Over the years, people have thought of about a thousand ways to creatively propose to their significant others.

Edi Okoro, however, has found a unique way to repeatedly NOT propose.


In a viral Facebook post, Edi Okoro told the story about how he flaunted the engagement ring right in front of his girlfriend's nose for a month before popping the question.

"I can finally put this out there 😂 ... So this was how I proposed to Cally, the other story! 😅
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 never knew when the actual moment was going to come!

"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! 🙈"
"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!!!"
"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). 😊"

Everywhere Edi's girlfriend went, the ring followed.

Some of these videos were too brazen to believe.


Cally had no idea how close she was to her future.

Even on vacation, Edi got some great shots with the ring.

And just when you thought he couldn't get the ring any closer to her...

Twitter users found the pictures absolutely hilarious.



Well done, Edi, you'll be able to tell the other story of your proposal for years to come!

When they finally do say yes, this Reversible Wedding Countdown & Anniversary Reminder, available here, makes a great gift.

Disciplining children in a way that will make them reflect on their behavior without taking it too far is definitely a difficult line to walk. Some parents have apparently had to get rather creative to get the point across.

It's next to impossible to get through life without regrets. Whether it was a missed opportunity to ask someone out or missing a chance to say goodbye to a loved one before they walked on, missed opportunities are part of life.

We sometimes regret decisions and life choices too, but the missed opportunities always seem to hit the hardest when we look back on them.

Accusations of sexual harassment are serious things, and not tools for manipulating a game, but two Survivor contestants ignored that to make the game go their way.

Elizabeth Beisel and Missy Byrd voiced concerns over touching by another contestant, Dan Spilo, which now appear to have been either greatly exaggerated or completely made up to manipulate other players.

Parents are everything, well good parents, parents who are destined to be parents. Some people really shouldn't be parents. That's for another time to discuss. When we are all born our parental units have such high hopes and plans.... and more often then not, the spawn will choose the adverse path. When you're children choose the adverse path, it has to be harrowing, but, a true parent finds a way, even with disappointment. But that doesn't mean you can't chat about it.

So flying can be a handful and a half. We can't travel with anything but our knickers anymore, well that is what it feels like. Sometimes we forget what we've packed, especially if we've packed in a hurry. It feels like the simplest of necessities is now a HUGE no-no. So once and awhile we're flagged with a thing or two that could raise a few eyebrows. (For no good reason!)
