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?

Fake It ‘Til You Make It: Why So Many Men Are Admitting To Faking Orgasms

I, personally, have never faked an orgasm while in between the sheets. The way I see it, engaging in intercourse and not finishing lacks as much motivation as smoking “a certain substance” without inhaling (cough, Bill Clinton, ahem). But, hey – just because I haven’t done something certainly doesn’t mean it’s never been done before. […]

How The Commonality Of Divorce Taught Me To Love Differently

As Millennials, we have grown up in the era of Disney movies, “The Notebook” and Carrie Bradshaw all telling us that we should not settle for anything less than butterflies, and true love will conquer all.
