In order to convince his girlfriend to marry him, one Hubei man planned to fall from the sky, gallantly parachuting down right in front of her, before dropping to one knee and asking her to be his forever. But apparently Mother Nature knew something he didn’t and tried to save him the embarrassment.
At first, this Casanova from Yichang city in Hubei province seemed to be right on course…
But at that critical moment fate interviewed, as it often does, in the form of a strong gust of wind that swept him and his parachute reading “Gou Hongyun, marry me!” straight into a tall tree.
Trapped at the top of a tree for over an hour awaiting rescue from firefighters, the guy had some time to think about things. Maybe the world was trying to tell him something?
Unfortunately, he didn’t take the hint, once back on solid ground, he dropped to his knees in front of his beloved asking “will you marry me?”
And she said “no” and walked away.
Well, add failed parachute proposals to the list of ways not to win a girl’s heart, including creepy Rubix’s cube portraits and lychees. Honestly guys, just don’t overthink it. Girls love meat.
