Here's our selection of some of the best, most cringe-worthy stories. You're so welcome.
PepsiMaxismycrack: "We were on our second date and he was my boss. Did say yes eventually - three years later though and we just celebrated our 13th anniversary."
Blood_magic: "Because I was 15, we had only been dating like two weeks, and he once told me that women who wear anything deemed slutty deserve to be raped."
CelticMara: "Because it was a drunk, homeless guy in Times Square asking if I'd marry him on a bet."
empressbunny: "First proposal: we broke up after 5 years and he thought proposing would have me running back to him. Uh. No. Second proposal: we were never actually together because he get waffling about what he wanted. Calling me drunk to profess his love, talking sober like it was all a joke. After stringing me along for a month or 6, I warned him I'd move on. He didn't believe me. I moved on. He called me 26 times and proposed. I told him no. He said that if I had ever really loved him, I would have waited. I told him that if he ever really loved me, he would have had no trouble committing to a relationship."
meltedsnowflake: "Because we'd been talking for a total of 15 minutes on Facebook and he was wanting to move to the US and have my American children (And a green card)."
in_the_vortex: "Because he asked me on our first date."

EllaShue: "Proposal one: We were nine years old at the time, and I wasn't very into him anyway. Proposal two: He'd known me maybe three weeks. I had met him at a Renaissance festival. I wasn't very into him anyway. Proposal three: He was a friend who somehow got the idea that because I was single at the time and was his friend, we were in a relationship. I wasn't very into him anyway."
buzznights: "It was a next logical step for him but not for me. It was like a formula - date for 2 yrs, live together for 2 so of course the marriage comes next. I think it was more of a progression for him rather than a 'damn I better marry this girl.' I trusted my instincts and said no. Twice."
Ouch. That's got to hurt...
