Champagne? Check. Specially reserved spot? Check. Throw in the candles, the petals, the ambient lighting, and all the right elements were in place for the perfect proposal.
Having read the restaurant memo that it was a proposal, the waitress approached the couple and congratulated them on their engagement. Instead of a warm thanks, the waitress got a confused look from the girlfriend and a furious scowl from the boyfriend – he had not yet proposed!
A Terrible Surprise
This act of love and commitment couldn't have gone more wrong if it were written by a screenwriter. A boyfriend convinced his girlfriend he would be out of town on Valentine’s Day but had arranged a surprise engagement with her friends and family.
Along with several family members and friends, the boyfriend hid in the apartment, waiting for his girlfriend to arrive home. She eventually did – in the arms of another man! Wow, sounds like something we'd binge on Hulu.
A local dive bar did not expect to be entertaining a Valentine’s Day wedding proposal. Nonetheless, a hopeful fiancé asked the staff to help arrange a surprise proposal for his girlfriend and really did seem like everything will go according to plan.
The manager stored the ring in the safe. However, the bar owner came across it and, thinking that it was a lost and found item, decided that it would be great for his girlfriend! This is a pretty epic fail on the restaurant's side, but we at least hope the women agreed to marry this poor lad.
A Romantic Tragedy
Romance can be hard to pull off when you're completely broke. But sometimes it can actually spark creative ideas. This guy wasn't that inventive, but hey, sometimes a nice short walk can be just as good as a fancy restaurant.
This, of course, only if you make sure not to elbow your partner in the face. If you did, maybe you should try and make it up to her, by actually taking her to a fancy dinner and keeping your elbows to yourself.
Too Much Liquid Courage
Is there anything more romantic than saying I love you for the first time? It's a moment you don't want to mess up. Some people even go to the extent of planning a whole evening around the touching admission.
What could have been a beautiful moment turned out to be an awkward one that this guy will forever remember as a romantic fail.
