Men who proposed to their partners and got rejected have all shared their stories, with most admitting relief that they didn’t end up with their partners.
Jagaraujo, a Reddit user started the thread by asking guys to share their proposal rejection stories.
Some said they eventually realized that they had ‘dodged a bullet’ when they were told no, while others admitted they are still heartbroken.
A man sharing his story said he was ‘so sure’ the woman he had been dating for a little over a year was the one that he drove two hours to see her at college and proposed during a ‘beautiful winter night walk.’
‘She looks me right in the eyes and said, “Oh you thought this was serious? Well, um, I don’t know how to say this other than I have been seeing other people. Well, actually I have been seeing other women,”‘ The man wrote.
‘I was stunned I got up put the ring in my pocket and walked to my car got in and drove away never looking back crying the whole time,’ he said. ‘Haven’t seen or spoken with her in seven years even though she has tried countless times to reach out.
‘Now it’s a story I tell friends who are nervous about asking their significant others to marry them. Reminding them that even if they say no it could be worse.’
