This video is kind of hard to watch. A young man does a bended-knee proposal to his girlfriend in front of hundreds of people. Ring in hand, he says all the sugary sweet stuff you expect to hear, but his girlfriend is giving him every indication that she is not going to say “Yes.” Homegirl is literally shaking her head “No” the entire time and even says to him “Please, stand up. You can’t fix it like this.”
Check out the video below…
Not knowing the particulars of their situation, I think it was pretty brave of her to still say “No” even though she was being pressured to accept the proposal just to save face and not make a big scene. You can hear someone in the crowd say “Don’t embarrass him.”
If your sweetie proposed to you in a public way and you felt like it was not the right time, how would you handle that situation?
