If there is anything that we have learned over the years, it’s that you should never try to win a girl’s heart with a large number of fruits. And yet, time and again, young Chinese romantics keep trying, and keep failing in this romantic endeavor
On Monday night, one Henan university student tried to win back his ex-girlfriend with a public display of his love for her in the form of 99 watermelons placed out on the school’s sports field, along with one cake.
But, as is so often the case in these kind of situations, the girl failed to show up to the grand gesture, but campus security did. Security guards promptly broke up the event, telling the crowd to go home.
Happily however, spectators did not go home empty-handed and were allowed to take away the watermelons for free by the sullen guy’s friend.
Pretty much this exact same thing happened last year — only with pomelos and 999 of them. The year before that one young Romeo’s lychee proposal also failed with his sweetheart popping one lychee in her mouth before running away.
Guys, don’t know how many times we have to keep repeating this: Girls love meat.
