Before making a suggestion to the public, ask yourself why you do that.
Does it increase the joy and happiness for your partner or could it steal the thunder? Do you enjoy being in the spotlight, or do you prefer quieter moments together? Will they say yes, or will they be attacked by strangers?
If one of your answers is more about you than your partner, stop the flash mob and get the jumbotron.
The debate on the public marriage proposal – is it harmless and sweet or narcissistic and manipulative? – Appear almost every time someone else becomes viral. Last weekend, a man suggested to his girlfriend that was about to run the New York City Marathon. According to CBS News, Dennis Galvin said he jumped over a barrier to the marathon and asked his girlfriend Kaitlyn Curran to marry him.
CBS said it was the first time Curran ran a marathon. She had been training for a year and was still 10 miles ahead when Galvin interrupted her to answer the question.
She said yes, cried (tears of joy or anger?), Hugged him – and kept running. In the video material she looks happy. But could not he have waited? Let the woman have her moment – every 4 hours and 24 minutes she worked so hard for – without pulling her to give you 30 seconds of fame.
On Twitter, the readers expressed their thoughts for and against the proposal.
The couple has not yet answered publicly. BuMost people prefer a private offer – and most are made that way. In a Knot article in which 5 big proposals were made, the proposal to the public was a part of it. In a survey of 19,000 couples, the wedding website found that most women said they made suggestions in public or in front of friends and family members.
"Once you ask and, hopefully, be accepted, you both want to linger in your own little bubble of love for a while – not possible when colleagues, cousins, or utter strangers come to your faces to compliment you" on the story the knot that accompanied the survey.
There is no private love bubble in the middle of a marathon course – especially when a person has to travel 10 miles again.
So cancel your engagement or cancel your wedding in the right way
