George’s Two Proposals from Two Sexes : A comparison
Do you guys remember that video about a gay reporter taking off his shirt and proposing to George in a press conference? While that scene was huge, apparently there was another less popular press conference drama with a woman asking George’s hand in marriage, putting on a veil, bringing in the minister all the way till ‘you may kiss the bride’!
Quite amusingly, George doesn’t seem to be as well spirited as he did in the gay proposal video. He almost looks like he’s bored or annoyed. I also take it that he does not like the woman. Maybe it was because the Sarah Larson bit with the broken leg prop was a bit of a stretch.
Any how, George seems to cringe from the prospect of getting a proposal more than from that of people thinking he is gay! He obviously liked the gay reporter’s spontaneity as opposed to the woman’s painstaking preparations. He even graced the guy with, “Its hard when you take one big chance and it doesn’t really work. It’s always embarrassing when you take one real swing for the fences and it just falls flat!” He was so good at making the guy feel better that if George was really gay, he would have actually given the reporter a shot! But all he did for the girl was to humor her by going along with the little play of marrying her.
Well, the girl didn’t really leave anything for imagination. Watching the two episodes again just made me realize how similar the situation is in real life! A girl/woman goes out and out with the details, telling herself she just wants to make her guy happy. In return all she expects is a sweet goodnight kiss or commitment or maybe even a proposal. And she really does deserve what she wants for all the work she puts in! And you know what, she may even get it. But the question will always remain: Did he do it just to humor me?
On the other hand, if you are a man, no matter how off-balance you were with the presumptions and expectations about a woman (just like the guy who thought George Clooney was actually gay), all you have to do to win her over is to do something spontaneous or even wacky! Stand under her balcony and coo “I can’t smile without you” or suddenly appear with a ring a year after you broke up because you didn’t want to marry her after seven years of dating or just make a botched up birthday cake instead of taking her out to the fancy dinner that she really deserves. That’s all you got to do and she’s right back where she was slaving away at making you happy (in her own way)!
Well, to tell the same old story, women need to be more spontaneous and men need to put in a little more work than what categorizes under ‘desperate measures’.
PS: Do watch the video of the gay reporter’s proposal again if you want to compare notes! Plus, its actually a lot more entertaining than this one.
PPS: Share this posts with your friends and ask them if they agree with me! Waiting to hear back from you guys 🙂
