For some, the days leading up to a marriage proposal are stressful and filled with unknowns: Will she (or he!) be surprised? Will she like the ring? What will she say?
For others, it's a time to prank their significant others -- like the brave man below who snapped photos of himself holding the engagement ring in plain sight of his true love and posted them to Reddit. Check them out below:
"The weekend before popping the question, I decided to be ballsy and see just how far I could go with taking pictures of myself with the ring with my girlfriend in the background and not realizing."
"She didn't realize it was right over her head, she was too into watching TV. The best was we were watching one of those bridal shows on TLC, Friday is Bride Day."
"Visiting her at work."
Of course, his girlfriend's annoyance quickly turned to joy when she found out what he was up to. Our man did finally stop taking selfies and got down on one knee.
We love happy endings.
