Proposal Day!® is on the days of the Equinox
The Vernal Equinox Proposal Day!® Holiday was on Thursday, March 20th, 2014.
The upcoming 2014 Autumnal Equinox Proposal Day!® Holiday will be on Monday, September 22nd.
The biannual "Proposal Day!® Holiday provides singles an opportunity to declare their candidacy as a potential spouse to their true love for their consideration. An excellent way to approach the one you love is to follow the example already set by over one dozen candidates for the American Presidential election of 2016: Declare your candidacy for the position you seek! By declaring your candidacy for the position of fiancé or fiancée to the one you love, you are not only making clear your desire to marry them, but also that you are confident that the two of you have what it takes as a team to build a successful marriage and that you'd both be happy together.
Plan on spending two or three months in appropriate campaigning, and 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 the announcement of your candidacy and your ongoing campaign efforts.
In this way, the 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!
Just as a marriage proposal can be made on any day of the year, the Proposal Day!® Declaration of Candidacy greeting card can be sent to your true love on any day throughout the year to declare your candidacy for their hand in marriage. The 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 card unless you are certain that you would accept their proposal of marriage if they were to propose to you as a result of receiving your card.
Sending a Proposal Day!® Declaration of Candidacy greeting card isn't making a proposal of marriage, but it is 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 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 available and willing....
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" is common when neither in the relationship makes it clear to the other that they want to be considered as a candidate for marriage. What often happens in such cases is that each single in the dating relationship hopes that that the other is thinking of them as a potential spouse, and each wishes that they knew how the other really and truly feels about the possibility of marriage between the two of them someday. If both in the relationship show reluctance to make their true feelings known, then this kind of "standoff" can continue for months or years.... and, to quote Albert Einstein, nothing will happen until something moves!
Sending a Proposal Day!® Declaration of Candidacy 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 unlikely you'll ever marry each other. The Holiday 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 possibly remain one of mutual friendship and affection?
The Holiday is particularly effective in assisting those in long term multi-year relationships who've been drifting along over the years without moving towards 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 Holiday 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 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 is able to help many singles overcome their hesitation and generate focused positive momentum moving forward by 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 such a Marriage Proposal made to them by their True Love!
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 wolrldwide, 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 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, the one you love and intend to propose marriage to, or a day that is meaningful to you both as a couple, will be a perfectly 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 many young teens, this Holiday is meant for those who are legally old enough to marry in the jurisdiction in which they live. The Holiday must not be used to propose 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 proposal, it's an excellent idea to seek advice from a qualified legal professional well before making any 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 might well differ from my own. In fact, radio DJ surveys on the 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!
While not a marriage proposal, a declaration of candidacy for the position of fiancé or fiancée can be made on any day of the year, including the days of the Equinoxes. And, every now and then, a DJ or the host or hostess of a television show will actually have the opportunity to have an on-the-air declaration of candidacy or marriage proposal made during their show!
Here's one example of how to use the Proposal Day!® Declaration of Candidacy Greeting Card 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 2014 Autumnal Equinox Proposal Day!® Holiday for their own personal use, but not for commercial use or resale. Your card will work well in letting your true love know your marriage-minded intentions! Those who craft such a Proposal Day!® Declaration of Candidacy card themselves for their own personal use are requested to make a modest 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 to 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 "Wishing you a pleasantly memorable upcoming Proposal Day!® Holiday!" Then, further down the card: "Here's my list of the five most eligible singles in the world:" On the inside of your card at the top, write "And you're #1" Then, underneath your heading, list your true love's name at #1, the names of those you consider to be the most eligible man and woman at #2 and 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 annuounced at this site as the 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, at the bottom of the list write "I declare my candidacy to you as an eligible single worthy of your consideration."
Your list of the five most eligible singles gets the conversational ball rolling forward and gives you an opportunity to ask your true love who would be on their list, and why they would include each particular person. Be prepared to share why you list your top four celebrities....and go further than physical appearance, wealth, and social status. It means you'll need to read a full biography on each of those famous singles on your list, and you'll learn of the sacrifices they made to achieve what they have in life. How well do you know your true love...their sacrifices... their dreams for the future? How well does your true love know yours?
The conversation generated by your card is meant to lead to a discussion between you and your true love of your future together. You've indicated by your card that you consider your true love to be among the most eligible singles on earth. Now, it's time for you to get an idea of where you stand. You're making it clear that you want to have a future with your true love.... Now...now it's time to learn if your true love shares your deepest desires.
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 marriage.
Most Eligible Singles on the Vernal Equinox Holiday
The Most Eligible Singles for the Spring & Summer of 2014:
Prince Harry from the United Kingdom
and Taylor Swift from the United States of America.
Who were the most eligible singles in the world in March of 2014?
The creator of the Proposal Day!® Holiday, John Michael O'Loughlin, announces his opinion every Equinox, based upon research and your input, seeking the answer to the question: "Who are the two most eligible bachelors and the two most eligible bachelorettes in the world today"?
For the Vernal Equinox of 2014, it was John Michael's opinion that those who should carry the title of "Most Eligible Singles in the World" were:
Most Eligible Bachelor on the Vernal Equinox of 2014: Prince Harry was the most eligible man in the world in March of 2014. There has been virtually unanimous agreement that Prince Harry has been very high on everyone's list of the most eligible men in the world ever 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 2014 is the award-winning actor and film producer Leonardo DiCaprio.
John Michael's opinion is that the Most Eligible Woman in the World on the Vernal Equinox of 2014 is one of the most talented young musicians in the world today...young American musical princess Taylor Swift is gracious, talented, and mature far beyond her years.
Backing up Miss Swift for the Spring & Summer 2014 title of "Most Eligible Woman" is British actress Emma Watson, all grown up now from her days portraying Hermione Granger on the set of the "Harry Potter" series of films.
It's easy to make your choices known for the upcoming September 22nd Autumnal Equinox Holiday of 2014. 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 several weeks before the 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.

Some Marriage Proposal Tips:
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....
