Mike is a typical American man who worked hard and made money but he had still never been married. He is now 62 years old and felt very lonely every day at home, so he signed up to the dating site.
One afternoon, he opened the dating site and saw Yan Xinís picture, so he took the initiative to say hello to her. Yan Xin, 43, lives in Qingdao, Shandong province in China. At first she didn't take Mike's approach seriously, after all he was 19 years older than her. But Mike's persistence impressed her so, although Yan Xin's English was not very good, she tried to reply to his letter using translation software to communicate.
Exchanging dozens of letters helped them get to know each other better and gradually Yan Xin realized that neither age nor nationality were issues in the face of love. She and Mike became very close and they realized that they had a surprising number of interests in common.
After a year and a half of exchanging letters, Mike decided to travel to China to visit the woman he had come to love.
When they met, they hugged each other with great joy and emotion. Now they live in Yan Xin's home and are so very happy together.
