Way out of the radius.
Thomas Gallagher, also known as redditor u/lagger, performed the incredible feat of following through on a promise he made to a Tinder match. Even more exceptional is that the promise was to take her to China.
Gallagher told his story on Reddit, starting his thread, "6 months ago I opened a tinder convo by telling a girl I would take her to China. Yesterday we landed in Beijing."
I was killing time swiping while traveling for work in a city (Chicago) 700 miles from where I live. Just out of curiosity/boredom I messaged a girl about one of her travel photos. Subsequently I told her I would take her to China if she took me to New Zealand. She agreed. We have been flying to see each other each weekend for the past 6 months and landed in Beijing yesterday. We're booked for New Zealand in February.
She hasn't tried to murder me yet and still has not revealed any signs of being a bot. I honesty have not been happier.
Because it's Reddit, Gallagher made sure to provide proof of his story, in the form of vertical iPhone footage of their flight to Beijing.
Gallagher admits that meeting on Tinder is not the romantic fairy tale he dreamed of, but he certainly made it as romantic as possible. "I guess everyone wants some Princess Bride story about their relationship," he wrote, "But some people meet on Tinder. As terrible as that sounds."
