I’ll never forget the day I proposed to my wife. I’ll also never forget asking permission from her father to do the deed. And while I planned that day to a tee; probably so much so that the woman knew I was going to pop the question, I’m pretty sure that at no point did I think she was going to say no.
And if she had, I can tell I’d have been awfully stunned. And it’s that tiny chance of being stunned that should prevent any guy from moronically proposing in a public place and being embarrassed.
I mean either know the girl is going to say yes or don’t bother guys. Here are five examples of guys who really should have known better.
UCLA Failed Proposal
You know how some of these things are hoaxes when set up at an athletic stadium? We’re 99% sure this one is no hoax. It’s just incredibly awful. Part of me feels bad for the guy and the other part is like “totally deserved it.”
The Food Court Proposal Gone Bad
WOW. Another one. I just don’t know what to say to these things. As a man who knelt down and knew he was going to get a yes I can possibly imagine this scenario in real life.
Another Rejected at a Basketball Game
This one was three years ago. If you are going to propose, you better make sure it’s going to happen before embarrassing both parties involved. Especially when you’re at mid court. I feel this one was a fake.
Why is it Always Basketball Games?
Well I guess it’s fitting that it was at a Wizards game.
This is Just Too Awkward
Dead silence and a couple of “awwws.” I mean I think by now you’re getting the point. If you’re going to propose you better be damned sure the girl is going to say yes. I mean how the hell can you not know this? Wow.
Even More Uncoachable Stuff
