One couple from the United Kingdom, who met on a dating app, took the word "spontaneity" to a whole other level after they wed each other during their first date.
Sarah and Paul Edwards matched on the dating app Bumble on Dec. 13, as reported by The Argus on Jan. 1. The two talked for the first time on the phone on Dec. 22 before deciding to elope and marry in Las Vegas, United States on Christmas Eve, in what was supposed to be their first date.
"I don't even know what he looked like at all, really," Sarah recounted on "Good Morning Britain" on Dec. 28. "I've seen three pictures so it was just all a bit of a whirlwind because we got married on the same day."
Paul said they have connected "on so many levels" that the idea of being physically attracted on first meeting did not matter that much. The two of them both got bored of dating sites and apps because of how "everything seems a little bit too fake." However, when they started talking to each other, they both saw something real that became more important than physical attraction.
"What if you haven't found each other physically attractive?" the morning programme host, Ranvir Singh asked. "Would you still get married?"
