Total Jerk Proposes to Girlfriend After Faking His Own Death

Say What!? 28

engagement ringAnyone in a long-term relationship or marriage would agree that, hands down, the one thing you need to keep love alive is trust. Sure, couples who don't trust one another get engaged (I'm looking at you, Jenelle Evans and Gary Head), but we see how well that works out! Sadly, it happens all the time. Just look at this wealthy Russian businessman's crazy marriage proposal, which went down in an incredibly bizarre, distrusting way. He actually faked his own death to test her love before popping the Q. Uh, yeah.

The Sun reports that Alexey Bykov went so far as to hire a movie director, stuntmen, makeup artists, and even a script writer to stage a phony car crash. He then told his girlfriend, Irena Kolokov, to meet him at the crash site so she would be convinced he was dead.

Irena told the newspaper:

We'd arranged to meet at a certain place but when I arrived there were mangled cars everywhere, ambulances, smoke, and carnage. Then when I saw Alexey covered in blood lying in the road, a paramedic told me he was dead and I just broke down in tears.

Wow, can you even imagine?! And that's when the "dead" boyfriend got up and asked Irena to marry him, all while covered in fake blood. Apparently, Irena was "so cross that I almost killed him again, but for real this time." Who could blame her?! Who in their right mind would do something like this to their significant other?

Alexey explained himself by saying:

I wanted her to realize how empty her life would be without me and how life would have no meaning without me. I think it worked – but I promise it's the last time.

What a megalomaniac. It sounds just plain sick to me to do this to someone you love ... I wonder, what if she was so shocked that she hadn't broken down in tears? Would he have nixed the proposal? So crazy!

In the end, Irena did decide she can't live without Alexey, and she said yes. But after this, how could she trust him not to toy with her emotions so profoundly ever again? I sure hope she genuinely appreciates her fiance's flair for the dramatic ... and has a handle on how to handle his obviously intense insecurities!

How absurd is this? Would you say yes if your S.O. did this?!

WTF?! What kind of crazy person would even come up with this hairbrained scheme? I would never forgive my bf if he did that to me.

Run girl run!!! Whatever you do - do not marry this jerk. He sounds like an abusive control freak just waiting to happen.

Maybe their relationship was like that. I'm sure she was upset, but it's better than the old played out- dinner, ring,  man on knee...

That is controlling and manipulative.  Not a good omen for a healthy relationship.
