Chewy, chocolate-coated gummy proposal: Viva Pinata love

So we know that wedding proposals take place in MMOs all the time, sweet touching moments of deep connection that occur when real people start to forget that Azeroth is not a real place, as their concept of reality becomes ever more distant. Then come ceremonies that are so nerdy you feel embarrassed when your galpal hauls out the wedding video, and would prefer to avoid watching it because the conflagration of geek is visceral enough that just by watching it, it seems you can almost scent the room's odor discoloring, faintly.

Do videogame proposals result in happy marriages? Only time will tell if they bear some other fruit besides humiliating, awkward nights in when one person just doesn't feel like wearing the elf ears and tension fills the air -- but until then, a good alternative is to propose to your girl in games that are a little bit cuter and mass-appealing.

Such was the idea that a dewy-eyed paramour from Jacksonville, FL had when he decided to take his attempt to convert his lady-love into a gamer to the next logical step -- in Viva Piňata, of all things. Hit the jump to read all about it. 

 
To a few of my friends on here, you know i just bought a 360 and VP for the soul reason of getting my Girl addicted to VP and on her own system.

Well, i decided to propose to her this evening, so i sent the only diamond my digger has ever found, with a note attached asking her to marry me. When she got it (Across the room on the other TV) she giggled and said i was silly. Then i pulled out the real deal, got on a knee and started getting cried upon. She said yes, so next spring we are getting married! Just wanted to shared.
AWWWWWWWW~! Rings at the bottom of the chocolate fondue are so over, not to mention messy and potentially tooth-cracking. I dunno if I'd say "yes" to a guy who's made almost 400 posts on the Piňata Island forums, but what the heck. I'm sure he has his "soul reasons." Viva romance!
