Ladies, I don't know about yourselves or whether you have ever been in this situation, but have you ever booked a holiday with a partner and all of your friends go, "Oooh, you think he'll pop the question???" To which you are like, "Errr, I dunno? Maybe? Maybe not?" THEN you can't help but think after, "Oh my gosh, will he or won't he?" And when he doesn't you're disappointed to shit. Please note... this has NEVER happened to me, but I have known it happen to others. Couples have been together for years, friends or family plant ideas in their heads that MAYBE it will happen when you go away or at a big event and then it doesn't happen. You know what I blame? Movies. Like EVERY single fecking romantic film out there. Women watch these no matter if they are single, in a relationship and dragging their partner to the cinema to see it, feeling happy, bitter towards an ex or just simply hopeful that this will actually happen in real life. Unfortunately, most people think these story lines ACTUALLY happen. I'm just going to tell you all now... THEY DON'T (I'm sorry). The truth of the matter is (and as cheesy as this is going to sound), we all make our own love stories... altogether now! "AHHHHH!"
Any couple you ask about 'how they met?' is going to sound nice to everyone else. Fact. It can be anything. It could be something like, "Well! He used to tease me in school and then he asked me out on a night out and we just hit it off!" - AHHHHH! "Well we met through a mutual friend, we then became best friends and discovered we loved each other!" - AHHHHH! "He threw a pile of dog shit on me and then felt bad and cleaned it off me!" - AHHHHH! (Last one is a joke and not based on true events).
I think every woman has an idea in their own heads of how they would want to be proposed. Some woman aren't even sure if they want marriage but like the idea of being proposed to and some woman would get married more than once whether that be renewing their vows or meeting someone else. The fact is, it doesn't matter how it happens, or how you met, what history you have - when the person you love and see spending the rest of your life with them proposes to you, you're going to say yes. You could experience love at first sight or have a very prolonged awakening of who it is you want to spend your life with - love is love. It is the strongest emotion you will ever experience and EVERYONE experiences it.
Look at me babbling soppy shit? I know. Here's some funny images that made me laugh hard on Valentines day:
You know I love to hear your stories, especially if you have ever been proposed to ladies. Fire away at me at the usual places on here, Facebook or Twitter.
I'm going to dedicate this song to my sister and future brother-in-law! Massive congratulations again to the beautiful couple! Here's Clean Bandit Featuring Jess Glynne with Rather Be. Love you guys xxx.
