'It's a measly diamond, you didn't get down on one knee and WHERE'S my flashmob?' Fifth of women left disappointed by their man's proposal
- One in 10 would turn down proposal if they didn't like ring
- Half would consider making a financial contribution to get a better ring
- Flop proposals gone include diamonds that are too small - or no ring at all
Nothing says 'I love you' like a fairy-tale proposal complete with the perfect diamond ring.
But listen up, men. You need to up your game because one in five women are left disappointed by your efforts.
A new survey has revealed that 21 per cent of engaged, married or divorced women were left disappointed by their marriage proposal, but they didn't say anything to their other half and now wished they had.
And 13 per cent of those said they were so disappointed by the proposal that they wanted to cry after it had failed to live up to their expectations.
According to the survey, the top factors cited for marriage proposals gone wrong were: engagement rings that were too small or even no ring at all.
Women were also offended by their men not proposing on bended knee, as tradition dictates, as well as failing to organise a 'special' proposal or not asking parents' permission for their daughter's hand in marriage.
Several couples even had an argument following a less than perfect proposal - whilst other respondents confided in friends about their imperfect proposal rather than turning to their partners.
And it seems that modern would-be brides are so desperate to bag their dream engagement ring they are chipping in to the cost themselves.
