- A university student in China confessed to his long-time crush with 999 pomelos plus a song and dance number
- The young woman turned him down as she preferred to remain friends
- Onlookers benefitted from the public display of romance since they were allowed to grab some of the pomelos
The internet has witnessed a variety of gimmicks when it comes to expressing one’s romantic interest – meticulously planned flash mobs, willing accomplices, cinema-worthy production, and many more. A person in love is ready to provide his one hundred percent best just to hear the sweet ‘yes’ from the lucky one, be it a simple confession or a wedding proposal.
Out of all the inspiration that can be found online, one college student from Guangzhou in China considered that using the favorite fruit of his beloved would probably be the best option. In fact, he did not only have the help of a single pomelo, but 999 of it.
This large number of pomelos was formed in the shape of a heart in a crowded shopping center in the area. There, he waited for the arrival of his crush whom he had secretly admired for a year.
When the young man spotted the lady in the crowd, he tried to begin sweeping her off her feet by singing a love song.
Afterwards came the nerve-wracking confession, “I have liked you since the first day that we met, and now I want everyone to know that I like you. Will you be my girlfriend?”
That sounds a lot of effort for only asking someone to be your girlfriend!
Unfortunately, the two were not on the same page as the young woman turned him down – replying that she only sees him as a friend.
However, his long-time crush, identified as Mumu, showed that she appreciated his public display of affection by asking to him leave the fruits behind in a report made by Global Times.
Now what will she do with 999 pomelos? Share it, of course!
A friend of Mumu’s broke the tension by announcing that onlookers could grab some after earning the latter’s permission.
The place was cleared of the fruit in a span of two minutes.
Although the university student ended up having his heart broken, it seems that everyone else was grateful for his bittersweet love confession.
China has housed unique romantic gestures. Recently, a woman proposed to her boyfriend with a house deed and an expensive motorbike. On a different occasion, a man used 840 Rubik’s cubes to create a huge portrait of his crush just to be rejected.
