Chinyelu had shut the doors of her former life in Nigeria and moved to a new city in America. While she had hopes of a new life and refreshing experiences, she didn't bank on a lifetime of love and happiness until she met Ifeanyi through the social media.
Social media might be a den of cyber bullies and in some cases fraudsters but not for beautiful Chinyelu and her hubby Ifeanyi. They both innocently signed on to the trend but got rewarded when they started messaging each other and found they were compatible.
They both took time in getting to know each other, organising regular visits and before long, they were planning to spend the rest of their lives together.
Chinyelu who told the sweet love story mentioned that meeting Ifeanyi was unexpected but as fate will have it, their love is a gift to her.
Now sharing a special part of their heart for one another, Chinyely tells her inspiring love story made possible by social media. She said:
"It was truly unexpected for me to meet Ifeanyi. I had just moved to Atlanta, GA and was at a point in my life where I wanted to focus on myself and get adjusted to my new city. All of my friends and family knew that I didn’t care for blind dates. So, if they wanted me to meet someone, I told them to have them contact me via social media. That way, I can see his picture and decide if I wanted to respond or not. On August 4, 2014, I received a message from Ifeanyi who is a great friend of one of my bridesmaids. He saw a picture of me and my good friend, and thought I was beautiful.It wasn’t until he told me he was a University of Miami Hurricanes fan (my college’s rival) that I became intrigued. I ran track at Florida State University and love my alma mater, so why would anyone want to be a University of Miami fan? I clearly had to find out why. Since then, we continued to message each other back and forth and I was starting to like what I saw in his personality."
"After a while, we decided to talk on the phone and our conversations then became even more heartfelt and meaningful. In November, while I was visiting family and friends in Houston, he arranged for us to meet at Fish and The Knife, a beautiful sushi restaurant and lounge."
Talking on how they took their love to the next level. she said: "Dinner was amazing and throughout the night I saw he had an amazing smile. After our first date, we traveled back and forth between Houston and Atlanta so that we could see each other at least twice a month. With every conversation and every visit, I saw myself falling more and more for this man. His words, his smile, his heart, and the way he looked at me, made me feel so special that I knew he was the one for me. That December, we had an amazing date at Sweet Georgia’s Juke Joint in Atlanta, GA. With jazz music filling the air, he told me how special I was to him and how much I meant to him. He told me he has never met anyone like me before and could see himself spending the rest of his life with me. It was at that point that he truly touched my heart. I had this wonderful feeling within and right then, I knew I was in love."
Wow! What a wonderful love story. NAIJ.com wishes the couple a happy married life.
