What Twitter has joined together, let no man put asunder. Social media has been a blessing to many people and others have found love talking with one another on that platform.

Katheryn Mador and Michael Oyinkuro met on Twitter through a mutual friend in 2014 and it's been a journey of love and romance between the pair from then onwards.

Sharing their love story exclusively with Pulse Weddings, bride-to-be Katheryn said she was retweeted into Michael's timeline on Twitter in 2014, but their romance really began when she tweeted that she 'wanted to hear love stories from people truly in love', little did she know that it was the beginning of their own love story.

Michael replied quickly, telling her to send him a Twitter DM if she wanted to hear a love story. And she did.

A year later he proposed to his lady love and the pair are set to wed March 26, 2016.

How we met:

You know love they say happens in the most unimaginable places. So I've been on Twitter for a while, made a lot of great friends there...some became family over time while I lost touch with others. 

Oh well, in early 2014, this random guy that had "an officer and a gentleman" as bio on Twitter followed me (we have a mutual friend. So this friend retweeted me into his TL). I am very particular about the people I follow on Twitter ( I check their first 20-30 tweets and their media usually as a parameter to follow back or not...petty I know, but it helps me somehow) lol.

Back to my story, I assumed based on my judgement of his first few tweets that it was ok to follow him back so I did. He subs me minutes after I follow him... I caught my sub. Well... We get talking on the TL first about meat pie then work then he disappears ...not like I was looking for him though.

The tweet that started it all

Days later he appears and says he's been busy with work. Later, I randomly tweeted that I wanted to hear love stories from people truly in love and he asked me to come into his DM and I'll hear them...we started sending direct messages to each other, and slowly I got used to talking to him almost always.

It was easy to fall in love with Michael, he is super amazing. The distance between us was never a problem thanks to FaceTime and Airtel lol. Well, here I am writing my own love story with this amazing man...he never told me the love story he asked me to come to his DM and hear.

The Proposal

Fast forward July 2015, on the day Michael proposed, we were supposed to go to a friend's wedding together then I realised he started picking fights with me for no reason, I thought I was going to run mad.

On our way to the wedding, before we got to the reception he proposed in the car. He asked me to grow old with him but he wasn't kneeling. Of course I said yes, I mean I was wondering what took him so long to ask, I couldn't even imagine growing old without him. Later that evening, I made him do the whole kneeling and marriage proposal the proper way and It's been love all the way.

We are set to get married on the 26th of March . Shout out to Twitter for bringing the love of my life to me. In fact there'll be a canopy for my Twitter family on the 26th.

How we met:

I'm not such a good story teller, Katheryn is. But I bless the day I got on Twitter and met this beautiful girl. She's changed my life in ways only she can understand and I can't imagine forever without her. Thank you Twitter, thank you Miskoom (He retweeted her to my TL), and thank you @Umutyer, let's do forever together. I love you.
