Have you tried the hottest new dating app? It's called UberPool, and like Tinder, it uses your geographic location, but sets you up under the supervision of a certified driver. Behold its greatest success story.
Hayley Mitchell called an UberPool to take her home after a bad date, and ended up meeting a hot new one. The 27-year-old got in a car in London last April when she met Charlie Algar, 28. The Daily Mail got the full treatment for the inevitable film adaptation.
Mitchell meant to order a private Uber, but accidentally pressed UberPool, hitching a ride with destiny. When she saw on her phone that Charlie was arriving, she assumed it was the name of the driver. But when she got in the backseat, she said "Oh, you're Charlie," and the guy assumed that she knew him personally.
He thought that I knew him. I went along with it and said: ‘I can’t believe you don’t remember me’ and he looked very pale all of a sudden. He went on for about 10 minutes listing all these places we might have known each other from.
The two spent the 10-minute ride trying to "find out" where they knew each other from. When the car reached his home, she came clean that they didn't really know each other. But he wanted to get to know her, asking, "What are you doing this weekend?" before getting out of the car.
Two days later, Mitchell got a text from "Charlie Uber," and the two have been a couple ever since.
They couple moved in together in October 2016, now sharing the same Uber pick-up and drop-off destination.
"We always joke we should send the Uber driver a bottle of Champagne!" Mitchell told The Daily Mail.
In the movie version, the couple absolutely gets the same driver on the way to the airport for their honeymoon.
