Dear Shenani-Girl: Quickfire Marry Me

It’s the holiday season and as it turns out, Shenani-Girl has a little bit of time on her hands to answer your questions. Whether they’re about comics, life, movies, various geekery or other things, get your questions into Shenanigans for a brand-new Dear Abby style column that’ll be up as frequently as our podcasting superhero can handle. You can send in your questions to or via Shenani-Girl’s Tumblr page (all responses from Tumblr will be posted on the site).

Dear Shenani-Girl,

I keep asking women to marry me on the first date. They all seem horrified by this, but is it really that wrong?

-Striker Bell


Well hey there, Striker Bell,

Yes, yes that is very, very wrong. I’m not sure if I can help you.

Unless of course by “Striker Bell” you really meant to say that your name is Devendra Banhart (refer to this if you don’t get that reference).

I can’t really think of any “unless” situation other than the one already mentioned. That should really just not ever happen. You need time to develop a relationship with someone and figure out if all your good stuff and bad stuff will mesh together before you make a commitment to each other like that.

Stop proposing to women on the first date.

PS – I suspect that you aren’t REALLY proposing to people on the first date and that someone is just messing with me with this question, but if I happen to be wrong, well then… stop proposing to people. That’s approximately 1000x worse than saying “I love you” on the first date. And THAT’S super terrible. So yeah.

You can read all about Shenani-Girl and our other podcasting superheroes over on the Talking Comics Top Secret Database.

Stephanie is [obviously] a comic book fan, but she also considers herself an avid gamer, movie watcher, lover of music, board games fan (although she doesn’t find nearly enough time for them…) and being snarky. Oh, and Twitter. Twitter’s a hobby, right?…

What's your reaction?
