Trend: Geeky Marriage Proposals

Everyone wants their proposal to be so memorable and creative that it won't be painful to repeat it 5,000 times in a lifetime. That is not always the case, but a few great geeky guys pulled it off this year - making waves in the blogosphere and proving that when it comes to your proposal, geek can be chic.


geeksugar readers meet Bjorn, a Computer Science student at Trinity Western University who proposed to his girlfriend Jenny using a Mac Dashboard widget. Many of you may remember Bjorn's cute geek love story from earlier this year. Jenny detailed the story on her blog saying:

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! 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. He then got on his knees and confessed his true love for me.

Awwwwww. There's another geeky proposal, read more



Rand Fishkin had been wanting to propose to his girlfriend for a while and suddenly realized "this was the girl for me for now and forever." Being a huge NFL fan he figured the best way to do it would be to propose to her on the big game - in front of 130 million viewers. It didn't actually happen that way, but he managed to pull off the "commercial" proposal on her favorite show, Veronica Mars. You can witness Rand's amazingly geeky proposal here.
