Cue The Theme Music From Jaws

Things Seemed To Be Going So Swimmingly, Dear

British men find the prospect of asking a woman to marry them almost as scary as swimming with sharks, according to a new survey. Four out of five men were so petrified of proposing that they preferred to forego tradition and wait for their girlfriends to propose to them.

FOOTNOTE: Slight hitch.

I suppose it doesn't matter as much who asks who as long as they each get an honest answer.
The old tradition of men asking went out with men being in charge.

There was me thinking that marriage was as happy as swimming with dolphins.

There is a study done that says

“Men tend to be more committed to the online relationships than women, possibly because the anonymity of writing gives them a chance to express their emotions more readily than in real life"

So probably the problem guys have is a kind of phobia of expressing their emotions in public

Tell me about it! It's not only British men, David - it's more of a worldwide guy thing.

Hubby took me to a posh restaurant to propose, but he had chronic indigestion throughout and hardly managed to eat a bite of the meal.
