The Rollercoaster Your Heart Goes On Right Before You Propose To Someone
What getting down on bended knee looks like in beats per minute
In our new data visualization, we present the data from a Reddit user who wore a heart rate monitor when building up the courage to propose to his girlfriend. We follow 40 minutes of his heart beat, shortened down to 90 seconds, as he gets ready to pop the question.
If you imagine your heart as a playlist, you could think of it like this: On the walk to get ice cream you’re cruising along playing the Fugees rendition of “No Woman, No Cry”. It’s all good. Once you get that ice cream and you’re sitting and having a nice conversation you’re still feeling pretty casual with Kelis’ “Bossy” playing in your chest. But then the moment approaches. You’re about to ask the question as “I Wanna Love You Forever” by Jessica Simpson appropriately swells up in your core, and when the words finally come out you’re in full blown freak out mode as Guns n’ Roses’ “Welcome To The Jungle” is screaming into your arteries. Then your soulmate says yes. And you can finally relax. So you go find a park bench to sit on and enjoy the moment while “Halo” by Beyoncé internally commemorates the first day of the rest of your life.
Congratulations. You survived “The Jungle”!
