When 31-year-old Nafis Joon agreed on touring Facebook headquarters on June 23, 2014 with her boyfriend, 32-year-old Steve Kawalit, she had no idea that that he wanted to propose to her, with the blessings of Facebook’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg and COO Sheryl Sandberg.
Everything started in 2007, when Nafis Joon, a dentist, received a poke from Steve, a digital marketing manager, who was a total stranger to her. After responding positively, Nafis and Steve began chatting online, and then moved to meeting in person in Toronto where they both live. Since then, things became more serious than just a poke.
So it was kind of “logical” for Steve to propose to Nafis at Facebook’s headquarters since this social media engine was the catalyst of their relationship.

Nafis and Steve were very discrete about how they met since it would sound kind of awkward to their entourage. But nowadays online dating leading to more serious relationships has become a fundamental part of a busy and fast life. We can’t but think about how the Internet and social media engines have affected our lives and our relationships. Is it a bad or a good thing? There is no rule that would determine it. Whether you go for the “old live” dating or choose online dating, it’s your commitment that defines your relationship.

The proposal is available on video, on Nafis Joon’s personal FB account. To watch it click here.
