Subway “Love at First Sight”

I’m not sure if any of you have seen this story, but it’s been all over the internet the past few days. It comes from New York City, USA.

Here’s how the story goes:

Patrick Moberg saw a lovely young woman while riding the subway. He was immediately attracted to her, and he knew he wanted to talk to her. Unfortunately, she exited the subway before he could get up the courage to approach her. He lost sight of her in the crowd of commuters.

He decided to enlist the help of his fellow New Yorkers to find her. He created a website, ( complete with a hand-drawn illustration of himself and the mystery girl.

Against all odds, he found her. One of the young woman’s friends saw Patrick’s website and suspected that she knew who he was looking for. She sent a picture through her cell phone, and Patrick confirmed that she was indeed the one. The young woman turned out to be Camille Hayton, and intern from Australia. They eventually went on a date and hit it off.

Something tells me that wouldn’t work too well for me here in Manila. Imagine if drew a picture describing a beautiful, petite morena in a nurse’s uniform. I don’t think that would narrow it down very much (especially here in the “U-belt” area). If I see the girl of my dreams in the LRT, I better take my chances and seize the moment. I’d advise all my male readers to do the same.


  1. How would you know kuya if she is the
    girl of ur dream…hhmm love at first sight? do u believe in that?

  2. I’m not a big believer in love at first sight–I think true love takes time to develop. Regardless, it is an interesting story.

  3. hahaha..this is pretty amazing…lolz
