What Men Really Think About Women Proposing

We hit the streets of New York City to get guys to confess how they really feel about the bended-knee thing--if they're not doing the bending.

Q: "A woman proposing--you okay with that?"





"It just wouldn't feel good. If you're in a relationship and she's asking, something isn't right." -- Nick N., 26











"Totally! It would take the pressure off of me and save me the five grand on a ring." -- Matt C., 24










"I'd feel kind of awkward. But if I were in love, it would save me the nervousness." -- Angel O., 33










"It would be weird, but I'd get used to it. But I probably wouldn't tell my friends how it went down." -- Gabriel S., 28










"If I loved her--great! Men always do it; it's about time a woman stepped up." -- Xavier M., 29





The verdict? Not all men are alike, and only you know your boyfriend well enough to say if he'd be comfortable-or even happy-if you popped the question.
