You have seen clips where a man interrupts statuesque to propose to his woman and apart from a cheering crowd, she is excited and ecstatic. That expression is what any man hopes to get from his lover. However, many have not been that fortunate. That was the cup that a young man drank from on the recently celebrated Valentine’s Day.
One would wonder what befell them because how would one go through all the preparation only to be rejected? However, it was the very occurrence in this video that has made several rounds on social media. Significant that it is not a given that you are your partner are always on the same page.
On Valentine’s Day, the unidentified man’s in the video had his heart shredded when his marriage proposal was rejected.
In the video said to be captured at Kisementi, a blindfolded woman was led into the restaurant space by a friend. Once the fold was removed, she seemed happy to see her ‘boyfriend.’
I feel for this guy. However, any man who puts a woman under pressure by proposing in public should be ready to take the L in public as well if she says NO. I’m happy that more & more women are refusing to succumb to the societal pressure of ‘Say Yes.’ pic.twitter.com/aq7I929UFp

However, sweetness turned into bitterness when the man went to his knees. Despite the chanting of “say yes” from those in the space, the woman was not sold out by his public display of affection.
He took it a step further to hold her hand, as a preamble to give her the engagement ring. It must have seemed automatic that she would accept. However, the woman was struggling to pull her hand away from the man. In all this, he silently prayed that she gets into the thrill of the moment as he remained on his knees, quietly pleading with her to accept his ring.
