A couple who met on Tinder flew to Beijing, China six months after they planned it in their first chat online.

Thomas Gallagher, a man who met the girl of his dreams in the popular dating app,  just proved that Tinder romance is indeed possible.

In a story he shared on Reddit, Gallagher revealed that it all began when he was travelling for work in Chicago. Out of curiosity and boredom, Gallagher decided to send a message to a girl named Grace about one of her travel photos.

Japanese Kids Are So Independent They Travel To School On Their Own

This SBS 2 documentary shows us what it’s like to be a young student in Japan where parents expect you to be self-reliant at such an early age.

How would you feel if you see a very young child walking to school on his own? Would you be impressed? Or would you be alarmed about the fact that a child is travelling by himself without any adult companion? It’s a scary world out there, right?

According to the short documentary by SBS 2, this is a typical sight in Japan.

Although most tourists are shocked to see little kids walking by themselves, the practice is actually common in the country. This is a huge difference when compared with Western countries where parents make the effort to drive their children to school on a daily basis.

Couple Takes a Bittersweet “Divorce Selfie” To Celebrate Maturity

The absence of romantic love does not signify the absence of love altogether.

Divorced couple Chris and Shannon Neuman aren't letting their choice to grow apart turn them into bitter enemies. Instead, they revel in the fact that they have gracefully decided to end their marriage by posting a photo with the hashtag: #teamneuman #divorceselfie. It’s the first time in the history of couple selfies.

The photo resonated among thousands of people and went viral. I think it’s because of the brutal honesty and maturity of the couple.

This Couple’s “Drunk History” Video For Their Wedding is Absolutely Epic!

You will never look at weddings the same way again.

Weddings are supposed to be fun, right? They should be memorable and fun because it signifies the beginning of a new chapter of a couple's life together. However, it isn't always the case. Most of the time, we find ourselves wondering why we attended a certain wedding when the toast is just boring or the couple's video is just as lifeless as it can be.

Good thing Justin Wilman and Jillian Sipkins thought of a better alternative to the boring wedding toast. Since they realized that people would probably ask how they got together (a lot!) and they understand how it feels to sit through the boring traditional wedding toast, Justin and Jillian came up with a creative video of their story a la Comedy Central's "Drunk History".

Thanks to a bottle of whiskey, two bottles of wine, half a bottle of vodka, and a little help from their friends, none of the guests needed to have an excuse to leave their wedding. I'm sure you'd enjoy being there too!
