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). 😊"
Edi even managed to take his show on the road!
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.
Great story to tell their kids about! https://t.co/c26FwfCTki— Christina Renee (@Christina Renee) 1567443160.0
