Leave it to the Internet to ruin a nice gesture.
Charlotte had their city marathon over the weekend and so did New York City. If you know anything about marathons then you know that there are months of preparation that goes into getting ready for a marathon. If you run a half marathon then you end up running over thirteen miles and if you run a full marathon then you end up running over twenty-six miles!
So that’s where this couple comes in. This man is watching his girlfriend run New York City’s Marathon and when she passes him…he stops her to propose!
SHE SAID YES: A woman who was running in Sunday’s New York City Marathon was at mile 16 when her longtime boyfriend hopped over the barrier and dropped to one knee. She ended the day with a medal around her neck and a ring on her finger. https://t.co/8xbZ6P24RM pic.twitter.com/YizdEJYOhc— CBS Evening News (@CBSEveningNews) November 5, 2018
Not exactly. The Internet did not like his gesture as much as she seemed to.
What is it with dudes needing to make proposing some kind of stunt. IT’S ALREADY SPECIAL, DO IT IN PRIVATE. Especially if YOU HAVEN’T SPENT MONTHS TRAINING FOR A MARATHON. https://t.co/yzL02JMpxq— Paul F. Tompkins (@PFTompkins) November 6, 2018
One man’s “romantic” is another man’s “SHE WAS ON MILE SIXTEEN LET HER FINISH THE FUCKING MARATHON CAN AT LEAST *ONE* THING SHE DOES NOT BE ABOUT *YOU* I GIVE THIS MARRIAGE THREE YEARS TOPS PLEASE GIRLFRIENDS TALK SOME SENSE INTO HER” https://t.co/gIdV2LQ5LU— Ed Solomon (@ed_solomon) November 6, 2018

RED FLAG WARNING- he’s literally slowing you down, girl! Find a man who waits for you at the finish line. https://t.co/2PJyUeORx9— Lauren Reeves (@laurenreeves) November 6, 2018
What do you think about this? If you were running a marathon would you think this is a kind gesture or would you have rather have your person wait at the finish line…or a different time all together? Tweet us your thoughts! @theMRLshow
