I am a sucker for romance, so seeing or hearing a public proposal is the ultimate romantic gesture in my book. I am so fascinated by people who go to great lengths to propose.
Recently, I saw a Youtube proposal of a man who proposed to his girlfriend in public. She turned him down, rather coldly – I might add, and suddenly I wondered if public proposals are actually a bad idea.
When you are proposing for all the wrong reasons, it’s more than a bad idea, it’s a jerk move. If the grand gesture is actually a front for “I got caught cheating and this public proposal will get me out of the dog house” – then yeah, not a smart – or romantic way to go.
I used to think that I would just melt over a public proposal from the man I wanted to marry – now, I am convinced that a private and intimate moment is more like it.
What do you think? Would you want to have someone propose to you in front of friends, family, or perfect strangers?
Would you ever propose in public?
