“I’m On A Boat” Proposal!

foursquarewedding 20100809 080004 Im On A Boat Proposal!

What happens when two location-based social network geeks use “tips” on foursquare to communicate with one another? This isn’t a trick question. They get married! One proposed to the other by way of technology. Web designer “Geoff G” proposed to his girlfriend Rhea this past Saturday¬†when she used her phone to check in on the last remaining steamboat traversing the Mississipi River through New Orleans. It was a mix of the old and new, pretty romantic as such things go.

Since the two were connected on the service, the tip “RHEA: Will you marry me?” popped up on Rhea’s phone when she checked in on the boat. Of course, she said yes! Both also received the “I’m on a boat” badge on Foursquare for checking in on a boat.
