It’s pretty obvious that modern relationships don’t look anything like our parents’ once did.
People today are dating with fewer attachments, less commitment, and more “free spirit” when it comes to choosing a partner.
Would You Move To Thailand With Your Hinge Date?
A 24-year-old woman from the U.K. is hitting back at her online haters who said that her whirlwind relationship won’t last.
Commenters’ skepticism came when she admitted on TikTok that she moved to Thailand with a Hinge date after meeting him one time.
It All Started In The U.K. On A Dating App
TikTok influencer Summer Fox matched with a Canadian man named Matt Giffen, 26, on Hinge while he was visiting London, England.
She explains how they had an immediate connection that was threatened by his return home to Canada later that week.
Matt Was “Love Bombing” Summer Before They Got To Know Each Other
Giffen had even offered for Fox to return to Canada with him before they had ever met in person, according to her viral TikTok video that has racked up more than 4 million views.
Fox, who had just lost her job as a barista, was actually keen on returning home with him if they “fell in love.”
She Was Relieved To Be Fired From Her 9-5 Job
Talking to her TikTok followers, Fox explained, “I was happy the day I got sacked because I felt free…and then the next day I met Matt. If I didn’t get sacked I wouldn’t have met Matt because I’d be working and he was only in London for one day.”
She really felt as though fate played a role in their meeting.
Summer Began Vlogging Their Entire Relationship On TikTok
Making the most of their time together, they planned a weekend trip to Manchester where the two made further plans to travel the world together.
Viewers were skeptical about how the whole situation would play out with some people wishing them the best and others judging their confidence in the new relationship.
They Booked One-Way Tickets To Asia
Instead of Matt returning to Canada, they packed their bags and booked their flights to Asia to kick off their self-made rom-com.
Knowing how much they had in common, the two were excited to take on an adventure and get to know one another at the same time.
She Knew That People Were Rooting For Their Story Online
Hopping on an international flight with someone you just met online might sound like a waking nightmare to some people, but for Summer, it was a dream come true.
She admitted to followers that her family was hardly surprised because she “lives for that kind of spontaneity” and loves to feel as though she’s the main character in her own movie.
They Made It To Thailand
Summer continues to update her TikTok fans, letting them know that they did, in fact, make it to Thailand where they are living out their movie romance dreams and “falling more in love every day.”
She regularly shares clips and videos of the two living out their romantic vacation despite the critical comments that still flood in.
People Have Different Expectations For Them
Even though there are hate comments suggesting the relationship is fake for social media or a short-term fling, there are thousands of other commenters who are rooting for Summer and Matt.
A lot of people have praised them for their confidence and sporadic trust in one another.
They’re Living Their Best Lives
Clearly, the comments under Summer’s videos (good or bad) are not fazing the couple as they soak up their cross-world adventure together.
The social media personality also admitted that the online attention was awesome in a way. She said: “I loved that it went viral, it added to the excitement, and both me and Matt love the support!”
