There have got to be easier ways to get rejected. And from extensive experience, I can confirm that there definitely are.
Tong Aonan of Shenyang, China wanted to express his romantic interest in his neighbor. So, over a 2 month period, he made an enormous mosaic portrait of her. He composed the design in Photoshop, then executed it in 840 Rubik's Cubes that he purchased for $460.
She said no.
CNN reports that Tong isn't sure what to do with it now:
He says he has no hard feelings towards her. Although he wasn't able to win her heart, he said she was moved by the gift and has accepted it.
"I hope they will stop making personal comments about her (online)."
Tong said that he likes playing with the puzzles in his free time as he doesn't like going out and socializing.
The portrait is still sitting in his home and he says his next "puzzle" is how to move it.
This whole endeavor seems very inefficient. When I was his age, I could have been rejected by 20 women in the same time that he spent getting rejected by one.
