Proposing marriage in front of a crowd at a sporting event or concert is a big deal. It must take one brave soul! The potential public humiliation that comes with a "no" response is too much of a risk if you ask me. I mean, can imagine? Talk about an awkward moment.

But, hey, if you're feeling adventurous, proposing in public can be a real rush. The adrenaline of being in front of so many people, the excitement of the event, and the fear of rejection all combine to make for a truly unforgettable experience. It's like bungee jumping, but with more emotional risk.

Woman Says "No" During Marriage Proposal at NBA Game

I'm a skeptic when I see these uncomfortable must-watch viral videos. Every time I see a "no" response like in the vid above I think to myself, "this was totally set up." I mean, think about it. Wouldn't you rather say yes and that moment and then drop the bomb on the car ride home?

You know, I don't think I'm ready yet. I only said yes because we were in front of thousands of people and I didn't want to look mean. - Random proposee

If you decide to go for it, just remember that the payoff can be huge. Hearing that "yes" can make all the embarrassment and anxiety worth it. And think of all the high-fives you'll get from the crowd if it goes well! And, heck, you might even become a viral sensation for a good reason.
