We often heard stories of relationships that started from online dating that ended up in failure. But although many people believe that meeting someone online has a potential drawback, there are still people who believe that online romance can really turn into a successful long-term relationship.
An example of that is this love story of a Vietnamese woman named Nguyen Van Anh, who met her husband through social media and eventually married him after 10 months of knowing each other.
After graduating from Hanoi University of Science and Technology in 2015, Nguyen immediately found a stable job. But despite having a successful career, she still feels like something was missing from her life.
Nguyen wished to finally meet the man of her dreams who would complete her life.
Back in May 2016, Nguyen was scrolling through Facebook when she spotted a vague photo of a man in her idol’s social media page. Thinking that the man might know her idol, Nguyen sent him a message on Facebook, asking if he could introduce them.
The man she messaged was Dang Tuan, who is also a Vietnamese when he received Nguyen’s message, he immediately replied that he actually did not know her idol personally. However, the two of them continued their conversation online. They enjoyed talking to each other and eventually formed a connection, which later bloomed into a romance.
Dang Tuan is living in Russia because of his work but despite the time difference and their distance they didn’t let their blossoming relationship get ruined.
The pair officially became a couple in November 2016, after talking online for half a year. After 10 months of dating online, the couple then decided to get married.
Unfortunately, Nguyen’s mother was not pleased with her decision. Her parents initially expressed their objection and warned her that marrying someone she had met online for a short period of time is something that she would regret in the future.
But to prove that his love for their daughter is pure, Dang Tuan traveled all the way to Vietnam to meet her parents and ask for their blessings. It took them some more convincing before her parents finally allowed them to get married.
After that, the couple began their wedding preparation. Nguyen decided to go to Russia to finalize the details of their wedding. But when she arrived there, she was surprised to discover something her fiancé had been keeping from her for almost a year. It turns out that he was actually a rich businessman and the general manager of a well-known international fashion brand.
The humble man admitted that he had purposely hidden his real identity as he didn’t want Nguyen to know about this yet. He also added that he wants to know if she will love him for who he is and not because of his money
Nguyen and Dang got married in a lavish wedding at a five-star hotel in Hanoi, Vietnam on April 9, 2017. The couple now lives in Russia with their two beautiful children.
