When I proposed to my fiance, I wanted it to be at least somewhat private and meaningful. I chose one of our favorite restaurants in one of our favorite cities as the setting to pop the question. I waited for all the tables around us to clear. And, most importantly, I turned off my smartphone. The last thing I wanted was this once-in-a-lifetime moment to be interrupted by texts and email notifications. The guy in this story, though, proposed to his lady in a way that was decidedly opposite from mine; he was updating his Twitter the whole time.
