The Public Proposal That Failed
Marriage proposals can be awesome. But some can be downright foolish, and lack real thought. Or just show lack of good judgment. Someone sent me this video, of a dude proposing to his girl on the stage of a PACKED nightclub. Anddddd she said NAWL! Watch below:
That kinda hurt my heart to watch. I am embarrassed for dude because his #selfofsteam was dropkicked through the goalposts of life. But I don’t feel sorry for him at all. Here’s why.
If you’re going to propose to someone publicly, you need to be sure they’re going to say yes. This means y’all have had convos about marriage and she might know that someday in the near future, you plan on asking for her hand.
I think folks who propose to their girlfriends in super public places, like baseball parks on big screens, are doing it less because it’s what she wants and more because she might be more likely to say yes, since the whole world is watching.
NO SIR! Not THAT girl. And I commend her for it.
In fact, he should have read her face! The way ol’ girl was looking at him before he even got on one knee was nothing nice. Her face was trying to nicely say “This mufucka here…” But alas, he’s as oblivious to it as he is to the fact that his lining does the most. He didn’t see the “no” coming. He prolly thought she was gon swoon, start crying and mumble teary “yesses.”
Then when he proposed to her, Homegirl shook her head “No” and tried to close the ring box. And he still stayed on his janky knee begging to see if she’d change her mind. WOMP! They shoulda been playing a Keith Sweat song at that moment (cuz that was one begging negro).
And at like 2:50, you can read her lips saying something like “You can’t fix it like this.” So this fool is actually proposing to rectify some dumb sh*t he did? LAWD!!! Clearly that ring
wasn’t big enough couldn’t fix it. I hope he kept that receipt.
Besides, there is nothing remotely romantic about being proposed to in a sauna with a DJ, in front of 200 people you don’t know. The club is all noisy, and she probably had to concentrate real hard to even hear what he was saying. HOW IS THAT ROMANTIC???
Yeah, that dude’s #selfofsteam is somewhere just wading in the water. He shoulda been sure before he did it so publicly and got humiliated.
And I ain’t e’em got time to talk about the Mini Ruben Studdard who started off by serenading the girl. He had no purpose. And he needs to be singing “Sorry 2011” for the rejected dude. Nor do I got time for the people in the crowd yelling for her to say yes. I’m sure the minute he got off that stage… O____o
Chile… I kinda laughed though. SMH.
Did you cringe or laugh at this video? Are you a fan of public proposals? Fellas, what would you do if this happened to you?
