Why I Chose To Record My Proposal in Front of 100 Strangers
Believe it or not, when I decided to record one of the most personal and intimate moments of my life and share it on social media, I really wasn't thinking about myself. In the age where our lives are being dominated by social media is there such a thing as over sharing? Recently, I decided to take a huge step forward in my relationship with the love of my life. I bought the ring and planned on taking her out to dinner at a nice restaurant. I wanted to keep it small and intimate.
Though I wanted to keep it private, being in the media gave me this slight amount of pressure to make it a spectacle. I thought I'd keep the moment to ourselves. I didn't come up with the final decision until I consulted with her girlfriends and I'm glad I did.
Her friends politely suggested that she would appreciate the pictures and the memories later. I didn't argue as I agree. You see proposals online all of the time, right? I guess in a way mine wasn't any more special or different than anyone else's. It was still pretty simple. Others may find posts like that annoying and maybe a little conceited, but it really isn't. We can literally look back on it decades from now and we even got to share the moment with some of our closest friends and a restaurant full of strangers. Luckily, I'm used to entertaining an audience. SPOILER ALERT: She said "yes."
