"If you love me, prove it." We have no idea how many times that phrase has been uttered, but what we do know is that people take the challenge seriously. Sure, we've all done outrageous things for the ones we can't be without, but some people REALLY make an effort — and even go as far as to donate a kidney. A kidney! Ahead, hear from seven people on Quora who have done some crazy stupid things (not by force, mind you) in the name of Cupid and have the stories to back it up. Warning: get ready for your mouth to drop.
The Ballsy Proposal
I proposed to a girl who I knew was already engaged in front of her fiancé (talk about big balls, huh . . .). It was the summer of 2010, I was at the University of Houston working as an intern, and she was doing her masters at a different lab in the same university. I would go to her with fake doubts about my computer programs and she would help me solve them. I was having the time of my life. But a few days into the internship, I came to know that she was engaged to marry a guy from the same f*cked up lab. Fast forward to the last day of my internship and I just had to tell her how I felt. I wrote a two-page love letter, bought a card and some flowers(yes, some people would say that was corny, but I was in louvvv). And then I waited for like an hour for her fiancé to leave the lab. As soon as he went, I walked up to her, and that was the moment that the fiancé chose to return. She had already acknowledged my arrival; I could not turn back. Now, I believe that everyone would be peeing in their pants in this situation. However, feeling a great sense of exhilaration, I told her. Everything. For like 15 minutes. To her credit, she listened to me patiently and told me that it was really sweet of me to tell her this and that she was flattered but that she was already engaged. Hell, even the fiancé left us alone for a while. Till date, I respect her for her wonderful response.
