To answer your question about whether you should give a nod to a Valentine’s proposal, we have gathered some arguments that you may find helpful here.
Should: It’s romantic & special
"He proposed to me on Valentine's Day". It is the storyline of high concept that can be told within ten seconds through the phone. Within one day after the proposal, man will appear just like a hero in the eyes of his fiancé’s family and friends.
Should: More joy to come
By getting proposed on February 14, you will probably have the chance to enjoy this holiday more for years to come. It is particularly true if you are a person who would deem Valentine’s Day as a stupid and synthetic day.
In fact, the eve of Valentine ranks second as the most popular day for engagement, only after Christmas Day.
It is not necessarily bad because unlike combining Christmas, the tones of Valentine’s Day and Anniversary are very compatible.

Shouldn't: Propose day should be unique
Valentine’s Day is deemed as an international day, which is kind of evidently true in every way. Meanwhile, the proposal day anniversary is important to the insiders and it is no doubt that it should be as authentic and unique as possible.
Proposing on Valentine’s Day most likely makes your proposal day just as common as others’ anniversary and that thought would not bring so much pleasant association.
Shouldn't: Over-romantic things may not last long
On this day, men often try their hardest to bring the sweetest and most romantic things to their other half.
There are chances where they can be manipulated by their romantic thoughts themselves and got irrational with their decision. Therefore, the promises and amorous things men say on the proposal day would not be carried out in the future.
Shouldn't: Valentine's Day is also the day for divorce
You did not misread that. Polls have been carried out and they say many women consider divorce in this holiday season.
Right about the time that stores a lot of lovestruck cherubs, it reminds them how actually not in love they are. That is when they start to look for a way out. Moreover, a legal Q&A website named Avvo found out that their consumers who search for information about divorce on the site develops over 40% in the weeks near Valentine’s Day.
How to say No to Valentine's marriage proposal?
This is tough for everyone, even when you have prepared for it. In fact, you probably get hints he will get down on his knee this Valentine but you shouldn't let it happen if you plan to say No.

The second scenario is when it actually happens. A lot of pressure will come, and it's very tempting to say yes, particularly in front of other people. However, be firm with your stand, hug him tight and when you're close enough, tell him you will answer in private.
