Poll: Proposal Woes – What Would You Do If #SheSaysNo

Yayy, I get to take over polls for today! Reni here by the way. Hehe. Exciting times lay ahead.

So last week, we asked what you guys think you’ll really do on your wedding night. 60% of the ladies chose: Sleep please. Is the sex running away? Is there no tomorrow or forever? But 23% also chose: Ehn legal skeen to skeen? We are gonna die on the line. For the guys, they were a bit more undecided. 37% chose: Sleep please. Is the sex running away? Is there no tomorrow or forever? And a close 30% picked: Activate Iyalaya anybody mode, down a bottle of alomo and then proceed to unleash all the styles I’ve learnt.

Well, it seems some couples may just have their very first disagreement on their wedding night – well, except some of you guys were not being completely honest.

***

On to today then, and keeping to the same-ish theme of weddings. Look, December is upon us, what else are we really going to talk about? So the big day is finally here, no not that day where the woman wears white, the one before it. You’ve gone ahead and procured a diamond for bae, a rock that literally emits multi-coloured rays of sunshine from its core. It cost an obscene, completely unjustifiable amount but you gotta make bae happy and make sure everyone knows you’re the man right? So you’re there, you have your speech prepared in your head and are ready to pop the question. Pop, like Pringles. And after all your effort and planning, she says NO.

Wait… WHAT?? What is a no?? Yeah, you read that right. For some reason, bae has decided that she is not ready yet or maybe she felt disrespected by the size of the rock. “Is that it?”  I have no clue, neither do you. All we know is that she said no. I read somewhere that Bill proposed to Hilary Clinton three times before she said yes, now isn’t that absurd? If I were Bill I might have packed up and moved the heck on after chopping that hot ela not once, but twice. When it’s love, it’s love ba? Okay but on a serious note, it takes a lot for a man to propose in the first place, no matter how long ago he decided that you were his missing rib, so if a woman says no, does that signify the end of the relationship entirely? Or is it more of an “All national trunks are busy, please try later” scenario where you could get an in if you just keep trying?

Would you immediately break up with a man you turned down? Or with the woman who turned you down? And please nobody should accuse me of being sexist, I’m writing with the basic assumption that man proposes, woman disposes (was that blasphemy?).  If you want your woman to propose or if you are a woman who wants to propose, there is plenty of room for you on this planet.

So on to the polls, on a serious note. What would you do if #SheSaysNo!

    There is a difference between “NO” and “I’m not ready to get married now”

    That’s all i will say

      This! I have no intention of marrying someone that doesn’t already know that I want to marry them. Certain things need to be discussed before we start getting engaged all willy-nilly.

        Swithrt are you saying you would love to know from him that he was going to propose before he actually does the normal occasional asking?

          Nee

          Actually what I meant is that i’d have already discussed marriage with him and tangible plans may have already been made. Not that he’ll just wake up day and decide he wants to jump the broom.

    Wait o…the thought of this just gave me a panic attack!

    What if it’s not Gracey’s kinda play play no that’s of course a yes; what if it’s not a ‘I’m not ready to get married now’.

    What if it’s the real life NO! Like the type she goes: Errr…why are you kneeling like that? What is…is that a ring? Jesus! what are you trying to do? Why didyu bring my friends and family here?… and then I shine teeth and say “will you marry me” [because I can’t even remember the lines I planned to drop before that] and she goes “NO, NO, NO, please stop already, why are you doing this to me? I won’t/can’t marry you!” Kaboom!

    *just me thinking out loud sha*

        Oh she knows o.. I was just thinking of a really scary bad%$&# crazy scenario..

        So throw some 5 years of relationship in there where we both know it’s all about marriage…and we’re ‘ready’ and from indications, she’s waiting for the question and then I pop it but then for some weird reason, she says NO like that!

        LOL… sounds one kain, I know… just that the poll is provoking weird thoughts

    To be on the safe side, guys, just buy the rings and don’t propose until she asks you about four years later when you want to make an honest woman of her.

    That’ll show them.

    I’m laughing my head off at the guys comments, so you guys are scared of the word NO.. If she tells you NO, chances are she’ll say NO again. So please don’t try. Except you want her to say Yes out of pity.

      If you’re lucky she let you have some leftover pride somewhere in you, just pick yourself up and jejely walk away, with some dignity that is…. Unless she’s Dangote’s daughter

        Buh say this is the girl you’ve spent the last say 5 years of your life with; you guys have been planning future sturvs together and she’s even picked out cute names for your two girls and son(unborn children o)… and you’ve pulled stunt- craziest proposal ever! Then all that ends at a NO!

        Shey you’d still “just pick yourself up and jejely walk away…”?

          If it’s possible that she wants all that and still says NO!, then she clearly doesn’t want to get married. She would be my perfect woman. In this scenario, I’ll jejely take a step backward and enjoy the “cohabitation”. I mean apart from the legal definition, ain’t nothing bad with cohabiting as long as we are happy. Marriage just spoils the fun

            Hahahaha! Nice one!

            Here’s the picture I’m tryna paint tho: yes, she wants all that but in the context of marriage…and yes, she’s always said she wants all that with you… Buh the day you drop on one knee with the big question, she says NO! The NO with the “yes I still want all that, but not with you…with someone else” vibe..

            LOL… I know it’s a weird scenario

            With someone else? After planning with me? This is why you don’t even imagine marriage…. Since she wants another, well… That’s my cue, I’m walking away Craig David’s style.

            So I’m the devil again for wanting to cohabitate ba? She said NO! whereas I’m just trying to make her dreams come true, but apparently it’s just and only in my dreams.

    Sure fire ways to get Bae to say yes.
    1. Take her up in a chopper
    2. Explain the dynamics of falling from a chopper (provide example or diagram if possible)
    3. Look into her eyes and give her a joker smile
    4. propose
    Congratulations, you’renow eengaged,

    There are a million reasons why a lady would say NO.

    If a lady is worth fighting for, nothing would deter a man even if it means being rejected a dozen times!

    I’ve composed my version of Richard George’s speech from Runaway Bride in readiness and I don’t even have a baé!

    Lol.
    If he proposes to me at the mall in front of strangers, I would say NO! Serious NO because it means he still doesn’t know me and what I like and want well. And I can’t marry a person who doesn’t know me enough.
    Will we break up? Depends on our discussion and decision afterwards.

    But really, I think a man should Be smart enough to decipher if his woman is ready for the big step before proposing to her, so as to avoid the ‘No, I’m not ready to commit my life to you’ reaction.
