Engagement, or the act of engagement. Remember when two people who are madly in love with one another shared a special moment? Family and loved ones gathered around and shared this moment with them as well. No cell phones no lights camera action? Yeah this is long gone.
I feel like social media and the new generation has destroyed the beauty of getting engaged. This is my opinion and if you do not agree, you can simply scroll to the next website thanks. I will not just say social media and my generation ruined engagements without fully explaining my point of view.
If I one day get engaged to a man (I feel bad for him lol), I want that moment to be special. Of course he would need permission from my father, but I want that moment to be about me and him only. No Snap Chat filters, or Instagram cliche quotes and poses.
Getting engaged or married should be a special moment that doesn’t have to be broadcast any and everywhere. I feel as if there is a lack of privacy throughout this world, and ironically as a blogger I have grown to be a very private person.
I loathe people who have to Snap Chat or Tweet every step of their lives. I use to Tweet and Snap Chat everything until I one day realized that me Bria yeah I am a brand so a lot of things now for me had to become private.
Last point of this engagement topic, my generation and beyond. I was born in 1992 and I am currently 25 years of age. I feel as if anyone around my age bracket has also ruined the art of getting engaged I do not care fight me these are my thoughts lol. Everything is a competition I feel like. Who has the better relationship? Which couple is doing what? Who does what the celebrities do? Like to me it is all a bunch of bullshit and your “significant other” possible is sleeping with your best friend. All I am saying love should be pure and something to enjoy, not something that you need to compete about.
No one has to agree with me on whether putting your engagement on social media should not be a thing. That is just my perspective at this point. Some things should be left to yourself due to them being so sacred. I want to enjoy that moment when someone gets down on one knee and asks for a hand in marriage. I do not want to have to redo that special moment all because my silly cousin forgot to put the flash on her snap.
I will do more posts like this as much as I can. I see myself as the new age Carrie Bradshaw and I have so much to say and I have all of the opportunity to say them. So comment below and let me know your thoughts on whether an engagement should be a private thing or posted on social media, and whether this generation as ruined the beauty of engagement or love.
