"Jump if you love me": Proposal Gone Wrong in Chongqing (Video)

Tap "ChinaWire" !


Marriage proposals in public can be a risky affair, sometimes ending with teary joy or quickly turning into awkward rejections. It’s a huge leap of faith, and no one wants to screw it up.

Despite that risk though, a few days ago one man’s love was tested when he went down on bended knee and popped the question to his beloved on a bridge overlooking a river in Chongqing, China.

The man scattered a bunch of rose petals on the ground to perhaps set a romantic mood. Naturally, this has attracted a bunch of onlookers.

“If you really do love me, then jump into the river to prove it!” was the woman’s answer. We don’t know what possessed her to utter such an ultimatum; perhaps there wasn’t any real love in the first place.

Driven into a corner, our man looked somewhat deflated, hoping to find some way to wriggle out of the situation. The onlookers were not helping though, as they began to chant, “Jump! Jump! Jump!”

Instead of backing away and thinking twice about marrying a woman who wanted him dead, the man threw down his bouquet of roses, kicked off his slippers, and promptly leapt into the river. It was all so effortless, you would have thought he was just heading to the nearest convenience store.

Not everyone in the crowd was heartless though, as someone quickly threw the poor chap a tire just in case, you know, he can’t swim.
