If you propose and they say "no" is/should the relationship over?
No...but it would probably get a bit more complicated!
Depends on why they said no.
If the answer is truly a plain, flat "no," then I'm not going to waste my time with that. If it's more of a "no not yet," or something more reasonable that the relationship can work towards to turn the answer into a "yes," then I would respect that and not break it up.
Totally depends on what you both want.
There's no objective "should." It does depend on the circumstances as to whether or not the relationship can recover. If someone gave me a no, but for whatever reason wanted to keep dating in the short term, I'd probably end it. Something along the lines of "we haven't been seeing each other for very long, I think we should live together first" or "address this larger issue before we consider it," might be workable depending on the circumstances.
Although it is concerning if both parties haven't discussed and been on the same page about getting married in the near future prior to a proposal.
Depends on how hard they laugh.
I like this answer.
Is an agreement for Mr/s. Right Now out of the question? 😛
It's hard to envision a relationship ever fully recovering after a failed proposal.
I feel for you if this poll resembles events in your personal life.
What do u mean?
I mean that a failed proposal is incredibly damaging to a relationship and I can't see it recovering after that. The beginning of the end.
Not necessarily. Sometimes yes.
F*****g A !
If you are ready to settle into domestic bliss, ask your S O to marry. If they are not ready or have no wish to marry,ever: You need to move on and find your life partner.
I don't know but I'm sure as hell never proposing again.
If she embarrassed you when declining your offer, shame on her. You are truly better off without her. Go a bit slower next time and make sure she loves you dearly before you propose.
Thanks but this is just hypothetical.
Proposal etiquette: If someone does something huge in front of like everyone they know or the entire stadium just say yes and then a private time say no because that is embarrassing.
Depends on what comes after the "no."
On TV it's always I'm not ready. I think that's a valid reason to say no.
Event still. If you're ready and they aren't, resentment can take hold only separating the two
Probably not. It doesn't change the feelings either has for the other, and not every relationship just has to end right now today in marriage or splitsville. It was an early or inappropriate ask. It's the one question the asker should already know the answer to before asking it. But if the no is a "not yet", what's the hurry? And if the no is a "not ever", how was it a big surprise?
It depends on the no. I'd assume that the respondent would clarify that upon saying "no" and that it would be obvious.
I think it depends on the "No"... is it I'm not ready or this is NEVER going to happen? If it's the latter, then it's probably, "See ya..."
Always insightful Bama
