Proposals are a huge deal. There is usually a lot of planning to do, including deciding on where and when to pop the question, keeping it a surprise, and most importantly, picking the right ring. This is something many people struggle with, and most just give up before they even try because they know it’s a lost cause.
In this case, the guy was given all the info he needed, and most importantly, his future wife gave him her ring size, but he someone didn’t get the memo, which made for an awkward moment.
Worst Surprise Ever
Matching tattoos aren't usually a good idea. It could be nice to get one with a parent or a friend, but getting one with a partner is a big no-no. Still, if you are getting one, it's usually best if both sides agree to it and know it's about to happen.
Surprising someone by telling them you got the same tattoo as them? Not cool and probably the worst surprise ever.
Get a Gift Card Next Time
We get it, gifts can be hard. Some people just don't really have a knack for understanding what kind of bought item would make their significant other happy. That doesn't make them bad partners, just bad gift-givers.
Still, we think even a gift card would have been better in this case, instead of getting her something she already had. We're really not sure we got his thought process here.
No Artistic Merit
Most of us can trust our parents to really enjoy and appreciate our not-so-great childhood drawings. But just because your mom hangs every little doodle on the fridge, that doesn't mean it's a masterpiece.
If you're not artistically talented, you really have no business giving anything you made to anyone, let alone your crush. While handmade gifts can be romantic, they can also be really really lousy, so you gotta be honest with yourself.
Going Number Two
Well, well well, we are not 100% sure if this constitutes a fail, as it ended with a happily ever after, unlike many of our other stories here. But still, couldn't this guy come up with a better excuse? Like really, almost anything would have been better.
What's wrong with saying you're going to the kitchen to grab some water? Fortunately, this didn't deter her from marrying him, which is how we know it's true love.
