A gamer decided to take his relationship to the next level during a charity gaming event Wednesday night.
This YouTube video spotted by The Daily Dot shows the heartwarming moment when a guy pops the question to his girlfriend while playing Mischief Makers during Awesome Games Done Quick, a gaming marathon that raises money for the Prevent Cancer Foundation and is livestreamed via Twitch.tv.
As the event’s fundraising total was getting close to half a million, the man warns other players that he is going to get sentimental for a bit.
“Last year I was in like a really bad place emotionally or whatever, and I wanted to say that all my friends in the community like really pulled me through that,” he said. “These guys picked me off my feet, but this girl keeps me on my feet, so I just wanted to say that. And also, you know, I love you very much, and I’m going to love you forever. So, I wanted to ask you… if you would marry me?”
She said yes!
