These days there is this stencil that you put on your eyebrow that helps you have a better eyebrow

Nairobi - These days there is this stencil that you put on your eyebrow that helps you have a better eyebrow. I can just imagine myself as a man watching my wife or girlfriend getting ready to leave the house. There is even one that has two wings that you hold on your nose. I would die of laughter when she puts that thing on her face to draw on something she shaved off previously. I would also be single because women take such things seriously.

Anyway, proposal etiquette! You would think you don’t need this but some people do actually need it.

Don’t propose on someone else’s wedding day/ birthday or some other special stuff

You see the way you are told not to wear white on another person’s wedding unless it is a request; that sort of thing- some people just don’t know how to be considerate. It is someone’s wedding and you choose to propose on their day; like they laid a platform for you. Let people have their moment and propose on your own platform not on something that is meant to focus entirely on them.

Don’t propose publicly unless you are sure of the other person

Do you know some people even rush to propose because they can see the relationship has come to an end and they are doing everything they can to keep it? That is why some people are normally publicly humiliated when the other person walks away or slaps them. It is not because they are hateful mean people but because they know how the relationship is behind closed doors.  Unless you are sure the other person actually likes you and wants to spend the rest of their life with you, don’t do it.

Don’t make it public unless you are doing it well

There is nothing like an embarrassing proposal. Some can take a joke and others can’t. You know your spouse and what they would like-hopefully! Also some people don’t like being the center of such kind of attention. It can ruin the mood.

Relax; it is only a proposal

Some of these high profile proposals make me take a seat as I await the wedding and eventually the marriage. Doing all that just so a bunch of strangers and people you do not even know will give you a clap. You amuse me. How is the state of the relationship by the way? Doing well? I don’t know I am just going to watch and see how far this thing goes and I will be the first one to call you out and drag you.

You know, after the marriage or relationship falls apart barely two months after the whole shin-dig we are all going to come and talk about how we do not know what so and so was going through so we cannot make negative comments. But did you go in there blind? You knew. So I reserve the right to be a total bad person when you are having a public break up because you chose to have a public relationship. That is our relationship.
