Dudes seem to have an invisible cord that connects them, in an innate and intimate manner, to technology. This affinity is almost a universal truth, and the few exceptions are not entirely off the techno-hook; since obviously, there is no way to escape the clutches of technology, right?
From tinkering with gadgets and whatnot, to creation of minor garage inventions, the male species has done things to technology the same way that technology has done things to them. And in certain instances, this love affair between men and technology has even ventured out into other areas of manly practices; take for example wedding proposals.
Here are four fun and quirky ways that men asked the "will-you-marry-me-question" with a little help from technology.

2. Video Games
Most men are typically taken by video games. There’s just something otherworldly about this tandem, and some had even taken this to a higher level by using video games to propose to their girlfriends.
A sweet hacker once found a way to spell out “Lisa…will you marry me?” using the gold coins from the Super Mario game. We can only hope he didn’t end up with a virtual Princess Toadstool.
Another dude hacked the Chrono Trigger game for the very same purpose. Meanwhile, someone who didn’t want to exert additional effort, and skip the game hacking part, had instead maximized LittleBigPlanet’s level design function in order to pop his A-game query.
3. Social Media
What’s the purpose of social media if one can’t use it to publicize his undying love and devotion to his partner, and to announce that he’s finally willing to spend the rest of his life (should the marriage work) with her? This is the exact point of many netizens that have opted to use Facebook and Twitter to propose to their loved ones.
And though this isn’t exactly the most romantic and ingenious proposal approach, takers still abound.
