Woman's reaction to proposal is totally over the top (VIDEO)

Getting engaged is always an emotional moment. After all, you are committing yourself to spend your life with one person. You are choosing that person and planning your future. It's a tear-jerker for everyone. But for one woman, this emotion was way too much for her to take.

Apparently, Cody had told his girlfriend Amanda that he didn't have the money for a ring, so naturally she was thrilled to find out he had been planning this surprise all along. But even so. Her reaction. Is just. Just. Wow. You have to see it for yourself.

A lot of people online are making fun of Amanda. They are saying that Cody shouldn't marry her because she is clearly insane. They say she is overly emotional and that will get old fast. They make good points in some ways. She is over the top, and honestly, it's a bit embarrassing.

On the other hand, who wouldn't be emotional? Besides, it is such an obvious display of love, it's hard not to root for them. They will make it, right? She is clearly just so head-over-heels for the man.

This video also begs a questions, though. Why was this shared? This should have been a private moment between two people. Involve the rest of the family if it makes sense, but the general public? Really? Do we all need to see this? By sharing it the way they did, they invited criticism of a lovely moment. They have made Amanda self-conscious. Now she might not react with her genuine feelings for fear of ridicule and criticism. It also puts people in a tough spot. We want to be happy for them. We are happy for them. But also, it's funny.

Sorry. It just is.

I'd never knock a person for being emotionally honest. And that is what she is. So good on her. But I'd also caution people to keep their private moments private. There is no reason that this should be anything but a happy time for Amanda. But you put something like this on YouTube and you invite the peanut gallery to comment. Who wants that?

Congratulations to the happy couple.
