Conceptually I hate proposal videos; they feel emotionally cheap, but moreover, I’m one of those heartless single people who is neither endeared nor disdainful of happy couples.


But something about this extremely cute VR proposal just gets me. Sure, the whole thing “smacks of gender”— the guy asked his soon-to-be fiancé’s parents for permission, the woman needed help using the technology, marriage is a patriarchal structure to begin with. But in spite of that, I am thoroughly endeared. Love is real. Maybe I can even find it too. Yippee!!!!
