It seems like an amazing gesture on the surface, since some people really do try to propose in the most extravagant way possible. But it's really putting a ton of pressure on someone in a way that could be seen as manipulative.

Plus I've seen a decent number of people be turned down and humiliated in front of everyone. o-o Them videos go viral...

its all too concerned with what others will think for me. if someone were to propose to me like that and i loved them and wanted to marry them although i wouldn't really be impressed. i would say yes, if didn't i would say no if they felt humiliated then they care too much about what people who they don't even know think. but if they are doing that in the first place then they obviously value random peoples opinion too highly.

I find it puts people on the spot. They might not want to marry you but you just put them on the spot in public, in front of everyone. So chances of them declining are lower since they wont want to break your heart in front of 100+ people.

As long as there isn't a major public disturbance, I don't really mind; however, they arguably put an unfair amount of pressure on both parties. They go wrong so easily.

I have mixed feelings about them. I find it to be somewhat sweet, but then again manipulative.

On the one hand they're romantic, on the other I think they're rather cruel; it's not nice to be forced into a situation where, if you say 'no', tens if not hundreds of thousands of people witness it.

I think they're cute and all at first, and then I realize it's kinda ridiculous to try and show this off in front of a bunch of people. And then the poor person has no choice but to say yes, even if they don't want to. I guess it's ok to do if you both knew you wanted to get married and she likes doing things big...

I think something like a marriage proposal is something people should keep to themselves, I mean, it's a really special moment. I'd just keep it between me and my so. Just my two cents.

I think they're very cute and romantic. I love seeing proposals in public, but at the same time I feel bad for those being proposed to. It's a tad awkward to say no to something to public. Also, being someone who has anxiety, a public proposal would be my own personal hell. They're certainly not for everyone, but in general I do enjoy seeing them.

I'm a bitter person so if anything like that were to happen i would
1: tell them to get a room
2: wish they did it in private
I don't really know how to word this so I'll just say it. Sometimes i think people do it in public so the receiving party, usually the woman in a heterosexual relationship, accepts the proposal because people are looking/staring at her expecting her to say yes.

As much I think highly of it as a romantic, sweet, and definitely memorable, the feelings of the proposed should also be taken into consideration. I would always prefer something intimate but if the love of my life, who has not showed up yet, ever appears to have an infatuation for a public proposal, I of course would do it in such fashion.

I think it's ridiculous and it disgusts me that they'd put that amount of pressure on the other person to say yes that they'd do it in such a way. If I were ever proposed to like that I'd say no and break up with the person I was with.

I hate it. If I'm in a restaurant and I'm eating, it makes me sick and I cannot enjoy my food. These people have no respect for those of us who don't want to have to see their disgusting show of "affection".
