I can think of few things more narcissistic than making one's proposal a pubic event.

The only proposal I want to see is one guy proposing to another during halftime at a Cowboys game.

Do couples not talk about their futures? No wonder divorce is so high. My boyfriend and I have been together for 2.5 years and discussed where we see ourselves and what we expect out of life. He wants a ring, I want to live together first, then I'll pop the question. We both want kids. He wants to live in the suburbs, and I like the city, but we compromised on moving somewhere in the suburbs that is a short commute for me and where we can still enjoy city life. This guy just took a chance and made an ass of himself. Perhaps his girlfriend (like myself) wanted to progress the relationship more before she thought about marriage.

Always seemed to me the guys who do it are thinking "Oh boy, if i do it here she can't possibly say no" so it's a bit of a dick move in the first place. Good job to any woman who doesn't give in.

Let this be a lesson, kids.  Do your proposals in PRIVATE.  That way, when it actually goes bad, no one goes on Twitter and Facebook to point and laugh at you.

topcon: Yeah, nothing like ruining a special, intimate moment by doing it at a stupid farking game.  Real or fake, anyone who does this is a dipshiat.

I wouldn't even have told my girlfriend "I love you" for the first time at a sporting event, what makes anyone think it's okay to say something as important and life changing as "will you marry me?" at such a place?


Some people are attention whores.

I could only see it, if for some reason that team/park was a part of their dating history-- like they're both super-intense fans of that particular team, and they meet each other at a game.

Otherwise it's just a really shiatty engagement story.

It's an unfortunate truth that all videos like this must now be proven absolutely true beyond a shadow of a doubt before they can be believed. Until that happens, they must be assumed to be fake, posed, trolling, etc.

Look, guys... Just NO.

No embedding the proposal in a video game.
No putting it on the jumbotron at the ball game.
No public proposals on local or national TV.
No announcing the engagement at a party before actually proposing.
No proposing in the middle of the party, either.
No putting it on a blimp, billboard, or anywhere public.
No hiring someone in costume to arrest your girl and then proposing to her in front of the crowd that assembles.
In fact: No proposals that put her on the spot with witnesses, or embarrass her with their ridiculously public nature.

It's like this: When you propose in a wildly public way, you're not saying "I love you and want to spend my life with you." -- What you're ACTUALLY saying is, "I want to show everyone that you're my property, so I'm going to do the modern equivalent of bashing you on the head in front of the tribe before dragging you to my cave."

Seriously... If you really love her and want to be with her, then propose in a humble, quiet, private, romantic way. No tricks. No pranks. No stunts. No spectacles. Just go for a walk in a nice meadow or on the beach, tell her you love her and can't imagine life without her, and ask her to marry you. If you're a bit more progressive, you might even consider saying "Let's get married" instead of "will you marry me", because the former indicates it's a mutual decision being made, while the latter says "I decided and now I'm giving you an ultimatum which will result in us either being together forever or breaking up RIGHT NOW."

If you ask me, the guy deserved that "no" because he was doing some awkward male chest-beating by trying to corner her in front of a crowd. F♥ck that noise. Until he learns some propriety, he should remain alone.

balki1867: Headso: Let's assume this isn't fake for a minute... If the woman actually cares at all about the guy she could just say yes and then later in the car on the way home say "oh yeah... uhhh... that whole proposal thing I actually don't want to marry you, I didn't want to make some weird scene at the ballpark but I got like 6 other dudes I'm seeing right now."

Yeah but that could have its own set of consequences.  What if he immediately called his mom, best friend, etc to tell them the good news only to find out later that she was trying to be nice?  All in all, it sucks for the dude, but she did the right thing.


Yep. She's under no obligation to spare him from his embarasment.

Oh, if my fiance had pulled this shiat in public, you bet your ass I would have marred him.

/which is why I beat him to the punch and asked in private

Domestic battery is a little extreme, don't you think?  I think saying "no" was enough... damn but people are wont to get violent these days.

Having trouble reading?

You had trouble writing, and he made a joke about it. Check the underlined word. Look closely.


The person she quoted made that typo first, and she was making a joke about that. It doesn't even make sense to put "married" where she put "marred".

Were you aware of the New Britain Rock Cats prior to today?

How many New Britain Rock Cats stories have you read about in the paper before today?


Wasn't even aware of them until you posted their name here, and now I'll forget it. As I stated in another post, this does nothing to bring publicity to the team, most people didn't read the article, they just skipped to the video, and even the ones who read the story probably skipped right over the team name in the article...

Generally speaking, it is a very bad idea to propose marriage unless the answer is a foregone conclusion. That goes double if you're going all-out on the ceremonial style of proposal with a ring or similar really expensive token, and quadruple if you're going to do it in a public place.

Marriage is a big freaking deal, it should only be embarked upon after a serious discussion about the pros and cons, it is more serious than buying a house, starting a business, moving country, etc, it is not something that should be based on one surprise proposal.

The guy looks like a player to me. Probably a male gold digger who's only known the girl a few weeks and has tried to "sweep her off her feet". Lucky escape for her I'd say. He'll brush himself off and start on his next victim.

d23: this crap is usually a hoax...


As they say in the story, what would the point of it being fake be? Not only that, everyone is awkward, nobody was expecting that reaction, and nobody acts like they knew what to do with a "No"... They wold have have in-depth interviews with her and made her a celebrity if it was fake. Instead, she just runs off and the guy with the mic stumbles through a 'We'll check back later'.

I really, REALLY see no reason or point to this being fake. It's not going to bring more people to the game, if it was fake, it was horribly executed, and she sure didn't seem like a 3rd rate actress as much as a woman who had no idea what was going on.
