Man writes book to propose to girlfriend
He wrote a book in her honor, then popped the question at the library.
We love a creatively sweet proposal story, and this one certainly fits the bill.
Reddit user Ppaul9 uploaded a photo of his proposal to his girlfriend, which took place in the children’s section of a library.

He explained in the photo's caption:
“To propose to my girlfriend, I wrote this book about our relationship, had it illustrated, and printed. I had her stumble across it at the library and read it to me. When she got to the right page I got on my knee and asked if she would marry me. She never saw it coming. What do you think?”
Personally, we think it’s brilliant. The book told the story of a gorilla and a giraffe who fell in love and lived together happily. At the end of the story were the words: “My dearest giraffe, Will you marry me?”

With tears in her eyes, she said yes. The Reddit user further explained that his girlfriend is always on the search for children’s books for her nieces and nephews, so he convinced her to look in the library, where his story was waiting.
Congrats to the wildly happy couple.
