The couple, Xu Minyu and Xiao Ying, were together for four years, but they decided to split after college in order to pursue different career paths — he in civil service and she at a company in Beijing. But what was the breakup ceremony like?
Surrounded by fellow students and a collection of burning candles, Xu Minyu approached his girlfriend with a bouquet of 99 roses, took a knee, and asked to end the relationship. The crowd encouraged Xiao Ying to accept, and after a two-minute silence, she took the flowers and accepted the proposal.
Although a breakup can be traumatic, that doesn’t mean that the love that came before it wasn’t great. Seeing a couple respectfully honoring their connection like this warms our heart.
