You know what they say, love happens when you least expect it and this girl’s recent story on the popular page, UTAR Confessions, may have just got you believing in fate again.
According to her post, she met her current boyfriend through rather unlikely circumstances; in fact, he was her Grab driver! Unbelievable? Well, continue reading but be warned, it may be a slightly long read!
“Two years ago after my finals, my friends and I decided to head to KLCC to watch a movie and de-stress but on that day, the friend who was supposed to fetch me could not make it. At first I wanted to take the train, but it was getting late and all my friends were already waiting for me there. So, I downloaded the Grab app and proceeded to get on my first ever Grab ride.”
“When the ride arrived, I got into the backseat and the polite young man greeted me ‘good morning’. He knew that it was my first Grab ride and reassured me that he was a good person who was just making some money to lessen his family’s burden.”
“We were almost reaching my destination when he suddenly asked me how I’d be making my way home. I told him that I planned on taking the train and he actually offered to give me a ride home. I was too shy to accept his offer and said that I did not know what time I would be going home. He told me that he would wait for me and gave me his number when I got down from the car.” Sounds like love at first sight!
The girl went in search of her friends and related her encounter to them. They went on their merry way and when it was almost time to go home, the girl decided to go to the toilet and passed her bag to her friends. Guess what they did next?
“When I came out from the toilet, my friends were laughing hysterically and they told me that they had actually messaged the Grab driver to come pick me up. I was super mortified by their actions but not long after, he called and told me that he was waiting for me at the same place he dropped me off.”
“I was scared of letting him wait, so I quickly ran over to his car and got in. He told me he was pleasantly surprised that I would actually contact him again but I told him that it was all my friends’ doings. Nevertheless, we laughed and joked all the way home.”
“I tried to pay for my ride but he refused to accept my money, so I left the money on the seat before getting out of the car. However, he actually put the money back in my mailbox with a note saying, ‘It’s okay, next time you can treat me to a meal instead’.” Wah, smooth move!
You would think that the story ends here but nope, the girl actually managed to book the same Grab driver again a few months later. Recounting her story, she said she believes that it was fate and from the second ride onwards, they became good friends.
He was thoughtful and caring towards her until one day when he was sending her home, he suddenly stopped by the roadside. The girl thought that there was something wrong with the car as the guy went to the boot to take something out, which turned out to be a bouquet of baby’s breath. She had told him before that baby’s breath is her favourite flower!
He said, “Perhaps in a past life I had promised that I will find you and finally, I managed to find you in this life. Once, I thought that you would just be one of the many passengers that I would fetch around but I find that I can’t get you out of my mind. I don’t want to lose you as you are one of the most important people in my life. Can you please be my girlfriend?” So romantic leh!
Of course, she said yes, otherwise we wouldn’t be writing about this! She ends her post by saying that she decided to share this story as it was her boyfriend’s birthday that day and both of them are still as happy as ever. He is no longer a Grab driver now, and has found a better job whereas she has already graduated.
Finally, the girl leaves an advice for everyone, saying, “Don’t worry if you haven’t found your true love yet as they might have gotten lost on the way to look for you. Trust that they will find you one day. If you are half of a couple, then make sure to treasure your relationship before you lose it.”
We wish the happy couple all the best and stay sweet!
