    Wow that was the worst cheer performance I've seen. I could've done that. And yes, I would murder my boyfriend if he ever did that. I am sorry William, I am the ultimate grinch.

    If you don't want that it would pretty much the most humiliating thing.

    i can't watch the video atm but i'm guessing it was public.

    whenever i see public proposals i wonder if they only said yes because everybody was watching and they were scared lol.

    ingenious; he pretty much forced her to say yes.

    I can't even bring myself to watch it... I hate marriage proposals even more than I hate weddings. They're so awkward and dramatic, and the person being asked is put on the spot so much. Amazingly there was actually one on Grey's Anatomy that I kind of liked though (the only one in the history of all marriage proposals I've ever seen, and it's not even real), but only because of the very beginning just about gives her a heart attack and then she's cracking up through the whole thing.

    I would like it. A lot. I'm a silly romantic. I'm married to a ISTP (not sure of his socionics type) and seeing him do something like this would really show me how much he loves me because it would be so out of his comfort zone. And it took him 5 years to get up the nerve to finally propose, so my answer was of course yes, no worries there, no pressure to say yes.

    I think it's one of the best marriage proposal I've seen. What do you think?

    I would not like that to happen to me at all. It would make me very, very, very uncomfortable.

    I agree with everything you all wrote. Then I watched the video. You know what? I did not see her feel forced. She is a cheer leader so A. she likes attention in the first place, and B. All her girls were in on it so she probably felt supported and validated by her people. It really was pretty festive, I watched it with the sound turned off, I can see that girl being overwhelmed with amazement. Sometimes grand gestures are okay cause life can be pretty miserable. For some people sharing their love with the world only helps to bolster how they feel for each other so I say by all means go for gold.

    Having said all that, if it was me, and it wouldn't be me cause I wouldn't be a cheerleader, but if it was, I would have wanted to feel married to the guy basically well before a proposal came along. I don't really believe in marriage anyway, for my own reasons, so I never really understood the hype.

    If you are LSE William, then your Fe Role function, with all it's awkwardness and naivete is loud and clear. When the mascots came running out Fe Role was my first thought.

    It's xLE's that have a Fe HA. LSE's have a Fe Role and Fi dual seeking.

    can you imagine someone setting up that whole dance-along thing to propose to themselves or announce stuff about themselves? that'd be hilarious and unexpected..and so anticlimatic. no? I'd probably shed a tear for that.

    Hey thanks Joy that's what I meant. Should have double checked the wiki.

    Aww, it wasn't so bad; it seemed it was very her and very him. Now, it wouldn't have worked for me, but seeing that they enjoyed it was probably the most important thing.

    Hopefully the marriage lasts beyond the proposal, though...hopefully they aren't expecting that every day in their married life will be like that proposal, or sadly it won't last.

    I feel like these huge proposals are just ridiculous. More than half of all marriages fail, marriage sucks. If I ever were to get married, I'd prefer he ask me at home after we've already discussed it. I would be so pissed if he made a spectacle out of it. UGH.

    The giant transformer is Mega-cool (geddit?!).

    But I wonder what's going to happen to it once she says yes (or no)? I wonder if someone in the US would buy it as a collector's item.

    Unlike other public gagfests, I think this kind of thing actually requires some spine and courage.

    And I'd rather watch a whole hour of creative marriage proposals than some stupid reality show or staged drama full of pretense and bullshit.

    Someone who really knows and loves you wouldn't do that to you. Well, unless the discomfort is very temporary and you'll love them forever for it. It's something they need to assess carefully.

    I laugh at marriage proposals. I suppose that, by the time you feel comfortable enough with someone to get married, there is no need for so much fuss. Simply:

    Person 1) "Hey, I was thinking that we should marry...".
    Person 2) "Sure, sounds good.".
