Poll: Would You Accept a Facebook Marriage Proposal?

I thought no proposal could be more cringeworthy than Jeff Miranda proposing to Snooki via the cover of a New Jersey nightlife magazine, but I was wrong. A man named D. proposed to his girlfriend Breeze in his Facebook status update. She accepted in a comment on the update. Is it true romance in the age of the internet, or is it impersonal?

Sorry! This poll is now closed.

      ahhhh that is so horrible. it’s not even the beginning of the message…it’s buried in there. jesus, that makes me cringe.

      I wonder if they’ll seek divorce lawyers through facebook as well?

      Different strokes, I suppose. Some go for the dinner date, some go for Facebook, I go for lounging on the couch eating chips and playing Black Ops rather than going out and making real friends.

      I don’t necessarily like the idea of a proposal like that… but really if you love someone should the way they propose matter? It might have been a joke to get the ball started, or maybe their relationship started via a facebook message or something kitschy. I wouldn’t like to be proposed to like that, but if the man I loved asked, then I wouldn’t say no. I might just tease them for the rest of their life about a lame proposal :)

      Maybe if we’d already decided to get married and the actual “proposal” was just a formality…although, no, wait, I’d still want to be asked 1) in person and 2) in private. The only Facebook marriage proposal I’d be okay with is a relationship request from my already-husband.

      I’ve personally known this couple for years and they are amazing people. Everyone jumping to conclusions and making negative comments are jackasses. They met years ago online, having been living together for quite some time, and he was sitting right beside her on the couch when he asked via Facebook. The actual exchange took place in person, and considering how they first met online it was appropriate. Sheesh… You all need to take life a little less seriously and ‘don’t judge a book by it’s cover’
