Heartbeat during marriage proposal

Dec 12, 2014

The moments leading up to a marriage proposal can be both exciting and nerve-racking. Will s/he say yes? What if I fumble up the words? Am I walking towards a disaster? Then it happens, everything blurs together, and the moment makes its way back to normal.

Reddit user sesipikai tracked his proposal during a trip to Italy. He happened to be wearing a heart rate belt, and you can see the rise and fall of beats per minute leading up to the question.

Walk. Ask. She says yes. Bask in the happiness. Find a bench.

Ah, the little bits of narrative totally make the chart.
