Woman Takes Two Years To Plan Incredible Proposal For Her BF
You and Bobby have been dating for four years.
You live together, you have a dog together, you regularly talk about spending the rest of your lives together... but he STILL hasn't proposed.
Are you going to wait around like some idle loser who has no say in her own destiny, or are you going to take matters into your own hands and propose to your man?!
I'm not the boss of you or anything, but I say you should take a page out of this badass woman's book and propose to Bobby yourself.
Sonja Lishchynki, creator of the travel blog "Montecristo Travels," is probably the best girlfriend of all time, seeing as she proposed to her boyfriend, Stefan Dumas, in the best way ever.
She went ALL OUT preparing the world's most romantic proposal for her love.
And how long did it take her to plan this epic proposal? Two years. Yep, that's right. TWO years.
And that's on top of NINE years of dating.
To add some perspective, she spent more time planning her engagement than I've ever even spent in a relationship.
To add some more perspective, I had a mullet and headgear when they first started dating.
But enough about me.
She started her proposal planning by tracking down the perfect ring.
Sefan just so happens to be a descendent of Alexandre Dumas. If you have no idea who that guy is, DON'T WORRY. Neither did I.
He's the famous French author who wrote classics like "The Count of Monte Cristo" and "The Three Musketeers." (You know you've made it when they name a candy bar after your book, amiright?!).
So, yeah, kind of a big deal.
The Dumas' were the fancy kind of family that had their very own "signet ring" (a ring with your initials on it).
When the pair had just started dating, Stefan mentioned the ring went missing when they moved to North America. Not having it replaced was one of his biggest life regrets. I bet you have a feeling where this is going...
After doing God-knows-what sort of research to find out every detail about the original ring, Sonja hired a Hungarian jeweler to HAND CRAFT a replica for her man.
It took him 18 months to put the ring together... I guess that explains the whole two years thing.
Once the ring was ready to rock, it was time to choose a place to pop the question.
Sonja decided on Prague. She told Flytographer:
I am obsessed with architecture and how cities have evolved, and Prague is unique in the world. It has managed to escape the grid system that Napoleon implemented pretty much everywhere he went. So, as a result, Prague has this wonderful ability to allow lovers to get lost in its tiny little winding streets that were never designed for cars. So for me, Prague maintains that true sense of what we would call a fairy tale.
Is your heart melting yet? BECAUSE MINE IS.
Next, she hired a photographer to capture the moment.
She told Stefan she was hiring a photographer to just do a fun photoshoot of them with their little pet chihuahua, Montecristo. They had just done this a year before on vacation in Dubrovnik, so he didn't think anything of it.
But, to his total and utter surprise, she got down on one knee with the ring of his dreams and asked him to marry her.
And, you guys, HE SAID YES.
Congratulations, you two. May your marriage be stronger than my headgear.
