A boyfriend spent the best part of a month secretly proposing to his girlfriend, before finally popping the question to her face after she failed to take note.
Thirty-year-old Edi Okoro, from Hertfordshire, purchased a ring earlier this year with the purpose to give his girlfriend, 28-year-old Cally Read. But he concluded that he needed to accomplish something more energizing than simply offering it to her and seeing what she said. In this way, he took a load of secret pictures of himself holding the ring in the presence of his fiancée-to-be to see if she’d notice.
As per reported by MailOnline Edi told: “Those who have gone through this (and those who will soon find out), you want to propose in a way that speaks to you as a person and couple. Some plan a flash mob, a fancy meal, or even arrange a marry me sign. I couldn’t do this because ‘Edi doesn’t plan’… I’m a spontaneous improviser.”
Realizing that Cally would twig if he began to plan something, he tried something different – to hilarious effect.
He further added said: “Because of this I took the ring with me everywhere hoping the ‘moment’ would arise in line with my spontaneous style. 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). 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.”
