Hundreds of tourists at a scenic spot in Guangyuan, Sichuan province were witnesses to a somewhat rare sight yesterday as four women donning wedding gowns showed up, bent down on their knees and proposed to their police officer boyfriends as a group.
Zhao Xiaofeng, born in the 1990s, told reporters that the four men are coworkers and good friends. She and the the other women planned to propose together as a surprise before Singles’ Day (November 11), Tencent reports.
Zhao and the other women carefully prepared the event way ahead of time. They chose a date when all their boyfriends were off and invited them to the biggest glass sky deck in Asia, located in Sichuan’s Jiange county.
Tourist witness their love.
Seeing the girlfriends kneel down to propose, each guy hugged his respective gal and accepted.
“He Tao (Zhao’s boyfriend) is the Deputy General Commander in their group. He told me his previous girlfriends left him because he couldn’t spend more time with her,” said Zhao. “I understand him. I love him. I quit my job in Chengdu last July just for him. We’ve been together for around six months, but we can’t see each other very often. He treats me pretty well.”
Zhao said that the women hope their boyfriends can now focus on work without having to worry about future marriage plans.
