A strong relationship, based on love and respect, usually ends up with an engagement and marriage, and popping the question remains one of the most exciting moments at this stage of the relationship.
When Edi Okoro realized he wanted to spend his life with his girlfriend Cally Read, he bought the engagement ring but decided to wait for the right moment.
He knew that if he planned a holiday or a fancy meal, she would immediately know what he is up to, so he started taking the engagement ring everywhere he went, so he could pop the question whenever the moment came up.
Yet, the moment never came, and after about a month, while he was sitting in the living room staring at the ring, Cally almost caught him, and this was the inspiration for the idea.
He didn’t just wait anymore, but paraded the ring around her all the time, to check how much he could get away before she noticed it. Edi documented the ring challenge with photos.
He ended up with about 20 photos and two videos, all with Cally oblivious to the fact that her future engagement ring was in the frame with her.
He wrote that his idea was to take as many photos, in more daring scenarios, until he found the perfect moment to propose, or until he got caught, at which point he would propose!
Take a look at these hilarious photos from his unique collection “How I Proposed To Cally”:

He wore the ring first
She had no clue that her boyfriend holds her engagement ring
She might be dreaming of her engagement ring while Edi holds it in front of her
Keep getting better
He brings it always with him
She is conveniently turned the opposite direction
This one is soo close!
He is having too much fun!
She can’t see well without glasses, so he can get the ring very close without her noticing
Too close for comfort!
He is just too happy posing with the ring!
Photos with both of them are the best
He brought it on their vacation
She plays on her phone while he is doing his challenge
In another Facebook post, Edi revealed that he had finally proposed to his girlfriend, and posted a photo of the two together, with a caption:
“We took this photo not long after she said YES. She didn’t know about this library until several weeks later. My smile is a ‘you know nothing Cally Read’ smile.”
So we did end up getting engaged, and no I didn’t get caught 😉…..but how I did it is a story for another time 🤣 stay…

So, this challenge is a pretty clever idea for all those who are planning to do the same, as it bring so much fun before the “I SAID YES” part!
