Sam Pearson of Tipperary was visiting Bratislava, Slovakia yesterday when his love life changed forever...

Sam has been travelling the world for the last seven months, and on arriving in Bratislava he hit up Tinder. Naturally. 

Been there, done that.

He got chatting to one lad in particular and they really hit it off, but due to Sam's travel plans and the other lad being stuck in work it just didn't seem like they were going to get to meet up. 

However, his mysterious Tinder match proposed that he give Sam a guided tour of Bratislava... through Whatsapp. 

And so Sam set off on the adventure of a freakin' lifetime.

Chivalry ain't dead guys. 

'I told him that I missed Asian food (having just come from Asia) so he sent me to a place with genuinely some of the best Vietnamese food I've ever had. Then I asked him if there was a café with nice coffee and maybe a Pokéstop that I could sit at alone for a while, and not look insane, so he sent me to somewhere he used to work'

The wonders of technology

'Then he sent me a picture of the place to get the best view at Bratislava castle that not many people know about'

And then came the vegan ice cream

Alone. The legend.

Every story has a happy ending though...

And I can exclusively tell you all that yes, they kissed.

Love IS real.
