Dduring a recent business trip to Chicago, Thomas Gallagher was alone and bored in his hotel room swiping away on Tinder, when he came across a girl named Grace who had some interesting travel photos on her profile.
After they both matched, he messaged her about the photo, they struck up a conversation, and BAM — just like that — they were flying to China together!
Whoa, whoa, whoa, what?!?! Here's how Thomas tells it:
"I told her I would take her to China if she took me to New Zealand. We spent a month talking before we actually met in person. I was [in Chicago] for work and wasn't even able to meet her when we matched. I probably wouldn't have even if I was able. [And now] we have been flying to see each other each weekend for the past 6 months and landed in Beijing yesterday. We're booked for New Zealand in February."
AH-mazing! This couple went from nothing, to Tinder matches, to long-distance dating, to traveling around the world together in just a few months!!
So perhaps maybe you can really find love on Tinder!
Thomas seems pretty amused by the whole situation, too:
"She hasn't tried to murder me yet and still has not revealed any signs of being a bot. I honesty have not been happier. I would have never expected anything like this. We both laugh at it still … that this is 'our story'. I guess everyone wants some Princess Bride story about their relationship. But some people meet on Tinder. As terrible as that sounds."
A little weird, for sure, but mostly adorbz!!!
Thomas even grabbed film of them flying to China together! See proof of the romance (below)!!!
