I would've thrown the ring on the table and walked out, If you feel as though you are ready, what right do other people have to say otherwise?

Just think about it man? What would have happened if Frodo did that...

I'll tell you what would happen. Boromir would have picked it up and simply walked into Mordor. Brutalising the whole damn Mordor army as he went.

So all in all, yeah, not a bad idea. Pic related

Depends, is your to-be-wife ready? I mean, she gets a say in this even if you feel you're ready. Though everyone else can shove it.

that's also a good point, but she'd say "I'm not ready" or something, not reject you.
User avatar #29 to #28 - organiclead (10/16/2013) [-]
It's pretty easy to take something along the lines of "Not yet" or "no, I'm not interested right now" in the worst possible way. After all, getting rejected in front of people is a pretty hard blow to the ego.

Ergo don't do it in front of everybody unless you KNOW she's going to say yes. Hint: Most women will make small remarks or hint at things if they're interested/ready.

Not all men intrepid those correctly or even think about how their wife feels about the move when they're absolutely sure this is where they want to take their life. The same can be said for women, but that tends not to factor into classic "man proposed to woman" style proposals.

If they don't think about the woman's feelings on that, they're obviously not ready (or an ass and we now know why she said "no").

Gotta agree with deda. Unless you know for absolute certain that she wants to marry you (which he obviously did not), public proposals are a dick move. The only correct thing to be thinking after this situation is "Damn, *I* ****** up." If instead you are feeling "wow, you are such a bitch, here take this ring", then you are too immature to be doing anything even remotely adult.

And that's why you're not ready, dickass.
User avatar #12 to #11 - mrhazzy ONLINE (10/16/2013) [-]
Why because I don't want other people to judge my actions? If I want to marry someone, I'd rather not have anyone say "Good Call, He's not ready." Because that's just shoveling **** into the fire. Dickass.
User avatar #13 to #12 - dedaluminus (10/16/2013) [-]
No, because you'd throw the ring on the table like a petulant child.

So you are saying that If your hopeful future wife flatly rejected your proposal, that wouldn't piss you off in the slightest? and to top it all off your father assumed you weren't near ready.

I could see that possibly being a relationship breaking scenario. I would've walked out because the amount of awkwardness afterwards would be to hard to handle...

I'd be sad, but I wouldn't be angry. It would mean that I completely misread the person I'm with, in a way that would make me fundamentally question the relationship whether or not my dad was a dick about it. If the act of throwing your ring on the table and storming out had an associated sound effect, it would be "WAAAAAH!"
User avatar #18 to #17 - mrhazzy ONLINE (10/16/2013) [-]
Maybe for you, I'd bid them good day and walk out silently, no fuss about it, It would also make me seriously question our relationship, clearly he was into it more than her, which begs the question, "What does she want out of it?" Knowing me I'd probably end it there, for him to propose hopefully meant they had been dating for a few years, She could've said she wasn't ready, then it would've been less of a blow, but to flatly reject someone, that must've been harsh.

So which is it? I just saw "I'd throw the ring on the table and walk out because I'm so pissed" and "I'd bid them good day and walk out silently".
User avatar #35 to #32 - mrhazzy ONLINE (10/16/2013) [-]
I'd be pissed, but I'd say my goodbyes like a gentleman and then go rage outside.
User avatar #14 to #13 - mutzaki (10/16/2013) [-]
Yeah, you're much better off getting some money back for it.
User avatar #15 to #14 - dedaluminus (10/16/2013) [-]
Eeeexactly. If things are over, deal with it like a man, and if they aren't over, don't be a bitch.
