One guy recently went viral for the cute and rather daring way he proposed to his girlfriend. Instead of doing a flash mob or some other elaborate public trick, he ‘proposed’ to her throughout the month – but she didn’t even know! LOL.
When 30-year-old Edi Okoro, from Herefordshire in England, decided it was time to pop the big question, he bought his girlfriend Cally Read a lovely diamond ring.
As a spontaneous person, he knows he can’t plan a big proposal without Cally taking notice. Thus, he took his time in popping the big question, choosing to find the right moment to do it.
“After a month or so of waiting for the right moment, I was sitting on the sofa admiring “my precious” (yes I became very attached to this ring by this point) Cally almost caught me staring at the ring, and it hit me!….All these missed opportunities mixed in with the thought – Cally doesn’t know I have the ring!! I should just start documenting these moments!” Edi shared on his Facebook account.
“This escalated quickly into trying to get as many photos of Cally with the ring without her knowing!…. Yes she had no idea what I was doing in these photos!!!”
He decided to risk everything by putting the ring in the most daring places and took photos with Cally while holding the ring or putting it cleverly at a spot she won’t be able to see.
What’s cute is that Cally is near-sighted and could not see clearly without her glasses. He made use of that fact by taking a photo of the ring quite exposed while Cally wasn’t wearing her glass – and she really had no idea that he was already making these mini ‘proposals’.
“The idea was to take as many photos, in more daring scenarios, until I found the perfect moment to propose, or until I got caught, at which point I would propose!” Edi shared.
The daring guy even put the ring on Cally’s back while she was busy on her phone. There was even a time he put it directly on her hand, but she was asleep then.
The most daring one, perhaps, was when he put it on top of the telescope she was using while they were out on a trip. Whew! That one was really close!
But Cally never found out his silly antics – and he was able to propose properly without getting caught, Edi proudly shared. However, he has yet to tell the story of the actual proposal. Still, though Cally said “yes” to that proposal, netizens truly enjoyed the ‘proposals’ he did before he finally popped the big question for real.
