Public Marriage Proposal

When I first saw a Public Marriage Proposal via YouTube, I thought to myself, can a guy be anymore sweeter than this? I mean you should really give him some credit on this because he is not ashamed or embarrassed showing the whole world how much he loves the woman. My favorite was when a couple were watching street dancers in a mall when all of a sudden, her boyfriend stepped in to the group dancing like he was really part of the troupe. After the performance, he proposed. But now, I feel that public marriage proposals are becoming tacky and impersonal. I even told myself that it is unfair that these guys put women in a very difficult spot. What if they are not yet ready? If they said "NO", the woman will become the insensitive, heartless one in the relationship but in reality, she is just being honest to herself. How about you? What's your stand?

Public anything does not excite me. I don't need to prove anything to the public.

I agree but I still want a grand gesture for a proposal. It can be just the two of us. ;)

I know a couple where he arranged to a public proposal in the form of having them put it up on the video monitor at the Staples Center in Los Angeles during a Lakers basketball game. In their case, I think it was appropriate, because their first date was a Lakers game in that stadium, and they're both huge Lakers fans. Also, they'd been talking about the possibility of getting married for some time before he actually popped the question, so he was already reasonably assured of what her answer was going to be. They've been married for more than 10 years now. Even so, I still voted for personal, intimate proposals. Most couples don't have the kind of backstory that my friends do, and public spectable proposals can turn out so awkwardly for all the reasons you mentioned..

Awww...that's really cute and sweet. I like seeing public proposals if executed well but my vote also is traditional proposing.
