Today, while ice-skating with my girlfriend, I tried to do what they do in the movies and make her gently fall into my arms. Instead she slipped, fell, and hit her head on the ice. FML

You idiot; Only actors and actresses do that. Wait... I've just realized that you're the guy who starred in that movie I saw. Good job in that ice-skating scene. But stick to the movies.

A couple of days later, here on FML:

"Today, I left the hospital after two days. Why was I in there? My boyfriend and I were ice skating, when all of a sudden that son of a bitch tripped me and gave me a concussion. He said he wanted to be 'romantic like in the movies'. FML"

Oh no! You expected a stunt like that could go as perfectly as it does in movies. Yes, maybe prior practice would have been good. OP, you obviously were trying to just be romantic, so hopefully she isn't too upset :)

As someone who's had this happen to them before - guys, please don't. No matter how cute or romantic you think it'll be, before you try that awesome move you saw in a movie, just ask yourself what's the worst that could happen? Then ask yourself how strong and coordinated you are. Then ask yourself how coordinated your girlfriend is. Once you've done all that, then - and only then - may you proceed, at your own risk, with the utmost care and caution.

I agree! I was ice skating with my boyfriend yesterday and slipped, he attempted to catch me fell on top of me and now I have massive bruise from his ice skate. If you have no sense of balance don't try and be chivalrous!
