There’s nothing like eavesdropping on somebody else’s romance, and this week, passersby at Raleigh Durham International Airport got to do just that, thanks to Khaled Omar and his elaborate proposal. Candice Givens was getting off a plane with her mother, coming home from a trip to Dallas, when she was met by a crowd of people and large balloons that spelled out ‘Will you marry me?’ Right there in the middle of the terminal, Omar got down on one knee in a heart created with rose petals and proposed to Givens, who obviously said yes through a bucket of tears. Oh, but the party wasn’t over. Southwest Airlines followed with a toast in the middle of the terminal and gifted the couple a voucher for a free flight. Take heed, men: a little bit of creativity does pay off.
