Man Marries Instagram Girlfriend After Meeting For The First Time

A New York man proposed to his long distance boo from Instagram after meeting her for the first time at an airport. The romantic man says you don’t drag your feet when it comes to love according to CBS Local reports:

In a gamble for true #love, Erica Harris married a man just seconds after they met for the first time at an airport in California, after the two randomly connected a year ago on Instagram.

The long-distance relationship between Harris and her new husband, Arte Vann, grew with love poems and songs over social media.

The two lived across the country from each other, with Harris in California and Vann in New York.

When they met at the Ontario International Airport for the first time on Friday, Vann got straight to the point. He proposed immediately to the woman he had only seen in photos and videos from their budding online romance.

The two met in March last year after Vann posted a poem with the hashtag #7deadlysins, where Harris commented, “you had me at lust.”

The two had used the same hashtags for the poetry and writing community on Instagram when the chance encounter happened.
