Rule 1 - always discuss getting married with the other party before you even consider a proposal.  And for God's sake, ask her if she has any preferred scenarios.  You can still surprise her with the actual proposal - time, place, exact scenario* - but at least you will know about "I absolutely hate it when people propose at sporting events" before you go and make a jackass of yourself.


* My favorite was when my friend's pre-husband made all the arrangements for the proposal with her full knowledge - then did it a week early.  She walked right into her perfect scenario with nary a clue because she already had the day marked on her calendar, so dismissed everything falling into place as just coincidence.  She got exactly what she wanted and was gobsmacked all at the same time.  I on the other hand didn't even realize my wife thought I had proposed until two weeks later...

When my ex and I were together, we went to a Seahawks game after being in the relationship for about 3-4 months.....

And for some reason, she had a strong hunch that I was going to propose, and the Jumbotron would be involved.  I have no idea why she assumed that, because I had no plans to propose that day, and I had to tell her three times before she believed me.

/Thankfully we never got married and I broke things off four years later.

Definitely for Rule 1. If you don't already know the answer is 'Yes', you DO NOT PROPOSE.

And Rule #2 (for stadium/event proposals): MAKE SURE SHE FARKING LIKES THE SPORT! Wife is a die-hard Yankees fan, so a stadium proposal made perfect sense. But if your girl (or guy) doesn't know a lick about the sport, they won't be into it.

She still jokes that I was the only person to actually get her to not pay attention to a Yankees game she was at. The entire game was a complete blur after the proposal.

The son of some friends recently had a surprise proposal with a group of family and friends waiting nearby for a party, but they'd been together for seven years, and the event was closing escrow on the house they were buying together. There were very strong clues she was going to say yes.

I'm so confused. Your girlfriend's husband proposed to you two weeks before she proposed to him?

Lots of guys have done gender reveals, usually by running around the field then getting tackled by security. The crowd always cheers.

I would think about divorcing my husband if he had people sing "Happy birthday" in a crowded restaurant. (OK not really, but I'd be super pissed.) I can't imagine why someone would think it's a good idea to propose on camera, in front of thousand of strangers unless the person you want to marry is a world class attention whore.

I guess I would cheer for that, too.  But if it was some dummy up there with his girl on the dugout lighting the stadium on fire while holding up a gender reveal sign, it might go differently.

it's possible that she hated baseball and probably didn't want to get proposed at a location like "minor league" stadium....Might've been better off if he proposed at a Taco Bell parking lot.

I proposed to my wife in front of friends. When we were all younger, about 20-30 of us would gather annually at a friend's family farm for a 4th of July weekend gathering. Wifey and I had been dating a bit over 8 years by the time I popped the question at the bonfire in front of everyone, and I already was well aware her answer would be yes.

I've had people tell me the same thing, that it was rude for me to propose to her in front of people, but she never got that memo and loved the proposal. She was so happy to have friends right there would she could celebrate with, and show off her new ring to.

There's really one hard and fast rule - you play to your audience of 1, the person you're wanting to marry. If it's something they're in to then great, if it's not then don't do it. If you don't actually know how he/she is going to receive how you want to pop the question then you you probably shouldn't be asking the question yet.

That's just ... strange that you want to hang it on her, and are creating a whole "she's low budget" story.  Maybe they'd been dating for a few months, and considered him just a farkbuddy.

Maybe it's strange I want to hang it all on him... but, the evidence does show that he was hoping to make a public spectacle out of what to my mind at least should be a decision to be made between two individuals.

Maybe we're both wrong.

I agree, she definitely dodged a bullet. Honestly, is there anything more white trash than proposing to someone in public, especially a sporting event?

I'd say she just avoided becoming the wife in "Kevin Can F**k Himself."

Like a lawyer, never ask a question unless you know the answer. My wife knew I was going to propose before I did, she just didn't know when (though I think she suspected). We had talked about it beforehand.

That said, I call BS.

Other users on Twitter wrote that they thought the proposal from the baseball game may have been fake. Green, who was at the Thursday game, told Insider that she believed the proposal may have been a stunt.

Along with the people here who are absolutely sure it was staged, could you be a little more detailed? Like why it would be staged? It's not a gimmick to get buts in seats, the people were already there. It's not something to generate buzz for a radio station, they already have their cushy gig at the ballpark. Seriously, there is just no scenario where a staged marriage proposal that ends in the woman running off and the guy running after here, is worth staging. It's not like they chased the guy down and built a reality show around him. The team is in exactly the same spot they were before the game, except with one more win or loss in the box. They didn't tease the event to get people to come to the game. Nothing has changed, and noting would change if she had accepted the proposal, at least nothing that would have seen any benefit from a stunt. Sure, she'd be engaged to be married, but that's all that would change. The stunt brings nothing to the table.

I just think it's farked up that some people will just instantly assume there's something wrong with a woman that doesn't say yes to marry a man (and vice versa, but that's like 5% of the former). We only have literally two facts to work off of:
1. A guy proposed to a woman
2. The woman was not on board

That's literally it. Now, from those facts the one thing we can say for sure is the guy screwed up. If you're asking and the answer isn't yes then you almost certainly screwed up. That's not the kind of question you ever ask without already knowing what the answer is going to be. Because if you don't know then you haven't talked about it with your partner, and you two aren't ready yet.

Other than that, we don't know. Could be they've been dating for 3 weeks and he's getting obsessed and just did something incredibly uncool. Could be they've been dating for 4 years and had only brought it up a little, and she got scared and panicked in the moment. Or she could have been leading him on, but really has no intention of having a long term relationship with him. Or she might be about to leave him.

We don't know. But when people instantly jump to "He dodged a bullet" with no actual facts to come to that conclusion with I think it says more about the speaker themselves than anything else.

My girlfriend and I have talked about marriage (been together 3 years).  Right now, the consensus is no, but neither one of us is going anywhere.  We both know how we feel about each other and would do anything for the other.  That being said, if she asked, I'd say yes.  Also, that failed proposal was completely staged.

Funny... I just searched "man proposes in public". I felt no need to inject race into the equation. And I got just what I was searching for, evidence that it's not only white people who propose in public. As a matter of fact, there were FAR more pics of non-white people.

So shove your race card up your ass.

mongbiohazard: He dodged a bullet


I'll explain.

Not every one has a successful marriage. I for one, married  3 times and each time was a disaster. I mention he dogged a bullet because if he did get married, no more BJ's, no more sex, he'll be tied down (ball and chain) and by not getting married to her, would probably had a better life.

But you know, its all speculation.

Maybe she doesn't want to marry him because he plays too much x-box and doesn't devote all he time to her?

Or maybe she hates that he always does the motorcycle throttle movement with his hand before he farts?

We'll never know, so it's fun to make up our own stories about it.

Trust me, I'm not losing any sleep over it.

so have fun with it...
