proposal10If you don't get at least a little choked up by these proposals, then maybe you should ask the Grinch to marry you. (In a boring, non-elaborate way, of course.) These marriage proposals go above and beyond the typical on-bended-knee gesture and to some, may seem like just a delusion of grandeur. But they're still pretty freaking cute. Ladies, I'd like to personally thank you for saying yes, because I have seen videos of crazy proposals gone wrong and I just... can't... take it sometimes.
These crazy Russians. When Alexey Bykov wanted to propose to his long-time girlfriend Irena Kolokov, things got messy. He chose to fake his own death but made up for it by proposing to Bykov while she weeped. ROMANCE ISN'T DEAD PEOPLE.
