A romantic lakeside at sunset sounds like the perfect proposal location, right? That’s what one man named Ross Bamber thought.
When he went to pop the question to his now-fiancé Geri Ashforth, the ring had other plans.
While standing on a deck that looks out over the lake, Ross went to pull out the ring box before going down on one knee.
But, as he opened the box in true rom-com movie style, you can hear the ring fly out and fall beneath the cracks of the deck.
The UK couple shared the moment they realized the ring was gone in a now-viral TikTok.

“Well, that was expensive,” joked one user.
