Nothing says romance quite like the thought of getting ambushed by a group of balaclava-clad men in the middle of the street and having your face shoved into the pavement.
As crazy as that hypothetical sentence sounds, it was very much a reality for one woman in central Romania.
Alexandra and her boyfriend Vlad were out for a drive in Brasov when they were told to pull over by men wearing face masks standing next to what looked like a police van. She was then ripped from the car…
According to the Daily Mail, the exchange went a little something like this:
"Cop": We're searching your car. [Pulls the woman out.] Do you know this man? Do you know what's in his trunk?
[No response from Alexandra. Cops take her around to the back.]
That's where they find Vlad on bended knee, laughing at his girlfriend's horror-stricken face. He eventually pops the question and she says yes hesistantly.
Man, if that's what romance and love looks like, I have clearly been doing it wrong!
