It is never easy to find the man of your dreams — but for some, well, it is.
Through the Facebook page Humans of New York, an unnamed woman talked about how “effortless” she found her husband when she typed the wrong number while contacting her friend.
“I’d never had a serious boyfriend before. I certainly wasn’t engaged. But when Dad started to get really sick, we decided to have a daddy-daughter dance. We did it during my cousin’s wedding. My dad chose the song: ‘If I Didn’t Have You’, by Amanda Marshall. When he pa
ssed away I engraved my favorite lyric from the song onto a necklace, along with a copy of his thumbprint,” she shared.
Because her father had been her “very best friend”, she got deeply devastated and felt completely lost without him, so she tried to help herself and start over again by travelling from one place to another.
“In 2018, I took a trip to Cambodia to visit a friend who was teaching there, and that’s when I discovered the green dress. It was in a small shop. And it seemed like a perfect bridesmaid’s dress for an upcoming wedding. Since I didn’t have any cash on me, I took a photo of the dress, and I texted it to my friend once I got home to Canada,” she said.
She, however, dialed the wrong number and sent the message to another person.
“His name was Sean. He was on a work visa from Scotland. And we ended up having a funny little back-and-forth,” she continued. “Eventually, we decided to meet at Starbucks. And to be honest, I wanted it to work. My entire life people had been assuring me that it would be effortless when I met ‘The One.’ And what could be more effortless than a wrong number? There was instant chemistry between us.”
Fast forward, Sean is now her husband; giving meaning to the line of the song engraved on her pendant: This love is a gift.
