There's always a risk involved in a marriage proposal — she (or he) could say no! But a person heightens that risk when he decides on a public proposal. Yesterday on Australian national television, a man surprised his girlfriend of three years and proposed to her on stage. Sweet huh? Not really, considering that she ran off stage crying! Maybe this is why men are as afraid of proposing marriage as they are of sharks.
This clip, if it wasn't staged, is so heartbreaking! What would you do if you were the girlfriend? Say yes and dump him later (and in private), or turn him down in front of everyone?
