- A local woman certainly has no regrets after rejecting one seriously romantic girlfriend proposal
- The passionate man had prepared a stunning beach picnic with snacks and gifts fit only for his future bae
- The woman's rejection came as a surprise to many social media users, but there's an unexpected ending to this story!
A local woman is shaking things up online after sharing the cringe-worthy story of how she turned down a man's girlfriend proposal. The sweet man had prepared a hilltop picnic overlooking beach waters, but even that couldn't land him this choosy woman.
Heading to her Twitter account, @sianfergs shared her story. The lucky lady had been seeing her guy for some time when the two decided to spend the day picnicking near the beach in Simon's Town:
"He gave me flowers and set up up a picnic for us with all my favourite snacks. Then he asked me to be his girlfriend. I said no tho," she writes in part.
@sianfergs goes on to shares beautiful pictures from the disastrous day. An idyllic picnic table is set out near the coastline, decked out with wine, bread and the pretty pink roses she'd been offered.
But there's a twist to the story as the woman reveals she did in fact say yes later, her man just needed a little lesson in patience.
"We eventually did get together, I just was not ready to say yes at the time! (And he was very patient)."
Social media users were definitely all the way here for this juicy story. Many can't imagine what the next episode of this saga-filled relationship will bring.

"Was it the bread that put you off?"
"Props to this dude for putting himself out there like this. I hope he took it well and y'all had a nice picnic anyway."
"I was not expecting that plot twist."
"But did he take you to see the penguins???? That would have sealed the deal fo’ sho’."
"Understandable, I would’ve probs done the same."
"Had us in the first half, not gonna lie."

The Twitter flex certainly back-fired as many have passionately insinuated that he may be projecting a false lifestyle.
The controversial post was shared by Twitter user, @Ndi_Muvenda_ who shared a pic of the new cellphone along with this caption:
"Yesterday I took my girlfriend to iStore and bought her a new iPhone," along with a red heart emoji and a big black tick.
It's clear the young man felt immense pride for managing to afford the expensive purchase. The image displays his girlfriend and her freshly manicured hands holding the pricey iPhone as his foot peeps into the frame from the right-hand corner.
Social media users, however, were not as impressed by the phone. Many noticed the man had shared his post from a much cheaper Android device, accusing him of living out of his means to impress the partner.
Still, others felt the post was completely false and felt they had seen the exact images before.

"And wena you are Tweeting from Android."
"We've seen this tweet before."
@LuckyNzima4 mockingly wrote:
"That time that tweet comes from Samsung J1. I'm proud of you bro indoda must sacrifice his happiness for his queen."
"I hope you still have your sweater."
"Huh!!!I saw this somewhere before."
"But you are busy nabo android ton tom."
@Que_DBN definitely had enough, saying:
"Stop it bro!"
