Steven Kawalit and Nafis Joon met subsequent to she surfacing on his Facebook timeline.
He chose to ‘poke’ her and they ended up in a love affair.
Thereafter Steven proposed to her at the company’s headquarters and finally the couple got engaged.
A couple who fell in love when he ‘poked’ her on Facebook have eventually got engaged after a jolting proposal at the company’s headquarters.
Steven Kawalit fell in love with her now fiancée after she popped up on his timeline on the social networking site in 2007.
He ‘poked’ her and, that small gesture, grew into a love affair that blossomed over the next seven years.
The couple got engaged subsequent to Mr Nawalit taking his lover to the Facebook headquarters in Menlo Park, California, on the pretext that he had won a context for a free tour.
At the company’s headquarters Nafis was jolted when he got down on one knee and popped the question — in front of Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and COO Sheryl Sandberg, and several bystanders.
Mr Nawalit, 32, got down on one knee in the middle of Hacker Square and said: ‘When people ask us how we met, we say “mutual friends”. And today you meet your mutual friends.
‘Nafis, I love you very much. You’re my best friend. Will you marry me?’
The bystanders leapt in delight, when they heard her saying ‘Yes’.
Mr Kawalit told ABC News: ‘It was funny how I jumped on the social network to catch up with long-lost friends and ended up meeting the love of my life.’
A month back in another sensational plan, firefigthter Jesse Gonzalez gave his police officer girlfriend the shock of a lifetime —— he proposed to her at a fake house fire.
Supported by two Houston Fire Department stations and the Houston Police Department, Mr Gonzalez surfaced like a hero from within a smouldering garage donning full fire-gear, to get down on one knee to the sounds of Bruno Mars’ Marry Me.
