Woman Proposes With New Car and $146,000 on Glass Bridge, Boyfriend Runs Away
A woman’s lavish wedding proposal on a glass bridge in China failed miserably when the man she loves stormed away because he could not walk toward her.
The proposal took place on a 30-meter-high (98-foot-high) glass bridge in Xinmi, Henan province on Aug. 15, according to The Paper.
Coming from a wealthy family, Xiao Jing, 23, proposed to her boyfriend, Xiao Yu, also 23, with a brand new car and 1,000,000 yuan ($146,105).
But Xiao Jing had one final “test” that would grant Xiao Yu her heart and everything else she offered — he must cross the bridge to say yes.
“We’ve been dating for three years. I’m happy that I met you but I can’t marry you because of your timid personality,” Xiao Jing said. “Everything is ready. All you have to do is to walk past the corridor and I will marry you.”
Unfortunately, Xiao Yu is afraid of heights.
As seen in pictures, he struggled as friends even tried to push him.
In the end, Xiao Yu simply couldn’t make it — he freed himself from his friend’s clutches and walked away.
A devastated Xiao Jing was left at the scene as onlookers processed what happened.
A video of the failed proposal quickly went viral on Chinese social media. According to Sing Tao Daily, some said that Xiao Yu may not be after the money at all.
Others argued that Xiao Jing’s method to invite him for marriage was inappropriate.
Still, some claimed that the whole thing was fake, though a spokesman for the bridge pointed out that the site is frequented for marriage proposals.
It’s unclear if Xiao Jing and Xiao Yu communicated after the fiasco or if they ever will.
