Would you choose a public proposal over a private one?

If you had a choice, would you choose a public proposal over a private one?

It seems not all public proposals end in epic failure...

Over the years, public proposals have become something of a trend amongst lovers. 

There's nothing wrong with that but, it is not a one-size-fits-all kind of act.

Our motivation behind saying that comes from the painful rejection 'proposals' that end up surfing the social media streets, leaving people in your business. 

Luckily, this article is meant to highlight the instances that captured the good and not the bad.

Two public declarations of love recently took over the internet and regained people's hope in love. 

They weren't extravagant with bows and frills, but they were honest and humble. Perhaps that is why people resonated with them so well?

The first one showed a man proposing at a restaurant and it wasn't over-the-top, but genuine.

Sometimes we put too much pressure on love.

But, truthfully, these two examples of love showed us that it's the modest type of love that sometimes wins over everything else. 

Take a look at the second proposal that happened at a mall. People were amused at how casual mall-goers were in their inability to notice this proposal, but it was appreciated for its honesty.
