Boring Men

Guilty as charged.

I mean, honestly, what girl doesn't imagine that ultimate breathtaking proposal...saw this on Facebook the other day and thought it was awesome.

That is, until I read this article. 

Convicted! As awesome as overwhelming experiences and romance and surprises are, they're not what's important. 

Here's some clips from the article.....but if you have time, go read the whole thing. It's worth it.

How a man proposes isn’t what makes him romantic. It’s how a man purposes to lay down his life that makes him romantic.

The real romantics are the boring ones — they let another heart bore a hole deep into theirs.
Get it: Life – and marriage proposals — isn’t not about one up-manship — it’s about one down-manship.It’s about the heart-boring years of sacrifice and going lower and servingIt’s not about how well you perform your proposal. It’s about how well you let Christ perform your life.


  1. That picture is so funny! But wow, what a great article. So good to refocus and get into the right perspective. I've been thinking about this lately...what true love is. This was a great reminder! :)

    1. I agree! Our culture has so skewed the definition of "love" and "romance". But when you hear it said the right way, don't you just want to stand up and cheer?!? :) :)

  2. Excellent perspective. Being married to a man who is the epitome of true love, I totally agree. And I wouldn't trade my "boring" proposal for anything in the world! Hair messy, dirty clothes after working hard all day, and he awkwardly blurted out, "I love you and I want you to be my wife." Precious memory.
