“All love that has not friendship for its base, is like a mansion built upon the sand.” ~ Ella Wheeler Wilcox8

Love they say is a beautiful thing, and it is mostly shared between two things , people or more.

Two souls from different background come together to merge themselves as one.

Love brought them together , silencing other thoughts.

Love is truly blind as you can't tell a person in love to stop loving.

When two souls finds themselves, love booms in and takes them on a fancy ride.

After some months or years set in proposals..

I have come across many planned proposals which most were from social media on how most ended in tears and you'd wonder were they not in love?

Or if they were not in love enough.

Has love truly blind him for not seeing she isn't ready,or completely into him?

Though some ladies fancy public proposals, infact they love it when their guy go extra miles to propose to them with people around.

While the others, dislike public proposals. Some even walked out on the guy bending on one knee asking the beautiful question.

Will you marry me?

Spend the rest of your world with me?

Be my other half?

Ride the world with me? Forever?

Be not only the mother of my babies but a best friend and lover who would forever be by my side?

And there the guy would be, and other viewers and listeners, waiting for the damsel to say the magical word.

A beautiful proposal at the beach with the rainbow and sun in harmony.

Yes I will.

Or with tears and emotions boiling inside her making her lost in speech but having her nodding her head in admission to his love.

That view on public proposals is always beautiful, claps and happy screams, with lots of awwwnnn would surely be heard.

But in the case of proposals seen on the media now, it always turns out bad.

A lot of walking away..

Some even slaps the guy and ask why he decided to embarrass her?

While other cuss him and say the word No without blinking.

And this makes me wonder?

Is there no love?

Or the partner just detest public proposals?

The best solution to this.

The best way I think this kind of heartbreaking proposals can be avoided is to know your partner.

Try to understand who they truly are, and how they view public proposals.

They are some ladies who likes public proposals but they prefer it done in some certain places like the beach.

Some might want you to come to their work having people holding up banner with balloons to propose.

Others love it to be in the midst of families and friends.

While some wants it at that restaurant or bar with lots of strangers.

She walked out on him.

Some don't appreciate it at all and would walk away.

We are all different, and love different things.

We can't all have the same thoughts.

Try striking up a conversation with your partner to know their take on public proposals if it a Yay! Or Nay! To them.

The rate at which guys are being walked out on during this beautiful day they've had planned out is just so painful.

Don't just look at the love, create a friendship atmosphere with your loved one.

Just like the quote above as indicated

“All love that has not friendship for its base, is like a mansion built upon the sand.”

A friendship atmosphere will help you think with not just your heart but your mind.

Avoid building your mansion on a sand as it will drift away when the storms of love comes and you'd be left with a broken soul and a battered bleeding heart ready never to fall in love again.

What about you?

What's your take on public proposals?

Why do you think the perfect day sometimes turns sour?

Yeah you're right, understanding really matters a lot. Some girls detest that kind of a thing, and they don't care of whatever embarrassment they might cause. And yes, love is dead sis, probably a 100 years ago. There is nothing called such anywhere..... Brilliant writing

For me, I'd prefer a private proposal, with just few of my friends and his. Not a crowd of people staring and shouting "Say yes!" With their phones taking a video. And you're right, I'd still say and keep saying this: "friendship before relationship."

At the end you still need someone you can freely express your feelings to,and to have that, friendship needs to be made.
