WTF?

What is UP with dudes these days? First there was Alexey Bykov, the guy who pretended to die in a car crash in order to make his girlfriend realize how she can’t live without him (really, really). Now there comes the story of Ryan Thompson, a guy who pretended that the small plane he was flying was going to crash in order to propose to his girlfriend Carlie Kennedy. He planted the proposal in a flight checklist, and while pretending that the plane was going down, he asked her to read from the checklist. Despite the elaborate and terrifying ruse, she accepted (they always do, don’t they?)

Awwww!

Let this be a lesson: if you intend on surprising your girlfriend with a proposal while attending a taping of “Conan,” make sure you emphasize that the host should be subtle when handing you the mic. Still, so cute. [Team Coco]

Alexey Bykov wanted to prove to his girlfriend how important he was to her. How romantic, right? So he contracted a stuntman, makeup artist, screenwriter and director to stage a fake car crash just so his girlfriend could watch him die. Only, of course, Bykov, 30, from Onsk, Russia, wasn’t actually dead. He had staged the whole thing so that he could propose. Yes, this makes no sense.

“When I arrived there were mangled cars everywhere, ambulances, smoke, and carnage,” said Irina, clearly traumatized from the realization that she’s dating the most manipulative fucker ever. “Then when I saw Alexey covered in blood lying in the road a paramedic told me he was dead and I just broke down in tears.” Keep reading »

Hitched: Your Elaborately Planned Public Marriage Proposal Is Awkward For Everyone

If you are currently in the process of planning an elaborate and public marriage proposal to your intended, please consider not doing that, not doing that even for a minute, and instead consider just stopping everything you had planned and not ever doing that, and even if you still want to do it a little bit, I beg you, don’t ever do it.

Elaborate public marriage proposals are rude and awkward. They’re presumptuous in the worst ways. They’re intrusive. They’re manipulative—and not just toward the proposer’s intended. Keep reading »

I’m a sucker for proposal videos, but this one is a two four Kleenex affair. On Saturday night, a woman named Christina proposed to her girlfriend Alicia during halftime at a Senators/Maple Leafs game while cheesy music plays in the background. If we can forget for a moment that public proposals are horrifying, this one is actually sweet: a lesbian couple can declare in front of a packed auditorium and the audience claps and cheers. Sniffle, sniffle.  [Yahoo]

I’m a 27-year-old female, and I’ve been with my 31 year old boyfriend for over five years now. We have made a happy and loving life together, including sharing a home, sharing our finances, being closely involved with each other’s families, and we even have two cats and a puppy together. About a year ago we started talking seriously about getting engaged within the next six months, but by the time fall rolled around, my boyfriend told me that though he loves me and wants nothing more than a future with me, he was just not ready for an engagement yet. He had some issues from his parents’ divorces, and decided to begin counseling to deal with them. Keep reading »

According to the Howie Mandel-helmed show “Mobbed,” women just love elaborately choreographed proposals, involving hundreds of singers and dancers, and complex ruses. This particular proposal, though, doesn’t strike me as romantic–AT ALL. Nope. It just seems incredibly emotionally manipulative and messed up. Watch, as this poor woman thinks her boyfriend’s been cheating on her, and then is assaulted by a seemingly endless musical number. Geez. Pretty screwed up if you ask me. [FashionIndie]
