Patrick Khoo, 34, and Christina Bellantoni, 36, met at a bar in Santorini, Greece:
She's from: San Jose, California
He's from: Adelaide, Australia
Relationship status: Married
"Back when I lived in London, I went to Greece with a friend for my 32nd birthday. On the night before my birthday, my buddy and I were at a bar when two lovely ladies walked in and sat down next to us. I tried to engage in conversation, but while one smiled, the other blew me off — and then they left. After midnight (my official birthday!), my buddy convinced me to go to one last bar, and those same girls were there. My friend told them it was my birthday, so the rest of the night went much better, especially because I hit it off with the one who’d originally smiled, Christina. We spent the night drinking, laughing, and dancing. Christina told me that she lived in Washington D.C., and I told her about my pre-existing plans to visit D.C. later that year (I actually had tickets to New York but was taking a gamble)."
"We spent the next day together, exchanged info at the end, and stayed in touch via Facebook over the next few months. I visited her in D.C., and a couple weeks after that, Christina had a work conference in Zurich, so I flew over from London — and that's when we talked about making a long-distance relationship work. We dated for about a year, with many flights between D.C. and London, and then I proposed in D.C. She said yes! We've since moved to L.A., where Christina got a new job, and we couldn't be happier."
