You Won’t Believe How This Guy Proposed!
I’m all about utilizing social media to its fullest extent and after dragging my feet on joining the bandwagon, I’m slowly falling in love with Twitter (hit me up @djtracitaylor), but this could quite possibly be the perfect example of taking love of social media a little too far.
It’s been said that you can say everything you need to say in 140 characters. I agree and I disagree. Most of the time less is more, but I differ on that when it comes to love. When it comes to love and oh, I don’t know- asking someone to marry you- sometimes more is better. I think.
Curt Buthman proposed to girlfriend Marsha Collier and he did it in 140 characters on Twitter. No my friends, I couldn’t make this up. Actually I could, but if you know me- you know I wouldn’t because I take asking for someone’s hand in marriage for the rest of forever very seriously. I’m not a throw it out there and shrug your shoulders and say “sure, whatever” kinda girl.
Apparently Marsha was in the middle of a Twitter chat about customer service when Curt interrupted the conversation by tweeting “@marshacollier I love you! #WillYouMarryMe custserv.” Curt also linked to a six-second video (that’s it down there below) in which he displayed the ring. Marsha responded by tweeting, “Um, uh, YES @curtbuthman – I will MARRY YOU! #custserv.”
When I first learned about the Twitter proposal I was like “whaaaaaat?!?” I found it completely unromantic and tacky. I still do a little bit, but “whatever floats your boat” they say.
BUT! Ha! There’s always a but, isn’t there?
While I wish Curt and Marsha a lifetime of love and bliss, I’m secretly hoping they kick it up a couple notches and chronicle their lives for us via Twitter. They’ve brought us into their lives this far and I don’t know about you, but I don’t love to have something dangled in front of my face only to be left hanging.
