kristin cavallariKristin Cavallari gave the world a peek behind the proverbial curtain recently when she let it slip that her fiance, Jay Cutler, proposed to her via text message. And if you don't think that's bad, I'll do you one better: He apparently mailed the engagement ring to her after she, I'm guessing, texted back "Y".

Cavallari told E! News: "It was so silly. I was in the airport, leaving Chicago. We had just spent however many days together and we were texting and somehow it came up, like, 'Oh, shall we get married?' We're like, 'Yeah, OK.' And then he sent my ring in the mail. So I actually had my ring sitting at home for a couple of weeks before I put it on."

Romantical.

To be honest, I'm not as much put off by the mail order engagement ring as I am the "Wil u mry me?" proposal. I know we're a text-y society, but dude, some things ought to be done in person.

Marriage proposals are among those things. No need to spell it out in roses, guys, but popping the question via using your voice is a nice touch.

Other things you shouldn't text? Oh, I don't know, how about when someone dies (got that text before); when you want to say you're sorry that someone died; when someone's getting divorced; the details of a wedding invitation. Basically, anything that's big or formal news, and that doesn't require a photo, don't text.

If Kristin's cool with a textosal, good for her. Me? I'm a little more old-fashioned -- u no wht i meen?

How did your significant other propose?
