A marriage proposal is always exciting and nerve-wracking for both parties, especially if the proposal is public. Some people prefer to share this moment with just their significant other, while others want to go all out and let the whole world know about the news. Public proposals are slowly becoming more of a trend, but that doesn’t mean they always go well.

Proposals Are Getting Out of Hand

A professional psychologist says that a public proposal is something that can ruin the intimacy of this special moment and ruin the whole experience for the other person. It can lead to potential problems for the couple and gives the impression that people’s comments and opinions are more important than the relationship itself.

Recently, an influencer known as Valerio proposed to his girlfriend in Rome while strangers were watching and taking pictures of their special moment. However, you don’t need to speak Italian to understand the girl’s reaction; she rejected the proposal. One of the comments even translated her words for us, explaining that she said, “I was not expecting this! I’m not ready… That’s why we came to Rome?”

A Marriage Proposal Gone Wrong

Even with this turn of events Valerio still decided to post the video, joking that Cartier has a 30-day return policy. It was uploaded on Christmas Eve and had over 14 million views. Of course, the comment section did not disappoint. One viewer said they would accept the proposal in public and speak to their partner later on and reject it in private.

Others defended the girl by saying that Valerio should have known that his girlfriend would feel uncomfortable being watched by hundreds of people. Another comment stated that the two were apparently on different love levels and should break up. Someone even decided to share their personal story of saying yes at the top of the London Eye and then breaking up with their partner seven months later.
