Talk about going the extra mile.

BRIAN BYRNE IS an Irish journalist based in Tel Aviv, Israel.

And he recently pulled off the surprise proposal to end all surprise proposals.

Brian has been in a long-distance relationship with his boyfriend, Glenn, who lives in New York City. And you could say that Brian likes Glenn a lot.

As he explains, “Glenn is the type of guy who won’t think you’re weird when you send him videos of you doing entire choreographed dance routines to the Spice Girls.”

Glenn is the type of guy who will listen to you complain for hours on end and still find a way to cheer you up after your hours-long complaining session. Glenn is just, well, wonderful.

So Brian decided to do what any doting boyfriend would do and hopped on a plane from Dublin to New York to propose to Glenn right on his doorstep.

Without telling him he was coming, of course. (Sure then, it wouldn’t be a surprise!)

Byrne documented the entire journey — from boarding the plane to buying an admittedly cheap ring to sending the decoy text.

And the result is completely and utterly heartwarming.
