    Yeah, I can understand that. I proposed to my wife in the Indianapolis Art Museum Gardens. I was peaceful, intimate and just the two of us. While there are no pictures of the event, we both can vividly remember everything. 


    We had been dating for over 5 years at that point, so she knew it was coming. Instead of trying to surprise her, I decided to make it the best possible moment. 


    Your thoughts on social media align with my own. It's honestly not real life. It's just a snapshot of things looking perfect, but it doesn't capture what is truly going on. 

    I think this instagram thing causes a lot of people to have anxiety......thinking everyone else's lives are perfect.


    I've also seen people getting hurt trying to get the perfect shot.


    I saw a proposal at winter lights last year.  We were watching the lights at the Lilly house and a guy takes his girl friend by the hand and leads her out onto the lawn with the light show, gets down on one knee and proposes


    The whole crowd cheered.  It was V Romantic

    I can absolutely agree with this.

    The more I think about this, I'm guessing the actual proposal must have happened elsewhere and this is just more of an engagement photo shoot. I think they're recreating a 'perfect proposal'


    I mean, nobody goes to the park dressed to the 9s with a professional photographer for a surprise proposal

    I definitely get that. I don't share much of anything on social media, but I had my brother and his girlfriend with us when I proposed. It was nice to have a picture of the moment and honestly, having them there made it more casual, so she didn't suspect a thing. I don't think it was any less romantic and since my brother's g/f made the picture into an xmas ornament (I proposed in early Dec), we get to be reminded of that moment year after year when we put up the tree. :)


    I'd imagine for a couple that puts a lot of their personal lives out in the open via social media and kind of chronicles their lives on YT, it's just normal. I'm not a very public person, but I'm also not a pro athlete. lol

    I feel like that's different.


    My son in law proposed on xmas at our house.  He had talked to everyone in the family first.  So, we all knew.

    He cut out the inside of a book and put the ring in it and wrapped it as an xmas gift.


    His son knew and video taped it.


    Neither of them were looking their best.  When she first opened the book, the ring popped out and a lot of the video is of them looking for the ring in the mess of wrapping paper on the floor.


    It was an imperfect moment shared with family but not social media.


    I feel like too many people are focused too much on projecting a perfect persona on social media.  Feels shallow to me.

    A lot of people hire photographers or get friends to take videos or pictures of this moment. But who cares? It’s none of our business how they took said picture. 


    congrats to the both of them. 

    Old fashioned I guess

    I want to believe Patmon just because they're such good buddies.

    I'm just saying it looks more for social media than romantic. But, maybe they were out with friends who were in on the proposal.  Great picture


    That said, not everything has to be shared

    Exactly. Though primary transmission is droplets and aerosols, it's not the only method. And we love to touch our faces (eyes, nose, mouth) subconsciously, and potentially let the virus in.

    I've been feeling lately that people wear a mask but don't wash their hands.

    I read a case study of contact tracing where they traced back to a garbage can lid that had covid. A guy touched it and then pressed an elevator button

    It went on infecting people from the button

    Yeah I don't even mind it either. This place actually gets my mind off the Covid and the election, etc.. We still have a good team to boot, can't lose to the Bengals though. We lose to the Bengals, my guess is you will be deleting some posts Lmao Lol GIF by Originals

    Honestly, I enjoyed the Browns game.  We weren't good enough but it wasn't boring

    Way too much boredom these days.

    You're right though.......because I enjoyed the peace and happiness around here after the bears game.
