Robert Fink proposed to his girlfriend by creating an original video game for her to play.

 

Four or five months might seem like a long time to spend preparing for a proposal, but when one video game developer summoned the courage to ask for his game-loving girlfriend's hand in marriage, he had his work cut out for him. 

 

Exactly how Robert Fink would propose to Angel White (both 24) was an idea the he?d been sitting on for three years, when the two first got together at Portland Art Institute in Oregon. At the time, he'd been watching what he describes as ?an embarrassing amount of proposal videos,? when he came upon a cute video game another guy made for his own girlfriend. The two ideas ? albeit a bit early in the relationship ? clicked. 

 

?I was inspired and had always kept it in the back of my mind," he told NBC News. When the time came, Fink knew, he?d plant his proposal inside video game.

Good damn it, even the geeks are making us look bad now! Between this and movies, real life proposals don't compare.

Sad to say that my marriage proposal to my wife wasn't very fantastic.  It was literally a "hey, want to get married?", "Sure" kind of moment.  lol.
