How to propose to a fellow nerd

January 11, 2014

1. Reserve a conference room at her workplace.

2. Surprise her with a PowerPoint presentation about your relationship.





3. Sing her an original love song full of allusions to data analysis.

4. Present a concluding slide.


5. Ask her to marry you.

6. Upon receiving the hoped-for answer, escort her out of the conference room and smile for the camera.

  1. So happy for you both! Thanks for sharing your proposal–clever and on the mark for a great match.

  2. Wonderful! Fantastic! And 5 other superlatives!
    PS. No 2 x 2 tables for the epidemiologists like me?

  3. How can one say no after a song like that??? Congratulations to you both!

  4. LZ is clearly a very lucky lady, though I wouldn’t have tried your approach on my (non-nerd) wife. Especially since I can’t sing. Congratulations!

  5. GC and LZ,

    What great news!!!!!

    I agree with commenter number 3. 🙂

    Have you set a date?

    • Thanks, everyone! Yes, Bob — June 19th. (Thursday is the new Saturday!)
