Is fluther an appropriate medium for proposing marriage?
Hey slow down…maybe you don’t think it’s a great question, but it is my first question here on fluther. I suppose I should point out that I have not been bashful submitting well over 700 responses, so I guess turnaround is fair play. But I am a relatively old man so I plead for kind but honest responses. And for you traditionalists: this will not be the first marriage for either one of us, we’ve been living together for about five years, I already gave her a very, very expensive ring and to be honest, she has practically proposed to me (I succeeded in avoiding a direct response). So I thought I would do it a bit differently and share the moment with our old fluther friends, rather than going with other previously utilized (by others) media such as renting a billboard, skywriting or via an announcer on a radio station or in the middle of a ballgame or some such event. Besides. I think she will get a kick out of it, with it being a very public, yet at the same time, a rather anonymous proposal (anonymous for you folks…I can assure you she knows who I am…I mean come on, wtf?!).
So. assuming (yeah, I know, I know) you approve, here goes:
Sccrowell, I carved the following words in stone and presented them to you some three or four years ago…they are as accurate and relevant today as they were then, even more so as they have withstood the test of time::
To my sweet & sexy Sherry (aside: there goes some of your anonymity, but hey, you blew that long ago with your username):
Whose beauty, kindness, understanding, love and encouragement gives me the inspiration to not just persevere, but to continue to grow & learn, to create & dream, to laugh & love. My love for you is eternal, sweetheart! Gary XOX (aside: OK, to be fair, there goes some of my anonymity, and let me point out that I use the word “anonymity” even though it is one of those that honestly tongue-ties me and always successfully avoids proper pronunciation).
Well sccrowell, will you marry me, wtf?
