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....

Maybe she actually "pleasing" others and that's why she doesn't want to get married.

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.

Pleasing the crowd rather than being honest right off is as bad as lying outright. You make OPs day by saying yes, he's flying high then you pull the floor out from under him by doing that, it's not any better than lying right off.

False. With such mentality and mind set of OP's girl, she was more concerned about not having the crowd see her as the bad person rejecting OP more than caring about OP's dignity.

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.

She saved him embarrassment but shattered his world and somehow this is all cool. Sure it may be biased but wouldn't you write it this way? She killed him emotionally, that's the worst kind of death.

#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.

Don't worry man you are better off without her if she is shallow enough to make you happy just to save her self the embarrassment.

On the posts where she says no in front of everyone people say "she should have just pulled you aside after." I'd honestly rather not be embarrassed in public and get heartbroken later. Fuck it, you'll get over it. It was good in the moment.

You don't need to be with her. at least she saved you from public embarrassment but still, Not cool

"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.

I think a "can we talk about this in private" would have been more courteous/graceful.

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.

You got into this mess for putting her under public pressure. You deserve it. Don't make a public thing out of your relationship.

Wow seriously? Thats harsh as hell. The girlfriend shouldn't have lied just so she didnt get boo'd by the crowd.
