This is what your heart rate looks like when you propose

This is what your heart rate looks like when you propose

An intrepid Redditor has bravely done what none of us had done before: measure their heart rate while proposing to their partner.

In a post on the ‘data is beautiful’ subreddit, user Sesipikai shared a graph of their heart rate spanning around 40 minutes before and after proposing.

Ever been to a tech festival?

TNW Conference won best European Event 2016 for our festival vibe. See what's in store for 2017.

The results are about what you’d expect; a nervously high heart rate massively jumping when it was time to actually propose (and dropping while eating ice cream).

Sesipikai said in the comments that the heart rate was monitored using a Sports tracker HRM2 belt while visiting the Colosseum in Rome and the data was compiled using Microsoft Excel.
