I'm eternallly in love with love, and stories like this make me love love even more.
Remi Adekoya (pictured above) is a Nigerian writer with the UK Guardian. In May 2013, he wrote an article titled 'Goodluck Jonathan's report card for Nigeria? Must try harder'. A young lady named Sede Alonge (pictured above with Remi) based in Nigeria dropped a comment on the article which spurred a back and forth conversation between both of them on the newspaper's online discussion forum.
About a year later, (They have since met physically) Sede Alonge and Remi Adekoya are engaged and planning to get married this year. Now, how romantic is that?

The part that concerns me is that these two found love in the most unusual place, where they were undoubtedly neither searching, nor expecting to find love. That's just the best, most amazing kind.
So dear readers, keep commenting. You can never tell who's falling in love with your comments. (Im'ma be a bit naughty and add that some people are already in love with Memphis for his comments. A few be lovin' Steele, my 'disappearing-act' darling for his comments. But Memphis', this I know for a fact as a few of my friends hola at me to say "who is this Memphis guy?". Hehehe.
Anyways I've always said its my dream, which I know will one day be a reality for at least two people to find love on ThelmaThinks.
