Dear Miss Manners: In the past year, two male friends whom I have known for years proposed marriage. I turned them down due to the fact that both asked me in a text message.
So. Many. Questions! 1. How old are you guys? (27) 2. Two in one year! Not so much a question. 3. Did you get a new hairdo recently or something? 4. Is it possible they were being funny? Sarcasm in text messages is hard to read. 5. What were you guys doing for all those years? 6. Being friends? 7. Are you sure? 8. Did you turn them down also via text? 9. How? Just read what you texted back. 10. Etc, ∞
