As we all know, today's Valentine's Day.
That means plenty of marriage proposals, furious Tinder swiping, hastily-bought flowers and chocolates or maybe, just maybe, some people don't buy into a holiday popularised by an American stationery maker. Nah, of course not.
Anyway, public proposals have been a real
scourge thing lately, with people proposing at concerts, cinemas, in the middle of parades - just about anywhere they can force people to acknowledge their relationships and make as big a splash as possible.
James Grieg, however, may have topped this. He's used the Observer Magazine to propose to his girlfriend, Katie Moore.
Right about now, in a country hotel, a man is asking a woman to marry him via the cover of the Observer Magazine.

No pressure, then. He just used the frontpage of a rapidly dying medium to ask her to partake in a ritual ceremony that is also dying out. Good job all round. Well done. Not at all clawing or desperately attention-seeking in any way, shape or form.
Are we just bitter, worn-out husks of human beings that we can't see how nice this is? Or is it actually something you'd want yourself?
