Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys is one of Twitch’s top broadcasters, known for her popular streams and humorous interactions with fans — one of whom approached her with a unique “marriage” proposal.
While it’s no secret that Pokimane boasts a massive fanbase, some of her viewers take their enthusiasm to the next level, as seen in the case of a fan during a May 5 broadcast.
Anys was in the middle of speaking to her chat when she received a two dollar donation, which had a completely unexpected “proposal” for the streamer in its accompanying message.
“It really is time, Poki,” the fan wrote. “Chat, shut up for a second. This is important. Will you marry me on Minecraft? I own three cows, twelve chickens, two cats, and one dog. I’m just a simple farmer, but I have big dreams. You can finally retire from being a Twitch e-girl.”
Although visibly surprised by the fan’s message at first, it seems that Anys was taken by their “simple farmer with big dreams” bit, letting out a lengthy, “Awww!”
“Stop, that’s so cute!” she exclaimed, breaking into a laugh. “Finally!”
“Your ASMR is relaxing,” the donation message continued. “Any new ones coming?”
“Thank you!” Pokimane responded to the donator. “I don’t know! I am very, very proud of the ASMR collection that I’ve made so far. Maybe someday I’ll get a real feel for doing something else.”
Funnily enough, this isn’t the first time the streamer has been met with a similar sort of “proposal” : the star was also approached by a fan during TwitchCon 2019, who asked her to be his girlfriend with a note during a meet-and-greet photoshoot.
Unfortunately, she shot down his big dreams, writing back, “Don’t ask people out at TwitchCon.”

While being put on the spot in front of hundreds of people could be nerve-wracking for anyone, Pokimane’s responses to these humorous “proposals” shows that she knows how to handle unexpected confessions — even if they are just practical jokes.
