STAND DOWN. A man named Stephen just pulled off the most romantic proposal of all time.

We interrupt your morning smart phone scroll to bring you a love story that’ll make you aggressively poke your partner to let them know they’re failing, or feel particularly lonely about your single-ness.

It’s a tale of how a man named Stephen asked a woman named Georgiana to marry him with the most romantic proposal of all time.

By all accounts, Stephen and Georgiana are regular people just like us. Stephen is Australian and Georgiana is a Brit living in Australia. They drink coffee. They take slightly awkward couple selfies. And when in France, they eat croissants.

But thanks to a Twitter thread that’s been shared over 33,000 times at the time of publishing, the ridiculously romantic story of how they got engaged will be forever immortalised on the internet.

On Tuesday, Georgiana posted a Twitter thread titled ‘Paris, a thread’. What followed was an account of how Stephen proposed to her while they were on holiday with a scavenger hunt through the streets of Paris.

It’s text-book romantic – the kind of endeavour that involved sitting down with a ballpoint pen and paper and writing many notes with Stephen’s own hands. Keep scrolling for the full play-by-play of how this epic proposal went down.

1. Stephen said he’s going out for coffee. He did not go out for coffee.

2. As instructed by a handwritten note on floral stationary, Georgiana went to a cafe where a stranger was waiting for her with another note and a cooked breakfast.

3. After a champagne breaky, Georgiana arrived at the Shakespeare Company where a pre-bought book containing another note was waiting for her. Ugh.

4. She was then instructed to walk past Notre Dame to the famous Love Lock Bridge, where yet another handwritten note was waiting for her. This one asked her to hop on the train to meet Stephen in Mont Marte.

5. When Georgiana arrived, she spotted Stephen sitting at a cafe, drawing a sketch. Tres chic.

6. THE SKETCH WAS A PICTURE OF HIM PROPOSING TO HER IN FRONT OF THE EIFFEL TOWER WITH ‘WILL YOU MARRY ME?’ WRITTEN ON TOP.

Georgiana also gave us a look at her engagement ring, which she described as an antique French art nouveau ring with two diamonds clasping a green peridot.

The general consensus from Twitter users is that Stephen and Georgiana’s engagement story is the stuff of romantic comedies staring Tom Hanks.

“Love is real and has pre-purchased carbs and books,” one user wrote.

“Our “proposal” was at an all you can eat Pizza Hut buffet. Who asked who, is still up for debate! You win!” another user commented.

Others simply tagged their partners to subtly hint that this is where the bar for proposals has been set.

Sure, Stephen’s extravagant proposal idea might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but you can’t deny the amount of planning and effort that went into pulling it off.

Well done, Stephen. You did real good.
