  1. Very sweet, but I find myself being torn between emotional and cynical reactions. At the same time I'm tearing up a bit, and truly hope this couple is happy together, part of me is thinking "Oh for god's sake, can't people just do a simple proposal anymore?!"

    But I'll keep my crabby-@ss side at bay long enough to say congratulations. ;-)

  2. Mr Caliban,
    I'm sure there are lots of folk doing the quiet corner of a bistro, very subdued and private proposals. But I like seeing these public displays. I think it helps "normalize" ss proposals (although I hate using that word normal). It's almost like the old announcing the banns of marriage to the populace.
    Besides, it's also very fabulous!!!

  6. At the end of the day this is for the couple. We can be as cynical as we want. This should be normalize for society to change. Base on their age, just a few years ago, they would not thought that this is possible for their relationship to be legally recognize within their life time.

  11. Is the guy in the gray shirt crying while they are sitting on the fountain? Like he knows what is coming? It's cute but I went into watching it thinking it was a surprise proposal with flash mob but doesn't seem to be

  14. Isn't it a bit odd for a man to put his hand up over his mouth when he is emotional? I don't know of any men who do this, only women.

  15. I must stop watching these things; they kill me... So sweet. And, I love seeing two big ol' guys gettin' all romantic and weepy...

    (He did talk forever, though! )

  18. Chase, I do that. Lots of people do.

  19. I need to watch these kinds of videos more because it will never happen to me so I must experience it vicariously!

  21. The self hating gays HATE any identifiable gay person or gay couple...

    so expect them to completely lose their ish over this

  22. This was awesome, and so touching. If you don't want a public proposal like this, then let your partner know. Many of us happen to like it and find the decleration of love to be romantic and let our partner know that. I would be thrilled with a proposal like this.

  23. This is how you unapologetically be you and not apologize for who you are.


    Many wonderful years to this great couple
