Man Who Proposed With Virtual Ring Is Either Super Creative or a Cheapskate


Google  proposalIn our digital age, there are wacky web proposals every day. From creating a special web page to posting a Facebook status, there's nothing techtastic that isn't fair game. So I'm not at all surprised that someone's taken a new avenue, Google+, to pop the big question.

The story goes a little something like this: A man named Mihai and his girlfriend Miruna both loved playing the game Crime City on Google+, a multi-player online role-playing game that features "objects" players can purchase. He knew he wanted to propose, and contacted the company behind the game, Funzio, about making a virtual engagement ring his player could "give" to hers. On Christmas Day Miruna logged in, saw the ring, and said yes! Wahooooo!

Is it cute? Well, duh. It's definitely a personal, creative way to propose that meant something special to both Mihai and his fiance. However, is it just me or is this, well, not romantic at all?

Call me old-fashioned, but I think that when a man proposes to a woman, it should be in the flesh. The vibe I get from Mihai's proposal is that it was 100 percent virtual. Who wants to call up their husband-to-be screaming telling them how much they love them? I know that I would rather plant a big fat one right on him then and there.

The new techy proposal fad is cute, I just don't think any way of popping the question is better than getting down on one knee, ring box in hand. To each his own. I'm hoping that at least she got an actual ring under the Christmas tree later that day!

What do you think of the Google+ proposal? Do you think this tech stuff is all just hype?

Reminds me of a story I just saw on the news. A girl's boyfriend proposed over the holidays. She said yes and was so happy and put a pic of the ring on her facebook page. Friends saw it and recognized it as a ring that was stolen from a jewelry store recently. Yes the boyfriend stole it. Not sure whether the engagement is off or not

Deciding who to spend the rest of your life with is highly personal. If it was right for them then it isn't for anyone to judge how romantic it is. But I do do hope the diamond was huge because that is the only way to tell if he really loves her. Lol smh

Aww I think it's cute! And the fact that he actually called the company to have them custom make an object shows how into it he was. Not MY cup of tea but to each their own

Meh, to each, his own...

OR he could be both: creative AND cheap.
