I am engaged!!!
Mark this day in history…
_ _ _ _ asked me to marry him…
and I said YES!
We are officially engaged today,
1st of March 2009.
Am sooo happy!!!
Oh well, I got that text message from a friend yesterday. Akala nyo ako na noh?! Haller, may BF ba ako??? Hehehe!
I didn’t reply back immediately as it was an international text. Mahal magreply eh! Ang kuripot ko talaga! I was a bit busy yesterday when I got that SMS. So, when I saw my friend online this morning, I didn’t think twice buzzing her. I wanted to know the details of THE PROPOSAL.
From that short online conversation, I could feel how ecstatic my friend was. And I was extremely happy for her.
I have already heard slash read from others in singleton that they normally feel sad for themselves whenever they learn a single friend is leaving the wonderful world of singlehood. It would mean less friends for gimmick, less friends to call onto whenever they need a shoulder to cry on and less friends for some on-the-spot chat or trip to the mall.
Those thoughts do not quite apply to me though. What came to my mind was this: How does a woman feel when asked for marriage?
Obviously, I haven’t been in that situation. But if I were, would I really say yes? Or would I just freak out and ask for more time to think? I can’t answer that yet just now. Let’s wait and see. LOL!
Learning about the details of my friend’s proposal, my being a hopeless romantic suddenly surfaced. I again thought of the marriage proposal that I have been dreaming about for quite sometime now. It doesn’t just involve a bouquet of sunflower (yep, no red roses for me! i prefer those bright big flowers) and a princess cut diamond ring in platinum band (lulubus-lubusin ko na, platinum kung plantinum! LOL!). I hope for it to happen at the Eiffel Tower… yes, in Paris, France! Euro-proposal ito!!! My goodness, I need to get my visa… as in now na! LOL!
Ok, ok! Back to reality…
I have never really thought I would ever experience being asked of that “Will you marry me?” or “Will you be mine for the rest of my life?” question. At this point, I’m still not sure if there would be one brave soul strong enough to throw that statement at me. I’m still thinking if there would ever come a time a guy would actually realize that he can’t live the rest of his life without me. Oh well, those are just some of the questions that run through my mind from time to time.
Since that unlucky bastard isn’t around yet (or maybe he already is, LOL!), I will for the meantime continue on living the life of a happy single lass and enjoy my life to the fullest. 😛
