Jay Cutler Proposed To Kristin Cavallari In The Most Cutlerian Way Possible [UPDATE]

2013_2_6_cutler_small.jpg Men of Chicago: You're approaching romance all wrong. You're spending weeks (if you aren't making last-minute plans) putting together a Valentine's Day agenda for your better halves rivaling the best geocaching projects in an attempt to remind that someone you care, when all you should really be doing is giving her a coupon for a free Frosty from Wendy's, flipping over the mattress on your bed and paying her cab fare in the morning.

We say this after reading Kristin Cavallari's account of how Bears quarterback/Spaulding Smails stand-in Jay Cutler proposed to her a second time. Take it away, Cav half of "CutCav."

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."

How can we compete when Cutler is setting the bar so goddamn high?

Cavallari told E!'s Giuliana Rancic—we imagine over plates of food at RPM Italian the two only picked at—she and her nonchalant Casanova are planning a wedding this year; whether it's been strictly by text message is unknown at this time.

And while she wouldn't give specifics, the erstwhile MTV personality nevertheless teased (E!) by saying she and Cutler "know where, we know the colors, we have people booked...I'm hoping to keep it around 160."

Smoking optional.

Update: Cavallari took to Twitter to dispel the E! account of Cutler's proposal.
