Love Story: We met through Tinder, and he left Poland to stay with me in Philippines

Mariel met her soul mate Dominik through Tinder, but they both felt like they had known each other for years.

Mariel also realised that she and Dominik had the similar marks on their stomachs, and moles on their heads and necks.

Mariel shares her love story:

"It was May 8, 2016 when we found each other on Tinder. It was very good to chat with him, and we both felt like we had known each other for years.

"It only took us over an hour to chat and discover that we have a lot in common.

"He told me that it was his first vacation in the Philippines and I was the first girl he met through this dating app.

"During that time I invited him to come with me on May 10 to visit this popular falls in Cebu city, Kawasan Falls.

"We both enjoyed the day, laughed and got to know each other more.

"I even discovered that we both have the same marks on our stomachs and we have the same moles on our necks and heads.

"He told me there is no coincidence, this was destiny. After our trip he asked me if I can stay with him and get to know each other more.

"I said yes, and I think I fell in love at first sight. He was the perfect guy for me. 

"The next day we travelled again and visited Oslob and Bohol. It was a very good time, and I enjoyed every second of it.

"When we left Bohol and he was planning to go to Manila to visit his friend, I asked him until when is he planning to stay in Philippines.

"I was so shocked with his answer when he told me his not going back to Poland.

"He wanted to stay in Philippines with me and bring me to Poland that December to meet his parents.

"I was so happy because I never expected him to do that. He also works online which why its ok if he lives in another country.

"We lived in Manila for a couple of months and went back to Cebu to fix some papers.

"And without any hassle, we got all the papers we needed and I got my visa after nine days.

"Right now I am here in Poland, meeting his family and friends, all of whom are such good people. I am so blessed.

"I enjoy everything including the snow. I always dreamt about it since I was a child, and now I can see and touch it for real.

"I am so happy with Dominik right now. He is the perfect guy for me, and I love him so much.

"On Feb 20, we will go back to Philippines and there we will start travelling around Asia.

"We both dream about travelling around the world and this year is the perfect time for it.

"This will be the beginning of our journey."
