It's actually nicer to OP to not make a scene and humiliate him (and also to not be boood by the crowd). Public proposals are always awkward....

48- pleasing the crowd and sexually pleasing others is completely different. You're brilliant, Holmes. Jackwad.

12- i agree, it would have only ended up on some proposal video fail compilation on youtube. much better to let him down in private. however, the way she said it was atrocious! she could have at least sounded sorry about it!

Am I the only one that remembers the FML where someone's boyfriend of three days proposed in a mall, and when she said no, people threw food at her? No one wants to be perceived as an asshole, even by strangers. I don't blame OP's girlfriend for not wanting to be the bad guy in a public place.

Also, OP, I am sorry this happened to you. I imagine it was heart wrenching. I hope you forgive your girlfriend for the lie, and maybe one day she'll be ready.

Well atleast she did it respectively right? I mean if she had given him a flat out no (in front of the crowd), that would be very embarrassing.

#4 & #54 have a point. But since none of know how OP's gf is like, we are just left thinking our own thoughts.

I think you need to understand that this FML was written from the point of view of OP and not his gf, therefore the FML May be slightly biased. I really do believe OP's gf meant to save him embarrassment.

#93 - killed him emotionally? I think that is an overstatement. A person who's been bullied their whole life is emotionally dead. Someone who got their proposal refused and posted on FML, not so much.

You probably should have had the marriage discussion before buying the ring and planning a public proposal. Sorry, OP.

"Not cool?" So she should have said nothing and gone all the way even though she doesn't want to marry him...? She's not the one at fault here. In fact, she handled this as gracefully as she could under the circumstances.

32, I disagree with the last part that u said. She should've said that she only said yes in order to save him from embarrassment instead of telling him that she didn't want to disappoint the crowd. OP is obviously gonna be going through enough emotional distress, so she didn't need to add insult to injury.

Really? She should have accepted insults and mockery from complete strangers just because he can't ask her in private?

While getting your hopes up and crushing them is harsh, she did save you a lot of embarrassment and awkwardness from the crowd.
