Yu Mei, 46, lives in Foshan, Guangdong province and runs her own clothing store. The monotony of her daily work made her feel very tired but after work she had no one around to be with following her divorce four years ago. Her children worked in other cities to earn money and her friends all had their own families to take care of. Looking at her friends with their families, Yu Mei realized that it was time to find someone for her to be with.
She came across the dating site and within minutes Richard began talking to her. Richard, who lives in New York, USA, was fascinated by Yu Mei's profile on the website. He wrote to Yu Mei almost every day, sending out chat invitations. At first, Yu Mei didn’t often write back to Richard because of her poor English but Richard did not give up and insisted on carrying on talking to Yu Mei. Gradually, Yu Mei was moved by Richard's persistence and began to write back to him more often. She used dictionaries, mobile apps and so on to learn English and Richard also started to learn Chinese for Yu Mei. Richard told us that learning Chinese is hard but that he is willing to try hard for the one he loves.
Eventually they established a very stable relationship and last month Richard flew to China to meet his sweetheart. Both Yu Mei and Richard were very happy to see each other. Although their language communication is still a little difficult, their willingness to work hard to resolve that and to change for each other is very touching, isn't it?
May their love last forever.
