LONDON (Reuters) - A British man has met and married a 22-year-old woman after, by his own account, dreaming of her phone number and then sending her a text message.
David Brown, 24, says he woke up one morning after a night out with friends with a telephone number constantly running through his head. He decided to contact it, sending a message saying "Did I meet you last night?."
Random recipient Michelle Kitson was confused and wary at first but decided to reply and the two began exchanging messages. Eventually they met and fell in love.
"It was really weird but I was absolutely hooked," Kitson told the Daily Mail newspaper. "My mum and dad kept saying 'But he could be an axe murderer', but I knew there was something special about it."
This could only happen in America, or in this case, the United Kingdom. What would the equivalent to this have been in times of yore? Would someone dream up a person’s address and send them a lavender-scented letter complete with daguerreotype? This is an incredible leap of faith for this women to answer him back. But is this really so different from toothing or meeting someone via Craiglist? If this doesn't work out for the couple maybe they can find new love via smoke signals or a direct mail campaign.
