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.
