The internet may be a pretty depressing place but, sometimes, and I mean sometimes, you stumble across some wholesome content that just needs to be shared. And here I am, sharing this amazing story with you.
What I'm about to tell you is going to be a story that will live through generations- a tale so good that your grandkids will probably be telling their grandkids about it.
A man decided to propose to his girlfriend for an entire month without her knowing... and he's got all of the pictures to prove it. Keep scrolling for some hilariously adorable snaps of a man telling his other half how much he loves her before popping the real question.
Get the tissues ready, guys!
This is Edi Okoro with his girlfriend, Cally Read.
The next dilemma was timing.
Over the course of a month, he decided to document himself hiding the ring that the wanted to propose with.
19. "It's right behind you!"
via: FacebookI can almost hear a pantomime audience screaming this at her.
He even managed to take two selfies!
via: FacebookOne Facebook user commented, saying: "I really love this one!" So do we!
18. "Have you got your keys?"
via: FacebookThis hiding place is genius. When you're running out of your house, you're less likely to notice an engagement ring, right?
17. "Diamonds are a girl's best friend."
via: FacebookEdi bought this ring earlier in the year, hoping that he would be able to propose to his long-term girlfriend. Little did he know that it would take a whole month!
16. "Sleep tight."
via: FacebookPeople just can't get enough. A user commented saying: "This one's my fave."
15. "Open your eyes."
via: FacebookThe funny thing about it is that, even when Cally is awake, she doesn't notice the ring!
14. "While your back was turned..."
via: FacebookThis challenge has provided the internet with so much entertainment.
13. "Wait until she sees these!"
via: FacebookHis facial expressions add to the hilariousness of the pictures!
12. (Special) bike rides.
via: FacebookSo while Cally thought that he was getting the rest of his stuff out of the car, this is what he chose to do instead.
11. "I can't help..."
via: FacebookRather than helping Cally carry her bike up the stairs, Edi watched her... and then did this!
"...Because my hands are full."
via: FacebookCarrying the engagement ring, of course!
10. "Let's get ready for bed."
via: FacebookLittle did she know that he was preparing for something else!
Another fan of the post commented: "Your face is the best part!"
via: FacebookWe agree!
9. "How did she not see this?!"
via: FacebookI mean, talk about hiding in plain sight! It doesn't get any more obvious than this, does it?
8. "I feel like I'm carrying the relationship..."
via: FacebookNow you've got to be kidding me!
But Cally didn't feel a thing!
via: FacebookShe was too busy scrolling through her Instagram feed to take notice.
And it wouldn't be complete without a good ol' selfie, right?
via: FacebookEdi really brings a smile to my face.
7. "Come on, Cally!"
via: FacebookShe's merely a few inches away from something that's going to change her life and she doesn't even know it!
6. "What a view."
via: FacebookCheck out what Edi had to say about the whole situation! He started it off with this: "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!"
5. "What a view." (pt.2)
via: FacebookHe then wrote: "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."
4. "What a view." (pt.3)
via: Facebook"Because of this, I took the ring with me everywhere hoping the 'moment' would arise in line with my spontaneous style."
3. "What can you see?"
via: Facebook"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!"
2. "A day at the beach."
via: Facebook"All these missed opportunities mixed in with the thought - Cally doesn’t know I have the ring!! I should just start documenting these moments!"
And so it continues...
via: Facebook"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!"
1. "In the palm of your hands..."
via: 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!" This picture is our personal favorite!
In the end, Edi did end up popping the question when the moment was right...
He also said that she didn't know about his "library" of photos until he showed her several weeks later!
via: FacebookIt's true what they say, the best things take time. In this case, a month!
