This is so cute!
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 ├óΓé¼┬ª 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)!!!
Awwww!!!! She’s pretty shy and he is definitely camera happy too — LOLz!!
