New Year's Eve is a popular time for people around the world to get down on one knee and pop the ultimate question.
She appeared mortified when her partner decided to propose in a crowded room on New Year's Eve.
Unfortunately, as there were so many witnesses, the whole thing was caught on camera, and it's a testament to the fact that if you're in any way not sure of the answer, you might want to opt for a more low-key proposal location.
The debacle made its way onto TikTok on Monday (2 January) and begins by showing the unidentified woman being ushered to the dance floor at the rooftop bar in Hawaii.
The floor had been cleared of revellers and romantic music was playing, but she seemed oblivious to what was about to happen.
The now-viral video was overlayed with the caption: "omg they stopped the entire NYE party for this guy to propose and the girl was NOT HAVING IT [sic]."
"WAIT UNTIL THE END," the eyewitness who posted the video added. "That was the most awkward thing I've ever witnessed.”
The video begins with the man explaining how much he loves his girlfriend, but she looks less than enthusiastic as she slowly makes her way towards him.
"You're the love of my life, and will you make me the happiest man in the world," he says. "Will you marry me?"
Instead of gushing yes like you'd expect in an ideal scenario, the woman stands in silence.
This prompts the man to press for an answer, adding: "It's a simple yes or no."
It's then that she finally speaks, still appearing as awkward as ever, and says: "Oh my gosh. Yes?"
While this was met with applause from the partygoers, those filming it still looked awkward at what they'd just witnessed - and TikTok had a lot to say about it too.
In fact, the video has been viewed 4.5 million times since it was posted yesterday.
Reacting to the seriously awkward footage, one viewer remarked: "a proposal itself should never be a surprise. the only surprise should be where/when it happens [sic]."
A second added: "she probably wanted something romantic and sweet and he did it at a party drunk [sic]."
"SEE. This is why I told my fiancé how I wanted my proposal to be," wrote a third. "Private, in public, or in front of family. These are important questions to ask."
"Public proposals are so wrong," declared a fourth. "It's very manipulative and pressuring bc the crowd all expects you to say yes."
