All this girl wanted was a generic party for her birthday, so her boyfriend made it as generic as possible.
Rock climber Luis Cardona recently asked his girlfriend to marry him, and his proposal totally rocked. He popped the question to Maddy Thorpe, who he met in August 2015, while the two were at Elevation Rock Gym in Logan, Utah. Enlisting the help of photographer India Earl, the two devised a plan. While Maddy was at the top of one of her climbs, Luis’s friends quietly appeared down below where they turned off all the lights and quickly decorated the gym with rose petals and string lights.
“At first Maddy was a little frightened because she was hanging up there in the air in the pitch black!” Luis told HuffPost. “After she realized what was going on she started to cry. Then…I lowered her down and asked [her to marry me].”
Mikaël Theimer is a dedicated photographer. He is currently dating Marion Munez who hates having her picture taken. Unfortunately for Marion, she is Mikaël’s favorite model.
But these two have been together for over six years now. In order to make it work, they both had to learn to compromise.
Mikaël and Marion came up with a kind of agreement when it comes to taking photos. Mikaël can still photograph Marion, but she reserves the right to cover her face or turn her back in protest. This humorous series documents the game of hide-and-seek that developed as a result.
The series first began when Mikaël asked Marion to pose next to a red garage door. She really didn’t feel like it, but finally gave in to his pleading. But of course, she struck the most antisocial pose possible with her hood up, facing the wall. Mikaël thought it was hilarious
“I posted it on my Facebook page saying ‘My girlfriend hates to pose for me’ and everyone seemed to think it was funny, so I thought I’d turn the “my girlfriend hates to pose for me” concept into an ongoing series.” he says.
Forever alone? Fear not — Japanese students from the University of Tsukuba have developed a “girlfriend coat” to keep you company.
The device looks like a normal coat except for its neon-colored belt, which users fasten around the waist. A machine then winds the belt to simulate the feeling of being hugged from behind. To top it all off, users also wear headphones, which blare out stereotypically girlfriend-esque phrases such as “I’m sorry! I’m late!”
