Popping the question has become more of a public rather than private affair. People who organize public proposals cannot be shy or reserved people, can they? Unless of course they are being pushed by something deeper than their shyness - a willingness to tell everyone who is willing to listen, how much they care about the girl/boy and how much they want to be with them.

"How to go about presenting a public proposal"

Public proposals can be organized in various ways. Creativity and pocket size often play a big role in how the proposal is organized and presented

1. It could be presented by someone, a 3rd party,who will putting up a performance on behalf of the proposer. For example, a singer dropping by at the couple's table in a restaurant, singing "Girl's name, will you please be mine forever" while the guy drops down on his knees. It could also be someone on stage announcing a special message for "The girl" or dedicating a song/poem for them.

2. Alternatively, the guy could suddenly appear on the stage himself and ask his girl to come forward. The guy could do it himself at a function in which they are both invited, e.g.a family function.

These public declarations of love and commitment are regarded as romantic by a lot of women. But they always carry a huge possibility of rejection and embarassment. While on-lookers watch with their hearts pumping faster and faster, and with a fear/anxiety about a possible rejection, they are often delighted and touched when the proposal is accepted. They become a part of it, emotionally.
