Hitched: Your Elaborately Planned Public Marriage Proposal Is Awkward For Everyone

If you are currently in the process of planning an elaborate and public marriage proposal to your intended, please consider not doing that, not doing that even for a minute, and instead consider just stopping everything you had planned and not ever doing that, and even if you still want to do it a little…

It’s Time To Cry: Lesbian Couple Gets Engaged During Hockey Halftime

I'm a sucker for proposal videos, but this one is a two four Kleenex affair. On Saturday night, a woman named Christina proposed to her girlfriend Alicia during halftime at a Senators/Maple Leafs game while cheesy music plays in the background. If we can forget for a moment that public proposals are horrifying, this one is actually…

Dear Wendy: “It’s Been Five Years And My Boyfriend Still Won’t Propose!”

I’m a 27-year-old female, and I’ve been with my 31 year old boyfriend for over five years now. We have made a happy and loving life together, including sharing a home, sharing our finances, being closely involved with each other’s families, and we even have two cats and a puppy together. About a year ago…

“Mobbed” Thinks This Is Romance?

According to the Howie Mandel-helmed show "Mobbed," women just love elaborately choreographed proposals, involving hundreds of singers and dancers, and complex ruses. This particular proposal, though, doesn't strike me as romantic--AT ALL. Nope. It just seems incredibly emotionally manipulative and messed up. Watch, as this poor woman thinks her boyfriend's been cheating on her, and…

Man Proposes On “Ellen” Show — And Gets Shot Down

A guy shows up on "Ellen" to propose to his longterm girlfriend -- only the proposal doesn't go the way he, the audience, or host Ellen Degeneres thinks it will. This might be the most twisted thing we've ever seen on daytime television. The secondhand embarrassment on this is through the roof. [Complex]…

Hitched: Getting Engaged Without A Ring

When you get drunk with your boyfriend at the lake and decide to get engaged while under the influence of a decent-sized bottle of Jim Beam, you don't exactly get the whole kneel-down, velvet-box proposal. No, what you get is peeling your face off a mattress the next morning and wondering where your pant…

Man Proposes To Girlfriend Via Mural (Updated With An Awesome Time-Lapse Video!)

Around the corner from my apartment, there's a wall that is frequently reserved by graffiti artists for commissioned murals. Sometimes those murals are hideous, often they're merely "meh," and occasionally they are truly beautiful. Such is the case with the mural currently occupying the space. Jeff Gurwin, 28, proposed to his girlfriend, Caitlin Fitzsimons, 27,…

A Movie Proposal, Rated PG

Oh look, it's another totally adorable movie trailer proposal. Todd Cavanaugh wanted to propose to his girlfriend Elizabeth Baldanza (Miss New York 2007), so he enlisted a film production crew to make a totally original movie trailer. Man, these guys are making regular old proposals look so lame. [Urlesque]…

Girl Talk: There (Probably) Won’t Be A Proposal This Christmas

A few weeks ago my boyfriend and I were doing laundry at his parents' house when I overheard him talking to his mom about his Christmas present for me. Neither, it seemed, realized how easily noise traveled from the kitchen through the dining room to the living room. I could only pick up a few…

A Muppet Marriage Proposal

As a huge Muppets fan, I think this proposal video is just about the most romantic thing I've ever seen, besides when Piggy marries Kermit in "Muppets Take Manahttan." This guy ordered custom Muppets that resembled him and his girlfriend for this proposal. Of course she said yes, but if she hadn't, I would have…

Woman Struck By Lightning Moments Before Proposal

The cruel hand of fate has really had it out for matrimony this week. The other day we posted a story about a couple who married in the E.R. after a tragic crash, and this is another even more tragic story. Bethany Lott and her boyfriend Richard Butler were both excited for their hike…

And This Is Why Jumbotron Engagements Are A Gigantic Don’t

So, some poor schmuck decided to propose to his girlfriend during the New York Rangers game on Valentine's Day, and the entire scene was broadcast on the Jumbotron. Unforch, it appears that instead of saying "yes," she went to go puke up cheese fries in the bathroom. Romance FAIL.

A Marriage Proposal For Books

Since I already posted an epic save-the-date video today, I thought it fitting to share an epic marriage proposal story to carry on the theme. Actually, this happens to be two stories in one. The guy, you see, a professional illustrator, spent eight months searching for the perfect engagement ring (a "100…

Forecast, Good: A Weather Channel Marriage Proposal

Hey, check it out — something exciting actually happened on the Weather Channel this week. A man interrupted his weather-forecaster girlfriend to propose to her live on-air. So cute! And yet, kind of awkward, too! I love how when the forecaster sees her boyfriend walk in front of the camera, she's all, "Oh, hi," instead…

How To Propose In Public So It Doesn’t Suck

Boys, if you're going to propose "in public," there's a couple things you want to stay away from. Jumbotrons. Clowns. Twitter. Oh, for the love of all things holy, don't propose over Twitter. Just take your romance 2.0 cues from this guy, Justin, who proposed to his longtime girlfriend, Marissa, over Tumblr and…
