The student wanted to surprise his crush, so he came up with a full display at a shopping center, where the general public would be able to witness the whole event. That was probably mistake #1 right there, but just wait and see what happens next.
What’s more is that he even took the time to write a personalized love note on every single one of the pomelos! Can you even imagine how long that must’ve taken him? We’ve got to give him some credit there.
And if you didn’t think all of that was enough, he even wrote his crush a love song that he performed for her in front of the crowd over a loudspeaker. He must’ve been really sure that she was going to say yes!
Her expression in the above photo really says it all. After he hands her a big bouquet of roses, she says into the microphone that she would really prefer to just stay friends. She clearly was not expecting any of this!
Now he’s got 999 problems but a girlfriend ain’t one (but not for long…).
Sadly, this wasn’t the first time a poor kid has been rejected after making a big display out of fruit. One man in Xi’an, China proposed to his girlfriend using a display of lychees. However, not knowing what to say, his confused girlfriend ate one of the lychees and ran away. Awkward!
The moral of the story? Maybe in general it’s better to tell your crush how you feel in private, in case awkward situations like these happen. These must’ve been incredibly uncomfortable situations for the girl too!
Perhaps the secret to a successful proposal is to ditch the fruit. One man in Beijing proposed to his girlfriend of five years at a hot pot restaurant with a bouquet of artfully sliced meats. Yup, you guessed it...she said yes.
