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.
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 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 Bitter Chocolate Experience
Playfulness is a big part of any good romantic relationship. Put ice cream on top of that, and you get a sweet surprise! This Reddit poster was watching what seemed to be a cute exchange between a couple, the husband dabbed a spot of ice cream on the tip of his partner’s nose.
He did it once more, but this time with the chocolate ice cream. The lovely lady got mad at him for wasting chocolate by putting it on her face and not in her mouth. Honestly, we are 100% on her side.
Hiding an engagement ring under the table sounded like a good enough idea at first. But, many things that seem promising at first turn out to be complete disasters. In this case, it was a man who walked past the table and spotted the ring.
Proposal ruined! Unless maybe the two thought this random stranger was actually proposing to them! He was on the floor and presenting the ring, what else would they think? Was this the first day of the rest of their lives, where they lived as a throuple? We doubt it.
