Listen up all of you – you just might learn a thing or two about romance from geeks! In keeping with the theme of the season – it’s the love month, in case you’ve overlooked that tiny fact – let’s take a look at some of the geekiest marriage proposals ever. Never mind that they’re geeky – they worked!
Wired.com recently did their own feature with 5 Geeky Marriage Proposals That Worked. This one’s my favorite: the hacked version of Bejeweled. Bernie programmed his own version of Bejeweled, which was his girlfriend’s favorite game. What happens in this game was that when a player reaches a certain score, the screen clears up and the ring comes down instead – obviously a marriage proposal. Whether Tammy, the girlfriend, was impressed with Bernie’s programming skills or the idea of marriage, she said YES.
For Twitter fanatics, here is another great proposal by Sean Bonner to Tara Brown. Take a look at the screenshot to see for yourself. I don’t know about you guys but this is awfully cute, isn’t it?
Here’s another one on Twitter. The proposal:
Ahuh – and who said that only men give proposals?
Last, but not the least, is the proposal to Kathleen Fent. This one took all of 15 minutes to get a yes, but get a yes it did!
And who said geeks were boring? Eat your words, people. These geeks have proven that proposing marriage the good old fashioned way doesn’t come close to what they can come up with with a little help from their friends (Twitter, Nintendo DS, and whatever other gadget or technology you prefer.)
