Allow me to begin this post by stressing one rather important fact: “Some girls would not accept being proposed to on Twitter, I am one of those girls!”
Therefore, after having read the article about this guy’s Twitter proposal, I felt the need to express both my anger and disappointment about the way the heart felt, old-fashioned, traditional romance seems to be diminishing; washing away into oblivion, day by day!
I wonder now: What happened to the world, to us, to the sincere, highly valued well-planned events and occasions? What happened to the times when the man would go down on one knee, hide the ring in a champagne glass or even pop the question on the linescreen during a football game?
It is truly unnerving to me to think that real romance might be in a heavy coma, in a vegetable-like state, living on machines and wires, waiting for the final plug to be pulled!
Frankly, when I read the article that stimulated this response, my first reaction was: Social media is to blame, just like all the other mishaps and dysfunctions that have been blamed on social media. But after taking some time to think about it, I realized that it is our duty to protect what we believe in and care for; which is why I decided to bring this up here!
Therefore, in conclusion, I urge you to think about this and let me know what you think: Would you propose or accept a proposal through Twitter? Do you think romance is really being influenced by social media? Or is the way we are leading our hectic lives the main reason behind this?
