A Portsmouth runner has proposed to his girlfriend by spelling out "Will You Marry Me" using a GPS tracking app.

英国朴茨茅斯一名男子用一款基于卫星定位系统GPS的追踪小程序跑出“你愿意嫁给我吗  ?”字样的路径图向女友求婚 。

Ben Chudley, 28, used a running app to track his progress around the city's streets before posting the route on Facebook.

28岁的本·查德雷跑出这幅“求婚路径图”后将它上传到了Facebook上  。

When he posted it on Tuesday evening, his girlfriend Olivia Abdul saw it and accepted his proposal.

他是周二晚上上传的 ,女友奥莉维亚·阿卜杜尔看到后立即答应了他的求婚  。

Mr Chudley, who has also drawn dinosaurs and cartoon characters in the same way, said the idea was "very me".

查德雷曾经还用跑步追踪软件“画”出过恐龙及其他卡通形象 ,他表示这样的求婚创意完全符合自己的个性  。

He explained he had run about 15 miles (24km) in total, but had the GPS tracking turned on to spell out the lettering over 5.7 miles (9km).

查德雷说他总共跑了15英里(24千米) ,但从5.7英里(9千米)处打开GPS开始跟踪 ,拼出了求婚字样  。

Mr Chudley told his girlfriend he was going out for a run before posting the map on Facebook and returning, with flowers and a ring, to hear her response.

他那天先告诉女友自己去跑步 ,然后把求婚路径图上传到Facebook上  ,并带着鲜花和戒指回家 ,等候女友的回答 。

He admitted posting it publically "could have been very embarrassing if she had said no".

查德雷承认  ,以这种方式公开求婚  ,“如果被女友拒绝则会很尴尬”  。

In the past he has attempted a seahorse, dinosaur and Spongebob Squarepants but said Portsmouth's regular street layout made lettering more straightforward.

之前查德雷曾用同样的方法“画”出过海马、恐龙、海绵宝宝等 ,但是他说朴茨茅斯的街道布局更适合“拼写”字母  。

He added making a wrong turn half way through a run can be "heart breaking" as it means having to start the tracking again.

查德雷还说  ,用这种方式画图 ,半路上拐错一个弯会是件让人“心碎”的事情  ,因为这意味着一切还得重新开始  。
