With so many people coming up with interesting ways to propose now a days, it can be hard to find a way that’s creative and original. That’s why one man decided, why even ask at all?

Edi Okoro purchase the diamond engagement ring for his girlfriend over a month ago. Not knowing how he was going to propose, he decided to leave it up to fate and just carried the ring wherever he and his girlfriend went.

“I took the ring with me everywhere hoping the ‘moment’ would arise in line with my spontaneous style,” he wrote on Facebook, in a post that’s been shared 59,000 times so far.

“After a month or so of waiting for the right moment, I was sitting on the sofa admiring ‘my precious,’ ” he jokingly called the ring, “and it hit me! … I should just start documenting these moments!”

That’s when Edi started taking photos of him with the ring, showing it off when his girlfriend had her back turned, or was sleeping. He figured she would definitely say yes if she caught him the act, so it was a win-win!

“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!” he continued in the post from Aug. 26.

The update included a photo album titled “How I proposed to Cally,” which includes images of Okoro holding the ring just behind her at a store checkout counter, or hiding it in plain sight in her jewelry dish. A few times, he even rests the ring in her hands as she sleeps, and on her back as she fiddles on her iPhone while lying in bed — she, all the while, oblivious.

“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,” he said in the same post. “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,’ ” — as his girlfriend tells him. “I’m a spontaneous improviser.”

On Aug. 31, Okoro confirmed with a photo that he and Read were finally, officially engaged. He declined to share how he actually ended up sealing the deal — “a story for another time,” he says — but says he never did get caught and adds that his now-fiancée didn’t actually learn about his game until “several weeks later.”
