Let this be a lesson to bros everywhere: if you’re going to show up on a speedboat in the middle of a crowded street and propose to your girlfriend then you sure as hell better be certain that her answer’s going to be yes.
Some anonymous guy in China made extravagant plans to propose to his girlfriend that involved showing up at the hospital she works at while standing inside of a speedboat (on a trailer), wooing her into coming outside, greeting her with flowers and some sort of apology for something he’d done, then asking her to marry him. That’s when she proceeded to dance a jig on his balls and jab a stake right through his heart:

According to reports, the grand gesture took place outside a hospital in Wuhan on October 22.
The man arrived at the hospital on board a speedboat that was docked on a car-towed boat trolley.
While holding a bunch of flowers, the man shouted to his girlfriend through a loudspeaker: ‘I love you! Please forgive me.’
Moments later, a woman came out of the hospital and climbed on board the speedboat.
Photographs from the scene showed a crowd had gathered around the couple while two people appeared to be videoing the event.
The boat was towed along the road with the happy couple still on board.

However, just a few hundred feet later, the car stopped and the woman got off again.
The man reportedly proposed to his girlfriend at this point and the crowd that had gathered cheered.
Rather unexpectedly, the woman threw away the ring and rejected his proposal for unknown reasons. She then returned to the hospital.
Dejected, the man also left on his speedboat.
Photographs of the incident was shared on Chinese social media sites such as Weibo, China’s equivalent of Twitter, where the man received widespread ridicule.
I feel the need to repeat what I said above: if you’re going to show up on a speedboat in the middle of a crowded street and propose to your girlfriend then you sure as hell better be certain that her answer’s going to be yes.
The last place you want to find yourself in life is proposing to someone, having her do a dance all over your balls, rip your heart out, and leave you standing there to be made fun of by a country of over 1.35 billion people.
However, given the fact that he apologized to her for something early on before he proposed I’m inclined to believe that whatever it is that he was apologizing for wasn’t some minor infraction, like he forgot to put the toilet seat down in the middle of the night. I’m guessing that once the gravity of the situation set it, and she remembered whatever it was he did she got the hell out of there as fast as possible, but that’s all conjecture on my part.
