The Internet is going crazy over this woman’s reaction to a proposal that happened right in front of her. Over the weekend, Jessica Rodriguez proposed to her girlfriend Chelsea Miller at the Art Institute of Chicago, and a photo of the incident caught an onlooker’s delighted reaction. Though honestly, if you don’t look like this when you see a successful proposal there’s something wrong with you.
Even Fifty Shades of Grey author E.L. James commented.
Commenters fawned over the delight of the “old” woman (she looks 55, tops), probably because at the face of an administration that continues to amass a team of anti-LGBT politicians, public declarations of same-sex love and any appreciation they get feel particularly special. That’s where we are: Being happy that other people are happy is a viral-able occurrence.
Anyway, the newly engaged Jessica Rodriguez hopes to leverage their newfound fame.
