Paper proposal rings true
WITH a photo in Friday's Queensland Times proclaiming his love, Aaron Geier left nothing to chance when he proposed to his girlfriend of four years.
Mr Geier said his girlfriend Tara-Louise Gyemore received a big surprise when she opened the paper.
“She was looking in the classifieds and didn't find anything,” Mr Geier said.
“Then she sat down with her work mates and looked through the paper and almost had a heart attack when she saw the photo of me with a sign asking her to marry me.
“The phone has been running hot ever since.”
He said the surprise had been given away by Ms Gyemore's excited father.
“I had to ask her father for permission and he is not good at keeping secrets,” he said.
“It was still a big surprise.”
Currently on leave from training at the RAAF Base at Wagga Wagga, the 24-year-old followed up his initial proposal in the QT's Snap Happy section by getting down on one knee at Brisbane Airport and presenting girlfriend Ms Gyemore with a ring on Friday.
The happy couple have been dating for the past four years after a chance meeting through friends.
“Four years ago I got a lift to a friend's house and she was sitting in the back seat,” Mr Geier said.
“I got in and sat down and the rest is history.
“It all started in Ipswich.”
Mr Geier said he had been building the courage to pop the question for a while.
The couple hope to get married early next year.
