Before any Tinder and other matchmaking applications, social media can also be a mainstay to find a life partner. This woman is the one who tried her luck. And what happened three years later was not expected.
Lila Apostolou is the name of the woman trying to find a mate on Twitter. In 2014, he wrote the status of ‘looking for a man who wants to be a date for a wedding.’ Lila also wrote, the man will have more value if it can bring a baby that can be claimed as their child.
Lila’s Twitter posting then became viral. Hundreds of people retweet on twitter looking for a date. “Until” there is a man named Phil Gibson responded to the tweet. “I can do it, I have suits and other things,” wrote Phil.
Phil and Lila then tweeted each other. But in the end Lila did not go with Phil while attending her sister’s wedding. It’s just him and Phil still meet face-to-face in their weekly tweet.
And exactly three years after replying to the tweet, Phil and Lila are more than just greeting each other on Twitter. They are married. On July 4, 2017 yesterday, Phil uploaded a picture of himself and Lila wearing wedding dress. Both are in the car.
“Successfully done it. This is me and my wife @Lila when we are on our way back to civil registry,” he wrote in a caption. Lila also wrote a similar thing on July 5, 2017. “Almost three years ago, I can say reader, I married her,” Lila wrote while uploading a reply tweet to Phil in 2014.
At that time he wrote something he did not expect right- Right now, See you at the altar, Lila replied to Phil’s tweet. Twitter users were so impressed with the story of Lila and Phil. Some do not think that ‘matchmaking’ on Twitter could end up in the aisle. Some also call their story like a fairy tale.
