You remember the first proposal? It may have been in a quiet room just the two of you or it may have been at an odd venue at the most unexpected moment. Doing the most unexpected to hear the three-letter word from the love of your life.
Some of us go to the extent of adding a wow factor to the occasion. From something as simple as proposing under the moonlight or for those who have the means, at a chalet in the Alps on a beautiful winter morning.
Ours was a concert for Mariah Carey 15 years ago. It came as simple as it could. After dating more than a few months, we decided to take it to another level.
I’m sure most of us are suckers for “happily ever afters”. We fall in love with love itself. Which may be both a good and bad thing at the same time. Good thing if the love story has a happy ending. Bad if it’s a temporary yes and plans fall apart eventually.
Falling in love is a wonderful feeling. But it doesn’t mean that we fall in love just because we need to. Or saying yes because of the sexual attraction.
It’s a beautiful reminder than saying yes is committing to the relationship come hell or high water. It’s during the worst of times that the relation is tested and surviving those worst of times make these relations end with #forever stories.
What’s your love story?
