Five Geeky Marriage Proposals

Geeky Proposals: Awesome or Kinda Lame?

What girl wouldn't want a memorable marriage proposal? But popping the question on a Jumbotron or hiding the ring in a dessert is so 10 years ago. In these days of love 2.0, you gotta be more creative and a lot more tech savvy. Take for example the guy who proposed by sending his now bride-to-be on a romantic scavenger hunt programmed into her iPhone! Or perhaps you could take a cue from the game-loving dude that hacked a video game to surprise his girl, or the Google employee that used Google Street View to propose to his geeky gal.

What do you think about geeky proposals? Are they totally awesome, or do you prefer something a little more subdued?

I think it depends on how much it reflects the couple. But if it were totally random, and not personal, I'd be like "um what?" I like originality though so I'd be open to anything new.

Mmmm ... I don't think it's really romantic. It's just geeky. And I agree with scissorz about the 2.0 part. And if I had to go on a scavenger hunt by myself just to be proposed to I'd be kinda pissed off LOL maybe that's just me

I think it really depends on the person. If it were someone I'd known for a really long time and knew it was coming and WANTED it to come, then yeah, bring on the geeky proposal! But how awkward would it be to be the woman in the picture above, with a huge crowd in front of you and a man waiting for an answer when the answer will be no?

Teehee! I love them. Geeky gamer proposals are my favorites :) Like this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7_HMLvLB7b0 and this http://kotaku.com/gaming/xbox-love/first-in+game-halo-3-marriage-proposal-probably-320536.php But with that said, I'd prefer to be proposed to in the traditional, bended-on-one-knee way. *shrug*

Well, if you're marrying a geeky guy I'd assume you'd have to be pretty geeky yourself.. and I have to admit.. hacking programs to make marriage proposals? Pretty awesome!

Hmm, I guess it's cute for certain people, but I'm more of a traditional romantic than a geek.. Not that geeks are bad though! :P

Depends on what it is, I think. The scavenger hunt is a really cute idea. But I personally wouldn't like the whole sign out in the middle of the road thing. I'm all for a geeky subtle.
