Women Proposing

Since it's not really traditional for women to propose marriage to men, you rarely hear stories about it happening. Some people think it's taboo for women to do it. I say why not?

If you want a memorable engagement take matters into your own hands—if you wait for him to do it you have no room to complain if it’s not what you wanted.

BUT don't make it all about you. I'm sure guys personalize it for the women, so the women should do the same. Well, just don't do that tacky, down on one knee proposal. It's ok for the guys to do it but since women don't go out and propose that often, it should be different, in my opinion.

Personally, I don't plan on getting married. I don't think that life is for me. But if my plans change, I would totally serenade a song to my guy, whoever that may(not)be. That's greedy of me though, since I love music and to sing horribly, lol. It's not like I can personalize it anyway. I'm single and plan to stay that way for a while.

The song I would sing is Andar Conmigo by Julieta Venegas. Yep, definitely greedy of me, haha. I love her, she is a genius.

How many singers out there can rock out an accordion?

Supposedly, there's been a rise in women proposing marriage. I'd love to hear stories about brave women who broke the mold and proposed to the love of their lives. *sigh* Anyone out there?? lol

I think because men are the ones who generally drag their feet on the way to the aisle, it's traditionally best for them to do the proposing. But there are more and more cases of women being feet-draggers. My theory on it is, the person who finds it most daunting to take that step should do the proposing.

This is a freaking fabulous looking site! You don't allow followers?

I am not a big marriage guy, my parents kind of tarnished the institution by having 9 between them. I think that if a relationship is strong, that marriage will grow out of it, regardless of who needs to propose. I think it is ok for either party to do so!

I followed your blog through my dashboard. Do you not want a follower box?

I guess I could put up a follower box. I just never really got around to it.

I saw an accordion in Mad Men this weekend. I need to find one live. They are so cool.

After seeing a couple friends get divorced, I would never ever marry again. JUST FREAKING NUTS!!! I want to be able to just freaking walk out when ever I feel like it with my car in my own name and my credit cards in just my name too.

Otin suggested that I pop over for a visit. Nice to meet you :-)
