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.
