It may seem awful, but i actually have no sympathy for these men. You can’t ask someone a life changing question in public like that with so much pressure on someone. Everyone constantly feels so bad for the men, but why aren’t we thinking about the women? Its humiliating for them too and they probably beat themselves up afterwards for not being able to react, not to mention the awful rap from society afterwards. I think public proposals are inly okay if you talk to your partner about it first and make sure its okay to make sure neither of you walk away humiliated.
