I told my sister (who moved in with her bf after 6 months of dating) that my bf of 3 years and I were thinking of taking the next step, and she looked at me like I had grown another head.
Anyways, nobody I know is into the idea of public proposals. It ruins the intimacy of the moment and it basically forces the girl to say yes when she really truly might not to be ready to.
Be kind to others, you never know when you might need some kindness in return. Unless of course, you drive a death banana, then anything goes
A colleague I shared an office with about 4 years ago got himself into a crazy state of stress based on the amount of agro he got from his GF, her sister and all of their friends about when he was going to propose, how he was going to propose and putting a lot of pressure on him. In the end the stupid bint would have been better off keeping quiet about it because the amount of bitching she and her friends did put back the porposal by a good year while he waited for a break in the pressure so that it didn't look like the proposal came on the back of a round of give-him-shit-until-he-proposes.
