I asked total strangers to marry me!!


holy crap!! yesterday I was at trafalger square in london practicing asking for directions and there was this pretty girl on the steps. I went over to her and got down on one knee and said "mi lady, may i have your hand in marriage?"

she just laughed, so i quickly said "just kidding, my friend just dared me to do that" and ran for it

then I was walking to Covent Garden and I saw this lovely girl in a blue dress standing by the wall handing out some advertisements so I went to her and said "I've come here to look for a wife, will you marry me?" and she laughed and said shes already with someone and ran inside the shop.

then I kept walking and saw this spanish girl walking by , and just as she did, i turned and straight out said "will you marry me?!" and she smirked and said "no thanks"

hahaha

ive never done this before!! crazy stuff

Kind of like shock therapy for SA.
Glad no one called the cops on you though!

Every form of happiness is private. Our greatest memories are personal, self-motivated, not to be touched. The things which are sacred or precious to us are the things we withdraw from promiscuous sharing. -- Ayn Rand

The true use of speech is not so much to express our wants as to conceal them. -- Oliver Goldsmith


Experience is the worst teacher; it gives the test before presenting the lesson. -- Vernon Law

Wow, I can never do that, lol. Then again it's weird for a girl to approach that move.

I'm surprised they turned you down. Who can resist a Canadian?
OK, so they didn't so much turn you down as just laugh. Still, nice work, pal.
