Proposals are usually a very special occasion, no matter how or where they take place. I mean, they’re one of the biggest milestones in any relationship and are the ultimate indicators of love and commitment. They’re an incomparably special moment for both the proposer and the proposee, and something that they should, ideally, want to remember for the rest of their lives.

Of course, some people put infinitely more effort into this excitingly heartstopping moment than others. I mean, there’s a huge difference between proposing on the phone while you’re waiting for the bus and proposing in front of an Cinderella’s Castle at Disney World, for instance.
But hey, if both parties are madly in love with each other, and they’re pretty in tune with what the other wants, then I suppose it doesn’t really matter where it all goes down.

Some prefer to propose in a more isolated and serene environment and others prefer there to be an audience to witness the proposal. Ultimately, that’s something that the one doing the proposing has to decide for themselves and that comes with a hell of a lot of pressure.
Well, one couple from Mexico not only had an audience to witness what was supposed to be a magical moment, but their proposal also took place on a stage (all the better for their audience to see and record them on).

Only in hindsight, the boyfriend who did the proposing probably wishes he had chosen a much more private location and that there had been no one there to witness the total car crash that it turned into. Yes, this is a story of a massively backfired proposal and a whole lot of tears.
The botched proposal took place on a stage in Paseo de la Fe square in Monterrey, the capital of the Mexican state, Nuevo Leon.
