Remember the good old days when you couldn't wait for the guy you loved to propose? Not only would you get a nice diamond ring (hopefully), but you'd get dinner, wine, maybe a beautiful speech? If he was really creative, maybe he'd do it in the mountains, or by the seashore, or he'd have it written in the sky? Well, leave it to guys to muck up a good thing! Nowadays, it's all about scaring the bejezus out of your girlfriend before you pop the question. Remember the dude who faked his own death before proposing?

Maybe this is a guy's way of being more honest? Like, Look, honey, this marriage thing ain't all wine and roses. There's gonna be some times you'll want to crap yourself. Get used to it now. I don't know what's going on. But another guy has decided to go with the Scary Proposal. This will really make you long for the days when the scariest thing that happened during a proposal was that the guy got down on one knee.

Ryan took his girlfriend, Carlie, up into the air for a little plane ride around the city. All goes well at first. They're smiling, they're laughing, they're taking photos and enjoying the sunny day. (Cue horror music.)

Then something happens. The plane seems like it's bouncing. Then Ryan utters those words that no woman ever longs to hear: "Honey, I need you to stay calm."

He tells her that the flight controls aren't responding and that he needs her to read the emergency procedure manual. You can practically see Carlie's life passing before her eyes. The life that is about to be extinguished.

I'll let you watch the video to see what happens next, but let's just say they don't crash and burn. Unless you count marrying this guy. Ha HA! Little joke there. I'm sure Ryan meant no harm. Except to Carlie's psyche.

Seriously, guys, what's up with this new Scary Proposal thing? Are you hoping that the adrenaline rush to a woman's head when you plant the fear of God in her will make her so happy to be alive that she'll say "yes" to anything? What's next? "Honey, I just saw on the news that Russia has launched a nuclear missile in our direction. We all only have minutes to live. Hahahaha. Kidding. How about a threesome?"

Sheesh, man. There's nothing wrong getting on your knee, ya know.

Would you want a proposal that scares the daylights out of you?
