How Do I Love Thee?

How Do I Love Thee? Let me count the ways
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height

My soul can reach when feeling out of sight
For the ends of Being and ideal Grace!

Ah, I know I know, I have borrowed Ms Elizabeth Barrett Browning's famous sonnet for expressing my love for that special someone I have a huge crush on, but, but, but...fret not, for plagiarism is not my way, and this beautiful sonnet is just my primer, helping me channelize my deep emotions and sometime soon I intend to use this love and energy to put together and magnum opus of my on love and his myriad in which I will pour my heart and emotions out and propose to the crush of my life. 

But the till the time inspiration strikes and I sit down to put my thoughts on love together, I have been inspired to try some fun ways to propose too. You see since Valentine's Day is just the corner, the move messenger Cupid is working over-time to inspire people to make 'The' move, ahem, ahem...and your truly too has been a victim of his arrow too. And spicing things up is Close Up's fun Cupid Games campaign! Check out this hilarious video to see what the campaign is all about - got it right, alright! It's all about taking the dare to propose to your crush! And you see, besides the cupid's vicious arrow, it is this video that has inspired me to get going! So how I am going to propose to my crush! See, I have got it all figured out (wink! wink!), and here's what I will do! 

Put it out in the newspaper!
A full page proposal in the newspaper would be daring, quirky and lots of crazy fun! I can already imagine him breaking into a beautiful smile and nodding in appreciation!

Record it for the Radio!
So 'he' is tuned in to to his favourite FM show featuring retro hits, Kishore Kumar singing...O mere dil ke chaine, chain aaye mere dil ko...and the music fades and there I come on-air...doling out all my love for him! Oopsie, doopsie, it's got me blushing already! Do-able! Very do-able! 

During a trekking expedition!
So we are on an arduous trek, and summit the mighty peak together and there I go, all ready flaunting a proposal flag at him.  Something like - Let's trek through the life together! Hmm...serious, but bold.

Bless the Cupid Games campaign to fill me up with these fun and unique proposal ideas. Trust me they are so much better and energizing than your mundane - Will you marry me? And now they, they have got me in the mood, let me think of some more daring and quirky proposal ideas and zero in on one.

What? The Magnum Opus? Well, it can wait!! :)
