A Guy Who Met His Fiancé On Twitter Came Up With The Perfect Twitter Proposal

So tweet.

Posted on

Dalmia told BuzzFeed News that she is "social media obsessed" and has found many professional connections through Twitter that have landed her multiple internships.

"I also have a knack of finding social media contests on Twitter and have won tickets and prizes to almost every local concert and sporting event I can think of," she said.

So it just made sense that she would find love on the site too, Dalmia added.

"I have won close to $10,000 in prizes on Twitter, so people often joke that I 'won' Anuj on there," she said.

Dalmia said that people usually don't get it when the couple explains how they met, and usually ask if Twitter has a dating component.

"They seem to be very confused, even those that are pros on Twitter," she said. "When we explain how we met on accident, they are so shocked to find that just one tweet led to such a strong friendship and lasting love."

He created a "Twitter scavenger hunt" for his bride-to-be that led her through different areas of the city that were special to them. Her friends and sister gave her clues along the way.

He of course live-tweeted the clues, with the hashtag #SumitaFindAnuj.

"The tweet clues resembled an actual tweet so perfectly and they were already time stamped with the exact time I was to receive each clue throughout the day," Dalmia said.

After revisiting their favorite places, Dalmia eventually got a clue that led her to a horse-and-carriage ride. She was dropped off at a hotel, where she was given an outfit to change into and told to go up to the hotel's helipad...

Change into this dress & take the elevator all the way up. To me you are very near; I’m very excited you’re almost here. #SumitaFindAnuj

So tweet!

Dalmia said the proposal was "perfect," and especially unique to their love story.

"It was truly a magical day," she said.
