The biannual "Proposal Day!® Holiday offers those eligible singles seeking marriage a unique way to approach the one they love & hope to marry!
Proposal Day!® is on the days of the Equinox:
The 2015 Vernal Equinox Proposal Day!® Holiday was on Friday, March 20th.
The 2015 Autumnal Equinox Proposal Day!® Holiday will be on Wednesday, September 23rd.
On "Valentine's Day", it's appropriate to send a greeting card and a suitable gift to those you find lovable (inspiring or deserving love or affection), thereby expressing your fondness. And, if you're single and seeking marriage, then among those you find lovable it's possible there will be one special someone you find eminently marriageable (suitable or attractive for marriage).
On "Proposal Day!"®, it's appropriate to express your heart's desire to the eligible single you find most marriageable by sending a greeting card along with a cherished gift symbolizing what you two have in common, thereby letting them know of your interest in them as a potential spouse. Sending the Proposal Day!® card does not represent a proposal of marriage, but it does declare your eligibility for marriage directly to the one you love. The Proposal Day!® card does let the one you're interested in marrying know that you find them desirable as a potential spouse, and that you want to share your future days together as a married couple. Their response to your card and gift will provide you with clues to their deepest feelings toward the idea of joining you in marriage....and be kind, because for some it might be the first indication they're consciously aware of that you're thinking of them in that special way!
In this way, the Proposal Day!® Holiday presents an opportunity to raise the subject of marriage proposals in a light-hearted and non-threating manner, and it's a gentle way to get a glimpse of how the one you love might feel about a marriage proposal that'll lead to the two of you becoming engaged to be married!
For those singles who are quite certain of who it is they wish to marry and who want to take a more active and direct role that cannot possibly be misunderstood, an excellent way for you to approach the one you love and want to marry is to simply go ahead and follow the example already set by over two dozen candidates for the American Presidential election of 2016: Declare your candidacy for the position you want! By declaring your candidacy for marriage in your own handwriting to the one you love, your Proposal Day!® greeting card has become a Proposal Day!® Declaration of Candidacy greeting card.
Sending a Proposal Day!® Candidacy Card isn't making a proposal of marriage, but it does declare your candidacy for marriage directly to the one you love. It's an excellent way to let the one you love and hope to marry know that you're marriage-minded and that you consider them as among the most eligible singles in the whole wide world...they'll get the message, and understand that you're declaring yourself as a current candidate for their hand in marriage and that you're entirely willing for them to approach you with a proposal of marriage, even if you were to do no further campaigning for them to do so. By declaring your candidacy for the position of fiancé or fiancée in your own handwriting in the Proposal Day!® card you send to the one you love along with your cherished gift, you've made your position clear, and you're not only making clear your desire to be viewed by them as a candidate for their consideration as a spouse, but also that you are totally confident the two of you have what it takes together to build a successful marriage and that you'd both be happy being married to each other. The Proposal Day!® "Candidacy Card" is about as close as you can get to a marriage proposal without actually proposing! If you'd like to actively campaign, then go ahead and plan on campaigning for a few weeks.
If you choose to send a Proposal Day!® "Candidacy Card", it's virtually certain that you'll soon learn if the one you wish to marry views you as an acceptable candidate or not by his or her reaction to your card announcing your declaration of candidacy and to your ongoing campaign efforts. A high level of enthusiasm shown by the one you love for the idea of becoming your spouse will generate momentum that is quite likely to lead to a marriage proposal and to you and your true love becoming formally engaged to be married. An absence of enthusiasm shown by the one you love or resistance expressed to the idea of the two of you deepening your relationship means you are trying to become closer and more intimate with someone who is either not meant for you or is not ready for marriage. It'd almost certainly be a mistake for you to continue trying to marry someone who's not meant for you, and waiting for someone to become ready for marriage can go on for decades, so...your campaigning should probably wind-down as you accept the idea that future matrimonial efforts will be better made to a person who will be more eager and on-board with the idea of getting engaged, setting a date for the wedding, and becoming your spouse.
In my advice book for eligible singles, "Single and Seeking Marriage", I explain why I believe each single has eleven thousand true loves worldwide. Any of these eleven thousand would be an excellent spouse, and your depth of success in marriage will depend upon your choosing one of your eleven thousand true loves as the person you decide to marry.
Just as a marriage proposal can be made on any day of the year, the Proposal Day!® card, with or without a Declaration of Candidacy written inside the greeting card, can be sent to your true love on any day throughout the year to express your interest or to declare your candidacy for their hand in marriage. The Proposal Day!® card should never be sent to anyone you wouldn't be very happy to see thrilled at the idea of becoming your future spouse. Remember....Only give this card to the person who it's your heart's desire to marry. Don't send the Proposal Day!® card unless you are quite certain that you would accept their proposal of marriage if they were to propose to you as a result of receiving your card.
Here's what can happen when an eligible single has fallen in love and begins to think about marriage.... He or she knows who it is they want to marry "someday", and hopes that the one they love feels the same way about them. What they wonder is if they are looked at as a real friend and potential spouse, or merely as someone who's fun to date, but not considered suitable for marriage? They hope that it's possible the one they love is already seriously considering them as a potential spouse. And, if so, then how best to find it out?
This stall speed "mutual reticence" can easily continue when neither in the relationship makes it clear to the other that they want to be considered as a candidate for marriage. If both in the relationship show reluctance to make their true feelings known, then this kind of "standoff" can go on and on for months or years.... and, to quote Albert Einstein, nothing will happen until something moves!
Sending a Proposal Day!® card to your true love is a decisive act that is designed to generate real motion in your relationship; either excitement and interest in the possibility of marriage to you, or a distinct lack of enthusiasm for the idea of marrying you that makes you understand that the two of you might always remain friends, but it's most unlikely that you'll ever marry each other. The Proposal Day!® card helps to make the upcoming fork in the road ahead in the relationship clear. Will the couple's relationship be based in future years on marriage or remain one of mutual friendship and mutual respect?
The biannual Proposal Day!® Holiday in March and September worldwide is particularly effective in assisting those in long term multi-year relationships who've been drifting along over the years without moving towards their goal of a specific commitment such as 'engaged to be married'. By opening the door on a delicate subject and generating an opportunity for an honest discussion about their future together, the Holiday provides opportunities to discuss the path ahead. Some couples will sense that they'll be making their wedding plans soon, while others will come to an understanding that their existing relationship is comfortable, but it's also unlikely to ever lead to anything serious. By acting as a catalyst, the Proposal Day!® Holiday and the Proposal Day!® greeting card helps the single who is seeking marriage in the relationship avoid unknowingly spending years more searching for a ring within a relationship that does not present that opportunity now and is unlikely to present it in future years.
Singles seeking Engagement and Marriage can use what they've learned from discussing the Holiday with their true love to actually pop the big question at any time during the year. The Proposal Day® Holiday and the Proposal Day® cards are able to help many singles overcome their hesitation and generate focused positive momentum in moving forward with their lives by indicating or declaring their candidacy for marriage and their status as a potential spouse to their true love, and to finally make a firm decision to either: Propose Marriage or to Accept a Marriage Proposal.
Singles who are looking for a special day for their marriage proposal are encouraged to propose to their true love on either the first day of Spring or the first day of Autumn --- the day of the Vernal Equinox or the Autumnal Equinox, as these are the two days in the year where day and night are of equal length worldwide, symbolizing the equaility of the two who comprise the successful marriage. Although few of those who discuss this topic will choose to propose on the Proposal Day!® Holiday itself...still, what's a nice marriage proposal if the exact timing, manner, and method doesn't remain a pleasant mystery? Any day that is special to you, or a day that is special to the one you love, or a day that is meaningful to you both as a couple, will be a truly fine day for your marriage proposal.
Only those age eighteen or older can be included on the list of "Most Eligible Singles". Those you nominate to be among the "Most Eligible" should not be married or known to be formally engaged to be married. And, although I appreciate the sincere interest in the Holiday among young teenagers, this Holiday is meant for those who are legally old enough to marry in the jurisdiction in which they live. The Proposal Day!® Holiday must not be used to propose marriage or to indicate your eligibility or to declare your candidacy for marriage to a person you are legally unable to marry due to state and/or federal laws or the laws of the country of which you are a citizen or subject. When in doubt over any possible legal issue involving your marriage proposal or your indication of eligibility for marriage or your declaration of candidacy for marriage to a true love, it's an excellent idea to seek advice from a qualified legal professional well before declaring your eligibility, candidacy, or your actually making a proposal of marriage.
My announcement of the winners of the title of "Most Eligible Single in the World" on the Equinoxes represents my best opinion on this subject, based upon personal research on the topic and your input. As in any subjective matter, your opinion will very likely differ from my own. In fact, radio DJ listener surveys on the Proposal Day!® Holiday prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that each radio station audience has their own ideas of who should be named as the most eligible bachelor and bachelorette on each Equinox!
The twice-yearly Proposal Day!® Holiday generates discussion among eligible singles worldwide on the broad topic of marriage proposals. And, every now and then, a radio DJ or the host or hostess of a television show celebrating the Proposal Day!® Holiday will actually have the opportunity to have an on-the-air Marriage Proposal made during their show!
Here's one example of how to use the Proposal Day!® Holiday concept to move forward in your journey from "single" to "engaged to be married to your true love":
Those who enjoy arts & crafts can easily create their own greeting card for the upcoming Proposal Day!® 2015 Vernal Equinox Holiday for their own personal use, but not for commercial use, sale, or resale. Your card will work well in letting your true love know your marriage-minded intentions! Those who craft a Proposal Day!® card for their own personal use are requested to make a donation to your local animal shelter as symbolic and representative of the better life you are attempting to create for yourself and your true love. Imagine what a blessing your dollars will be for the dogs, cats, and other helpless creatures in the shelter who are seeking new forever homes, as well as for those who go to the shelter searching for the right pet to adopt into their family. In this way, the family formation that results from a successful marriage proposal is foreshadowed by your contributing to the health and welfare and a better life ahead for these pets who depend upon the kindness of men and women of good will such as yourself, as they are awaiting homes where they will become loved members of families themselves!
On the cover of your card, write something similar to "Wishing you a pleasantly memorable upcoming Proposal Day!® Holiday!" Then, further down the card: "Here's my list of the most eligible singles in the world:" On the inside of your card at the top, list your true love's name at #1 with your name immediately underneath your true love's name (both in the #1 position). Then, list the names of those you consider to be the most eligible male and female celebrity in the #2 position, followed by your choices for the two back-ups at #3. You'll find eligible single candidates among the world's celebrities: Royalty, elite actors, actresses, musicians, singers, athletes, and other newsworthy and noteworthy individuals. If you have trouble making such a list, then feel free to use those four recently announced at this site as your most eligible celebrity singles. Few men or women will feel threatened or slighted by being included in such a listing of prominent world-famous singles. Finally, if you choose to make your card a Proposal Day!® Candidacy Card, at the bottom of the list write something similar to "I declare my candidacy to you for your hand in marriage as an eligible single who loves you and is worthy of your consideration."
Your "four most eligible celebrity singles" included on the same card with your two names listed gets the conversational ball rolling forward....and your sending the Proposal Day!® card shows the incredible depth of your commitment to your true love.
The Proposal Day!® greeting card is meant to lead to an understanding between you and your true love of your future together. You've indicated by sending your card that you consider your true love to be the most eligible single for you and is who you most hope to marry. Further, you offer yourself as a candidate for marriage to the one you love by making your declaration of candidacy. And because of your having taken this decisive move forward in your relationship with the one you love by declaring your eligibility to marry, or by declaring your eligibility to marry and your candidacy for their consideration as their spouse, you'll have an excellent opportunity to learn where you stand in their future plans.
You've made it crystal clear that you want to have a future with your true love as a married couple. Because of your putting yourself on the line, you'll soon learn if the one you love is your true love who shares your deepest desires. The Proposal Day!® Holiday and the Proposal Day!® greeting card have assisted in your arrival as a couple at the gateway to the fork in the road of your relationship. If your true love shares your desire to create a home together as your spouse, then your relationship will easily move forward to your engagement and your marriage.
These are the Four Most Eligible Singles in the World on the Friday, March 20th Vernal Equinox Holiday
The Most Eligible Singles for Spring & Summer of 2015:
Prince Harry from the United Kingdom
Taylor Swift from the United States of America
Who are the most eligible celebrity singles in the world on the day of the Vernal Equinox in March 2015?
The creator of the Proposal Day!® Holiday and the Proposal Day!® greeting card, John Michael O'Loughlin announces his opinion every Equinox, based upon research and your input, seeking the answer to the question: "Who is the most eligible bachelor and the most eligible bachelorette in the world"?
For the Vernal Equinox of 2015, it is John Michael's opinion that those who should carry the title of "Most Eligible Singles in the World" are:
Most Eligible Bachelor on the Vernal Equinox of 2015: Prince Harry is named as the most eligible man in the world for March of 2015. There has been virtually unanimous agreement that Prince Harry has been at or near the top of everyone's list of most eligible men since his brother Prince William, the future King of Great Britain, wed Kate Middleton.
Serving as back-up for the title of "Most Eligible Man" in case His Majesty should become engaged before the Autumnal Equinox of 2015 is Hollywood legend Leonardo DiCaprio, one of the most successful film professionals of the modern era.
John Michael's opinion is that the Most Eligible Woman in the World on the Vernal Equinox of 2015 is American recording artist Taylor Swift, who has remained a figure of beauty and grace and carries an impeccable image of dignity that makes her worthy of this title.
Backing up Miss Swift for the Spring & Summer title of "Most Eligible Woman" is British actress and one of the young stars of The Harry Potter series Emma Watson, who has since been appointed as a United Nations Women Goodwill Ambassador. The pin she wears represents the UN Campaign HeForShe.
It's easy to make your choices known for the upcoming September Autumnal Equinox Holiday of 2015. Winners of the Title of "Most Eligible Man in the World" and "Most Eligible Woman in the World" and their back-ups will be posted on Monday, September 21st, (two days before the Autumnal Equinox Holiday) to this website. To vote for your favorites, please send a post card or letter with your Title Winners and Back-up choices for the most eligible bachelor and bachelorette to John Michael at the Colleyville, Texas address below.
There will be over one million marriage proposals and declarations of candidacy made in America during 2015 & more than ten million proposals of marriage and candidacy declarations made worldwide. Will yours be among them, or will you wait until 2016, 2017, ...or maybe even the 2020's?
In my advice book, "Single and Seeking Marriage", I explain why I believe that each eligible single has eleven thousand true loves worldwide. Having trouble finding an eligible single you can identify as a true love? Try this...first, broaden the geographical range you're searching just slightly past your current comfort range. Next, take a look at the "filters" you're using in narrowing the field of all eligible singles within your geographical range down to those you could accept as your potential true loves. Adjust your filters just a tiny bit and you'll be surprised at the positive results!
While a Declaration of Eligibility for Marriage and/or a Declaration of Candidacy for Marriage is usually best made in writing, a Proposal of Marriage almost always requires that the person proposing be there in person to propose to his or her chosen true love, who ideally should also be present in person. The exceptions to this general rule usually involve a case where a person is unavoidably required to be elsewhere such as during wartime, working on scientific research in the Arctic/Antarctic or serving aboard the International Space Station. In such cases, an onscreen presence via computer link will work just fine.
For those who have heard dozens of marriage proposal stories, it quickly becomes apparent that there's just the right and proper marriage proposal for each couple. Find yours by considering your interests and temperament...exciting, placid, edgy, sentimental, traditional, clever, or perhaps incredibly creative and a mixture of these and other elements? .
Seek out a time, a place, and (if you prefer) an audience that your beloved will find welcome. Unless you're quite certain that your true love will welcome a "surprise marriage proposal" with a stadium of strangers for an audience at a sporting event or concert, then this would not be the way to proceed. For those who can't decide what might be the best way to propose, my advice is to make your marriage proposal a pleasant experience in a relaxed setting you'll both enjoy with a specific moment where it is crystal clear that you are making a proposal of marriage. The marriage proposal and the couple involved should have center stage. The setting should provide what you want as the proper stage for your event without being so distractive that it steals center stage from the proposal itself. A setting or event that is so over the top that it takes center stage away from the marriage proposal and the couple involved can be used if you don't mind your marriage proposal becoming a supporting event to the spectacle of the setting....it's a very fine line, and each couple will have to draw this line for themselves. For most couples, you can't go wrong in choosing a subdued, intimate and cozy setting lacking a high intensity atmosphere, thus allowing the day of your marriage proposal to forever remain a time in your lives that you both can look back upon fondly....
Single & Seeking Marriage? A Proposal Day!® Greeting Card is an effective way to announce your marriage-minded intentions to the one you love!
Don't find yourself in the position of wishing that you'd made your intentions clear to the one you love back earlier when you'd had the chance. The risk of failure after trying your best is far easier to live with than never having tried at all....
