A Winnipeg man is proposing to his girlfriend with the virtual eyes of Twitter on him today.
Mike Duerksen is live-tweeting his marriage proposal over the span of 12 hours to his girlfriend, simply referred to as “J.”
“Today, I’m proposing to my girlfriend,” Duerksen said in a tweet at about 8 a.m. on Friday. “I’ll be using the hashtag #MikeProposes. You can follow along!”
Throughout the day, Duerksen — a communications coordinator for a local non-profit organization — will be taking his girlfriend to eight locations that have significance to their relationship.
The day will end with a bonfire at around 8:30 p.m. at the place where Duerksen first asked her out.
“Now, to address a few questions: Yes, I’m aware it’s Friday the 13th. No, she’s not on twitter. Yes, I think she’ll say yes,” Duerksen said.
How will this all turn out? Follow along at #MikeProposes.
UPDATE: Congratulations, Mike!
Folks, she said yes! #MikeProposes
