3) The Hunt

Dear Diamond Guy – this is my proposal plan for my girlfriend of 5 years. I’m still saving up to buy the ring but I have it all planned out. A few years ago I got into metal-detecting. She helps out sometimes, but it’s not really her thing. What I’d like to do is, tell her I found a ‘map’ of an old treasure site (and make an old-looking map.)

I’ll plan a day around it, we’ll drive out in the country – and I’ll pretend I wasn’t just here last week preparing things – and we’ll follow the directions and get to ‘x marks the spot.’ When we get to the right place, the metal detector will beep like crazy. We’ll dig a big hole and find an old safe-deposit box. I’ll have her open and inside – a beautiful diamond ring! By this time I’ll be on my knees asking her to marry me, she’ll be crying, and it will all be perfect. 😉

Hope you enjoy!
