Finally, A Proposal Video Actually Worth Swooning Over!

Molly McGinnis and Kevin Morgan had been together for seven years when Kevin popped the question on their anniversary. Proposals that go viral are usually of the embarrassingpublic, overkill variety, so this intimate exchange is such a breath of fresh air! Is this adorable or what?

Guy Stages An Entire Faux Wedding To Propose To His Girlfriend

I still feel like 99 percent of public proposals are awkward and self-centered, but this one gets a pass for all the effort that went into it. Wedding planner Jack has seen thousands of nuptials play out over the years, making him pretty much on expert on all things romance. When it came time to…

Dude Proposes To His Girlfriend With 1,001 Hot Dogs

As a rule, I am not a fan of over-the-top public proposals, but I might have to let this one slide. A man in China proposed to his girlfriend with one hot dog for each day they’ve been together. All 1,001 hot dogs were supplied by a local restaurant, and he even managed to spell…

This Ring Box Camera Records The Reaction To Your Proposal

For a senior engineering project, a team of students at Hope College in Michigan created an engagement ring box with a tiny camera in it for filming proposals.

Guy Proposes With “I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)” Music Video That He Filmed Over 4 Years Of Dating

Jack Hyer didn’t get the first memo, or the second memo, that public proposals are showoff-y and cringe-inducing for everyone around you. But I’ll forgive Jack, because he’s been traveling a lot these past four years. Twenty-six countries, in fact. In every new place, Jack filmed bits of himself singing the karaoke jam “I’m Gonna…

Most Romantic Man In The World Proposes To His Girlfriend With The Help Of 16 Pugs

We’ve been kinda down on public marriage proposals recently, but turns out there is one major exception: when 16 pugs are involved. A London man wanted to propose to his girlfriend on a recent trip to New York City, but he didn’t want to go it alone, so he contacted the NYC Pug Meetup Grou…

No, Just No: Teens Now “Proposing” For Prom

The New York Post, which, granted, pulls complete bullshit out of their ass, reports on the apparent trend of ever-more-elaborate “prom proposals.” One kid asked his date over the school PA system, another brought a message of cupcakes to the classroom spelling out “P R O M ?”,  and yet another guy asked his girlfriend…

The 7 Dumbest Marriage Proposals Of All Time

Your engagement story is supposed to make people swoon, not cringe. But these real people who really screwed up obviously didn’t get that memo…

1. Hot Air Balloon Fail: London floor-fitter Lefkos Hajji concealed a $10,000 engagement ring inside a helium balloon, thinking she’d pop the balloon — and he’d pop the question. But a…

Photographer Secretly Snaps Marriage Proposal In Park

If you want advice on how to propose, gentlemen, this is how to do it: a lovely walk at twilight (nature’s perfect lighting!), solemnly down on one knee, in private. The fact that a photographer just happened to secretly spot the proposal in an Austin, Texas, park just makes it all the more beautiful. What…

Watch The First Live Lip-Dub Marriage Proposal!

Isaac told his girlfriend to meet him at his parents’ house for dinner. When she arrived, she was instructed to take a seat in the back of an open SUV and put on a pair of headphones.

Where Did Public Proposals Come From?

Out of all the women who got engaged last year and posted themselves on TheKnot.com, 43 percent received a public proposal, ranging from the guy who filmed a movie trailer to the one who painted a mural in New York’s East Village popping the questions. This led Slate.com to wonder: how did this whole concept…

Did You Like Your Proposal?

According to The Knot, one out of four women surveyed were not satisfied with the way their S.O. proposed to them. Complaints about their proposals included that it wasn’t romantic or original enough, that it was too over-the-top, or that the dude came to the party sans ring. I would predict that these 25 percent…

The Most Unromantic Marriage Proposal I Can Think Of

This dude really outdid himself with this Facebook marriage proposal. His mother must be so proud. What’s next? A flair ring posted on her wall? If someone proposed to me that way, I would immediately unfriend them. But Breeze seems to dig it. Who names their kid Breeze by the way? [BuzzFeed]…

Bret Michaels “Feels Awesome” About Getting Engaged

“In my mind, it wasn’t supposed to happen like that — I wanted it to be a little more like the movies, where the white horse gallops up and all that stuff. But when Kristi said, ‘I don’t need this ring, I don’t need the piece of paper, I love you no matter what,’ she…

Dear Wendy: “My Family Thinks I’m Living In Sin”

I am a 23-year-old, self-supporting college grad and my boyfriend and I have lived together for four months. We love each other very much, are happy together and everything is going great.

Seth Rogen Proposed While His Girlfriend Was Almost Naked

“She was in our closet, changing, and she was literally only in her underpants. I’d already kind of started, and I was like ‘Oh man, her boobs are out! That’s not part of the plan!’ I didn’t picture it like this, and I know she didn’t picture it like this. No little girl is like…

5 Celebrity “Just Kidding” Marriage Fake-Outs

Over the weekend, Eddie Cibrian tweeted a very confusing photo. It showed him, on bended knee, holding LeAnn Rimes’ hand, as she used her free hand to cover her mouth in excitement. The whole tableau took place before a buggy labeled “White Chapel Asylum,” and the words, “I couldn’t resist,” accompanied the image. The photo…
