Sadie Hawkins Day!

I want to wish everybody a happy Sadie Hawkins Day! How many women do you think will ask a man to marry her today? Do you think that women should have to wait for the man to ask, unless it is Sadie Hawkins day? I think women can ask a man to marry her anytime, anyday, but it is fun to hear about the happenings of Sadie Hawkins day!

Hi olivemai, This sounds like one of those legendary pagan rituals practiced in America, like Halloween and stuff! I can't help but picture Sadie Hawkins as Freddy Kruger in drag - what was she thinking??? Surely Sadie Hawkins day is on Friday 13th... I can't think of a better way to make all those red-blooded men's blood run cold! One thing that is genetically programmed into all men of the male gender is to avoid commitment at all costs. Remember the disturbing music from the shower scene in Psycho? That's the music that should be played as the girl approaches her boyfriend on Sadie Hawkin's Day!

Hi olivemai, Yes & no (or maybe no & yes)... As long as the man is asking, then the man has control of the situation, and can keep it at a safe distance (as God intended). Turning the tables and unleashing hordes of eagerly prospective wives onto the poor sods is tantamount to emotional terrorism! Let's be honest here (and this is just between you and me, OK?)... Come closer... Just a bit closer... Close enough! Now let's share some generalities - Male humans are fundamentally nomadic creatures of great wisdom & nobility, who love freedom and abhor commitment... And their female counterparts are brooding types who like nothing better than a ood gossip, and sooner or later go into "nesting" mode in order to raise some chickens... But the men-folk got more important things to do than raising chickens - like rioting and rampaging and pillaging... So that's why, on the Eighth Day, God spake solemnly that the holy institution of marriage shall henceforth be initiated by the men of this world... And that's why Sadie Hawkins day is a thing of abject terror amongst the world's righteous menfolk, who do their best to rule the world and yet still somehow have their good intentions undermined by the cunning of women seeking to raise chickens.

A long time ago I remember we had Sadie Haskins dances at dance parties, which, as the name suggests gave women a chance to ask a guy to dance instead of having to wait and dance with the ones who asked us. That seemed like a good idea, but in truth back in those near pre-historic times most of the women were to shy to ask just any guy, so not too many took advantage of the ploy. It seems to me that if people know how they feel about each other, they pretty much don't need to have one ask the other, but can just get married nowadays.
