Is a Twitter Proposal Even Mildly Acceptable?

He asked me... by Porcelaingirl°...

This month marks the one-year anniversary for the first ever marriage proposal on Twitter.  I thought I’d seen just about everything, but this definitely causes me to reconsider that thought.

Its scary how plugged in we can get.  I certainly don’t want to judge how other people choose to form a union.  But, are we so irreversibly ‘connected’ nowadays that we can’t spare the time it would take to propose in person?

Maybe its no biggy.  Maybe I’m just being old-fashioned.  Maybe a proposal on Twitter is the same as a proposal on no particular day in the supermarket for no particular reason.  Maybe it just has to mean something to the two people getting engaged.  Maybe.

Would you accept a proposal on Twitter?  What about Facebook or MySpace? Is our society so ‘progressive’ these days that these types of proposals are even mildly acceptable? Please share your comments.

    I am sure there was a time where People thought

    “OMG, he asked her for her hand in marriage without her father’s consent?! HOW HORRIBLE!”

    What you are viewing is not that you are old fashioned, just that you are getting old.

    The younger generation of today see the digital world as an extension of the real world, not an awkward addition to it. Cell phone texting, twittering, facebook status … all of this is just part of communicating with friends and an extension of who they are.

      @ James – Yeah, i am definitely getting older. And although I also see the digital world as an extension of the real world, if I were 25 today instead of 35, I’d still be the kind of girl that wouldn’t marry the kind of guy that would propose on Twitter.
