Don’t get us wrong, we love nothing more than a great proposal story (even if it’s a little overdone, see: marching bands, flash mobs, etc.). But this? This takes the (wedding) cake for being the worst fate possible to wish upon your bride to be. A Russian businessman faked his own death (pretend blood and everything!) before popping up off the ground and asking his girlfriend to marry him. Yes, really.
Sure enough, she showed up right on time and found him covered in fake blood. A paramedic told her he was dead, and, naturally, she began sobbing.
Well, joke’s on you, good-hearted girlfriend! According to Gawker:
With his mission accomplished, [Alexey] Bykov rose from the dead and proposed to his stunned partner while drenched in “blood.” [Irina] Kolokov said she contemplated killing him “for real this time,” but decided to agree to marry the lunatic instead.
“I wanted her to realise how empty her life would be without me and how life would have no meaning without me,” Bykov said. “I think it worked but I promise it’s the last time.”
Um…not the most romantic thing we’ve ever heard. In fact, that might be the most sociopathic thing we’ve ever heard. We’d wish them “good luck,” but we’re kind of worried for this couple.
