You guys are all fucking stupid. I can guarantee I play more pokemon than most of you here but I'm not so dense as to be unable to understand the difference between a serious matter and humor. Proposing to someone should not be turned into a joke. This is how they will always remember their matrimonial relationship beginning. Wouldn't a romantic sentiment be a lot more special than a stupid joke that isn't all that funny to begin with?
how the bloody hell is pokemon NERDY? stupid, childish, boring, horrible music, yes Nerdy? NO! Doctor Who is nerdy. Pokemon is not. I wouldn't mind if my boyfriend proposed to me that way if he smiled after and treated it like a joke.... but if he SERIOUSLY proposed to me like that I wouldn't be too impressed I'm all for creative ways to propose to smeone but this is just plain dumb and even a bit creepy a marriage proposal is not meant to be a parody of a kids series! Assuming he doesn't change his mind about that 'wanting to stay with her for the rest of his life' (seeing as 40% of marriages now end in divorce), he still could have proposed to her in a way that would make her FEEL that way I know some people might like to be proposed to in such a weird way, but she obviously doesn't and he should know her well enough by now (if he wants to marry her) to understand she's not that kind of person and isn't going to be impressed by such immaturity.
Unless pokemon has some special significance to your relationship, like if you met at a pokemon convention, it seems like he wasn't taking his proposal very seriously. To be fair, he probably didn't immediately opt for the comedy proposal, he thought it would be risky, but romantic if it worked out. Yes Doctor who is nerdy, #439, but it's awesome. I love it because I am a nerd, and to me that's not really an insult.
154- I promise you i play far less pokemon than you, however if it was my guy, I would love it. ash and pikachu are best friends that have each others backs forever. and obviously this guy is going to love all of her nerdiness. she should be proud to have such and awesome bf. I hope she said yea or she is missing out. he found a great way to express his feelings and she's to much of a bitch to see it.
thank you! I started feeling like I was crazy for thinking like OP... You know what guys... If Pokemon was kind of "their thing", I would get why he'd propose like that and it would really be funny and cute. But if OP's not that much of a Pokemon fan and her bf just blurts that out, I can get why she's angry?? When he's proposing to her he should put a little thought into a it and do something that she will like and that will make her feel loved and special. (Same goes the other way round...)
can everyone please stop to say this is cute and nerdy and idk? seriously I know it's a cool idea, but she obviously doesn't like it if she posted it here. and no, she doesn't suck for not liking pokemon like many wrote. wtf is wrong with having an opinion. the only way this proposal could be great is if both sides love pokemon. we can see the girl is disappointed - so no, she doesn't love pokemon that much. this is actually a pretty douchy move. he obviously did what he thought would be cool and considerated his interests but he didn't considerate her at all or her interests. just because you think this is cute and funny doesn't mean everyone will and that doesn't mean you shouldn't be considerate of them too.
i hope you said yes. your boyfriend is way too awesome for you. and this story belongs on MLIA.
I agree with #7...how is it an FML...unless he is like 20 or 30 something still watching Pokemon....I think its cute...hope ya said yes....sounds like its gonna be the wedding of the year...and just think you can save on gifts for your friends....just buy packs of pokemon cards....
