Talk about playing the long game...
This bloke spent the last three years slowly proposing to his girlfriend via a series of 14 love letters.
Each letter began with an extra large letter - the first with W, the second with I, the third and fourth with L..... and if you haven't picked up what the remaining 10 letters spell, then maybe just refer to the image below.
We can hear you vomit in your mouths already over how sickly sappy and grossly "romantic" this is.
The dude, Timothy (of course he's a Timothy) said he knew from the moment he met her she was the one, and that's when he started his 3 year long con.
His missus, Catherine, didn't pick up on it - probably because she's not a sociopath that remembers every single little detail about each letter. She explains how she found out about it.
“He sat me down in the living room with all the letters that he had written to me on the table. We read them out one by one reliving the memories of our dating years. After we read all of them he then carefully arranged the letters and asked me to look at them.”
As a nation of unromantic blokes, doesn't it just make you sick? How about next time just writing it on the inside of a Speights bottle cap and ask her to read it out - that's the kiwi way.
