Will you marry me?
This is probably the breathtaking question a woman without a doubt wants to hear the most from the guy she loves. Once asked, her heart will surely skip a beat and tears then start running down her cheeks. What more when that guy kneels down in front of the crowd as he pops the question. Roses shaped into a big heart, romantic music plays all along, then of course that ring being taken out of that romantic guy’s pocket. Things like these are a woman’s dream proposal. Correct me if I’m wrong. 😀 My admiration to all the guys out there who are thoughtful, romantic, and courageous enough to do such risky, romantic flick-like proposal. Did I just say risky? LOL 😀
August 13, 2015: evening in Hong Kong (after having a wonderful day in Disneyland)
ME: Wow! I really had a good time! How about you?
HIM: Yeah~ I’m glad to hear that. (all smiles)
ME: What was your favorite?
HIM: Space mountain
Chatting went on….
HIM: But I think Tokyo Disneyland is way better. (because he lives in Japan)
ME: Really? Wow! I wish I could go there someday.
HIM: Of course you can!
ME: (thinking about visa application) Hmm..how?
HIM: M a r r y m e…. (that serious face though)
And there I was… speechless..trying to consider what he said. Silence covered up the room for a few moment. That awkward moment though. 😀 Gazing at his bright serious looking face, it occurred to me that he wasn’t pulling my leg. The way he looked me in the eyes, something was there telling me that this guy was waiting for my response. The moment he said those words, I felt like the birds surprisingly flew off a tree. I wasn’t scared at all but I was taken by surprise. A big surprise! Ask me why..
I wasn’t surprised because of that. I was amazed by the fact that he has changed his mind. Before we got into this serious relationship, we talked about marriage and at that time he wasn’t into it. His plan was just to live with a partner outside marriage. That was his ideal kind of relationship which was totally the opposite of what I’ve been hoping for. Joy blew me away. I didn’t know how to tell him that he is the one I want to spend the rest of my life with.
Remember this POST? Now, this man has made me realize that it’s not about how romantic a guy is, but it’s about the intention.
To the one I want to grow old with:
Baby, I am marrying you not because of Tokyo Disneyland but because you deserve to be truly loved and I think I can be that someone. Can’t wait to start a whole new world with you. ❤
