Man secretly proposes to his girlfriend for a month without her realising
There’s a lot of pressure to make your proposal grand and dramatic.
But there’s power in keeping things subtle.
Learn from Edi, who essentially proposed to his girlfriend over the course of a month without her even noticing.
When Edi Okoro decided to propose to his girlfriend, Cally, he knew that if he planned a holiday or a fancy meal she would have ‘clocked on’ immediately.
Edi began to take the engagement ring everywhere he went, so he could pop the question whenever the perfect moment came up.
After a month, that moment never came. Edi was sitting in the living room staring at the ring when Cally almost caught him – which inspired an idea.
Edi realised that all the missed proposal opportunities should be documented. He set about trying to get as many photos of Cally with the ring… without her knowing it was there.
Over the course of a month, Edi snapped pictures of Cally snoozing with the ring in her hand, looking at her phone while Edi displayed the ring behind her, and failing to spot the ring in her jewellery box for two days.
In that way Edi managed to propose for a month – without Cally realising.
After the month was up, Edi popped the question. He hasn’t revealed how he did it yet, but Cally said yes.
Edi’s Facebook post documenting the month-long proposal has since been shared more than 62,000 times, and has been flooded with comments from people admiring his sneaky skills.
Edi wrote on Facebook: ‘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!
‘Here are some of the photos I captured over the space of about a month before I found the right moment (this is a story in its own right).
‘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! ?
‘This made it even more of a challenge because Cally knows this, and the moment I planned a holiday or meal she would have clocked on to what I was about to do.
‘Because of this I took the ring with me everywhere hoping the “moment” would arise in line with my spontaneous style.’
Edi followed up the post with a photo of Cally wearing her ring, writing: ‘So we did end up getting engaged, and no I didn’t get caught ….but how I did it is a story for another time. Stay tuned!
‘She didn’t know about this library until several weeks later … My smile is a “you know nothing Cally Read” smile.’
I can finally put this out there ? … So this was how I proposed to Cally, the other story! ?Those who have gone…
