I was just perusing the internet looking for a good topic for tonight when I stumbled on a list of all the things you should do immediately after your fiancé proposes. The list was all common sense stuff, but the first item was to tell your friends and family. Immediately. That gave me pause. What if you didn’t? What if for a few hours or a few days it was just your secret? It sounds like kind of a suspicious question and one that is null and void if you were proposed to in front of your friends and family, but I think it’s worth asking.
Perhaps it depends on what kind of person you are and what kind of couple you are, but in a day and age when information spreads so quickly and sweet private moments become public in the blink of an eye, isn’t it worth savoring that news for just a little while?
If that big moment is yet to come for you maybe when it happens you will pause for a moment. Maybe you won’t immediately pick up your phone and call someone. Why? Because you’ll want to take it all in. You’ll want that moment and that feeling to last and not be interrupted. Think about it; as soon as the cat is out of the bag then your celebration is public. You won’t be able to stop people from calling and congratulating you and begging for details. But before the story breaks you are the one in the know and that is a pretty special feeling.
Or maybe you’ll tell everyone and that will be wonderful, too. Or maybe they knew about it before you did!
