U Magazine: 2012

Last month I was interviewed for an article in an Irish magazine called U Magazine about women proposing to their boyfriends as part of Leap Day. Granted, I didn’t propose to Andreas on a Leap Day — I had no idea women needed a special day to propose. I proposed to him on New Year’s, when I felt like it.

Anyway, for a look at the whole “proposing to your boyfriend” phenomenon (and some revealing truths about how it worked out for me), you can read the article.

(Oh and PS: and we’ve got lots more proposal stories.)
