"I think it must be very cool that in a homosexual couple you don't know which of the two will take the step."
"Homosexual couples videos where one proposes to the other only for the other to freak out and pull out a ring too are definitely one of the best things on the internet."
"This is not a meme this is wholesome. The homophobic people in the comments are the real memes."
"If my proposal doesn’t go like this I DON'T WANT IT."
"I love that these two men were so in love & so in sync with each other."
"*Sees guy propose* Aww that's precious. *Sees guy who was proposed to pull out his own ring HE was going to propose with* My heart can't handle this much wholesomeness. May these two find eternal happiness!"
There were a few negative comments from those against the lifestyle.
