Couple Gets Engaged Via Twitter

couple engaged using vineIf you’re hiring a videographer, enlisting your friends to do some choreography, or engaging in any other sort of behavior that’s not the norm in order to pop the question, you may be doing it all wrong. While I enjoy a good proposal video, many of the ones I have seen range from 5-10 minutes. Today I learned to create a proposal video worthy of a yes and you don’t even need 5 to 10 minutes. Six seconds will be just fine.

According to a Daily Mail article, Curt Buthman popped the question to his girlfriend Marsha Collier via Twitter. There was no flash mob or jumbotron and from the looks of it he wasn’t lip synching either. Instead it was Curt, 160 characters or less and the 6 second video he created on Vine.

His story is an example that sometimes you can say a lot without saying much at all. It also speaks to the fact that not every woman wants or has to have an elaborate proposal. Proposals should be something special for the couple first and foremost, not done purely as a form entertainment for the rest of the world. And that is why I commend Curt for his simple take on popping the question. Despite being anything but the status quo, it was reflective of him and his fiancée’s personality. I personally love the idea of being with the person while you propose but if you read the tweets and watch the video it is evident that both were nothing short of happy with the things that transpired throughout the twittersphere.

Curt proposed while Marsha was conducting an “online discussion with Twitter users about customer service.” Her response was yes and subsequently numerous Twitter followers offered their congratulations and praises to her fiancé for his proposal, referred to as a “bold move” by Daily Mail.
