One in four woman turn down a proposal

13 Feb 2017

With the pressure mounting ahead of a plethora of Valentine's Day proposals, recent research has revealed an astonishing amount of women who have already said 'no'

A proposal can be one of the most pressurised moments ever faced by those who brave the bended knee, and short break specialist SuperBreak has found that nearly one in four women have turned down at least one proposal during their lifetime.

Reasons for turning down a proposal included that “it didn’t feel right” or that they didn’t think their partner was taking the proposal seriously enough, or even believing that the proposal was actually a joke.

A staggering 29% of women even said that they’d say no because of the chosen location. Yet, 23% of respondents who had turned down a proposal also admitted that they had regretted the decision later on. 

In response to the findings, SuperBreak has brought back its Proposal Planner, to provide inspiration for a proposal based on the partner's personality traits.

Jacquie Fisher at SuperBreak, said: “We realise that proposing is a big decision for most people and it can be a daunting task to make sure you get it absolutely right. That’s why we’re bringing back our Proposal Planner, which provides all the inspiration needed to plan a perfect proposal; from picking the perfect destination to ideas on how to pop the question”.
