I’m sure by now we’ve all noticed that the Internet is completely taking over our communication skills. People text over a phone call, news is shared via Twitter, not word of mouth and now, even proposals are becoming common over the Internet.
That’s right, marriage proposals. Online dating is now one of the most common ways to meet your significant other, but I never thought that people would keep their relationship on the Internet.
In a recent study conducted by Robbins Brothers, half of those studied said they’d be more than okay with an “electronic proposal.” The survey also found that two-thirds of respondents would allow their proposal to be recorded and posted on YouTube. One out of 10 people even stated that they would actually propose on YouTube.
I guess I’m the only hopeless romantic left who feels that a marriage proposal should be sacred and I don’t know, done in person? Where does the ring go? I’m so confused.
What do you think?
