  • i think private would be better cause the other side won't have any pressure deciding and actually live that moment. it can be in a public place tho just not circled by 50 people looking..

  • Depends. A public event is more romantic but a huge risk. I've seen a guy refused once it was brutal

  • Private for 2 reasons, 1) if they refuse you don't really want it public, 2) Nobody cares! LOL Like, the only time public is ok is if it's in front of family/friends, otherwise people care about themselves and their lives, they don't care about someone proposing.

  • Private. I'm sure some people see the public vulnerability as romantic but I don't want anyone sharing that moment but me and the one I propose to. I don't even understand those that hire a photographer to capture the proposal - having a something to remember it by is great and all, but not having people around makes that moment that much better.

  • Mine was pretty private. Although her best friend was pissed that I didn’t tell her about it. she wanted to hide in the bushes and take pictures.

  • Private. It should be intimate and romantic, not a public display because a man or woman wants attention from strangers.

  • I would hate it if it was in a public setting honestly lol, if there were people watching that is. Imaging all the pressure you’d feel while you’re debating your response. I also feel like it should be private because it’s a moment you share w/ you and your s. o. Either way I would be happy, but the public proposal is very not my thing and haha I hope my future s/o won’t do that lel

  • Private.

    I dislike big showy displays in public. I'd prefer a proposal to be one-on-one. Not in front of anyone else. It's our private moment. I don't want to share that with anyone other than the guy I'm marrying

  • I think that it should be discussed beforehand to an extent. Some people aren't interested in marriage or have concerns and I think that these things should be communicated. That way both parties are on the same page. I think it would be nice to celebrate with family & friends but you should make sure there's something to celebrate before you completely ambush your S. O. in front of the people that are closest to them.

  • Totally depends on the woman!
    I hate the idea of being proposed to in public; i believe that it should be a centimental moment between the two of you, and maybe close friends. But i know many women who want the whole world to see it happen

  • I think a private moment would be best, for myself i don't like a lot of attention on me in the first place. Honestly when i think about it if i was with someone and they proposed i think if we were simply doing something that we always do, for instance if we were just chilling and watching a movie and he came out and asked i would love it.

  • Depends on the couple but for me, I'd prefer private. I think making a big public spectacle takes out the sincerity and cheapens the moment, kinda makes it about the other people rather than the couple

  • I personally would want a private proposal. Hopefully at that point my partner would know that my anxiety would be through the roof if it was public.

  • For me, I think it should be private. If it was public, I'd feel like I'd be pressured to say "yes." And I don't like being the center of attention.
