In Hubei yesterday, one gallant man pulled up to a hospital in a SUV towing a boat. He climbed up on the boat, held a bouquet of flowers and shouted into a megaphone, “XXX I love you! Please forgive me!”
After a bit of that, a young woman stepped out of the hospital and climbed up on the boat. With a large crowd of people gathered around cheering and taking photos on their smartphones, the man pulled out a ring and asked for the woman’s hand in marriage.
Much to everyone’s surprise, the woman nonchalantly threw the ring away and returned back to the hospital ward. After a while, the man left too, maybe to do some soul-searching boating.
Where did this dude go wrong? Well, after reporting on quite a few of these proposals over the years, we can give some sound advice to any man thinking about proposing to his significant other.
DO: Ask in the metro, in the hospital, during a protest. Use helicopters, luxury cars and meat bouquets,
DON’T: Use lychees. Seriously, this is important guys, can’t stress this enough, never use lychees. Avoid boats as well, it seems, at least on dry land.
