Uplifting Proposals Efferentis Rogationibus
Want to have a proposal she will never forget? How about flying midair at 13,000 feet and asking that special someone if they will marry you? According to Metro Magazine, that is exactly what Daniel Dixon did to propose to his girlfriend of twelve years, Nicola Burgess. More and more, people are trying to find unique and memorable ways to pop the question. To create a moment filled with exhilarating feelings of danger or terror, thrill or obscurity will leave the strongest impressions creating a moment she will never forget. Creating these strong emotions is what Edmund Burke refers to as a source of the sublime. Elements such as magnificence, like a starry heaven, or vastness, such as that of a mountain of great altitude, are powerful sources of the sublime, guaranteed to make lasting impressions. So if you plan on making your proposal one she will never forget, think of sources of the sublime. Another hint, if you plan on skydiving, or bungee jumping for that matter, make sure you give her the ring after you safely land.
