Cape Town - A recent study has shown that Disney World Florida is the most romantic place in the entire world to propose.
Let's just repeat that quickly: the most romantic place in THE ENTIRE world.
More romantic than Table Mountain, more romantic than the Eiffel Tower, more romantic than Halong Bay or the Spanish steps or on a gondola in Venice.
How is that even possible?
Well, it all kind of makes sense when you consider the source of the study - an online ticket retailer called FloridaTix (which happens to sell tickets to Disney World Florida and two other theme parks that feature in the top 10 list).
And it makes even more sense when you consider the method - an in-depth search of every proposal video posted to YouTube since 2005.
CNN reports that of the more than 200 000 tallied, 59 700 were filmed at Disney World Florida.
Strangely enough, knowing these facts has set our minds at ease about the state of romance in the world.
So, according to this - ahem - extremely accurate study, these are the top 10 most romantic places in the world to propose:
1. Disney World (Florida) (59 700 uploads)
2. Times Square (New York) (45 500)
3. Central Park (New York) (33 600)
