A funny thing is I used to always think that any woman who said no to one of these public type proposals had to be a horrible skank and the guy should be fortunate she said no. I mean why say no and embarrass your guy when the least you could do is say yes at the event and tell him no later in private?
After reading this I now think differently. If the guy is going to be dumb enough to propose in public then he deserves his “no” in public. And as far as her embarrassing him by saying no in public, well he started it when he embarrassed her by publicly asking her to marry him.
