You know what’s awesome? Getting engaged. You know what’s even better? Saying “screw it” to doing things the old-fashioned way.
The girlfriend of Redditor Dan Cupples decided to take advantage of an old tradition on Leap Day last month when she put together one seriously impressive scavenger hunt. While planning it out, she jotted notes on pink hearts and made a map of the places around town that held significance in their relationship.
The goal was to help her favorite guy reminisce about all of the great memories they’ve shared before getting down on one knee and asking him a very important question.
Next to a bouquet of roses, Cupples found an envelope containing the first clue.
Off to the gas station he went!
That’s when this guy gave him his heart.
He had a hunch that his girlfriend wanted him to go to Tim Hortons.
And he was right!
Next up was a trip to McDonald’s.
That’s when she really started testing him.
Fortunately, Cupples managed to track down another note in the heart of the forest. That one sent him to a local grocery store.
He came across this hint while checking out.
After spending money on gas, food, and groceries, she let him run to the bank.
To make sure that he was full when the big moment rolled around, she sent Cupples to his favorite pizza joint.
The final clue brought him back to where it all began.
When he arrived, his number one girl was right there waiting for him. That’s when she asked him to be her husband. Cupples wrapped up the Sadie Hawkins-inspired surprise by saying yes!
He plans on wearing the ring on a chain, and he’s going to get her a ring, too. Congrats to the happy couple on their wonderful engagement!

Love isn’t about tiptoeing around social norms and outdated customs. It’s about seizing the perfect moment and asking the person you adore if they’d like to walk through life alongside you.
