Woman who swapped seats on flight gives play-by-play of possible love connection



Twitter is in love with the love story of a couple, who met on a flight in the U.S.as shared by a fellow passenger, Rosey Blair and her boyfriend, Houston Hardaway, on Tuesday.

"Last night on a flight home, my boyfriend and I asked a woman to switch seats with me so we could sit together", Blair explained on Twitter. When the woman and her new male seat partner-described by Blair as "hunky"-started to hit it off, Blair breathlessly chronicled the whole thing in an Instagram story more than 40 slides long, which she then posted to Twitter".

The thread on Twitter has since gained more than 300,000 retweets and more than 800,000 likes. "They were both athletic, and cute, and they struck up a conversation immediately".

Blair shared a series of photos with captions detailing everything from what they discussed to slight elbow movements to the food they shared mid-flight. She received multiple messages from people reacting to the story and even gained some attention from celebrities who saw the thread.

Blair said they even joked about the fact that a love story could result from the new sitting arrangement - and it did.

Ms Blair also noted that both were personal trainers and vegetarians, and neither of them wore a wedding ring.

Once in the air, Blair documented the interactions, how close their arms were to each other on a flight without air-conditioning, their life goals and made sure to mention the lovebirds escaped to the bathroom at the same time. "I think it was pretty easy for me to want to exchange numbers with her and get to know her a little bit better".

The man's identity has since been revealed, a former professional soccer player named Euan Holden.
