    Loverboy proposed to me last night 11th Jun 17 at 2:48 PM
    Basically loverboy proposed to me via text message and I only saw it this morning.
    I don't know how to feel as I thought doing it the traditional way (face to face, eyes to eyes, breath to breath)was the only way for it to be done.
    Is proposal via text the new thing now?
    How was yours done?
    It's better to regret something I did do than to regret something that I didn’t.

    The really important question is - has he asked your father's permission via text message?

    I would ask him about it. Might be real, might have been drunk, might have been a friend playing a joke but he may assume by not answering you don't want marriage. You may be able to get him to do a proper proposal later. Not heard of proposals by text.

    So this is the guy who you are considering making a huge commitment to and getting married yet you can't even ask him about a text he sent you?

    This is clearly bothering you and if you can't even talk to him about it then marriage is definetly not a good idea!.
