Here goes nothing…. As I was getting into position, I told Sophia how I recognized these guys and found out who they really were. When it came to actually liking someone and having a crush, I have been way more likely to hold back and not let anyone get too close. Which I did fairly often! You see, one night in Madrid, Sophia and I were on a walk and ended up in the front courtyard of the church that the group was staying at. The view was amazing and leaning off the edge was awesome! As time went on over the next few months, much planing went into making the proposal perfect. You made it through one of my normal rants/story telling times. I got called out at one point because I forgot to fill in my postal code on my waiver. A few years earlier, when Sophia and I were first in Toronto over Reading Week, we had visited the CN Tower. It was at this point that I met our guides and was set up with the fake ring and ring box within my Edge Walk suit. Recorded in London in 1989, “Hawaiian Sophie” is one of Jay-Z’s early appearances on wax alongside his fellow Brooklyn MC and mentor Jaz-O. Jay pretty much told me he would not be proposing on the Edge Walk so I went up expecting nothing but the thrill of hanging out 1000 feet above Toronto. Silly me! I figured the people with us were a random group of 5 guys who had never met before. Now, there is a spectrum that we all can shift around in and swing from side to side, from Sophie to Jay and back again. I took stock of the risk and reward, evaluated my outcomes and decided to go for it. I had made discreet eye contact with Carl from Cadence. Now, there is a spectrum that we all can shift around in and swing from side to side, from Sophie to Jay and back again. ( Log Out / Starting in late January of 2014, I got in contact with Cadence and asked them if they would be willing to be part of my proposal to Sophia with them singing, Perfect Kiss. Aspiring models Now if you are still reading this, YAY! Change ). So as the emotionally intelligent woman that I am, I realized the situation. So what happens when two people actually like each other, want to date each other more seriously, and both are Sophie? Jay sang the last lines to me, capturing 110% of my focus. A ring was bought, Cadence was booked, the Edge Walk tickets were bought and everyone involved from myself to the staff at the CN Tower were all filled in. We headed up to the top, started the walk and on the third stop, the north side of the CN Tower, Sophia was taking a picture as she hung over downtown Toronto. There are two clearly distinct ways to go about romantic relationships and there are two types of people that embody this: Sophie and Jay. Being the adventurous type, we had wanted to do the new Edge Walk on the CN Tower, but because it was winter, we were out of season. View the profiles of people named Sophie Jay. Jay pretty much told me he would not be proposing on the Edge Walk so I went up expecting nothing but the thrill of hanging out 1000 feet above Toronto.

Jokingly I had mentioned about how awesome it would be to propose up there. Then on the third side, Jay and I are leaning back for a picture and he says something about just realizing where he knows the other guys from and calls them over. He kissed me, reached into his fancy orange jumpsuit and pulled out a ring box on a string. She is cautious and calculated and has been told she is “emotionally unavailable”. I reassured her that these were not my plans (mu-hahaha!). Sophie is a thoughtful person who thinks before she leaps. The proposal was five months in the making. I was so emotionally invested that I had no idea what Jay said to the guys next till I watched the video after. Someone needs to step up and be brave and be the vulnerable, direct, ready-to-be-crushed Jay. Not risk getting actually hurt. The post-proposal, scared but excited at the same time photo. Better to have loved and lost then never loved at all. I have personally spent the majority of my single time as a Sophie. Change ), You are commenting using your Facebook account.

Then they are in front of us and he says, “This is Cadence.” Everything hit me at once in that moment and Jay got the completely surprised reaction that this set up deserved! So we had both said that next time we were both in Toronto, we would do it! (I’m really bad at remembering celebrity-types.) And who the hell wants to do that?! ( Log Out / Well, unlucky for me, Sophia has a pretty good memory and confronted me on this several times when we had decided to do the Edge Walk on June 1st, while we were in town for our friends, Tom and Annette’s wedding. Throughout all of orientation, everyone was as cool as a cucumber and Sophia thought that Cadence were five random guys taking the walk with us. I of course played dumb and kept saying that I didn’t recall ever saying such a thing. Scratch that, it was three years in the making! The view was amazing and leaning off the edge was awesome! She has been hurt before so she is intentional with who she lets into her heart. Upon hearing that they were Cadence, she freaked out! It was at the end of the song at which point I reached into my suit and pulled out the (fake) ring and asked her to marry me. And because of it, I have found my fair share of Jays in the world to date. I knew exactly what was going on and for the first time adrenaline started pumping and I couldn’t stop smiling. She of course said yes!! I had my iPod on me and I decided to introduce Sophia to one of my favourite music groups, Cadence. But the Jay in me knew that the time had come and my fear of rejection was not stronger then my bravery and asking for what I wanted and needed was never wrong. Better to have loved and lost then never loved at all. Explaining our story, they agreed to sing Perfect Kiss for us as we leaned off of the CN Tower. Over the next three years, this song would become ‘our’ song and whenever we were missing each other from being over 2000 km apart, it comforted us. It was time! Jay is a bleeding heart who would rather feel all of the feelings. Change ), You are commenting using your Google account. This part I remember crystal clear.

Again and again I found myself dating a guy who was honest and vulnerable and willing to put himself out there for me to crush. ( Log Out / Then Cadence is singing our song and I am just amazed that Jay arranged all of this and that it is happening to us. Jay goes all in and understands that he may in fact get hurt, but it is worth it. ( Log Out / Jay is a bleeding heart who would rather feel all of the feelings. I figured that dating Sophia, if I were to ever propose, that it would have to be an epic proposal. I had the potential to be crushed, it was a real concern. www.mtv.co.uk/.../geordie-ogs-sophies-story-mtv-shows-sophie-talks...jay The latest Tweets from Sophi and jay (@sophiandjay). I was called over to take a picture with her. He said, “This is not the ring” – it was a ring made out of cord making us all laugh – “and it’s kind of hard to get down on one knee right now… But will you marry me?”. Jay goes all in and understands that he may in fact get hurt, but it is worth it. The idea all started when we were in Madrid, Spain for World Youth Day 2011.
