The Implication of a Public Proposal


Actually, I feel public proposal is a public manipulation strategy most a times by the guy: He orders the setting perfectly, sets up the lady against the camera, by and large the world, then leaves her to make a life changing decision within split seconds with people screaming and cheering on her to accept the ring. How has the lady been treated during the relationship? How prepared is the guy for the wedding? How prepared is he for marriage? The onlooking crowd “no send”, they just don’t care that the lady understands the situation and possible after-effects more than everyone present, to them, the lady must accept or she gets the blame.

Women are always going to be blamed if the engagement cast, but, the men should do better.

As a guy, your actions and words must command respect and responsibility towards your lady, you must motivate her towards seeing that you are indeed ready to take complete responsibility for her after that 💍 is placed on her finger. She should at least see it in you that it is just a matter of months before you take her home. Placing the ring should be the least of your worries but the ladies often love the public show anyway!

A responsible guy should at least try talking to his lady about the possibility of a public engagement someday. Sample her opinion on how she’d react in that case. “If her body language no dey encouraging and you still proceed later, na your self you just dey hungry to go disgrace.”

  1. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with public proposal except if the duo didn’t date. (we all know it’s practically Impossible to see someone on first date and propose). As at the time they were dating, it’s best the couple get to know each other and also have plans on getting married before the proposal. But you see that surprised proposal?? E make sense.

    Why not talk about ladies proposing to men? Is It against our culture?

    1. Hahahahhaha about dating or not, I tink it’s crystal clear that in this days we can actually have people dating without loving each other, may b one party is in love while the other has a different interest in the relationship…I just feel you guys should discuss the possibility of ending up together and observe the partners response to that, at least that should give you hint enough


  2. Public proposals are often a pleasant surprise for women who expect it and a lot of pressure for women who are don’t expect it. There’s no way you can reject a man n a public proposal and look like a good person to the public.

  3. Personally, I think public engagements are a bad idea of the couple have never discussed getting married before. There are some women who like attention and would prefer for a man to go down on one knee in a crowded area. But delusions usually come back around to bite everyone in the end. At any rate, the crowd remains entertained.

    1. Yeah me too but I don’t have a problem with that though as I would prefer a public proposal ☺️☺️but the only problem and advice I also hold is that partners should atleast discuss the possibility of marriage btw them and observe the partners proposal. At least it should be something she or he is expecting

      Am so glad you stopped by and for your awesome contribution 😊💯✨

      1. Had someone ask me if it would be okay to propose at the airport. I was firmly against it because I felt he wanted it to go viral online. Super narcissist. Elsewhere, I had someone propose in during a TV interview but he spoke in code so only I could understand. I thought that was fun. Future me is still UNMARRIED so we’ll see who wins in the end.
