TOLU'S DIARY - WHY ARE LADIES SHOCKED DURING PROPOSALS?

TUESDAYS 10AM


          WHY ARE LADIES SHOCKED DURING PROPOSALS?
Hi diary,
It’s the season of love! St. Valentines’ day is celebrated every 14th of February to mark the lovers’ day. Old lovers especially the so-called busy types use this time to hang out with their partners. New lovers are enchanted by the season as everyone turns a poet or postman as they write romantic lines and deliver lovely gifts to their partner. One of the best gifts that can be given during this period is that which your partner has to reply ‘yes, I do’.
I saw some folks at an eatery sometime ago. The man proposed to his lady and I was surprised to see the lady shocked as she also screamed. My younger brother once asked me, ‘why are ladies shocked during proposals? It’s as if the ladies brains are always on tour during the dating’, he concluded jokingly. I laughed and also shared my views on the subject. I assume for you to have been dating someone and it’s a serious one, you don’t have to be shocked when your man proposes to you. It might be a thing of joy if you consider yourself finally off the market. I suggested and replied “the lady might be a ‘Methuselah’ in the relationship. She must have been in that relationship for ages past so she has to be surprised”. In this regard, electric shock could be allowed.
It is traditional for the man to make a proposal to a woman directly while genuflecting in front of her. It involves the formal asking of the question “will you marry me?” and the presentation of an engagement ring.
 I believe the man should be the shocked party if the woman declined. The woman is likely to decline a proposal for various reasons. Well, as one of my friend will say “is it your shock?”. On a serious note, can my female readers tell me the reason for the shock displayed during proposals? I’m looking forward to your feedbacks.
See you again guys.
