Man Records His Heart Rate While Proposing, Reveals How Nervous Men Actually Get

"His palms are sweaty, knees weak, arms are heavy..."

Not just Eminem's lyrics to Lose Yourself, this line also speaks to the perception of men (or women) about to propose. Redditor sesipikai decided to dig deeper and see how a person's heart rate (in beats per minute) fluctuates during the moment of proposing, so he used himself.

Check out his chart below to see just how up and down.
