Please, Jessica Simpson, Don’t Propose!

Jessica Simpson may be not-so-subtly nudging her new dude, Eric Johnson, to the altar. In addition to taking him on lavish trips and letting him crash at her place, she allegedly just purchased a $50,000 three carat emerald cut ring just so he would know that she doesn’t care that he’s too broke to get…

Frisky Rant: Proposing On Twitter Is Lame

This week, I tweeted about how I wished I was at Comic-Con, what was going on with my Frisky posts, and how awesome “True Blood” is, especially crazy-pants Franklin. This is the kind of light fare most people post on Twitter, because the site is a place to put links to amusing cat videos or…

Dear Wendy: “I’m Dying For My Boyfriend To Propose”

I’ve been dating my boyfriend for almost seven years. We’ve talked about getting married and having kids constantly, but nothing’s come out of it. We’ve even set a tentative date and picked colors. We’ve picked colors!!! But he still hasn’t proposed. I’m getting really frustrated and wondering if all the talk is just that: talk.

Guy Talk: How To Propose Like A Champ

Men fear commitment the way that dogs fear vacuum cleaners. And actually, men kind of fear vacuum cleaners, too. But marriage is a scary prospect for any person, and guys tend to ridicule friends who take the plunge and decide to propose. Yeah, it’s completely juvenile and undeniably silly. Guys try not to show their…

Flash Mob Helps Create Most Unforgettable Marriage Proposal

Regardless what your feelings are on the whole “flash mob” debate (did you know there was a debate? Yep, some people love them and some people think they’re stupid and cheesy ad annoying), this is by far one of the more interesting, if not creative, ways we’ve heard of someone proposing. A guy hired…

Reggie Bush To Propose To Kim Kardashian—If He Wins The Super Bowl

We’ve shared with you some pretty lame proposals recently—the proposal via Twitter, the “Entourage” proposal mid-fight, the helium balloon proposal. But I’ve never heard of the “If I win a Super Bowl ring, you get an engagement ring” proposal. Apparently, that’s what’s going on with Kim Kardashian and Reggie Bush. According to the New York

Are Marriage Proposals Dead?

On the season finale of “Entourage” this week, one of the characters, Eric, proposes to his girlfriend, Sloan, only it wasn’t a romantic get-down-on-one-knee proposal, so much as it was a seemingly spur-of-the-moment declaration of his commitment to her. “You’re never going to be able to commit — not to anyone,” Sloan accuses during a…

Is It A Proposal If There Isn’t A Ring?

Times are tough around the world, and we’re all cutting back in some area of our life. In Japan, one common cost-cutting measure seems to be diamond engagement rings. The percent of men who bought engagement rings will slip from 1993’s 80 percent to just 50 percent this year, according to estimates from the Yano…

A $2,600 Proposal Cake?

Figuring out how to propose can be just as nerve racking as deciding on an engagement ring and determining when to propose, and an entrepreneur is trying to make the proposal just as special as the ring itself.

Being Engaged: It’s Not So Bad!

You might remember back in December when I was home for the holidays my mom passed down my great-grandmother’s engagement ring and I debated whether to use it for my own engagement.
