- Wedding: November 1999
Just curious as to the statistics of Valentine’s Day proposals. All my life, this day has been crammed down my throat as a special romantic day that I refused to celebrate (but to be fair, I never had an amazing guy in my life to celebrate it with before I met my FI). Now that I’ve been wedding planning and reading so many threads on the WB board, it’s shocking to hear about the expectations people have on this day. So that brings me to my original question and poll.
Also, I’d love to hear any “waiting” bees’ thoughts on this. I’ve never quite understood the intense yearning to be proposed to because Fiance proposed 2 months after we started dating and we were already talking about someday getting married within the first few weeks of dating.. crazy I know. I suppose I could understand how some waiting bees were expecting a proposal during Christmas-time or the New Year but it didn’t happen so they now have their sights set on Valentine’s Day.. but what will you do if that day passes and nothing happens? What is technically the next big holiday to be proposed on? President’s Day? St. Patrick’s Day? What makes Christmas-time/New Year/Valentine’s Day so special? It all seems so strange to me.
Sorry for the length of this post and if it seems like I’m giving people who got engaged on Valentine’s Day (or expecting one) a hard time. I’m just genuinely curious and would love to hear your side of the story!
