If you don't even know where your significant other lives, are you really ready to walk down the aisle with that person?

Thomas Edwards, 22, might be thinking about that point behind bars after he was arrested for supposedly attempting to propose in the nude but ended up at the wrong house.

Homeowners in Casselberry, near Orlando, called police to inform them that a naked man was on their back patio Sunday night, according to Click Orlando. Edwards explained that his girlfriend had told him to show up there, and begin taking off his clothes.

The homeowners told Edwards that not only did his girlfriend not live there, but they also had never heard of the woman. Nor did they know Edwards.

When police arrived, Edwards was asked to put his clothes back on but refused and spit on the officers instead. So they pulled out a Taser and zapped Edwards.

He was charged with burglary of a dwelling, battery on a law enforcement officer, and indecent exposure.
