The misfortune of a hopeful young man, who proposed to his girlfriend in Dubai Mall, became this week’s trending video on YouTube. The young couple is standing in front of a music band when the man broadcasts his love using a microphone to all shoppers and kneels on one knee to propose to his loved one. He chose this spot for his proposal after meeting her there three months ago.
The video looks romantic but ends miserably when the young lady tries to stop the man from going down on his knee. When he ignores her and proclaims his love for her in front of hundreds of shoppers, the woman rejects the romantic gesture and hits the man on his face with a wooden guitar of one of the musicians. She runs off, leaving the poor man on the floor.
The video reached 2,016,000 viewers in less than five days and created a buzz among social media subscribers.
“If I was in his place I would act like I lost consciousness,” said Mohammed Al-Amer, a YouTube subscriber.
“This is horrible, I hope this romantic guy does not lose faith in love. Maybe the next time he falls in love, he will choose a better person,” said Talal, a Twitter subscriber.
“How can one propose after only knowing her for three months. I don’t blame the girl when she freaked out and hit him, this is beyond crazy,” said Rotana Jameel, a YouTube subscriber.
