Facebook really does bring the world together.
When Schuler Benson tried to sign into his mobile Facebook account, he was already signed into a stranger's profile. After posting on the page several times, he found out it was a woman named Celeste Zendler from Boulder, Colorado.
Six years ago today, a glitch in Facebook mobile logged me into the account of a woman I'd never met. We were married this past June.
Schuler said, "She and I had never met, never lived in the same state, had no mutual friends in real life or online, shared no Facebook interests."
After a week of going back and forth, she friend requested him and the problem was solved. In 2013 they met in person and later that year they moved in together.
Schuler cleverly proposed to Celeste by sneaking into her Facebook. He posted a picture of an engagement ring on Facebook and wrote, "I’m coming back here. Celeste, I’m hacking into your Facebook account for the second time (on purpose for the first time ;)) to ask you a question….Will you marry me?"
They were married on June 21, 2015.
Schuler said, "I found my partner, my best friend, my great love via a simple glitch in social media. There are awful things in this world, but sometimes there’s beauty, too."
We couldn't agree more!
