What started as a random act of kindness, turned into the most awkward realisation for a UK man, which eventually led to the meeting of his true love.


Sussex, United Kingdom – Twitter user “Sixth Form Poet” shared the most awkward story about how he met his wife earlier this month. The tale is so bizarre and hilarious that people are begging for it to be made into a movie.

The story starts after the passing of his father, a man he was incredibly close with in life. He would regularly visit the grave and take flowers with him. That was when he noticed the tombstone next door never had any. He felt terrible, and as a random act of kindness, he started buying flowers for that grave too. That is when the plot thickens and gets a little funny.

After his realisation, Sixth Form Poet decided to go and apologise to the victims. Once again, he bought flowers and went over to their graves to place them and say sorry for honouring a murderer all those years. That is when fate stepped in…

People are so taken with the story; they are desperate to see it turned into a movie. We would pay good money to watch this movie too! Have you ever done something embarrassing that actually helped you meet your soulmate? Let us know in the comment section.
