Talk about heartbreakingly romantic. In spring, 2011 at Wuhan University's Cherry Blossom Festival, a young woman climbed barefoot onto the hood of a red Volkswagen, clutching a bouquet of red roses. Resting against the car windshield were two cardboard signs with a message for her boyfriend: "Marry me."
If you're expecting a "yes", followed by a hug and a kiss, try again. The man said no. "The one proposing should be me," a netizen quoted him as saying, "but I don't have anything right now, so I don't dare propose or dare get married."
But he did give a pledge to his disappointed girlfriend.
