Man Proposes to Girlfriend Via Mac Widget - True Story!

There are geek chic geeks, Star Wars geeks and then there are people like Bjorn, a Computer Science student at Trinity Western University who proposed to his girlfriend Jenny using a Mac Dashboard widget. At first I couldn't wrap my mind around the geekiness of the situation - but realized it is actually the cutest, most creative and charming proposal story I've heard in a while. I mean it beats the played out Golden Gate Bridge, Eiffel Tower options. Bjorn's comment: Last night I proposed to Jenny using a Dashboard Widget. Fortunately she still said yes.

Jenny shares her version of the story on her blog, for the best part, just

As we were getting ready to leave he said he wanted to show me something he had been working on, on his computer. He gave me his computer and actually told me his password (no I will NOT repeat it!), which is kind of a big deal because we had an argument about how he never tells me his passwords! At this point, a lot of you have for sure clued into what is going on…me on the other hand, probably due to being sick, I thought nothing of the whole situation. So I got on his computer and there’s a picture of him and me from last year. He then tells me to press F12 like a true Computer science major, and up pops a picture of the ring he’d bought for me, and a little proposal (you can see below). He then got on his knees and confessed his true love for me. After some convincing, I said yes.

Aww, geeklove! I must say, the widget looks great and the fact that the couple had a whole password argument history is both familiar and cute when tied to their engagement story. All the best!

I'd fall for a guy who proposed like that. Except that makes him unavailable. Hmmm...conundrum!
