We’re not crying, you’re crying

They pop up on your newsfeed every now and again. Those creative and unique proposals that are so cute and romantic they immediately go viral everyone’s talking about them. And we watch them every single time, knowing full well in advance that it’s going to make us drown in a river of our own tears, and internally scream “WHY CAN’T I FIND LOVE LIKE THAT”.

So if you feel like really sending your tear ducts into overdrive today, we put all the best proposals that have graced the internet over the years and put them all in one place for you.

*SPOILER ALERT*: They all say yes


1). Disneyland Flash Mob Proposal

This was the first viral proposal that made good use of Bruno Mars’s very apt song, “Marry You”. Valerie was strolling through Downtown Disney with her boyfriend Jamin when they happen upon a random flash mob. But how random is it? We wish we were wearing sunglasses like Valerie so we could hide the evidence of our extensive crying session after watching this video for the millionth time.


2). Year-Long Proposal

Dean Smith proposes to his girlfriend Jennifer on her birthday, the 8th of January 2015. However he had decided he was going to propose to her exactly 365 days earlier. No other countdown-themed video will make you weep like this one.


3). Scrubs On-Set Proposal

This is just gets us every time. Imagine working on the set of the scrubs and knowing they were all secretly planning with your partner for an epic proposal involving JD and Dr. Cox?


4).  The One That’s Practically A Movie

You’ll never become more invested in a proposal more than this one. Justin is an actor, producer and director so it’s no surprise that he used his skills and resources to pull out all the stops for the love of his life, Emily. The entire thing is just under half an hour long but we promise you it’s worth it, no other proposal will take you on a journey like this one.

5). Wedding Reception Proposal

This all happened so suddenly and quickly we think we were just as taken aback as the bride-to-be. It was such a simple and beautiful way to propose and no one saw it coming. Props to the bride and groom for being happy to divert the attention away from them on their special day (we admit we probably wouldn’t be capable of such a selfless gesture).


6). The One Where They Reenact Their Relationship…With A Twist

April and Beecher were reenacting their relationship so far to be the setting for a music video. It begins with their first meeting at Regent’s University and other pivotal moments in their relationship. Little does April know that her boyfriend is planning to make another memory in their relationship that she’ll never forget.


7). Chicago Bulls Proposal 

For one Chicago Bulls cheerleader, it was just like any other routine during a game. But little did she know her teammates and fellow “Luvabulls” were planning something really big for her – mid routine!
