look before you leap

i just found out today for the first time that the leap day tradition is that the women proposes to the men.

gosh isn't that scary? i mean i already have enough problems as it is trying to call a guy or even ask him out. ask him to marry me?? that definitely brings new meaning to the word "leap"!

not that i have anyone i would even ask to marry (i'm still working on the whole asking him out thing... and him being any arbituary him of a guy who happens to catch my fancy...), but i can't help but wonder if i don't do it (whatever it is) today, then would i have to wait for another 4 years? when i'm that "ripe old age" of 32...

well i guess i'm just hoping that it all happens for me the traditional way (as opposed to the leap day traditional way). where essentially the guy "does all the work".

better yet if he actually calls and asks me out...

(disclaimer: this only works if i actually like this him that i speak of... unlike youthful-looking guy who has called me every single day this week and i have missed every single of his calls on purpose)

Interesting! A radio station had a couple on this morning who were planning on taking a "leap of faith" and getting married today after dating for two months...

I'm not sure if it would be better or worse to have your anniversary once every 4 years.

ehhh. thats beyond scary. proposing to a man? just seems too creepy to fathom.

I dare blondie to take a leap of faith and make out with a random stranger at the bar tonight.

what are you doing for leap day this year?

blondie: well i've had a few friends who got married after dating for 2 months... okay so they got engaged... but they actually did get married not too long after. it's weird but that brings me some hope that perhaps i too could be married after knowing the guy for 2 months haha!

adatingdiary: is making out with a random stranger at the bar really such a leap of faith? haha! i didn't really do all that much for leap day... no making out with random strangers at the bar... darn! haha!

Oh my! I would rather chew glass than ask a boy out. The thought makes me want to throw up from fear.

Asking a guy to marry you - you have to be joking?!?
