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 Group to ask for backup. The group responded with 16 pugs adorned with heart-shaped balloons, who happily pranced around the couple while he popped the question. Needless to say, she said “yes.” [People]

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 to prom on top of a gorgeous bridge in Florence, Italy. Let me repeat: his girlfriend. Like, the person who already had good reason to assume she would be his date to prom. Yankee Stadium also said seven kids so far this year have rented out the centerfield videoboard for $100 each to ask someone to prom; other (insane) kids are renting plane banners.  Keep reading »

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 as he left the store where he purchased the balloon, a gust of wind pulled the balloon from his hands and far, far out of reach. Hajji then spent two hours in his car trying to chase and find the balloon, ultimately failing. His bride to be refused to speak to him until she got a new ring. Read more…

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 a lucky couple that one of the most romantic moments of their lives was captured like this. [Laughing Squid]

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. Sixty friends, a choreographed dance, six marching band uniforms, four laptops, and one bended knee later, and (spoiler alert!) she said yes. Dramatic proposals don’t usually get to me, but I definitely teared up by the end of this. So sweet. [Vimeo]

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 come to be? Keep reading »

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 also turned out to be the most irritating of bridezillas. A proposal is just a moment and sometimes moments don’t go as planned. The point is the lifelong commitment you’re entering into, right? But what do I know, I’ve never been in a proposal situation. How about you? Were you satisfied with the way your proposal went?

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 took the pressure off. She used reverse psychology on me, and it worked! … They swore I was the guy who would never, and it feels awesome.”

Bret Michaels talks about finally proposing to Kristi Gibson, his on-and-off girlfriend for the past 16 years and the mother of his children, on the balcony of their house, in the season finale of “Bret Michaels: Life As I Know It.” I guess this means no more seasons of “Rock of Love”?

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. But there is one problem. My mother and much of my family is extremely conservative and this would be qualified as “living in sin.” I see nothing wrong with my choice as it makes me happy, it’s a healthy relationship, etc., but I fear I would cause a large rift in the relationship with my mother, with whom I’m very close, if she knew or found out. But keeping it a secret is causing a problem in my relationship with my boyfriend and I know he is hurt by it. I feel like I need to do something, but I fear destroying a relationship with my family. Any advice on what to do? — Live-in Love
