Hi mylotters! dont you think it will be quite embarassing when you receive a public marriage proposal. I faced such kinda situation in early days of my masters. I dont know what to speak out and say. i was really shocked to hear that and it was quite embarassing me. I just smiled and controlled my anger as i have to get along with the guy for 8 more months of my study.I love to keep things private.Huh.. how do you react when you face such kinda situation?

I think it would actually be kind of sweet to be proposed in public because it shows that your significant other wants to show others how much he/she really cares about you by doing it in public. I would probably be embarrassed though because it's so public but I would've thought that the gesture was very sweet and romantic. I would be shocked too at that moment and I'd probably be speechless because being proposed to is a very huge deal. I think that if I was in your situation and he proposed to me, my reaction would depend on how I feel about him. If I love him, then I would probably say yes, but if I was still deciding my true feelings for him, then I would definitely be embarrassed because I don't want to say yes, yet I don't want to say no. If it's the second situation, I would probably whisper to him quietly and tell him that I want to think about it and maybe give him a hug if there's a lot of people looking. I would definitely give hima chance and at the very least consider it. I know what you mean by keeping things private, but I do consider his gesture to be very sweet and romantic, though that's just me. I don't know if I would be angry though. I guess it really depends on the situation for me, though I kind of doubt that I would be angry. I would just feel completely overwhelmed and shocked.

Well said. but the issue is i have just known him since 2 months thats it. So i cant say yes and ofcourse cant say no too. I was impressed with his concern towards my friends. but wen he proposed it ws quite embarassing me.Well we aint sure about future too who knws the feeling may have cm out of infatuation so its better to b quiet than reacting in a vulgar way. SO i just maintained silence.

hahahahaha i would be embarassed as well. I warned my boyfriend to not embarass me in front of people like that if he wants to propose me one day. Otherwise, I will refuse the wedding and tell him to ask again in a more appropriate place.

Hi dolly! I would also feel embarassed if I happen to receive such proposal publicly by a stranger. One should understand that it is not good to throw such proposal to others, without going into his/her details or without talking to his/her family.
