The love bus, also known as Metro Bus Route number 308

Four years ago, Troy Kleweno spotted Christine Hsieh on the 308 bus. He saw her twice a day, once in the morning on the way to work, and again in the evening on the way home. His co-workers teased him about the "bus girl" he pined after for six months before he finally said hello. That led to a date, and soon they were a couple.

It's only fitting then that when Troy decided that it was time to propose marriage, that he do it on the 308 bus. Watch it here.

Happy Valentine's Day, everybody.

    Ah yes, Valentines Day.  Our annual reminder of how shallow and fickle women are (and their total domination over men).  Can we please get rid of these fake holidays?  I’m not bitter…

    I suppose that once upon a time Valentines day was fun and perhaps romantic. Today it’s just another commercial event dedicated to helping you get rid of your money.

  3. Maybe it’s just me, but public proposals rub me the wrong way.  It puts too much pressure on the proposee.

    re: Maurits

    Hmm, maybe I should re-think my plan to propose to someone in the comments section of The Old New Thing.

    John:  Replacing "are" with "can be", I agree with you.  Valentine’s day !== romance.

    Maurits: You should only propose in public if you’re 100% the person is going to say yes. See for a counterexample.

    If she’s dropping hints that hey, marriage is awesome, have you ever thought about marrying sometime? GEE IT SURE WOULD BE NICE TO BE MARRIED then you’re probably safe to propose in public.

    It’s always important to preface any wedding proposal with an assertion that you’re not a terrorist.
