He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not is a playground game I think most little girls play to guess the feelings of their crushes. Unfortunately, it often goes unknown if these feelings are requited.

In this cute short film entitled My Favourite Things by kidswithcrayons, watch as a case of puppy love unfolds. A girl keeps photos of her favorite things in a box that gets stolen by a smitten boy.

Watch the video to see if there is a happily ever after for this romance.

Meme Proposal by Crazy Monkey Studio

It seems like everyone is getting married nowadays.  From traditional to downright bizarre, there are countless ways men ask ladies for their hand.

In this short video by Crazy Monkey Studio, you get front row seats to a one-of-a-kind proposal. Tim coordinated his proposal to Audrey by having four hidden cameras in the restaurant to capture the moment’s emotions perfectly as he used giant cards with memes on them to pop to question from a window.

A meme proposal may not be every girl’s dream, but this short video shows us how to have a sense of humor and be totally romantic all at the same time.

Relationships: Pretty Girls Get Away with Pretty Crazy Behavior

Watch this clip.

I don’t even faithfully watch The Bachelor on ABC, but I had to comment on this ridiculous date.  What woman in her right mind would set up a date that includes a fake wedding, fake vows, fake rings, even a fake minister to see how it feels?  In the real world, a man would be in his car driving off 90 mph before you even uttered the phrase “mock wedding”.  How in the world did Bachelor Ben find the sweet gumption to go through with this and not laugh his buns off?

It just goes to show you: pretty girls can get away with anything.  Case in point: former prostitute Ashley Dupre may have taken down married Gov. Elliot Spitzer a notch or two, but she scored herself a honey of a job as a columnist in the New York Post.

Ladies, I guess there’s something to be said for a spray tan and false eyelashes to help disguise the fact you’re a few crayons shy of a full box.
