there are many songs with lyrics like this "I'll walk a thousand miles for you" well In China,there is a man who did that literally,Basically his girlfriend joked that she will marry him if he will walk 500 miles. he took that joke as a challenge to show how her how much he loves her. he even walked more than 500 miles. I found it amazing his determination is hardcore, he endured the cold of the night and heat of the sun just to show his love. this man did this to also get the approval of her parents. source: www.strangenews.biz/guy-walks-1000-miles-in-the-name-of-love/ I was really amazed and speechless, what he did is priceless. he is a real man.

Yeah. I have my shared sacrifices too. It is really nice to be in love cause you'll have such strength to endure everything and anything that comes between you and your heart.

It looks like courteous love in old Europe. Is this guy a lost medieval knight ? He seems mad, but we can do mad things when we are in love. It is comforting to see that this is still possible in the 21st century. I am respectful for what he did !

I have to agree with you on this one, at this modern age only few men would still consider doing things that big just to show how much he love and care for someone. Really inspiring, the lady must be very special and very lucky to have a man that would travel the world just to show how much his love for her.

He defied the odds just to prove he is the man for her, he dont need a mustache to be manly, even if he wears pink he will be the manliest man on earth. Its love money cant buy. its really a refreshing story in this hard times.

That is so sweet though I don't want my husband to do anything that crazy for me. I don't want to see him very tired. That man loves his girlfriend very much indeed. If I am the girl's mother, I would definitely give my approval also.

Nowadays its rare to see someone who will do something that special to prove his love. men just prove love buy buying gifts to the girlfriend. what he give her is more than a necklace or a bouquet of roses.

Oh they should give him the approval. That was amazing. I wonder how it felt for the girl. She must have been really impressed and proud of the person. That was such a long walk and such an incredible to take-all for love.

She is currently asking for her parent's approval, so she already said yes, her parents should approve him for sure. this man loves their daughter truly.

If he did that for love, then I think he is the hero in love. Me I can't, I would rather leave that relationship than to endure that much. In fact I would be thinking of all the negative 'what ifs' that could turn everything impossible.

I felt guilty now because there is no way I will do that. he makes her feel like a princess in a tower, he killed a dragon for her.

That is such a sweet thing to do. It really does say a lot about him. He definitely must love this woman, for him to do this. It really must a great, caring, and loving guy. It's a really amazing story.

Wow that is so romantic. So did the girl said yes to him in the end? She is a lucky girl, the man must be so in love with her.

she already said yes, all he needs is her family's approval. he should pursue a career in ironman competitions.

I am a big romantic and I would like to have a wedding, but I must admit, I wouldn't go that far. I probably would walk 10 miles, though.
