dying to get in – trap or not, sometimes you can hardly wait to wear that piece of rock on your finger. It’s all part of being human I guess. When you got freedom, you seek restraint and we flutter for freedom when restrained.
Recently, some lady I know got engaged. And you think it was just like in the movies… man on one knee holding a diamond ring? WRONG! Think again. It was a case of reversed roles; she proposed to her dude. He said yes and they both exchanged engagement rings… Even Hollywood didn’t see that one coming ;-)
And then there was this dude who made his proposal video atop Table Mountains in South Africa. Apparently, the flat-topped mountain has been voted one of the world’s best sites to pop the question. Someone give me some tissue… am getting a lil’ misty :cry:
Engagements are big things for women… I need not emphasize on it. But what do you do when the man in your life takes it lightly? I remember my uncle proposing to the wife (then girlfriend) in 2000. “Have you told your parents you are getting married in December?᾿ That was it. No ring, no getting down on one knee. That was her proposal. Would you have said yes?
Don’t you think the day you say yes to spending the rest of your life with a guy – forsaking all others - deserves a ceremony? Don’t some guys realize that a girl wants some newsworthy story which you hope to tell the tale to your grand children? It doesn’t have to be some Oscar winning show - a script would do though. ;-) I think when it comes to prosing, the likes of my uncle should remember that romantic is not just a period in the history of Art; it is something we women expect men to be.
Is it too much to ask of you not to tag your boy-band to marvel your prowess? And if you blurt out “Will you marry me?᾿ on our first date, there is only one answer to that question. NO!!? You guessed right.
