Guy Proposes To His Girlfriend For A Month Without Her Realising

Guy Proposes To His Girlfriend For A Month Without Her Realising

An intrepid 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 notice.

As far as enterprising and unusual proposals go, this one is pretty out there.

Thirty-year-old Edi Okoro, from Hertfordshire, bought a diamond ring earlier this year for the purpose of eventually giving it to his girlfriend, 28-year-old Cally Read.

However, he decided that he wanted to do something a bit more exciting than simply offering it to her and seeing what she said.

So, 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.

Well, she didn't, but he did eventually pop the question to her and - thankfully, after all of this effort - she said yes.

Edi told MailOnline: "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."

Knowing that Cally would twig if he started to plan something, he tried something different - to hilarious effect.

He 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).

"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."

Eventually, the positions that he'd get the ring into started to escalate.

He continued: "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."

That includes hiding it in plain sight, and even sticking the ring into her hand while she slept.

Eventually - although the exact method remains a secret - he did propose and she agreed. He shared a picture of the ring having arrived at its final destination: on his fiancée's finger.

We'll have to wait to find out what the eventual proposal looked like, but Edi assured everyone it is 'just as good of a story'.
