Now, finding love is something most of us hope for.
But the searching can make it seem like it's basically an impossibility. It can be a jungle out there, folks!
Dating is no joke.
In fact, romantic life can often just feel like a string of missed opportunities as you search and search for "the one."
Looking for love can be exhausting.
But once you find it, for many of us, it really does make every part of life seem a little bit brighter.
Being in a happy relationship is many people's aim.
Finding the person who's a perfect fit, and that you can stay committed to for a long time, can make it feel like your life is moving in the right direction.
Plus, PDAs are nice.
Having someone to hug and kiss (and who hugs and kisses you right back) is a pretty sweet feeling.
Some couples wish to take their commitment a step further.
Becoming engaged to be married is one way that many choose to express the seriousness of their love for one another.
Many of us have marriage in our life plan.
And for many women in particular, the marriage fantasy starts right at the beginning - with the proposal of their dreams.
Which can put a lot of pressure on the situation.
If the proposal is supposed to set the trend for how the wedding (and even the marriage) will go, many want it to be absolutely perfect.
Proposals have become a pretty big deal.
And that can mean that there seems to be more than just 2 people involved. In fact, getting engaged has become a pretty public event in most people's lives.
And getting the proposal right is a big deal.
In fact, many ascribe it with meaning about the potential future of a relationship and marriage ...
Usually, proposals follow one rather conventional route.
Getting down on one knee, proffering a diamond, you know the drill.
It's kind of a big deal.
But, it doesn't always go to plan.
As one man found out after he proposed to his girlfriend in a busy mall and was rejected...
It's safe to say the video has given the internet a lot to talk about.
TikTok user, matt10yo, posted the video in which he proposes.
At the beginning of the video, he wrote: "I proposed to my girlfriend of three years and this is what happened."
It then shows him, wearing a bright green Ben 10 jacket, getting down on one knee in the Menlo Park Mall food court in New Jersey.
His girlfriend swiftly says no to his proposal and walks away...
Leaving him on the ground and onlookers shocked.
It is unconfirmed if the proposal is prank.
Though we could have a good guess...
