The idea of confessing your love in public might seem exciting and romantic, but with social network and smartphones lurking everywhere nowadays, a public rejection means you’ll most likely end up on the Internet.
A student in Guangzhou, China, took it to a whole new level: it became a public ceremony to declare his love instead. On 4 September 2016, the unnamed male student planned his confession in the most elaborate way ever: he set up a stage, prepared 999 pomelos and positioned them in a heart shape.
He even had a mic with him, and a crowd slowly emerged.
When the girl, his senior whom he met during university activities, came, he sang a self-composed song for her.
Then he went all-Romeo—first, he said this (oh, yes, right into the mic for everyone to hear): “My Goddess’s favourite fruit is pomelo. So I bought 999 pomelos for her to confess my love. I love you. Even since I know you, I’ve always loved you. Now, right in front of so many people, I’m saying this again: I love you. Can you be my girlfriend?” That escalated fast, eh?
From the images, you can see the crowd taking pictures and cheering. Then the girl, known as Mumu, said, “I don’t like you. I have always seen you as my best friend but your pomelos can stay with me.” After the friendzone-ive sentence, she told the crowd, “Everyone, go ahead and take the pomelos!”

Now, we didn’t know what happened to the guy and Mumu, but we knew that within two minutes, all 999 pomelos were taken away. At least there’re happy endings for others.
