I always hope for a soul crushing "no".  Public proposals are a d-bag move.
 
2014-06-18 12:28:00 PM  
Sounds like a security threat. Better confiscate all those flowers.

Elaborate proposals are exercises in manipulation.

No, the soul crushing begins after the ceremony.  Try to keep up.

I only want to see your marriage proposal if I also get to watch the conception of your first child.
 
2014-06-18 12:30:37 PM  
bet she would have been embarassed if there was a line of people with flowers waiting for her to come out of the john.

I have no time for nonsense when getting off a plane.

I'm not one for sentimentality and I think public proposals are just gauche but i found myself smiling while reading this story

I guess i'm a little sentimental after all
 
2014-06-18 12:31:02 PM  
Here's a link to video of the proposal (after the ad, sorry).

It always seemed odd to me that the topic wouldn't be discussed to some degree before an actual proposal.

Woman: A chrysanthemum?  WTF?  Another one?   Chrysanthemums?  What are you people doing?  Do you know that roach powder is made from chrysanthemums?  Get that away from me!  No, I don't want another chrysanthemum.  Whose idea was this?  I'm allergic to chrysanthemums.

Ugh. I wouldn't go along. So you're getting married, big farking deal.
 
2014-06-18 12:35:00 PM  
Didn't I see this months/years ago?
 
2014-06-18 12:36:01 PM  
Why does this kind of stuff irritate the living shiat out of me?

Probably because some douche want this private, personal moment to be all "look at me! Look at me!" And you really don't have much choice but to participate in his bullshiat or you suddenly become "that guy."

I've got plenty of other shiat to do as I get off a plane. Take care of your own proposal you narcissistic ass.

And so help me if anyone says it's getting dusty in here. I will punch you in the face!
 
2014-06-18 12:36:02 PM  
Who in the fark meets anyone at the terminal anymore? Sorry, but I'm not going through the TSA security theater if I'm not flying myself. I'll be in the cell phone lot; call or text me when you've got your bags.

TheGogmagog: It always seemed odd to me that the topic wouldn't be discussed to some degree before an actual proposal.


That's one of those things where if you aren't absolutely, positively, completely sure about the answer you don't ask the question. It seems to me that many of the couples out there now are kicking the idea around... it's not that big a surprise to the woman. She might not expect it right then, but she does know it's coming. Anybody worth marrying will still be thrilled and excited and grateful that you were willing to talk about it beforehand.

Drop it out of the blue and you don't know if she'll accept? Yeah... you are NOT ready to pop the question.

FTFY.  A savvy woman has the soul crushed before a single "I do" is exchanged. Then it's straight to the balls and spine.
 
2014-06-18 12:36:32 PM  
Part of me likes proposals like this and the other part (the lazy part) is like, "that's a lot of planning to do...meh, just propose to her."

A few of my friends that have been married, never did huge proposals like this but just did small things in private (as far as I know).

You can't even get through security anymore without a boarding pass. The days of seeing someone off or picking them up at the gate are over.

At the Kansas City airport? Man, that's a horrible spot to do a proposal.
 
2014-06-18 12:39:43 PM  
Then again, people could do what my dad did when he proposed...

On the very first date, after dinner, he proposed to her (while they were still at the restaurant I think).  She said yes and they've been together for 36 (?) years. :)


/granted they knew each other for a bit before then
//my mom was really into my dad before the date but my dad wasn't interested in my mom at first (so the story goes)

Yeah, it's just tone deaf to everyone else on the plane being actual human beings and not little pawns in your cheeky viral proposal video. Want to hug your grandma when you get off the plane? Tough luck, you've got to pay fealty to Captain Bullshiat's future bride because his life is more important than yours.

IRQ12: Rule number 1:  Don't set high expectations.


....or make a "Plan B."

I told the limo driver the night I proposed that if she said "no" I'd be picking up hookers and he should have a tarp ready for the back of the vehicle to protect it from the volume of skank and whiskey I was going to go through in the 6 hours I had on the rental.

/she said yes
 
2014-06-18 12:42:13 PM  
Your public and obnoxious proposal is one thing.  Asking me to participate in it raises you to a whole new level of douchebaggery, particularly when I've just sat in coach for three hours and ended up in Kansas City.

At least she would be standing close to the gate the plane was parked at ... and there is a good chance NO ONE else was there ...
 
2014-06-18 12:44:40 PM  
That's a weird thing to ask of people on your flight. It's not even that romantic... Getting flowers from a bunch of tired, busy strangers, and then getting proposed to in a crowded airport? Eh, better than putting the ring inside a corn dog or some shiat.

Unless you're a local tv news crew, or are the subject of tonight's feel-good, surprise, spontaneous love segment, I guess.

Yes!  This fellow just raised narcissism to a new level.

How about you ask people to participate in the proposal at exactly the same rate you want them to participate in the consummation of the marriage?

Men: never stick your dick in crazy.

Women: never marry a man who does a big-deal, very public proposal and puts you in the spot. He is a narcissist who will manipulate you about everything. When you no longer stroke his massive ego enough, he'll start boinking someone else and you'll be history.
