Domitrovich told BuzzFeed News that on Saturday they wanted to cheer themselves up after a bad week, so they went out to a ~fancy dinner~.

And this happened. "We faked a proposal just to get free dessert," Domitrovich tweeted.

"We just had to act like a couple the entire time," Domitrovich said.

When she went to the bathroom, Nagle told the server that he was going to propose. He asked her to take photos.

Domitrovich said that the restaurant was convinced. "Everyone believed us and everyone clapped," she said.


So many people said the fake proposal was "iconic."

When one person said the fake proposal wasn't worth the size of the dessert, someone responded in STRONG disagreement.

@DatMichCray @bathemeinnudes free food is worth a thousand proposals

And this person was inspired.

@yulissabec @bathemeinnudes 📄✍🏽 takin notes, we r so doing this next time we go out

Domitrovich said the free dessert was "really good."

Her fake fiancé, Nagle, called the whole proposal "really fun."

"We’re thinking about doing it other places too," said Domitrovich. But she mentioned that she's worried Texas restaurants might be on notice.
