Let’s be honest. Some romantic gestures, no matter how good the intentions are, can go awry. Just take a look at this marriage proposal on the Today show or this uncomfortable proposal in China. Both are examples of people with good intentions who end up with questionable results. Well it looks like we may have someone else to add to this list.
A Chinese photographer created a new series of photos to declare his strong love for his girlfriend. In each picture, he Photoshopped images of himself into his girlfriend’s childhood photos.
“I want to send my love letter to little you, but without a time machine, the only thing I can do is come into your dream to meet you,” he writes.
The awkward thing about this? The photographer has Photoshopped his current (adult) pictures into the childhood photos. Needless to say, some viewers have found the photos to be uncomfortable.
“While it might seem sweet that he wants to say that he’s been part of his lady friend’s life, the photos are downright creepy! A few photos almost border on pedophilia, particularly the one where he’s looking up her skirt. Keep in mind that his girlfriend is an adult like he is.” says Kotaku writer Eric Jou.
Of course, others disagree with this interpretation. The People’s Daily in China insists that the girlfriend is lucky to have such a romantic boyfriend.
Others have simply laughed at the photos and believe that the photographer simply has a good sense of humor. They argue that the photos are not trying to be romantic or creepy at all, it is simply trying to be funny.
So tell us what you think. Is this photo series romantic, funny, or creepy?
