I'll be going through to edinburgh on saturday at some point, but can meet you first.
What time you heading through to the burgh?
Is that a bit early for beer/ are you going to fitba? (3pm KO for your lot I think).
Cool, well i have a big night out the night before but lets keep in touch and see if we canny grab a swift one!
Or a lunchtime beer on Monday if better ;)
when you back from the burgh?
I'm back up from 8th-17th Feb if that's better?
Would rather a decent swally than just grabbin a quick beer! :)
It didn't work out, I've gone off the whole concept now.
Firstly I want to be taken out for burgers and cocktails and stuff then I want to go to a park (its summer) and someone we know will let loose a little fluffy white kitten who will have a lime green collar on and on the collar is my ring (vintage silver ring with a green emerald) and the cat runs up to me (cause my future fiance has rubbed my clothes with cat nip without me knowing) and i pick it up and see the ring and then look up and my fiance will be there on one knee and ask if I could grace him with his presence for the rest of his life and I'll say 'well do I get to keep the kitty?' and he'll say 'yes his name is Colin' and I'll go 'awwwwww YES OF COURSE' and we'll snog and then he'll give me some of those lindt chocolate balls <3
Women truly are different creatures to men. Men have never, ever thought about this (unless they're planning on actually proposing and have to) but have definitely bashed one out thinking about about shagging their girlfriend's sister. And possibly their mum.
MEN LOVE WEDDINGS AND GETTING MARRIED TOO YOU KNOW!! Jeez Moker, you need to get out of this hetronormative bubble you're in. ITS 2013!!!!
*goes home and bashes one out over Sexism Monthly*
why you would want to snog a kitten caled colin
I think if a girl ever said this to me and wasn't joking, I'd assume that they were a grade A bunny-boiler.
Non-genuine would be a lot higher
He is joking though. I think. (hope)
Mine got married pretty young by today's standards (dad was 23, mum was 21, having met two years earlier), but both of my parents had been engaged to other people before they met each other. Think they were both 16/17 at the time, but it always surprised me a little.
Were broken engagements more common in those days?
My dad asked my mum after about 5 years whether she'd prefer a holiday or an engagement ring so she said a ring and he said he was happy as he only offered the holiday as a back up in case my mum said she didn't want to marry my dad but they'd still get to go on holiday together.
She broke it off with the guy to be with my dad. The last time she saw the guy she left? AS SHE WAS DRIVING TO THE CHURCH ON HER WEDDING DAY.
but horrifically recalled proposing to two chicks in my mid/late teens, once when 14, once when 17. Bought rings on both occasions (£20 & £50, respectively). Both said yes, both dumped me within about three months.
In hindsight, "wow, out of my league here, better get a ring on this" 'proposals'. Neither considered real relationships by my adult self. Bit silly, really, but then i guess most proposals come out of insecure ballbag guys being insecure.
if you weren't so ancient.
I sincerely doubt it love.
I found my proposals excruciating. The first time I said no, because it was a relaTIONSHIP THAT WAS DYING ASND HE PROPOSED TO TRY TO SAVE IT (woops caps) and we broke up almost immediately. The second time i said nothing and he took my stuning silence to be, if not acceptanc,e acquiescence.
I'm not sure I'm ok with the idea of a traditional proposal. QUite aparty from the obvious cringey-mess of it, it implies that I'm waiting around for a guy to decide that he wants to be with me for the long haul, and I think that's a decision that we should come to gradually and together and not be a unilateral thing. I think anybody proposing to me would go way down in my estimation actually and i think I'd find it insulting. Probably academic in my case as I think marriage is stupid too, but anyway....
and public proposals are just positively evil.
My dad, ever the romantic, discussed it with my mum beforehand, arranging the date on which he would 'propose.'
look up proposal rejections on youtube.
hours of fun.
She's WAY hotter than him.
the mascot consoling him is still brilliant
he stood on a bridge and sang 'Girl I wanna marry you'.
She said yes- idiot.
...during Arcade Fire at Hyde Park the other year - she said yes. Can't remember what tune it was during, but assume it was 'their song'.
Don't really "get" marriage
......but married nonetheless :D
by getting a t shirt printed with their face on it, and under it says. MARRIAGE? Then I'll just get up one morning and put it on, not referring to or acknowleging it until i get the desired response. I would either continue putting it on every day or vary the routine by getting ones with my face and a tick next to it. MARRIAGE. TICK.
This would continue for as long as it took till it seemed an utterly silly idea, but yet, a day without me and MARRIAGE would be strange. I will take the shirt off only when we are actually married. MARRIAGE.
NB: I won't be doing any of this.
Well by 1 person but multiple times. Persistent guy.
