Proposing to Your Special Someone in the Age of Social Media

Posted by on November 16, 2020 in Stuff with 0 Comments

With the popularity of social media, almost everything gets posted online. Even some of the most intimate and private details end up on this platform. It could be challenging to keep things secret when no discussion is safe from ending up online. When you want to propose to a person you love, it’s even more challenging. You want to keep it a secret until the time when you have to pop the question. Navigating this social media age can be tricky, but you can do it.

Never give any signs in your posts

You should be cautious with what you post online. Try not to give any sign that might make your loved one conclude that you’re going to propose any time soon. Even if you feel tempted to write something, you have to hold off. Keep posting, as usual, to avoid giving any suspicious sign.

Never tell anyone about your plans

Unless you can find a confidant, who will keep your plans a secret, you have to try keeping things to yourself. If you already find it challenging, you can only imagine how the other person feels. You might blow your plans because you decided to tell someone. Keep everything a secret and have a low-key proposal, so there’s no need to ask for help from anyone.

Be careful with your online purchases

If your partner knows the password to your phone, it could be risky. You might have proof that you bought a ring online. Try to use a different device or delete any information related to this purchase. You should also ensure your partner won’t see the package upon its delivery. It would be terrible if you end up revealing the proposal because you weren’t careful in handling your mobile device. Apart from the ring, it would help if you also considered buying a name necklace. It could be a special gift too. Just like the ring, it’s an expression of love and admiration.

Make it a private moment

If you succeeded in getting a positive response, try to soak it in for a while. You don’t have to tell the whole world about it. It’s not because you’re not proud or happy, but because you want that special moment to be between the two of you. There’s no need to inform your closest friends and family members either. There’s plenty of time to let them know about your looming marriage. For now, you have to savor the moment and spend it together. You can post pictures on social media later.

After one post, you have to avoid posting over and over again about your wedding plans. People already get it. They also extended their congratulatory messages. You can use your social media as a tool to invite people, but not to brag about every detail. There are advantages to the rise of social media, but it has also taken away special moments from people. You can’t let the same thing happen to you.
