No, your eyes do not deceive you. This is a leap year. If you’re a man in a long term relationship and your girlfriend is wondering why you haven’t yet popped the question, run for the hills. According to Irish legend, this is the one day women can get down on bended knee and propose to you. So, this is the perfect opportunity to break up with your girlfriend before she blindsides you with a marriage proposal. Or, if you really want to get the point across that you have no intention of ever marrying her, this is a great time to fake your own death and move to Alaska to become a crab fisherman. Either way it’s better than seeing your girlfriend down on bended knee for any reasons other than an indecent proposal.
