In the 21st century, proposals have gone from a simple expressions of love to epic, romantic gestures that have taken place everywhere from a Disney art show to the tops of a snowy mountain. And while you may think that there's no wrong time or place to ask the love of your life for their hand in marriage, you'd be wrong.
Over the weekend, countless users took to Twitter to clue in the confused about all the locals that aren't ideal for popping the question by using the hashtag #badproposallocations. The list of sites runs the gamut from the boring, like the DMV, to the totally wild, the set of Jerry Springer or Trump's inauguration. Others got decidedly more dark with their suggestions for bad proposal locations. "At the vet while she's putting down her sick dog," one woman joked. "Through a megaphone 1,000 yards away in accordance with your court order," another user tweeted.
While restaurants usually make a lovely setting for a proposal, as some pointed out, not all eateries have romantic charm. "She gave you free guacamole not the key to her heart," one user wrote, explaining why Chipotle was a bad choice.
Some used the hashtag as the chance to share stories of bad propsoals that had personally befallen them. "My husband proposed in our car, in our parking lot, below freezing, after 6 months of hinting at big romantic plans," one woman wrote. Twitter users @AustinBeerGeek claims that he got down on one knee in the middle of a Home Depot parking lot after buying a power tool. Thankfully true love prevails, with this man claiming that he's been married for 22 years, though he and his spouse now shop at Lowe's.
Let this hashtag serve as a cautionary tale to all those lovers who aren't great with romantic gestures!
