Please don't do this

Today, I took my girlfriend of five and a half years to family dinner at a restaurant. After we all had finished dessert, I got down on one knee, pulled out my great grandmother's ring and proposed. The entire restaurant was dead silent. She looked around and then slowly walked out. FML

got to say that's pretty said on the OPs part. did he think just because his whole family was there she just had to say yes. way to prove you are a rapist at heart.

your now EX girlfriend is a mean bitch... 5 years and she walks out on you because you propposed?!? I bet she's screwing someone else. Sorry man.

I guess you seriously mis-read your girlfriend. It sounds like she either doesn't at all have marriage on her mind or she is a very private person who didn't want to be proposed to in front of your family and a bunch of strangers (which, after 5 1/2 years of dating, you should have known).

my question is what the hells wrong with that bitch that she wasted five years of his life...AND hers. maybe she used him as a security blanket. but you'd think five years in you would have talked about that shit by now, just wow

Justin bieber is my idol! everytime I listen to him he cheers me up :D
but fyl that must be a terrible thing to go through. maybe she was just shy since the restaurant was quiet.

Justin bieber sounds gay
why I hate most pop songs
1. record voice for 30 seconds
2. alter voice digitally
3. add beats
4. repeat recording 3-4 times
and you have a pop song
takes NO skill

Can someone please explain to me why it's so terrible and he deserves it for waiting 5 years to propose? I mean, I know I personally wouldn't mind waiting. I figure, what's the rush? If two people plan on spending their lives together, why do they need to hurry into the official married status? Also, like this FML for example, wouldn't it be better to know the relationship didn't work out five years in verses realizing it doesn't work out three years into marriage?

i feel so bad for you this is one reason i gave up on dating a lot of girls will just treat you like shit when you try to show you care and they dont care they only care about themselves

seanreddog, she obviously wanted to be with him two years in because she was still with him at 5 1/2 years. You still cannot expect today's reaction with that of her would-be reaction 3 1/2 years ago. Whether she accepted the proposal or not isn't really the issue I'm trying to bring up. I just wanted to know why 5 years is too long without having proposed to a partner already.

Last week, I dreamed I shot Justin Beiber. With a Carcano rifle, for those of you who would like to know.
Turns out, my wife dreamt of torturing him on the same night.

You can see why we're married.

The problem is that most of these words are not used properly. Otherwise, context in combination with the few words I do know would allow me to determine the meaning.

For instance, if I said, "The perambulation of the pedal extremity is being impeded by the insertion of a foreign botanical offshoot," many of you will understand it, even if "perambulation" and "botanical" disorient you.

Also, he's using colloquial or poetic meanings for some of the words. Such as thixotropic, which refers to the property exhibited by certain gels of becoming liquid when stirred or shaken.
How is a woman thixotropic? Well, it is a metaphorical meaning to a word that very few people know, thus making his -- poem, nearly indecipherable by the common mlayman.

Yeah. When my friend was rejected he bece so depressed that he covered himself in butter and walked into the nearest Golden Corral. Police said that he was ripped the shreds and eaten by fat people before he had a chance to scream.

139, is it so terrible to want to express the amount of love and trust it takes to marry a person in front of your family? Who cares that it was in front of a restaurant full of people? Something tells me it would have happened even if was done in private. My sympathies OP, hope everything works out....

Oh, that explains the no clapping. I was wondering why a resraunt wouldn't clap for a proposal but now its clear that they are close minded jerks. Sucks about being rejected though :( there better be a good reason

this seems like it could be a string of fmls. guy took his girlfriend to walmart mcdonalds to buy condoms. then he proposed at mcdonalds. then she walked out. they all connect.
