Elite Daily- But no matter how creative, very few seem to capture the individuality and personality of the relationship. They’re all filled with sweeping gestures and red roses and universal symbols of love. But every couple is different, so how their love is expressed should be different with every proposal.
That’s why this proposal video is my new favorite. It’s genuine and not the least bit presumptuous.
Contrary to popular belief, I am not completely against the grand romantic gesture. I can respect this. I can barely piece together a desk chair that has instructions. Instructions that come with numbered steps, lettered pieces, and illustrations. It is basically the adult equivalent of a coloring book and I still become enraged after 5 minutes. So yeah, I respect Tim 'The Tool Man' Taylor 'whipping up' an armoire like a boss. Probably took him the better part of the year.
My problem with this is where does he go from here? This broad would have married him if he threw the ring at her feet and said "what'd ya think?". She saw a goddamn piece of wood and went into hysterics. Don't need to use your fastball on this one you ol' southpaw. The ring was enough. Can't go back now bud. You set the precedent too high. You think you can just buy her a bullshit box of chocolates on Valenetine's Day now? She knows your capabilities. Better start building that house she'll be expecting by the one year anniversary. Just wait until the relationship goes stale and she pulls the "remember when you loved me so much that you built me an armoire" gig. Enjoy the "what happened to us" conversation. As you will soon learn, it is not the gift that keeps on giving. She will love that piece of furniture up until the next time you tell her to relax..
How dumb is this girl by the way? Did she think it was just her lucky day? That her boyfriend built her an armoire from scratch, and filled it with all her favorite things, on a whim? This had proposal written all over it. There is about 10-12 close friends and family members video taping this whole scene. Why would anyone do that if all it was was the presentation of a piece of furniture? If I was that girl I would have asked where the ring was by the second drawer. In fact, if this wasn't a proposal then that girl would have every right to flip the fuck out. That's how obvious the end game was here.
P.S. I'm going desk shopping next week, anyone want to come tape the experience? No ring, but I guess I'll pay for lunch.
And now, some great proposals…just for the hell of it...
