I feel like proposing to my future wife will be one of the most nerve-wracking experiences of my entire life. It’s not like asking a chick to prom where you can text her and avoid the face-to-face interactions. “Hey, want to go to prom with me?” “No, your face looks like what I imagine the rectal discharge of a lemur with an infected butthole.” “Lol no hard feelings. See you in school.” Can’t do that for marriage. “Hey, want to get married?” “I’m literally standing in the next room. Is this a fucking joke?” That relationship will go from buying a wedding ring to renting a UHaul to move out of her apartment in less than a day.
That being said, I think there’s definitely a line you need to straddle. Just find a middleground between texting her from the other room and whatever this dude did.

“A young man had his friends put on balaclavas, pull his terrified girlfriend out of his car and shove
her face-down on the ground – all so that he could propose to her. Terrified girlfriend Alexandra thought she was just going out for a car ride with her boyfriend Vlad Lungu and was clearly not expecting the ‘police ambush’. Vlad was driving the car and she was sitting in the passenger seat as they drove down the quiet street in his native city of Brasov in central Romania. Three friends dressed as policemen and wearing balaclavas were waiting for them next to a fake white ‘police’ van. They stopped the car and announced that they were going to carry out a search.
Alexandra was then pulled out of the car and forced onto the tarmac. Her face was shoved against the ground and her chin can be seen pressed on the asphalt. A ‘police officer’ shouts: “Do you know this man?! Do you know what he has got in the boot?!” Alexandra was then pulled out of the car and forced onto the tarmac. Her face was shoved against the ground and her chin can be seen pressed on the asphalt. A ‘police officer’ shouts: “Do you know this man?! Do you know what he has got in the boot?!”
But just next to the back of the car, Vlad is waiting on bended knee and ring in hand. After realising that it was all an elaborately-planned wedding proposal, Alexandra takes a few moments to recover from her fright and looks close to tears. After several seconds of laughter, Vlad eventually asks: “Will you marry me?” and Alexandra nods and quietly says: “Yes.””
People do this in movies about inadvertently being married to a psychopath. This guy had his girlfriend manhandled and tossed to the ground by a bunch of your friends so you can ask her to marry you. It’d be like if you asked a girl to go to dinner but she’s gotta bang your friends first. It just doesn’t make any sense. Her saying yes makes me think that they do weird shit to each other all the time, though. Maybe this is just par for the course for them. Get tossed to the curb by a couple of strangers before climbing into bed with one another. It works for some people.
