- A 29-year-old man's proposal plans were foiled by a thieving thug
- A thief broke into Ethan Frazier's car and stole the ring he wanted to propose with
- The car's window was smashed in and upon witnessing the crime, Frazier started crying
Having to propose to the woman you want to spend the rest of your life with is nerve-wracking enough without other things going wrong the night you planned the special moment.
One man, Ethan Frazier, planned the perfect proposal to his girlfriend, Chanler Phelps. He was going to ask her to be his wife in front of both their families during a dinner at her parents' home last week in Atlanta, United States.
However, when he and Phelps walked to his car, they saw a window was smashed in - someone had broken into his car and stolen several valuables - including the two-carat ring he wanted to propose with.
Briefly.co.za learned Frazier burst into tears at the sight of his car which baffled his girlfriend.
“I’m so confused why he’s crying," she said, adding: "I’m trying to react, trying to find video camera surveillance and he’s sitting on the curb hysterical.”
According to ANC News, when Frazier managed to calm down he told Phelps about his proposal plans that evening.
She said her heart sunk at the revelation and she felt "worse" for him because his plans were ruined.
Frazier said the ring getting stolen was a bummer but it was worse that Phelps found out he wanted to propose under those circumstances.
They filed a police report and went to her parents home as planned - where Frazier went ahead with his proposal, using her mother's ring for the photos.
And, despite knowing what his plans were, Phelps was still surprised by the way he planned the special moment.
