Trouble in Paradise

Trouble in Paradise

Would you get a load of this guy? Alaskan JR Gates flew his girlfriend, Rachel Phillips, from Juneau to a remote beach in his Cessna where chairs and an empty table awaited them. Why was it empty? Well, Gates hired scuba divers to emerge from the ocean with dry bags full of everything necessary for a romantic dinner, that’s why. Soon after, the divers disappeared back into the depths and the couple was left alone on the beach. Gates chose this moment to propose marriage.

"He says he proposed way out there so that if I said 'no' he would threaten to leave me there without a way home," Phillips (now Gates) says to a reporter.

She was joking, but what was JR really going to do if she declined? Who knows, but if Rachel had any doubts, the pressure would have been on. An elaborate location proposal can be almost as dangerous as the big no-no stadium proposal. The one plus side is that you don’t have 50,000 people waiting to see if you get rejected.

Whether you’ll be proposing during a safari on the Serengeti or on the top of the Eiffel tower, make sure you provide your girl with an easy exit, or at least bring extra cash in case you need your own hotel room. You might not think it’s romantic, but anything’s better than cornering her into a “yes.” [CBC News]

I made a promise to tell my testimony all over the globe once my man come back to me and my husband came just as DR abaka told me when he helped me. I made the right choice to have contacted DR abaka the great spell caster who is capable of helping you solve your problems. My man left me to suffer and i never believed that he will come back to me again but when i contacted DR abaka he assured me that my man will come again. he gave me some list of items to buy but i could not get them in my country and so i sent him the money and he bought the items and prepared the perfect love spell. My husband ran back to me in 3 days time begging for forgiveness THIS IS SO REAL AND GENUINE. NO SCAMS. I was so surprise that the spell worked just as he told me. This is so amazing and i want you to believe because DR abaka is so real and i urge you contact him now on his email so that he can also help you the way he helped me. email is Drabakaspelltemple@gmail.com and you can also contact him with his phone number on whats app +2349063230051 you can also check and contact him on htpp://Drabakaspelltemple.blogspot.com
