Chinese programmer spends two years' annual salary on iPhone 6s,

arranges them in a heart and asks girlfriend to marry him – it doesn't

go well

It's Singles Day in China on Tuesday, a type of Valentine's Day that

sees people celebrate their single status by buying billions of

dollars worth of items online.

But one Chinese programmer was so sick of being single that he spent

more than £50,000 buying 99 iPhone 6s to propose to his girlfriend.

The problem is, she said no.

The young Guagzhou tech worker spent 500,000 yuan (£51,543) on Apple

(Swiss: AAPL.SW- news) 's latest gadget, the equivalent of more than

17 years the average worker's salary, according to CNN.

He carefully arranged the iPhones into the shape of a heart, and even

had some money left over to buy a bunch of flowers. So far, so good,


Not quite. In front of his colleagues and friends, she turned him

down, with the resulting photos emerging on the Weibo social network .

If you're looking for a cheap iPhone 6, you know who to call.
