i was really touched when i learned about how a new york guy searched for the girl of his dreams whom he had met during a subway ride~
here is the video of him discussing about the whole experience~
WHO said romance was dead? A New York Romeo went to extraordinary lengths to track down the girl of his dreams after spotting her on the subway only to discover she is from Melbourne.
Patrick Moberg, a Brooklyn web designer, experienced love at first sight when he saw 22-year-old Camille Hayton on Manhattan’s No.5 train on Sunday night US time.
He had been working up the courage to speak to her but lost her in the crush of commuters getting off the subway at the Bowling Greenstop.
Mr Moberg knew he had to track down the mysterious brunette, so he devoted a website to finding her - www.nygirlofmydreams.com
On the site he drew a picture of his subway sweetheart with a red flower in her “fancy braided” brown hair, blue shorts, blueleggings and rosy red cheeks.
Smitten, he also posted his email address and mobile phone number.
His unlikely cyberspace searched captivated New Yorkers receiving coverage in the New York Post and on local TV stations.
His romantic search paid off, after a friend of Ms Hayton realised she was the girl he was searching for. They plan to meet up for coffee on the weekend.
Ms Hayton, from Kew who is working as a magazine intern in New York, told the New York Post:
“This is crazy. I can’t believe it’s happening.”
Mr Moberg, 21, was also surprised at his luck in finding the girl who had stolen his heart in city of millions of people.
He said he had received lots of responses after creating the website dedicated to finding Ms Hayton.
“Some people said, ‘I’m not the girl, but you’re so adorable, pick me instead’,” Mr Moberg said.
On Tuesday night US time, a friend of Ms Hayton texted Mr Moberg and said she had recognised the drawing as her friend.
“I replied back and said that would be amazing if you could contact her and then I let it go,” he said.
Soon after he received an email with a photograph of Ms Haytonwhich asked: “Is this your dream girl?”
Ms Hayton, who graduated from the University of California at Santa Cruz, wrote back to Mr Morberg saying she was unsure whether she could live up to his expectations.
But Mr Moberg responded that “there are no expectations”.
He wrote on his website yesterday that he had been put in touch with the girl of his dreams and “we’ll see what happens!”.
“Here’s where it gets tricky. In our best interest, there will be no more updates to this website. Unlike all the romantic comedies and bad pop songs, you’ll have to make up your own ending for this,” he wrote.
