This North Dakota Student’s Marriage Proposal is Pretty Adorable

Gavin Becker studies aviation at the University of North Dakota so he’s good at flying.

Published

Gavin Becker proposed to his longtime girlfriend in a most amazing way recently.

The University of North Dakota aviation student took his (now finance) for a flight over a frozen lake in Minnesota where — with the help of his family and a snow blower — a marriage proposal was etched in the snow.

Ed Becker, Gavin’s father, told KARE 11 that it took about 4½ hours to create the 25-foot-tall (7.5-meter-tall) letters and a huge heart.

Could you say no to this?

Becker and his fiancé, Olivia Toft, are both from Minnesota, where they met in high school.

Becker asked Toft to the high school prom by painting a series of rocks with a message along the lines of “Olivia, You Rock… Prom?” so he knew he needed to take his game to the next level for a marriage proposal.

His Dad told KARE 11 that the family was all in to help, and that Gavin’s sister and her boyfriend volunteered to lay in the middle of the heart holding hands.

And yes. She said yes. All this has such a nice, um, ring to it:

Miami of Ohio Student’s Dog Returns After Being Gone for 10 Years

The black lab named Abby was last seen by her family in 2008.

Published

on

A 22-year-old Miami (Ohio) University student last saw her family’s black lab mix named Abby when she was 10-years-old and playing with the dog in her backyard.

Then Abby was gone.

The student’s mother, Debra Suierveld, assumed that the dog had died. Then, last week, they got a phone call from Animal Protectors of Allegheny Valley, Pa. Workers there had been alerted to the presence of a black lab who turned up on a porch in the area. When they noticed the animal had a microchip, they knew they had a great chance of finding her owners.

And that was the Suiervelds.

“We thought she had passed away,” Debra told the Associated Press. “It feels like a part of my kids’ childhood is back, part of our family is back. It’s pretty awesome.”

She immediately called her daughter at school, who broke out in tears.

Wherever Abby had been, the dog was in good health and seemed to remember her home and family — which now includes two other dogs.

“She would lie on the floor and cross her paws, and she remembers my daughter’s commands, and she remembers the commands I taught her,” Debra told CBS Pittsburgh.

Seems like it will be one happy reunion over spring break this year.

Missouri State Student Emails 22 Women with the Same Name After Wrong Tinder Swipe

A modern-day love story.

Published

on

Missouri State University student, Hayden Moll, emailed over 20 women from MSU with the same name after a missed connection on the popular dating app, Tinder.

Moll accidentally swiped left on the app on a woman named “Claudia’s” photo, which typically means the person swiping does not wish to connect with the other. He quickly went to work finding Claudia after realizing his mistake of not swiping right.

He only had two things to go by: that she attended MSU and her name is Claudia.

MSU is a public university and provides school email addresses to the public. Moll used this information to his advantage and emailed 22 women with the name “Claudia” in hopes of finding the one he was looking for.

According to Fox 2 News in St. Louis, Claudia Alley shared screenshots of Moll’s email along with her Tinder profile photo acknowledging that she is the Claudia he had been searching for.

Moll and Alley plan to go on a doughnut date sometime soon.
