This Is The Most Random But Best Love Story!

You know when you get those random friend requests from people you don’t know?

Straight away.. deleted.. right?

Well, not for everyone.

Rebecca Luff, 18, didn’t know Michael Young when he added her on Facebook two years ago but one little detail made her pay attention.

The 25-year-old live in Adelaide and she decided to accept the friend request.

Once the couple started chatting, on Facebook and Skype they got along really well, before falling in love.

They made the relationship official in December 2015 and Michael went to Rebecca’s home town of Plymouth in the UK in September 2016 before they spent three weeks travelling together to Europe.

Rebecca told the Plymouth Herald : "When we first met it was like I had known him my whole life, it wasn't awkward at all. We just clicked.

"When we first started talking, I never thought it would be this serious.

"Nobody took us seriously for a long time; I think everyone thought it was all a bit bizarre."

Rebecca explained how leaving each other at the airport, "your stereotypical, movie-style, upsetting goodbye" as they didn't know when they would next see each other.

The couple, who have now not seen each other since October 3, have now been dating for over a year and a half.

Rebecca will make her first trip to Australia later this year, when she takes a three-month sabbatical to spend time with Michael in Australia.

he said: "I'm so excited to finally be able to go and visit the places he regularly tells me about, and of course finally get to meet his family and friends properly.

"It's strange because I already feel like I know them, we're Facebook friends and I regularly speak to them when we're on Skype to each other.

"His Nan is letting me borrow her car whilst I'm there so I can travel around whilst Michael is at work, which is lovely.

"The best part is, everyone is so supportive, and my Dad always tells me to do these crazy things whilst I'm young."

The couple plan on travelling around Australia as Rebecca really wants to visit Bondi Beach.
