Erik Karlsson’s girlfriend Melinda Currey said yes to him in October of 2016. He proposed by putting the ring inside a pizza box. Yes. You read that right. He put the ring…. inside a pizza. I don’t exactly understand how this worked, but she found it charming, of course. She called it a dream proposal and calls him a dream guy. So she opened the pizza box and then saw the ring in the center of the pizza… and still said yes. That seems like the most pragmatic strategy. It worked. Did the ends justify the means? Clearly they did. And honestly, who the hell am I to judge. I got engaged on a fantasy baseball podcast. I pass no judgement.
Regardless, Erik Karlsson’s girlfriend is young and gorgeous. She graduated from Carleton University in Ottawa, and she also went to high school there. She’s a classic Canadian beauty with a killer sense of humor. I read lots of her jokes on social media, and they’re legitimately funny. I don’t know if she came up with them all, but I give props for her curation if nothing else. She gives advice about love: if you love somone, set them free, and if they don’t come back, text them when you’re drunk.
In April of 2015, Erik Karlsson’s girlfriend traveled to Tokyo, Japan. I’m jealous whenever I see someone travels there. She did in fact go with Erik, and they visited various tourist sights like Buddhist temples and busy city corners. They traveled to Bali shortly after. If you’re looking for a tropical wonderland, Bali is it. Melinda seems to obsessively focus on pizza throughout her social media posts. She makes jokes about pizza, poses with pizza, and generally loves it as a food. How does she eat so much pizza and stay so thin? She must work out like a machine!
