The Proposal

gosh i am such a hopeless romantic and i often get carried away on YouTube: Proposal videos.

now me, being an avid reader and all have dreamed of my proposal for a long time. well, since reading Anne of Green Gables. which was a while ago. anyways, of course i COULD propose to him, nothing is stopping me except i am a HOPELESS ROMANTIC AND WOULD LIKE HIM TO PROPOSE TO ME.

wow. I’m acting as if there IS someone in my life.

well aside from Peeta Mellark. who doesn’t exist.

or Josh Hutcherson who doesn’t know of my existence and isn’t ready for that sort of commitment as yet.

so whoever my future husband is: TAKE NOTES. actually i hope he never finds my blog. that would just be too *cringe*

so anyhew, here are some wonderfully cheesy but adorably cute and just swoonworthy proposals

i don’t necessary want anything grand. just thoughtful and cute.

that is SO CUTE and funny. i would have run up to him immediately!!!!

now this one is hilarious because her REACTION is brilliant. =D

and the song is perfect. ❤

Marry You by Bruno Mars….the song is cute but ‘it’s a beautiful night we’re looking for something dumb to do…’ so marriage is NOT DUMB but yeah. anyhew his dancing is pretty damn fine.

and it’s adorable. these are thoughtful dudes. i wish them all the best and a long, happy, blessed marriage. Ameen.

oh and if you haven’t read this already then here is why you should date a girl who reads:

“Date a girl who reads. Date a girl who spends her money on books instead of clothes. She has problems with closet space because she has too many books. Date a girl who has a list of books she wants to read, who has had a library card since she was twelve.

Find a girl who reads. You’ll know that she does because she will always have an unread book in her bag. She’s the one lovingly looking over the shelves in the bookstore, the one who quietly cries out when she finds the book she wants. You see the weird chick sniffing the pages of an old book in a second hand book shop? That’s the reader. They can never resist smelling the pages, especially when they are yellow.

She’s the girl reading while waiting in that coffee shop down the street. If you take a peek at her mug, the non-dairy creamer is floating on top because she’s kind of engrossed already. Lost in a world of the author’s making. Sit down. She might give you a glare, as most girls who read do not like to be interrupted. Ask her if she likes the book.

Buy her another cup of coffee.
Let her know what you really think of Murakami. See if she got through the first chapter of Fellowship. Understand that if she says she understood James Joyce’s Ulysses she’s just saying that to sound intelligent. Ask her if she loves Alice or she would like to be Alice.

It’s easy to date a girl who reads. Give her books for her birthday, for Christmas and for anniversaries. Give her the gift of words, in poetry, in song. Give her Neruda, Pound, Sexton, Cummings. Let her know that you understand that words are love. Understand that she knows the difference between books and reality but by god, she’s going to try to make her life a little like her favorite book. It will never be your fault if she does.

She has to give it a shot somehow.
Lie to her. If she understands syntax, she will understand your need to lie. Behind words are other things: motivation, value, nuance, dialogue. It will not be the end of the world.

Fail her. Because a girl who reads knows that failure always leads up to the climax. Because girls who understand that all things will come to end. That you can always write a sequel. That you can begin again and again and still be the hero. That life is meant to have a villain or two.

Why be frightened of everything that you are not? Girls who read understand that people, like characters, develop. Except in the Twilight series.

If you find a girl who reads, keep her close. When you find her up at 2 AM clutching a book to her chest and weeping, make her a cup of tea and hold her. You may lose her for a couple of hours but she will always come back to you. She’ll talk as if the characters in the book are real, because for a while, they always are.

You will propose on a hot air balloon. Or during a rock concert. Or very casually next time she’s sick. Over Skype.

You will smile so hard you will wonder why your heart hasn’t burst and bled out all over your chest yet. You will write the story of your lives, have kids with strange names and even stranger tastes. She will introduce your children to the Cat in the Hat and Aslan, maybe in the same day. You will walk the winters of your old age together and she will recite Keats under her breath while you shake the snow off your boots.

Date a girl who reads because you deserve it. You deserve a girl who can give you the most colorful life imaginable. If you can only give her monotony, and stale hours and half-baked proposals, then you’re better off alone. If you want the world and the worlds beyond it, date a girl who reads.

Or better yet, date a girl who writes.”

Happy Reading!!!

PEACE. LOVE. BOOKS =D

“You know you’re in love when you can’t fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.” Dr. Seuss

“Have you ever been in love? Horrible isn’t it? It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens up your heart and it means that someone can get inside you and mess you up.” Neil Gaiman

“Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.” Lao Tzu

“When someone loves you, the way they say your name is different. You know that your name is safe in their mouth.” Jess C. Scott

“No relationship is perfect, ever. There are always some ways you have to bend, to compromise, to give something up in order to gain something greater…The love we have for each other is bigger than these small differences. And that’s the key. It’s like a big pie chart, and the love in a relationship has to be the biggest piece. Love can make up for a lot.” Sarah Dessen

“Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.” Rumi
