Young Techie Buys 99 iPhones to Propose to His Girlfriend; She Says No



Posted in: , ,

I guess this young Chinese programmer has 99 problems but getting a girlfriend to say yes to his proposal is not one of them. He bought 99 iPhones to propose to his girlfriend with friends and co-workers around to record the whole takeover on their own phones.

The whole proposal thing, but mostly the phones cost him an arm and a leg. Can someone sing, "money can't buy me love"?

According to Yahoo Tech,

With “Singles’ Day” looming in China (Nov. 11), one man thought the time was right to try to tie the knot with his girlfriend, preventing them both from having to participate in any future 11/11 festivities.

As a keystone of the young programmer’s marriage proposal were 99 iPhones 6’s placed on the ground and arranged in the form of a heart. The setup, as reported by The Nanfang, cost the love-bitten chap two years’ salary (about $82,000).

But that evidently wasn’t enough. She said no.

Well, he may be less a girlfriend, with no upgrade to fiancee to sweeten the deal, but he's now an internet sensation as his friends still shared the photos on Chinese micro-blogging site, Weibo. Take heart.
