Proposal Day!® is on the days of the Equinox:
Proposal Day!® honors & celebrates marriage proposals while providing a graceful way for singles seeking marriage to reveal their marriage-minded intentions to a true love on the day of their choice during the year.
The Vernal Equinox Proposal Day!® Holiday will be celebrated the weekend of March 19th & 20th, 2016.
We all know that the upcoming Valentine's Day on Sunday, February 14th will provide an excellent opportunity for singles to send a greeting card to an eligible single they find lovable, and that Valentine's Day is an excellent day to let those we love know how we feel. And, for those of us single and seeking marriage, then among those eligible singles we find lovable it's inevitable that eventually there'll be a special someone we'll believe is eminently suitable or attractive for marriage. Everywhere around the world, once you find someone you consider marriageable, it's only natural that you'll start to imagine what it might be like to become engaged and then married to this wonderful person.
Does sending flowers and a card or taking some special person out to a romantic dinner on the Valentine's Day Holiday let the person we love and hope to marry know that we consider them among those we consider marriageable? No, not really, because while Valentine's Day cards, flowers, candy, jewelry, perfume/cologne and dinner dates all do a good job of sending the message that, "I Love You!", the Valentine's Day Holiday by itself simply assures the person we love that we do, indeed, love them.
Is it fair or proper to send flowers and a card and take someone out to dinner that you love, but do not consider marriageable for Valentine's Day? Of course it is, because Valentine's Day is recognized as a day to let all those you love know that you love them.....and, everyone loves many people that they cannot, will not, or do not consider marriageable. In recognition of this fact, almost all of the greeting card companies acknowledge this when they design and offer greeting cards where you can wish anyone you possibly know a "Happy Valentine's Day!" by sending or mailing them one of their cards...check out the greeting card racks at the stores and you'll see that there's a card designed to send to everyone you might possibly feel any affection for, including all relatives and friends, as well as those you might feel friendly toward or actually love, and even friendly cards suitable for those you might one day potentially love.
Valentine's Day is a day to wish family members and all your friends you love and hold dear a "Happy Valentine's Day", because in so many different ways you find all of them loveable. It's an innocent holiday where you can feel free to let those you love in your life know that you love them....the ancient Greeks really understood the different ways in which one person could express love, and they identified six distinct types of love as follows:
Eros - Sexual Love
Philia - Deep Comradeship or Friendship
Ludus - Light playful Love
Agape - Love for mankind; a universal love
Pragma - Long lasting love that's longstanding, such as in a decades long marriage.
Philautia - can be expressed in a negative manner such as an obsession with self or in a positive manner as in self-respect.
Valentine's Day is an excellent holiday for singles to let those they love know that they're loved; and such love can represent one or more of the six forms listed above . However, for those singles who want to let the eligible single they love and consider marriageable know how they feel, the Valentine's Day Holiday serves as the "booster stage" for the relationship, but is not powerful enough by itself to "achieve orbit" in fulfilling the goal of moving from single and seeking marriage to engaged to be married to a true love.
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" might continue when neither in the relationship makes it clear to the other that they want to be considered as a potential spouse and 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 years.... and, to quote Albert Einstein, nothing will happen until something moves! If you want your relationship to move forward, often you must be the one willing to generate motion and take action to do so.
If you're single and seeking marriage, then there's something very specific you can do for this upcoming Proposal Day!® Holiday weekend...on Friday, March 18th, 2016, you can send a nice spring bouquet to the eligible single who's your favorite true love you hope to marry. You'll have no trouble finding several suitable bouquet offerings to choose from, because florists always have springtime bouquets available around the time of the Vernal Equinox just to brighten up offices and homes for the change from winter to springtime. For Valentine's Day this year, you can be sure that there'll be plenty of roses and other floral arrangements sent to offices around the world on Friday, February 12th, 2016, because the last business day before a Holiday is widely recognized as the appropriate day to send holiday gifts for holidays that fall on Saturday or Sunday. So, for 2016, Valentine's Day will actually be celebrated over three days. And, for the same reason, the 2016 Proposal Day!® Holiday on the Vernal Equinox will also be celebrated over three days. This year, I'd highly recommend sending a bouquet of roses, some other floral arrangement, and/or a gift on February 12th and a springtime floral arrangement and a small gift having personal significance on March 18th to the office or home of the true love you hope to marry!
When you know who it is you want to marry, then 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 low-key and gentle way to get the one you love to pause and start to think about what it might be like to have you as their spouse.
If you're single and seeking marriage and you know who you want to marry, then why not invite this person you want as your lifetime mate out somewhere special over the Proposal Day!® Holiday weekend? Use your imagination and creativity and what you know about your true love to take them out somewhere special they'll love...perhaps a cozy restaurant followed by a walk in the park or some other pleasant location that offers privacy and special memories for the two of you. While you're both together, you'll have a chance to speak candidly...speak about new beginnings, about spring bringing the awakening of the plants and the hibernating animals, and offering a chance for a new beginning for them and for the two of you.....then, why not go ahead and share the feelings in your heart of what you hope for out of your life? Honestly, if not now, then when? If you can't let them know what you really feel, then please ask yourself why can't you be honest with the one you love....
This doesn't mean a proposal of marriage right then and there, but it does mean you should say what's on your mind and in your heart, particularly about your hopes and dreams for your future. If you do this, then you'll be giving your true love the opportunity to join you in your dream, and to bring elements of their dream into your world and creating a dream you both can share together. If you do this, then they'll understand that you believe them to be one of your "true loves" in life and that you consider them marriageable and if you'll openly share this with them, then they'll begin to mentally process this information they've received from you. Once this process has started, then you have every chance in the world to be seriously considered as a potential spouse by the one you love.
I strongly advise against suggesting any sort of deadline or ultimatum, or setting a date by which a decision must be made. Fact is....either this person is a "true love" who is one of those meant for you, or not. Either they're going to be interested in being your spouse and spending the rest of their life with you or they're not. Let them decide on their own, and if they hesitate too long to make a decision, then they risk losing out to a rival. It is the way of life and of love....
Have you thought.....how long is too long for me to wait, or have you considered.....how long is too long for me to expect my true love to wait for me to make a move in getting us closer as a couple to becoming engaged? Most feel that three months is fine when it comes to waiting, but many would agree that waiting thirty months (or more!) is often considered burdensome without there being a special reason such as schooling or military duty. In the final analysis, it's up to you to decide for yourself how long is too long, and to do something about it.
Remember: The message on Valentine's Day is "You're Loveable!", and on Proposal Day!® it's: "You're Marriageable!". By clearly sending this message of love on Valentine's Day to your true love, and then clearly sending the message of your quest for engagement and marriage to your true love when you're sharing your dream on Proposal Day!®, you're letting the person you love and hope to marry know how you feel....that you want Love and Marriage! By clearly communicating this message, you're putting the ball in their court, & awaiting their response. Although few of those who discuss this topic will 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?
For those eligible singles who aren't yet ready to discuss marriage with their favorite eligible single, it's good to know that the upcoming "Proposal Day!"® Holiday is never more than six months away, and just as a marriage proposal can be made on any day of the year, the Proposal Day!® card can be sent to your true love on any day leading up to the next "Proposal Day!"®, even if it's not coming up for months. If your true love is one of those ten thousand meant for you and your deep desire to marry your true love is genuine and they feel the same way that you do, your letting them know you find them marriageable will be incredibly welcome news to them. It doesn't matter in the slightest what day of the year that they learn this because the best day for them to know this is the day that you choose to share this secret you've been carrying alone......send your card!
Send your card...It's an excellent way to let the one you love and hope to marry know that you consider them one of your "true loves", and therefore among the most eligible ten thousand singles meant for you in the whole wide world...you're declaring yourself as interested in taking their hand in marriage and that you're entirely willing for them to approach you with a proposal of marriage. By sending the Proposal Day!® card you're expressing your interest, desire, and the firm belief that you're a worthy potential spouse to the one you love, and doing this is about as close as you can get to a marriage proposal without actually proposing!
When you know who it is you want to marry, then the Proposal Day!® Holiday presents an opportunity to raise the subject of marriage proposals in a light-hearted and non-threating manner at any time during the six months leading up to the Holiday. 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 not likely 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 your relationship with the "true love" you hope to marry be based in future years on your goal of marriage or remain one of mutual friendship and mutual respect?
Once you send a Proposal Day!® card, it's virtually certain that you'll soon learn if the one you wish to marry views you as one of their "true loves" or not by his or her reaction to your card. 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 indication of interest and wanting to talk it all over with you is a good sign, too. It means you're being taken seriously and the door is now opened for discussion on the subject. An absence of enthusiasm shown by the one you love. reluctance to discuss the subject, and/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 one of your ten thousand "true loves" and is therefore not meant for you, or might truly be among those ten thousand who are meant for you, but not yet ready to consider the idea of 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 a really, really long time, even decades, so... After a few months, which are months that can easily turn into a year or two of waiting with no results seen, it's time to examine the idea that future matrimonial efforts might be better made to a person who is among your "true loves" and is enthusiastic about the idea of the two of you becoming a couple and on-board with the idea of getting engaged, setting a date for the wedding, and becoming your spouse.
On any day throughout the year, you can send your true love a "Proposal Day!"® card revealing your own personal choices for the title of "Most Eligible Bachelor" and "Most Eligible Bachelorette" for the next upcoming Proposal Day!® Holiday, thereby expressing your deep interest in them as a potential partner in marriage, and indicating your candidacy as their potential spouse as explained below....
The Proposal Day!® card should not be sent to anyone you wouldn't be completely overjoyed 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 really sure that you would accept their proposal of marriage if they were to propose to you as a result of receiving your card!
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 ever present it in future years.
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.
Singles who are looking for a special day for their marriage proposal are welcome 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.
And remember ...often the exact timing, manner, and method of the marriage proposal itself remains a pleasant mystery right up to the appointed hour!
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 desire 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 your desire for marriage to a true love, it's an excellent idea to seek advice from a qualified legal professional well before declaring your eligibility for marriage, candidacy as a potential marriage partner to the one you love, or your actually making a proposal of marriage.
How can a single seeking marriage use the upcoming Proposal Day!® Holiday Weekend to move forward in your journey from "single" to "engaged to be married to a true love"?
Here's how: On any day throughout the year, you can send your true love a "Proposal Day!"® card revealing your own personal choices for the title of "Most Eligible Bachelor" and "Most Eligible Bachelorette" for the upcoming Proposal Day!® Holiday, thereby expressing your deep interest in them as a potential partner in marriage, and indicating your candidacy as their potential spouse....
For those who prefer to create their own greeting card instead of purchasing one already made, I'm all in favor of those who enjoy arts & crafts creating their own "Proposal Day!"® greeting card revealing their personal choices for the title of "Most Eligible Bachelor" and "Most Eligible Bachelorette" for the upcoming 2016 Vernal Equinox Holiday Weekend, if willing to make a modest contribution in exchange. Those crafting a Proposal Day!® card for their own personal use, but not for commercial use, sale, or resale, may donate two dollars directly to your local animal shelter as symbolic and representative of the better life you hope to create for yourself and your true love; it's a dollar for you and a dollar for your "true love", too! In consideration of your two dollar donation made on behalf of yourself and your true love, please feel free to craft a Proposal Day!® card for your own personal use. Imagine what a blessing your dollars combined with those of others who craft such a Proposal Day!® card for their own personal use 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! Your hand crafted card and monetary donation will work wonders in letting a true love know of your marriage-minded interest and intentions, and also of your compassion in caring for these little pets awaiting their new homes and the families they'll come to love and who will love them in turn.
There are many different approaches you can take on what you'll write in your card. Here's one: On the cover of your card will be a phrase something similar to "Sending you Proposal Day!® Greetings". Then, on the inside of your card, write "Here's my list of the most eligible singles in the world:" Just under that, list those celebrities you consider to be the most eligible man and woman in the world today. And, under that list the names of the man and woman celebrity you believe would be the best to serve if either of your first choices becomes engaged while holding the title of "Most Eligible". Finally, list your true love's name underneath your choices for "Most Eligible Bachelor" and "Most Eligible Bachelorette", and your choices for back-ups. You'll find eligible single candidates among the world's most famous and talented 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. And, who knows? Perhaps after reading that they've been declared world's most eligible recently, Jack Schlossberg and Emma Watson or Prince Harry and Taylor Swift will go on a date to see if they might enjoy each others company. Better yet, how about the four of them going on a double date....
There's no need to include your name with the five names you have on the card. All you will need to do is to indicate your interest simply stated on your card, such as, " I find myself wondering what it'd be like to be married to you....", and signing this simple sentence with your signature. This is plenty open-ended enough to generate the opportunity for discussion leading to motion and momentum! If it seems a little too forward and daring, remember that nothing happens until something moves, and your goal is to create a favorable climate for significant positive motion by making this move yourself in sending this card to your true love that reveals you're looking at them favorably as a potential spouse. Your giving this card to your true love has every chance of being the significant event that sets the wheels in motion leading to your engagement and marriage!
Your "four most eligible celebrity singles" included on the same card with your true love's name and your simply stated message gets the conversational ball rolling forward....and your sending the Proposal Day!® card shows the incredible depth of your commitment to and love for 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 among those few you most hope to marry, and that by sending your card you are offering yourself as a potential spouse to the one you love for their consideration. Because of your having taken this decisive move forward in your relationship with your true love by declaring your eligibility to marry, and your interest in them as a potential marriage partner, 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 the true love who shares your deepest desires to live together as a married couple. The Proposal Day!® Holiday and the Proposal Day!® greeting card have assisted you both 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.
I believe that each eligible single has ten thousand "true loves" worldwide out of the more than one billion eligible singles around the globe. Any of these ten thousand eligible singles (who, by definition, are the most compatible and suitable marriage partners in the world for you) would be an excellent spouse for you, and your depth of happiness in marriage will be greatly influenced by your finding and choosing one of your ten thousand "true loves" as the person you eventually decide to marry and have as your one and only "true love".
As of 2015, there are over seven and one-quarter billion humans on planet earth. When examining the latest global population statistics available, we conclude that there are slightly more than one billion eligible singles on planet earth and that we can safely say there are currently at least one billion eligible singles worldwide. So....if an eligible single were to look at this huge number of one billion eligible singles worldwide, and choose 10% of them for further consideration based upon very basic personal preference and compatibility filters, they'd have one hundred million singles meeting their most basic qualifications remaining under consideration. Then, if it were possible to be able to choose the top one percent of this remaining group, we'd have one million singles remaining as potential spouses. Finally, by repeating the process one last time.....choosing the most compatible one percent of singles from among this group of one million, there would be ten thousand singles remaining who would be, by definition, the most compatible singles on earth for you and the best you could possibly choose as your spouse. Look at this one more time - We've first chosen the top ten percent of eligible singles worldwide for your consideration as compatible, then chosen the top one percent of these one hundred million, leaving us with one million remaining under consideration as highly compatible. Of these highly compatible million, we again chose the top one percent (representing ten thousand singles who are most compatible with you), leaving us the group from which you can choose a suitable potential spouse with confidence.
No matter how energetic you are, it won't be possible to communicate directly with or meet all of your ten thousand "true loves". My opinion is that very few will be able to get in touch with more than one hundred "true loves", representing one percent of your pool of "true loves". Therefore, I submit to you that the concept of a one and only "true love" is true, and it becomes true of the one you choose to marry from your pool of ten thousand "true loves"... the top one percent of the top one percent of the ten percentage of the eligible singles in the world; the "creme dela creme" of eligible singles who are most suitable for you and compatible with you. When you are able to identify a person who you believe would meet your needs and desires in your marriage to the extent that you consider this person among the top ten thousand in the world meant for you, then you are identifying one of your true loves.
Please understand the risk of inaction....one of the greatest enemies of the single seeking marriage is despair. Once a single seeking marriage gives in to the fear that they'll never find their one and only "true love" and that they therefore must be destined to live their life alone, their belief leads them to embrace a static state of emotional paralysis, leading to inactivity in their search for a spouse. The truth is this: First, there are ten thousand "true loves" in this world who would be an excellent spouse for you, and Second, if you are sincere in your desire to marry a person who will become your one and only "true love", you must take action combined with a positive mental attitude that will generate motion toward your goal. Remember...nothing will happen until something moves!
If you choose not to take action, then there is the chance that one of the 9,999 other true loves of the one you hope marry will take action, and this true love of yours who you'd hoped to marry will marry another because you never made your desire for love and marriage crystal clear.
