So because every single girl is hating herself with Valentine’s Day coming up I decided to compile a list of TV and movie marriage proposals that will make you grab for a box of tissues while simultaneously make you feel hopeful for the future of your love life. Because, let’s be honest, who isn’t a hopeless romantic?
Lorelai and Max on Gilmore Girls
Even though everyone was always rooting for Luke, no one could deny that the grand gesture of one thousand yellow daisies was anything less than exceptional on Max’s part.
Blair and Chuck on Gossip Girl
